Sheerline Take Home Industry Award for the Second Time

Sheerline took centre stage at a recent industry awards event to honour the best-in-class installers and products, by taking away the winning trophy for ‘Best Technical Innovation’ for a second time. 

The Sheerline S1 Roof Lantern, an innovative, secure, and thermally efficient roof lantern fought off fierce competition to win the award, an accolade that coincided with the anniversary of Garnalex, four years ago. The GGP Installer Awards was held at the characterful Albert Hall, a Grade II listed Wesleyan chapel in Manchester and was hosted by TV Presenter, Jenny Powell.

The Sheerline S1 Roof Lantern carries a wealth of unique design characteristics and features ultra-low-line aesthetics for rafter and hip top caps to sit close to the glazing level of the exterior, creating an overall sleek and modern look. The corner and rafter end caps run perfectly in line with the perimeter of the lantern, providing no unsightly angles protruding out and spoiling the perfect sightlines of this exceptionally beautiful aluminium lantern.

“Competition for the ‘Best Technical Innovation’ category was intense,” comments David Wigley, Head of Marketing for Sheerline. “So, coming first to take away this year’s Installer Award is a fantastic honour for the effort being made across the business ensuring our products stay at the cutting edge of innovation.”

This is the second time Sheerline products have been recognised for an award at the event. In 2020, the Sheerline Classic window system won in the same category. David added, “We were aware that the panel of industry judges would be looking for products which can differentiate themselves.

“Aside from being easy and fast to fit, our roof lantern also features Thermlock®, our unique thermal break system designed to aid energy efficiency, as well as a unique glass closure system designed to seal in glass units, making it one of the most secure roof lanterns on the market.” David concludes.  

Roger Hartshorn, CEO for Garnalex Limited, owner of the Sheerline brand, commented, “We have worked hard creating our products from scratch to ensure we exceed installer, fabricator, and homeowner’s expectations. Streamlined processes, creative design, and a strong understanding of our market, have helped us to stand out from the crowd. Winning this award for the Sheerline S1 roof lantern proves we are on the right path to accomplishing this.”
