Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions has been named as a finalist in not one, but two categories at the forthcoming G19 awards.

The glazing industry’s prestigious and longest-standing awards event, the G Awards attract hundreds of entries from businesses throughout the industry, and this year Atlas is up for two awards – ‘New Product of the Year’ and ‘Promotional Campaign of the Year’.

The nomination for ‘New Product of the Year’ recognises the major advances that Atlas made in glazed lantern design when it launched Lantern 2.0 in January this year. Developed by a team of technical experts, Lantern 2.0 is the slimmest, lightest, finest looking and most thermally efficient lantern that Atlas has ever created.

The fully integrated marketing campaign behind Lantern 2.0 helped to propel this premium product to phenomenal success in its first year.  Spreading the message that Atlas has set a new benchmark in glazed roofing, the campaign has been nominated for ‘Promotional Campaign of the Year’.

Commenting on the double-award nominations, Gareth Thomas, sales and marketing director at Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, said: “We put everything into creating this new generation roof lantern, which has really raised the bar, both in looks and performance. Lantern 2.0 is the market-leading lantern and the response from the industry since its launch earlier this year has been amazing.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be nominated for two very sought after awards and we’re proud to take our place alongside the other finalists. We know the standard of entries this year is very high and we’re looking forward to a fantastic night in London when the winners are revealed!”

Surrey-based Sherborne Ltd is an experienced Atlas installer and has fitted many Atlas Lantern 2.0 lanterns this year. Chris Long, managing director of Sherborne Ltd, added: “As a proud G16 Awards winner ourselves, we know that the awards are an important industry event. It comes as no surprise that Atlas has been nominated for two G awards – the new lantern looks magnificent and it’s exactly what homeowners want. It’s also incredibly quick and easy to fit, which is why installers love it. Atlas are very worthy award finalists and we wish them the very best of luck on the night.”

The G19 winners will be announced at the awards ceremony and gala dinner, which will be held at the London Hilton on 29 November.

The new Lantern 2.0 from Atlas features a fully aluminium, thermally broken ringbeam, which has been reduced in size by 55% to make it lighter, better looking and more thermally efficient than ever. The new lantern also incorporates a refined ridge topcap, which is 25% thinner than before, to achieve incredibly slim sightlines when viewed from both above and below. To give the lantern continued external elegance, the height of the ridge top cap has also been trimmed by nearly 50%.
