SupaLite has reported a ‘huge jump’ in enquiries and orders for the ILite flat roof orangery system, along with the new S1 and S2 conservatory glass roofs.

In January 2023, SupaLite opened a new manufacturing plant, dedicated to the ILite flat roof orangery, Sheerline S1 roof lanterns and the S2 conservatory roof.

Q1 results in 2024 for the new plant have shown vast increases in output, with a record growth of 58% year on year.

Steve Hacking, managing director of SupaLite, said: “Our high-performance orangery roof system and revolutionary S1 and S2 Systems have been well received by both customers old and new. The record levels of interest show our customers have the confidence in our ability to manufacture four completely different products whilst maintaining our seven working day lead time.’’

SupaLite has also recently launched its new Double SkyVista, featuring a newly designed rear soaker to remove the need for typical lead soakers. This reportedly speeds up the installation of the SkyVista feature panels to less than 20 minutes, saving time on site when compared against other systems.

According to SupaLite, its roof system continues to maintain high levels of demand with installers looking for the high value contracts associated with the replacement roof market. It adds that with over 5 million conservatories in the UK, there is a huge attraction for homeowners wanting to improve rather than move, especially whilst mortgage interest rates remain high.

Both the SupaLite roof and the ILite are fully accredited for Building Regulations approval, achieving a U-value of 0.15 for England, and an optional upgrade to 0.12 for Scotland and 0.13 for parts of Wales.

SupaLite also introduced the option of ordering a Building Regulations certification when customers place a roof order. SupaLite’s administration team process the applications on behalf of their customers, making the process quicker and easier.

Having partnered with Hertfordshire Building Control (HBC), SupaLite can now offer certification for installations in England.

SupaLite has also announced a new roof tile that will be available in the coming months to run alongside its ExtraLight Shingle and Tapco slate.

Steve concluded: “With interest skyrocketing, our range of replacement conservatory roof systems can provide ambitious installers with a valuable route to market and good profit margins.”
