Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions: With the new Lantern added to its portfolio, Lumina is on course to achieve year on year growth of at least 15% this year. “ This is our sixth year in business and our sustained growth during that time is in no small part down to our partnership with Atlas and the products they make,” adds Justin Stone, managing director at Lumina Design

SWISSPACER: We offer a high-end solution with specially coated glass in our rooflights, so it’s important the movement of the blind inside the glazing does not compromise the finish. SWISSPACER’s 32mm spacer bar gives us plenty of room inside the sealed unit” Ian Woolley, Sales Director at HiTECH, explains.

Letter to the editor: Are you glazing your heritage units correctly?

Dear Ian

As someone with over 30 years of experience manufacturing sealed units, I can't think of another time where the heritage sector has been so firmly in the industry spotlight. Whether it's best practice, compliance or consolidation, there are a multitude of issues which have ultimately got the industry talking.

I fear though, we could be facing another potential issue, with a number of reported unit failures recently due to glazing methods not being followed. In this case, it involves compatibility issues between the paint used and the glazing method chosen, as well as painting heritage units before the putty compound has cured effectively. Either way, this is undoubtedly one of the biggest causes of unit failure, yet it is so easily avoidable. ...more

Yours sincerely,
Andy Cocker, Director, Slenderline Glass (part of the EJ Cocker Group)
