When The Sun Goes Down

Long summer nights are coming and for one homeowner in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, this posed the question – how best to enjoy the garden as the sun goes down?

Hampton Conservatories had the answer and called leading TuffX to help meet the plan for an eight-pane timber glazed conservatory with bi-fold doors and roof lantern.

Finished in brilliant white, the new room has made a gret addition to the house, matching grandeur that the large, detached property and gardens enjoy out on the coast.



Orangery and conservatory specialist Hampton Conservatories has been a TuffX customer for two years, after initially being impressed by TuffX’s reliable lead times.

Twenty-six ‘Ambience’ glass units were ordered to complete the roof lantern. These units used a combination of 4mm clear, low E toughened glass panes and 4mm self-cleaning clear toughened glass and thus keeping maintenance to a minimum for the owner.

Hampton Conservatories’ MD, Mervyn Montgomery says: “The customer was after an indoor-outdoor feel with lots of light, extending the property out into the generous garden to enjoy summer evenings. A roof lantern gives the room additional height and light and TuffX’s Ambience roof glass guarantees high performance in terms of temperature control, durability, maintenance and aesthetics.”


Word of mouth

The new room is already proving popular as Hampton Conservatories have received enquiries from the client’s friends, who have been able to see for themselves what a light, airy yet temperate addition to a home a conservatory can offer.
