Feature JulAs the TuffX team enjoys one of its most successful sales periods to date with record achievements that have increased the company’s customer base by 26% during the first five months of 2013, management team are driven to develop more options for customers.
After a record weekly sales intake in May this year, TuffX has seen an overall increase in orders of 18% by comparison to the first half of 2012. This has been attributed to a variety of reasons including choice, professionalism, quality and reliability which all combine to give customers the highest standards in relation to products and service support.
Whilst the conservatory sector as a whole has faced incredibly difficult times, TuffX has been at the forefront of high performance, solar control, self-cleaning roof glass design ensuring that customers can offer unique products that will improve profit margins.
As conservatory design has developed over the years, product innovation has become a priority to the TuffX team to ensure customers have the best choice of coloured, high performance, self-cleaning roof glass for year round use.
The advantages of the entire Ambience portfolio including triple-glazed options have been repeatedly endorsed by customers due to the choices of colour available and the high thermal performance benefits achieved.
The Ambi-Aqua tint offers the best performance roof glass at 78% reflection when it comes to heat reflection and solar control than any other on the market. With positioning having a huge effect on temperature control and year round use, tinted roof glass options such as blue, neutral and clear should be remembered as they may better suit the location and homeowners’ need.
Graham Price, Managing Director comments, “The Ambience range from TuffX has been developed to provide maximum choice in relation to glare, reflection, light transmission and privacy. Products such as the revolutionary Ambi-Aqua and Ambi-Blue glasses have proved extremely popular with both installers and specifiers as the product guarantees, aesthetics and performance values are unmatched in the industry today.”
The niche glass roofing option Ambi-Max, launched by TuffX initially to eliminate common problems associated with muntin bar leaks has also proved a very popular product from the range. For many customers it has become the product of choice for both domestic and commercial applications due to the added aesthetic finish it provides. Additionally it substantially reduces call back and has created new opportunities with more scope in relation to impressive roofing designs.
Senior management believe that the range has broadened scope for those customers looking to offer more options in a very aggressive industry which requires constant evaluation and revitalization.
Understanding customers’ tight schedules remains a priority for the TuffX team, with fast turnaround times offered by the flexible national fleet, which delivers all products either direct to site or factory.

All products are produced in-house at the company’s modern manufacturing facility in Knowsley, Cheshire, which was specifically designed to accommodate the production of all glass types from the range. There are few companies today that can manufacture supersized units for example, within such a fast turnaround and which all adhere to the necessary industry standards.

Thanks to machinery investments, TuffX can produce the range which also includes Ambi-Bronze and Ambi-Neurtal within 5 – 7 working days.

Graham Price, Managing Director comments, “TuffX as a company has adapted and grown considerably over the years to ensure that our customers needs are met and exceeded. With simple solutions and one of the broadest colour ranges on the UK market we feel installers can reap many benefits from this regarding lead generation and improved sales figures.”

Working alongside leading glass companies, innovation does not stop there for the TuffX team. The company is excited to announce that “Pilkington Activ Blue sunshade”, a new solar controlled, self-cleaning product will be added to the range shortly. It is expected that this high performance product is likely to supersede most other products currently available on the market.

Graham Price, concludes, “As a company we are determined to continue to place our focus on advancement, with a desire to provide only the highest standards of glass specification for the conservatory industry.”
