TuffX Processed Glass are always developing ways to give their customers what they want. With demand for ever larger conservatories increasing, the size of the roof naturally will increase accordingly.
TuffX decided to introduce glass to fit these ever increasing design projects and they are one of the few companies who offer Oversized glass with a projection of up to 4000mm.
One of the key elements in some designs is the limitation of glass unit size. This meaning the size of a glass roof unit has limitations dictated to by either weight, span or generally the customers own design needs.
This results in unsightly muntin bars having to be installed causing future remedial work of self-cleaning properties and they can be visually unattractive to some.
With the introduction of the 4000mm oversized glass, it allows Tuff X to offer much larger and higher performance roofs to be built without the problems of some more traditional roofs. This will result in more expansive and practical room space for their customers.
One of TuffX’s clients have recently fitted an Oversized roof to a family home in Bristol. The family was looking to modernise their conservatory roof from plain glass that had no benefits, to a self-cleaning glass with solar controlled properties.
With their old glass roof having leaked previously, it was easy to realise that the cause of the leakage was coming from the muntin bar. The family were shown various samples of the glass and talked in detail about the benefits of having the oversized panels installed.
It was a clear winner for the family and they decided to update their whole roof with the oversized glass in our AMBI-Aqua range.
Which as well as oversized, the AMBI-Aqua glass is a high performing glass that reflects 82% of the sun’s heat, reducing the internal temperature of a conservatory, particularly with a south facing aspect, by up to 9°C during the hottest summer months.
It has a minimum U-Value of 1.2 and also provides greater glare reduction, thanks to its visually stunning aqua tint.
The Homeowners have reportedly been very pleased with their new oversized roof, getting great benefits from the Ambi-Max Glass.
