When a homeowner in Ruislip wanted to maximise daylight in a property with a flat-roofed ground-floor extension , TuffX ’ s Infinity fixed rooflight provided installers HomeWorks Windows with the obvious – and easy-to-fit – solution .
The 1000 x 25000mm standard stock clear glass Infinity fixed rooflight required much less space than a roof lantern , while ensuring the benefits of natural light flooded into the footprint of the building , giving the whole area a well lit , welcoming feel throughout of day .
TuffX ’ s Infinity flat fixed rooflights not only help increase the amount of natural daylight in indoor spaces , they also provide excellent thermal insulation . The aluminium frame features a thermal break , which creates an insulated barrier and minimises the transference of heat and cold , reducing condensation and further enhancing the rooflight ’ s energy efficiency .
All Infinity rooflight units come ready to fit ‘ straight
from the box ’ – quick and easy with no additional assembly required on site . And with standard sizes being delivered within three to seven working days nationwide , the rooflight is as quick to arrive as it is to install .
“ Available in five standard sizes , in our popular contemporary anthracite grey powder-coated aluminium frame , Infinity rooflights are easy to fit ,
low maintenance for homeowners and guaranteed for five years ,” said Graham Price , TuffX ’ s Managing Director .
“ We also offer solar and privacy glass options , double or triple glazed , and of course we make bespoke sizes too – all delivered directly to site , ready to drop straight in to place .”

When leading fabricator Stedek switched its manufacturing to the Aluplast system late last year , they turned to Window Ware for the full hardware support they needed to ensure a seamless transition and uninterrupted production , even in the face of soaring demand and supply challenges caused by the pandemic . Today , the midlands-based company not
only sources all the hardware for its Aluplast products from Window Ware , but also , more recently , for all of its Residence Collection offering too .
Andy Young , Stedek ’ s Operations Manager said : “ We ’ d been buying some products for our Residence Collection doors and windows from Window Ware since 2018 and we had always received exemplary service . Then in April this
year , when The Residence Collection officially appointed Window Ware as its approved Regal Hardware distribution partner , that , coupled with our own positive experiences and their industry-wide reputation for reliability , sealed the deal for us .”
This move couldn ’ t have come at a better time for Stedek , as Residence ’ s new hardware distribution partnership with Window Ware gave them and other Residence Collection fabricators exclusive early access to the new Regal Hardware Mark II handle five months before its general launch to market this autumn .
Andy added : “ We have built our reputation on providing Residence excellence and delivering flawless products to our customers . Being able to offer exceptional hardware like the enhanced Mark II handle in advance ensures we can continue to deliver the superior levels of quality we ’ re after .”
