Barkers benefits from Howells’ expertise ..

Barkers family department store in Northallerton has expanded over the years and last year embarked on a planned specialist project – to replace the rooflights in all four atriums positioned in the centre of the store above the ladies’ fashion department.

Using its HG57 medium duty self-supporting glazing bar powder coated in RAL 7024 matt, Howells designed and manufactured four roof lights using 28mm double glazed units using toughened glass with motorised vents.

There were many challenges associated with this project, for Howells it was installing during an intense heatwave and for Barkers, it was minimising disruption to customers. The roof lights are vital to the store’s unique shopping experience, allowing natural light to flood the upper floor.
