New British made rooflight expected to 'steel' the show
Tuscan Foundry Products one of the leading suppliers of conservation style rooflights is exhibiting their new British made rooflight 'Lumen' at stand number 1241 at this year's National Homebuilding and Renovating Show (2nd - 5th March 2006, NEC Birmingham).
Manufactured to sit flush, this low profile rooflight meets all the standard requirements of a conservation rooflight suitable for a period property but is unique in its attention to detail. Everything from its fines lines of steel right down to its brass tag demonstrating its authenticity has been carefully crafted.
The Lumen rooflight has been especially made to replicate a traditional Victorian design whilst providing one of the highest specifications of glazing available today through incorporating Pilkington Activ - the world's first self-cleaning glass. Specialist non-reactive silicone has also been sourced to bed and front the argon gas filled units to resemble the traditional putty appearance found on an orginal Victorian rooflight. In addition, every rooflight is produced with an anthracite timber liner, hand-crafted by a British carpenter to provide the finishing touch on the inside.
Paul Trace, Managing Director of Tuscan Foundry Products explains the need for detail:
"Our engineers have designed and produced every detail beautifully, for example the winder mechanism is made from solid brass. I wanted to produce a rooflight that is British made, indicative of our craftsmanship and deserving of our heritage properties."
Each rooflight will be made according to the specification and will have optional features including remote control opening to allow flexibility. Where an excess of light is necessary, the Lumen rooflight has a seamless design which can be linked together with a minimum amount of visual framework. The Lumen is a unique rooflight of the highest quality and is ideal for installation in period properties that require a traditional skylight.
