Here we explore some of the strengths of this high-performing product, which is bound to transform your house extension or orangery into a space you’ll want to spend time in.

Add Style to Your Orangery or House Extension

Ultrasky does not rely on multiple bars and instead draws most of its strength from its ridge. This means your lantern roof will benefit from an expansive glazed area designed to optimise light. Your orangery or house extension will feel light and spacious as a result, while also benefitting from an elegantly designed lantern roof that looks stunning from the inside and the outside.

Individualise Your Lantern Roof

Every home is different, so why settle for a lantern roof that looks like any other? You’ll be able to tailor the design of your Ultrasky to tie-in with the windows and doors of your new orangery or house extension by choosing from a range of colours. The internal area of your new room can be clad in anthracite grey, White uPVC or Satin black.

Acoustically and Thermally Optimised

A lantern roof needs to offer more than superb aesthetics if it is to add lasting value to house extension or orangery. It also needs to provide practical benefits that will make the room in question a comfortable place to spend time in. The high performing glazing in the Ultraroof will block out unwanted noise and lock in the heat where it’s needed.

A Cost-Efficient and Eco-Friendly Roof

Because the Ultraroof is so thermally efficient, it reduces reliance on internal heating systems to stay warm during winter and prevents too much light from penetrating in summer. This means your orangery or house extension will be the perfect temperature all year round and benefit from lower heating bills and a much-reduced carbon footprint.

By adding roof vents to your Ultrasky lantern roof, you’ll be able to control the internal climate of your house extension or orangery. Available in a manual format that’s spindle-operated, or an automatic design – which uses rain and temperature sensors to intelligently open or close – they’ll help prevent the build-up of moisture, which can lead to mould.
