Ultraframe’s new generation of glazing, Conservaglass, has experienced a healthy growth in sales following a successful product revamp just over a year ago.
Sales of Ultraframe’s glass roofs have soared since 2006 and this reflects the increase in demand from consumers for enhanced glazing technology, especially from second or third time conservatory purchasers.
Mark Hanson, Marketing Manager at Ultraframe commented: “The modern consumer is far more conscious of the need for energy efficient products in and around their homes and are demanding low maintenance products in conjunction with their busy lifestyles. Conservaglass meets this demand and it is not only self cleaning but is also aesthetically stunning, providing an excellent glazing solution.”
One Package: Ultraframe users specifying Conservaglass benefit from sourcing the roof and glazing from one company. Ordering, specifying, pricing and the delivery process are all managed by Ultraframe or one of their fabricator partners, providing an unrivalled efficient service for installers and dramatically reducing the risk of error. However, if any queries should arise, then the customer only needs to make a single call. Further evidence of Ultraframe’s ‘one-stop-shop’ philosophy is the availability at the point of ordering of MS Polymer sealant – critical for the successful installation of self-cleaning glass.
Performance Excellence: An amazing ‘U’ value of just 1.1, coupled with a very low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, ensures that around 60% of the heat from the sun is blocked from entering the conservatory but excellent light transmission is maintained to allow for a bright and airy interior.
Virtually Maintenance Free: Conservaglass is truly self-cleaning, utilising a transparent coating bonded into the external surface (during production) of the glass to harness the power of ultra violet rays and rain to break down dirt and grime and wash it away.
Reduced Lead-time: Conservaglass boasts an impressive lead-time of just five to seven days, providing a highly competitive level of service.
Competitive Price: Several changes were implemented in the production and distribution process, reducing the overall manufacturing cost of Conservaglass. The saving has been passed onto Ultraframe’s customers, resulting in a competitively priced high-performance glazing option.
Convenient Distribution: In addition to reducing lead times, changes to logistics now allows installers the option of having Conservaglass delivered direct to site, saving time and money.
Mark Hanson Concluded: “Conservaglass is a high specification glazing product boasting amazing properties which make it extremely appealing to consumers. Fine-tuning in certain areas has allowed us to further enhance the product offering and we are confident that Conservaglass, when glazed into the technically superior Classic roof, is now the most superior glazing option on the market today.”
