Clement Conservation Rooflights feature in TV programme!

July 12th, 2023

We were excited to see our conservation rooflights on a recent TV programme.

Derelict Rescue, which aired on HGTV in May, featured the conversion of a deconsecrated Methodist church near Leeds into a comfortable home.  A mezzanine floor was added to accommodate two bedrooms and bathrooms and rooflights from the standard range of Clement Conservation Rooflights were included to lighten up the space.

Our most popular steel window and door ranges

March 10th, 2022

At Clement, we pride ourselves on the manufacture of high-quality steel windows and steel doors, made to your bespoke requirements in our very own ISO 9001 approved factory.

While all of our ranges are developed to meet the ever-changing demands of clients and the wider industry, there are a few ranges that are particularly popular, boasting the elegant good looks, incredible versatility and modern performance requirements you can expect from Clement.

 

Most popular for replacement steel windows: EB24

EB24 is our most popular and versatile steel window product for both commercial and residential work.  Benefitting from exceptionally slim frames, our high specification EB24 steel window range is superior to your original metal windows.  It offers better thermal performance, security (PAS 24 is an option) and it is also very easy to maintain.  Clement specialise in manufacturing new steel windows and doors to match your originals, but with a far improved specification.

Although the EB24 range is our most sought after product for replacement work it can also be suitable for new build projects, as it achieves up to a B energy rating.

Improving the air quality of your home

July 19th, 2018

The level of pollutants and allergens in our homes is increasing, with a long list of factors contributing to the problem, including cooking and heating appliances, paints, solvents, carpets, furniture, cleaning products, electrical appliances, toiletries and pets.

It is commonly accepted that outdoor air pollution is harmful to human health and we know to avoid breathing in toxic car fumes or smoke emitted by industry. However, how many of us are aware that the air we breathe indoors has the potential to be just as harmful? According to the British Lung Foundation, in the UK, we spend about 90% of our time indoors. As modern homes are becoming more energy efficient and securely built, it is often these airtight environments which are increasingly a cause for concern as they trap the allergens and toxins inside.

Fresh air can boost energy levels, aid better sleep, brighten your mood and increase overall health and wellbeing, so what better way to let it in and help in the fight against indoor air pollution than installing a rooflight in your property?

The History of the Conservation Rooflight

December 12th, 2017

The rooflight has arguably been a feature of architecture since Roman times when an oculus was included in structures such as the Pantheon in Rome – from the Latin word for ‘eye’, an oculus is a circular opening in the centre of a dome and was included in building design as a means of bringing in sunlight and as well as keeping a building cool by letting rain in.
