Ultraframe’s innovative chambered top cappings have proved a big hit with installers of the company’s market leading Classic conservatory roofing system. The uPVC chambered top cappings offer ease of installation for installers whilst significantly improving the thermal performance of the roof and comfort levels for the homeowner.

Available in a choice of two new designs, dome and bevel; the chambered top cappings are sculpted for a pleasing appearance in either a rounded or a more geometric profile. Their uPVC multi-chambered extrusions trap air in expertly designed air pockets to enhance thermal efficiency. This innovative design prevents heat loss through leakage points, virtually eliminates cold bridging and condensation and lowers the overall ‘U’ value. The cappings demonstrate an 18% improvement over standard cappings and are 40% more thermally efficient than competitor systems.

Home County Conservatories Ltd, based in Chelmsford, has been particularly impressed with Ultraframe’s new chambered top cappings. Steve Mileham, Managing Director, at Home County explained: “Chambered top cappings have been a great addition to Ultraframe’s Classic roofs. They are much easier to install than the traditional cappings and like all Ultraframe products, are finished to a high standard so they are aesthetically pleasing to homeowners. In terms of raising the level of thermal performance, no other competitor product can compete.”

As well as making the roof more thermally efficient, the new chambered top cappings virtually eliminate warping and twisting, especially where foils are used, to increase the overall performance of the roof, practically eliminating costly call backs for installers.
