Infinity Goes Beyond

TuffX has announced the launch of what is claimed to be the UK’s most energy efficient rooflight, Infinity Ecolite, which has a high solar factor to minimise heat gain whilst still maintaining a high level of light transmission.

Typically, solar glass products include a glass tint that is applied to the outer pane of the unit to help manage heat transmission, yet this tint also reduces light transmission.  Whilst developing Infinity Ecolite, TuffX and its R&D partner created a new coating that provides great solar control but crucially, does away with the proportional loss of light.



Additionally, TuffX’ coating helps to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures during the summer months, absorbing and reflecting twice as much heat as standard glass whilst still allowing plenty of natural light into the property. The whole unit design also works to retain heat well in winter, thanks to its impressively low 1.0 U-value.


Building regulations

Infinity Ecolite was developed to help enable homeowners, installers and builders to achieve the new approved document O standard for mitigating overheating, which came into effect as part of the UK building regulations update in June this year.


 “With Infinity Ecolite, you no longer have to compromise between light and comfort. This really is a unique product that we are bringing to the rooflight market.”

Commercial director, TuffX


Lower energy bills

“Of all our Infinity products, we’re particularly proud of Infinity Ecolite,” continues TuffX’ Higgins. “At a time when homeowners are facing significant price hikes in energy costs this product can significantly contribute to lower energy bills and also the carbon footprint of the home.

Infinity Ecolite rooflights are available in both standard or bespoke sizes and can be delivered direct to site, nationwide.”

Picture: TuffX claims its Infinity Ecolite is the most energy efficient on the market – avoiding solar gain in the summer and retaining heat in the winter whilst maximising light transmission.
