It takes the right blend of old and new to elegantly renovate an historic, feature filled building, using modern materials. For Merseyside’s toughened glass specialist TuffX, the biggest challenge on a recent project was enabling their contemporary walk on glass floor to complement the majesty of a stained glass window centrepiece.
Products from the Ambience roof range were the crowning glory on a triple roofed extension in Washington, Newcastle. The prestigious private home had been doubled in size to the rear with an extensive orangery, which required easy maintenance and optimum use of light.
The Ambi Sunshade blue glass from the company’s high performance range was the preferred choice due to the thermal control and self cleaning properties it provided the homeowners.
Homeowners are often looking for new ways to modernise their home and make it different from others and Tuff X Processed Glass have unique ways of doing this. They recently have given one homeowner’s house a contemporary twist by supplying a glass stair case for their home.
TuffX often receive glass requests for weird and wonderful creations, but there latest job was a first even for them. They was called by a client asking for some glass which will create a glass floor door leading to a wine cellar.
Specialist toughened safety glass manufacturer TuffX often grabs the headlines for supplying the glass on high profile commercial projects, but its expertise is equally often called on for domestic projects. This expertise was perfectly demonstrated in a recent project for a home in Chester.
An Essex based company that specialises in sunken gardens and striking glass pond designs, is incorporating a variety of toughened laminated glass products from the TuffX Processed Glass range into its instant pond portfolio. The company provides beautiful ornamental pools which can be dismantled and reassembled should homeowners decide to relocate and move home.
This month TuffX have supplied 25m2 of glass to a new build home in Coverack, Cornwall. The homeowners had specific plans for their new build and desired an external balcony surrounding the front of the upper level of the house.
