System: Classic Conservatory
Ultraframe customer, Conservatories By Design UK, recently completed the installation of a unique and impressive conservatory. The Plymouth based company have established themselves as specialist installers of unusual conservatories, and are considered a leading installer in the South West area. This striking Ultraframe Classic lean-to conservatory sits to the rear of a detached home located in the prestigious Dartmoor National Park.
The unique feature of the installation is that the conservatory meets a ‘floating’ balcony. Several companies suggested installing a lower pitch roof, which sat underneath the balcony. However, this would have been impractical to install and impossible for the homeowners to clean and maintain. With the free help of Ultraframe’s technical support team, the solution of using a box gutter was devised and implemented.

The Right Products and Support for the Project
As first time installers of Ultraframe’s products, the Clitheroe-based market leaders provided two technical engineers to assist Conservatories By Design UK install this unusual structure. Chris Treeby, company Director, was delighted with the help received: “We normally undertake challenges alone but Ultraframe provided us with an excellent service for this extra-complex installation. They helped to design the wide box gutter and the support system for the glass, carried out the site survey and prepared the drawings for the design of the rake frames to fit perfectly under the roof for the frame manufacturers.”
The 5m x 3.8m conservatory was glazed with Conservaglass subtle blue glass and features Ultraframe’s chambered top caps. Chris Treeby added: “We are extremely pleased with the final result, the Ultraframe Classic system was perfect for this installation as the quality and configurability of the product is simply excellent. The chambered top caps are becoming extremely popular with homeowners as they maximize thermal efficiency, making the conservatory a versatile room, which can be used all year round. The Ultraframe Classic roof system is considered the industry’s most successful conservatory roof and it has been tried, tested and trusted by quality installation companies for over 16 years.”
Chris Treeby concluded: “We switched over to using the Ultraframe system quite recently, but now we wish we had done it years ago. Ultraframe are priced competitively, and we feel the products and service are outstanding. They have provided us with support whenever we asked and, in addition, the Ultraframe brand, their wide range of products and the 20 year heritage all act as unique selling points to assist us in retail sales to the homeowner.” The Ultraframe Classic roof system is considered the industry’s most successful conservatory roof and it has been tried, tested and trusted by quality installation companies for nearly 25 years.
The Ultraframe Classic Roof and Conservaglass™: A Perfect Combination
Why was the Ultraframe Classic Conservatory Roofing system perfect for this project? Because it could be shaped to conform to any roofing configuration, it provided the flexibility needed to cope with the demands posed by the installation. A range of design options were available too, which meant the visual aspect of designing the conservatory could be tailored to suit the homeowners’ requirements.
It’s industry-leading design notwithstanding, the Ultraframe Classic Conservatory Roofing system was the perfect choice from a safety perspective. Its structural integrity was proven using an innovative design software program called U-Design, which was able to factor in the effect of local weather conditions.
Conservaglass worked in close conjunction with the Ultraframe Classic Conservatory Roofing system to deliver superior performance throughout the design. This high-performing double glazing is especially strengthened and designed to block out solar rays during summer, while locking in the heat during winter.
The conservatory featured in this project became a space that could be used all year round, thanks in part to the inclusion of Conservaglass. And because this type of glazing is also self-cleaning – using a clever opaque bonding in conjunction with ultra violet rays to remove dirt – the structure requires minimal upkeep.
