Press Release: March 24, 2010

Kens Yard has gone several steps further and put a comprehensive range of VELUX products on its website at www.kensyard.co.uk in an automated purchasing sequence, which assigns the correct size of flashings options to any chosen window. This not only a time saver but also prevents the purchaser from making costly mistakes.

Kens Yard provides the facility that will choose the correct size of blinds for the window ordered all you have to do is select the type and colour highlighting any other relevant accessories you may wish to purchase. The same fail-safe system is also applied to other leading products like CABRIO Balcony system & INTEGRA electric windows.

Keith Riddle Managing Director of VELUX UK & Ireland said, We are pleased to be featured so comprehensively on the Kens Yard website. Its approach to selling quality branded products to the UK building supplies market is both interesting and innovative. Their approach matches the VELUX ethos and we pleased to be working together

VELUX roof windows (http://www.kensyard.co.uk/velux-roof-windows/) are among the most reliable on the market, made from toughened glass that makes them more durable than lesser brands. Not only are they a great design feature for bringing light and the sense of space into homes, VELUX windows are specially designed for energy efficient home insulation.

With energy saving at home becoming ever more important to consumers, VELUX Solar Hot Water systems (http://www.kensyard.co.uk/velux-roof-windows/solar-hot-water-systems) are becoming an increasing popular and practical solution for people wanting to know how to reduce electricity bills. On average a solar hot water system can provide a home with 70% of its hot water requirements. The VELUX solar collectors are sold to match the roof window range so they can be easily integrated on most roofs.

The VELUX team will be at grand designs live in London 2010, with a free consultation sessions with daylight & design experts. They will also be offering advice on how to reduce your carbon footprint and how to incorporate solar energy in your home.
