INDUSTRYNEWS QUALITY STANDARDS BRING POSITIVE RESULTS »»THE QUALITY STANDARDS OF THE Ambience range from TuffX have once again inspired consumer investment. In one specific extension project the Ambi Neutral product option was selected due to its thermal properties as well as the aesthetic which heightened the overall finished look. With consumers continuing to invest to add value and year round living space, the Ambience range of thermally efficient, easy maintenance, solar controlled products is generating increased sales and referral business for the company’s customers. Large orangery style extensions still remain popular and as shown in one particular project, it was to be an integral part of the home that would be used as the kitchen. A number of aspects therefore needed careful consideration by the TuffX customer, including optimum use of light and varying temperature changes that would occur both internally and externally. For many customers the broad selection in the Ambience range greatly improves business opportunities as the end user can make informed decisions about the varying performances of the glass, which have all been developed to overcome restrictions caused by weather extremes.

Liniar’s Design & Development and Marketing teams are joining forces to tackle the Wolf Run, a 10km course featuring a series of man-made and natural obstacles, in order to raise funds for the Royal Derby Hospital’s Neonatal unit. Winter Wolfe Gaskin, grandson of Liniar’s Design & Development Director, Adrian ‘Reg’ Redshaw, sadly passed away just one day after his birth in October last year. Despite their heart-breaking loss Adrian’s daughter, Nicola, and her partner, Dean Gaskin, were full of praise for the incredible care and support they received from the hospital staff and have since raised more than £3,000 for their ‘Support The Baby Unit Fund’ appeal. The story touched the hearts of everyone at Liniar - so when Nikki Dunbar, Design & Marketing Co-ordinator, came across an event called the Winter Wolf Run, Adrian and his colleagues eagerly agreed to sign up to the spring challenge. A total of 14 Liniar staff will take part on Saturday, April 9th – just days before this year’s FIT Show in Telford.
