Leading glass processor TuffX recently supplied Herefordshire’s Atrium Conservatories with 12 high quality conservatory glass panels, specified for a local residential project built by the orangery and conservatory specialist.

Each measuring 10.12m2, Atrium installers fitted the panels to create a lantern effect roof above an African Sapele hardwood structure and, having established the building was south facing, worked with TuffX to ensure all panels were manufactured using Ambi Ultra glass. Ambi Ultra is an option that offers 91% heat deflection and will ensure maximum solar protection even in the strongest sunlight. Finished with Teknos microporus paint, the conservatory includes arched detailing on each of the windows, making for an attractive end result that the homeowners – and Atrium Conservatories – were highly pleased with.

Atrium Conservatories’ Managing Director Bernard Rump said: “Conservatories are a popular choice for families who want to expand their homes and are often spaces frequented by pets or children. The glass TuffX provided is a market leader in solar heat reflection, with exceptional light transmission properties – just 8% – and are self-cleaning.”

Graham Price, Managing Director for TuffX says that the use of Ambience products on briefs such as this makes an enormous difference to the end user: “The Ambience range offers a wide variety of tinted conservatory glass roof options to suit homeowners’ exact requirements and style preferences, each providing year-round comfort and a reduction in energy bills. When we work alongside companies like Atrium, we are giving customers the best possible combinations in aesthetic design, and practical solution.”
