Professional BuilderThe Charles Godfrey Memorial Award for Innovation is given every year to a product that has brought significant innovation to the building industry.

The Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern has been awarded this prestigious award for 2018.

Professional Builder Magazine Korniche Award for Innovation

Roger Bisby who tested the Korniche earlier in the year commented: “The first thing I saw was the packaging. Every builder knows the frustration of having items arrive on site with damage. It slows the job down and causes hassle for the manufacturer – and the customer. Often there is a knock-on effect because other trades are unable to get on. With the Korniche Roof Lantern, everything arrived in perfect condition. The next thing is the instruction booklet, which deserves an award on its own. A huge amount of thought and design has gone into this. Every stage is clearly shown with intelligent use of colours to show you the relevant components.

Then there is the engineering. It all fits perfectly, and, when I say fits, I mean no gaps or misalignment, and no need for packers, shims or sealant.

The whole installation process went like a dream and I said at the time that I couldn’t wait until I had the chance to fit another. It didn’t take long. Without the slightest rush, I fitted three on a roof in less than a morning and each one was perfect. More importantly, the customer was delighted”.

Made For Trade are delighted to have received this award, one that stands by the very values on which the Korniche was conceived – to deliver to builders and installers a product that makes life on site easier and more cost-effective, whilst providing a beautiful, architectural lantern look that is contemporary whilst holding on to traditional timber style fitting any home. FITTED IN MINUTES, GLAZED IN SECONDS, STRONGER than any other lantern on the market with WARMER construction and SLIMMER profiles.

Bradley Gaunt, Managing Director says “We have been entered for many fenestration awards over the last couple of years and from my point of view in this industry we often see these awards as the usual suspects congratulating one another on their endeavors, in many cases winning could easily be based on the strength of a PR budget?!. So I’m over the moon with this independent award and Roger’s comments as it puts the product, engineering and design centre stage and applauds the advantages these efforts deliver above its competitors. In 2019 Made for Trade continue the innovation delivered in the Korniche Lantern with a new product launch at the FITShow which we are all very excited about”

There is no greater proof that a product like Korniche has made a mark on the industry than seeing competitors scrambling to catch up, looking to pick up on one or two aspects of the design to try and differentiate their own products and claw back market share. However, the Korniche Aluminium Lantern has already achieved an affinity with both trade and homeowners which will be hard to overturn. No other lantern has the overall winning combinations the Korniche delivers. From quotation to delivery in as little as five working days for a totally bespoke product and fitting in under 30 mins on site – Korniche remains the obvious solution for trades looking for a lantern to grace their flat roof extension projects in 2019.

Korniche success at The Homebuilding & Renovating Show at ExCeL London

korniche at Homebuilding & Renovating London

It’s fair to say that taking the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern brand to ExCeL was a huge success and had an immensely positive impact on everyone who came along to see the Korniche stand. Our key aim for these shows is to inform and educate homeowners about the Korniche and help develop sales for our distributors, retailers, installers and building clients nationwide.

Although the Korniche is now well established and a firm favourite amongst builders and installers due to the exceptional speed and ease of on-site installation, this glass roof lantern is still a relative newcomer to the homeowner. Public feedback at the London Show for the Korniche was amazingly positive and given us confidence it will become a Lantern of choice for homeowners looking for flat roof extension project solutions. The quality, thermal properties, and strength of the Korniche Glass Roof Lantern made it a big hit. On price alone, the Korniche appeared to be the solution that delivered more for less when compared to other Glass Roof Lanterns available.

With total product transparency, The Korniche team laid bare the Lantern by demonstrating the full installation process in front of large crowds throughout the show allowing homeowners to see the speed and ease of fit and impress on them the quality of engineering and expertise behind the development of the Korniche.

Missed us at ExCeL? We have agreed to do it all again with Homebuilding & Renovating at Harrogate from the 2nd to the 4th of November. If you have a flat roof extension project in mind come along and see how the slim-line, thermally efficient Korniche is the perfect solution to bring more light into your home.
