Bask In The Glow With TuffX

TuffX has launched its long-awaited electrically heated glass product, Glow. For bi-fold doors in the first instance, the glass offers homeowners a revolutionary new way to heat their homes.

“With traditional heaters and gas boilers being recognised as inefficient, there is an urgent need for effective and affordable alternatives,” explains Paul Higgins, from the company. “Glow offers a solution that is like underfloor heating in that it doesn’t require wall space but is also not prohibitively expensive.

“Utilising infrared technology, it is thermostat controlled like existing familiar heating systems. The product offers fabricators a completely new solution to a growing problem.

“We understand that with such revolutionary ideas, our fabricators and their installer customers need additional support. TuffX is offering full training on Glow’s features & benefits and correct installation methods to our approved trade partner fabricator customer base, which they can then disseminate to their installers.

Higgins adds: “The system comprises of a sealed unit that is layered with intelligent conductive coatings to emit radiant heat into the home. It can be utilised as a primary heating source with temperatures reaching 35-40°C and has the added benefit of eliminating condensation. There is no visible trace of a heating system inside. From a homeowner’s perspective, the glass will look the same as that found in any other bi-fold door.”
