Ultraframe Network Partner: Durham Design - Conservatory Installer County Durham

From little acorns do huge oaks grow – that could be the business mantra of Durham Design partners Jill and Kevin Chatt. Based in the North East as the name suggests, they have been enjoying all the benefits of our market-leading orangery systems, which has proved to be a noticeable hit throughout their customer base.

Interestingly, their biggest ever project – two lantern style Orangery roofs – came as a direct result of a lead from a consumer visiting Ultraframe’s web site and finding Durham Design, who have been long standing Ultraframe customers. The combination of a leading orangery system and professional installation proving to be a winning combo.

This stands testimony to the orangery we offer, which is a contemporary update on the traditional ‘must-have’ status symbol of the wealthy. Orangeries intelligently bring harmony between structure and glazing, allowing you to enjoy all the aspects of a conservatory with a heightened degree of grandeur and space.

Kevin and Jill were very pleased to be openly invited to participate in making the Ultraframe Orangery package even more complete – critiquing the elements and components through working on site with Ultraframe’s technical support engineers. This allowed them to achieve a bespoke offering across the board.

This direct and constructive feedback led to Ultraframe creating new tooling for the GRP ‘lead look a like’ flat roofing system. Essentially, Ultraframe supply the complete package above lintel height including insulated box gutter, breathable vapour barrier, slab insulation, posi-joists and cassette deck – and of course the glass lantern roof.

All that isn’t supplied is the lead flashing, plasterboard and quilt insulation (neither is the bricks, mortar or copings!). Everything is cut and prepped and pre-built at Ultraframe’s factory before delivery to site – the product comes too with a comprehensive installation guide, something fitters have come to expect from the leading roof provider.

Kevin and Jill summarised:

 “We appreciated Ultraframe partnering with us – other quality retailers should consider this package and give it a go, they won’t regret it”.

For an increased degree of versatility, and to ensure our orangery system is the perfect fit for any project, we offer a selection of distinct styles and colour options which stand in line with our usual market-leading standards. This means that they can be tailored to suit a wide range of property styles and sizes.

The three styles that offer include:

Contemporary Orangery

The contemporary orangery captures a beautifully modern design, which is inherent to its build and charm. This system is recognisable by its combination of bi-fold doors or sliding doors and full height windows, which allow in a generous amount of natural light for a living area that brings a noticeable sense of brightness and space.

Our high performance super-insulated columns allow this orangery design to remain warm and comfortable throughout the year, despite the fact that the windows and doors comprise a large glazing area. This combines with a perimeter ceiling that can be fitted up to 1.2m wide for a warm and comfortable addition to any home.

Classic Orangery

Classic orangeries feature solid brick pillars, a high performance glass roof and a wide array of traditional finishing touches for you to enjoy. This includes a curved Cornice that adds a beautiful sense of style and shape throughout the build.  Quick to install and high performance throughout, this orangery system is a fantastic choice.

Due to its timeless aesthetic, the classic orangery style is easily tailored to suit a wide range of properties, including modern, heritage, traditional, period or new build. They are also available in a comprehensive selection of bespoke colour options that enable you to bring a personal charm to this new addition to your home.

Lantern Orangery

Offering the forefront of orangery design, the lantern orangery features an intelligently designed roof lantern, enabling natural light to flood into the home. This is expertly integrated into a solid flat roof to achieve an orangery build that feels more like an extension, achieving a robust and striking addition to any home.

This cutting-edge design also offers a heightened degree of customisation, enabling you to locate multiple roof lanterns across the solid flat roof as you wish. Available in aluminium or uPVC, this orangery can be finished in ‘White’, ‘Grey’ or ‘Black’. It’s never been easier to bring a stunning new addition to your home.
