Conservaglass, launched in 2002 by Ultraframe, was the first high performance glazing product designed specifically for the requirements of conservatories in the UK climate.
Ultraframe has recently launched some new variants of sealed units to sit alongside the highly successful Conservaglass range, providing Ultraframe users with a broad spectrum of glass options to offer to their customers. Now one call gets it all. Ordering a roof and glass from one source, ensures there are no mis-measures or time wasted waiting for glass sizes or trying to work out sizes on difficult shapes. All Conservaglass is UK manufactured by Pilkington, meaning that lead times are just 5-7 days, and for total convenience can be delivered to Ultraframe customer’s premises, or direct to site on small vans that can easily navigate domestic housing estates. All units are toughened; gas filled and come with a silver spacer as standard, however, to offer total choice to end users bronze, gold & white are also available.
The newly launched Anti-Sun and Clear sealed units are available in a choice of blue, grey or standard clear sealed units with the added options of soft coat low ‘e’ (1.2) or K glass (1.5) on the inner leaf, meaning that installation companies can now offer a variety of glazing performance characteristics at value price points - in addition to the existing Conservaglass range.
Mark Hanson, Marketing Manager at Ultraframe and Chairman of the Conservatory Association, commented: “Ultraframe endeavour to provide our customers with not only the best products, but also the greatest choice and levels of service. The extension of our glazing range highlights this and we believe that the new Anti-Sun and Clear sealed units are a great addition to our glazing offering. Whilst they offer great value for money, they still feature properties with great selling points that will appeal to homeowners during some of the toughest times our industry has seen for some time, allowing installers to continue to up sell and get greater value from each sale.”
Not only has Ultraframe introduced these new value sealed unit options, but the list price of the existing Conservaglass range has also been reduced, further helping retail installers at a time when every pound must be spent carefully.
