August 2016 Cool Wall


It’s amazing that the August Cool Wall is now live. The time has really flown by, and there is now just four monthly Cool Wall competitions left, including this one, before the end-of-year Wall of Winners competition. This is where the industry will vote to decide on the coolest installation of the year from each of the 11 monthly Cool Wall winners.

But before we get there, we must first find and vote for an August winner. The previous month of July saw the now expected very high standard of projects, by some excellent fenestration companies. Absolute Glazing came out on top in July, which gave them a hat-trick of wins this year. To see their winning project visit the home page of this site or go to the Cool Wall Dashboard to see that, and all the other monthly winners so far.

This is the eighth monthly Cool Wall of 11 to be held this year, with each monthly winner going on to our Wall of Winners competition to be held in December. The winners of that will receive a well deserved trophy and will be treated to a day and evening of hospitality and entertainment at the yearly NFA Winner’s event. So it really is worth taking part.

There are no upload limits, send us as many as you wish. You don’t have to be registered and it is 100% free to take part. Please allow us some time to upload your project to the Cool Wall as this is done manually to avoid spam in our system.

Once installations are uploaded, a poll will appear on this page where people can vote for the installation they believe to be the coolest. The project with the most votes at the end of the month wins!

Good luck!
