Trend for large glazed extensions increases demand for rooflights

Following the trend for large, glazed extension projects in the domestic market, Jack Aluminium has experienced record sales on its TRL90 rooflight, with four times more profile sold in July than in any other month on record.

“As we returned to supplying fabricators after lockdown, we knew that there would be increased demand for product,” explains Jeff Pearson, Sales and Marketing Director at Jack Aluminium. “But this is unprecedented for us. Sales on rooflights increased fourfold in July, the biggest monthly sales ever for the TRL90 profile.

“It proves just how strong the market is for glazed extensions with flat rooflights.

“TRL90 was launched back in 2017 and was our first ‘dual-purpose’ product that was suitable for the residential market as well as commercial jobs. From talking to fabricator customers, we had a good understanding of what they needed to offer installers who were taking on these large, glazed extension projects – speedy delivery and fast & easy fitting on site.

“They also wanted a rooflight that looked the part for modern, open-plan living spaces and offered great performances values. TRL90 delivers on all parts – a flush finish, architectural aesthetics and a frame U-Value of just 1.0 W/m2K.

“TRL90 has shown us what home improvement installers are looking for in a domestic aluminium glazing system, and that’s given us plenty of food for thought for the future of the Jack Aluminium product range.”
