Uskvale Conservatories has seized the opportunity to become the first installer in the UK to use Ultraframe’s pioneering new Framelock system as part of its show site. A rosewood Classic style conservatory, featuring unique Framelock technology, is one of three stunning Ultraframe conservatories displayed at Uskvale’s brand new show-site in Caerphilly, Cardiff.
Framelock is the only dedicated side frame connection system which, when joined to an Ultraframe roof guarantees the structural performance of the entire conservatory. The BBA accredited system consists of a series of aluminium pillars and rails that are fitted together using proven Clicklock jointing technology to form structural ‘frames’, into which uPVC windows and doors can be fitted.
Doug Eades, Managing Director of Uskvale Conservatories comments: “We have a show-site in Raglan featuring six Ultraframe conservatories which has been hugely successful. As a result we have been able to expand and have created a new show-site at Caerphilly featuring a further three stylish Ultraframe conservatories. We heard about Ultraframe’s new Framelock system and were very impressed by the benefits the system offers us and our customers. We believe Framelock gives us a real competitive advantage over other installation companies.”
To reinforce the exemplary structural performance of Framelock, owners of conservatories featuring the system will receive a BBA accredited ‘Certificate of Structural Assurance’. This will offer the homeowner peace of mind, help to demonstrate compliance with the very latest performance standards and give the installer an additional selling tool.
Doug continued: “The use of Clicklock technology will make installation on site quick and fitter friendly. Ultraframe specify and factory-fit the clips onto the Framelock rails and pillars which minimises the room for error on site and ensures consistent quality installations by our fitting teams.”
A further benefit for those choosing a conservatory featuring Framelock is that the windows and doors can be factory glazed and installed on site without the need to deglaze and rebead. Transporting fully glazed frames can protect the glass during shipment and by moving as much of the fabrication to the factory as possible, helps to ensure quality and reliability, further reducing the risk of on-site problems during construction.
Uskvale Conservatories is also a member of Ultraframe’s Guild Approved Ultra Installer scheme. Members of the Scheme have undergone independent inspections by the BBA which increases their credibility with homeowners. Benefits of the Scheme include immediate communication about ‘hot’ sales leads, monthly updates on consumer referrals through the Ultraframe call centre and website, as well as continuous and innovative marketing support to help installers promote themselves.
Members of the Ultra Installer Scheme can also offer homeowners the recently launched Certificate of Authenticity, which guarantees homeowners have received a genuine Ultraframe roof. The Certificate of Authenticity can also be passed on by the homeowners with the house deeds should they ever wish to sell their property.
Doug Eades concludes: “We feel that by offering Framelock with its ‘Certificate of Structural Assurance’, being a member of the Guild Approved Ultra Installer Scheme and offering the Certificate of Authenticity, we are providing homeowners with a number of additional services to guarantee peace of mind when selecting a conservatory at Uskvale.
Uskvale will be launching their new show site in May. For further information on Uskvale Conservatories call 01443 833000.
