Winning Ways for Korniche

Posted on: November 7th, 2019


At the glittering inaugural Conservatory & Orangery Awards on October 30th the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern picked up yet another independently judged award  –  Best Rooflight and Lantern System and even though not launched yet achieved a finalist position in the Technical Innovation category for the Korniche Bi-folding doors composite clip-in bead system which when launched in 2020 will be a huge benefit to installers.

  • The C&O Awards are a response to the continued growth in consumer demand for additional living space and the high-quality products now available from our industry.

Judges’ Comment: “We couldn’t fault this product in any way. It ticks all of the boxes!”

Made for Trade identified the demand for a purpose-built roof lantern for flat roof extensions which inspired the company to develop the Korniche – a product that offers the consumer a strong yet beautifully proportioned glazing solution whilst delivering a product for builders, installers and stockists that is both highly profitable whilst being fast and easy to install on-site.

Having achieved the Professional Builder Award for Innovation earlier in the year. This award cements the Korniche Roof Lantern as best in class – applauded by those who have installed the product for its simplicity, strength and engineering and now recognized by an impartial panel of industry experts

The Korniche Lantern continues to be well received by the consumer – Made for Trade ensures the brand is highly positioned within the industry and provides excellent value in marketing support. MFT also goes to great length and expense to build trade partner demand for the Korniche brand by exhibiting at Homebuilding & Renovating Shows throughout the year, the products also profiled through BBC renovating programmes and showcased by presenters on social media channels!

With such a buzz around Korniche Aluminium Systems now is the time to become a Korniche Trade Partner and installer – without doubt the best value aluminium products in the market today.

korniche bi-folds

Brand New for 2019 Made for Trade bring you an all new aluminium bi-folding door system as the second product under the Korniche systems brand. Built from the same clean sheet design philosophy as the class leading aluminium roof lantern, the Korniche door system is loaded with fresh engineering innovations to really set it apart in this crowded category.

These innovations have been designed to deliver the same FASTER, STRONGER, WARMER and SLIMMER advantages which provide tangible benefits for every link in the forward supply chain.


FASTER – means less time on site instantly reducing project costs, faster is also ease of fit as well as outright speed. Easy installation is becoming increasingly important as the skills pool becomes shallower, and a simple installation process opens supply opportunities for multiple trades.

STRONGER – means exceptional resistance to loads, like weather, in-service loads and resisting unwanted visitors. A strong product will last the test of time and require minimal adjustment over its life.

WARMER – means high thermal efficiency and class leading sealing technology minimising heat transfer from outside to inside and vice versa.

SLIMMER – means low sight-lines on the profile as well as a reduction in visible parts that make up those sight-lines, couple this with innovative Korniche hardware gives a clean uncluttered aesthetic that suits every home.
