Sheerline introduces S2 roof system
After three years of product development, Sheerline has launched the S2 conservatory roof system.
Based on the K2 roof, this newly evolved system will be initially available exclusively through Prefix Systems and SupaLite.
Featuring a choice of multi-chambered PVC-U or aluminium top caps, along with a refined aluminium gutter shroud and easy to install internal pelmet system, S2 has been designed to cover a broad range of applications from large orangeries to more modest, replacement lean-to’s.
Designed around a strong ‘box’ eaves beam, S2 can incorporate wide panoramic doors into a conservatory space and can accommodate pitches from a low 2.5˚ to a steep 37.5˚.
Modern ‘squared’ cappings and aesthetics are carried across the entire S2 roof and all trims. Creating a modern contemporary looking system, customers have the option to add finials and crestings for a more traditional finish.
Garnalex’s CEO, Roger Hartshorn, said: “An aluminium conservatory roof was a natural product for Garnalex to introduce, especially working with industry leading partners.
“After the success of our S1 roof lantern, developing a complete conservatory roof system to meet changing market needs was the next natural step. It also gives customers looking for a conservatory roof another choice in a market that is becoming increasingly stagnant and devoid of innovation.
“We knew when we committed to bringing a new roof system to market, we needed the right partners – experts in their field – to make it a success, ensuring we built in practical experience and innovation into every component.
“It’s part of the foundations we’ve built the success of the core Sheerline range on, so partnering with Prefix was a natural choice.’
Chris Cooke, Prefix director, added: “We really like the development the team at Sheerline have engineered into the S2 roof system. The glazed extension market is evolving, and this product will fit perfectly in Prefix’s glazed roof offering.”
Sheerline will also be making its SheerVent intelligent roof vent available for S2. Launching first for the S1 roof lantern it features a unique, flush low-line appearance as well as full automation options.
SupaLite’s sales director Wes Clarkson, commented: “S2 was the obvious choice when we were looking for a fully glazed roof to sell alongside our existing range of tiled solutions, with better thermal performance and a more up-to-date appearance than the other systems we’d looked at.
“Being able to offer high end ‘orangeries’ alongside complicated T-shapes and simple lean-to’s – all from one system will enable us to keep manufacturing to the exceptional quality that our customers expect.”
