A contemporary warm solution

This new version of WarmRoof from Prefix Systems has been developed using a steel formed panel to provide the aesthetics of a zinc roof.

The existing structural chassis of the Prefix WarmRoof is used with the steel roof, which boasts eight different finishes, inspired by urban living and nature, with capabilities of roofing pitches down to 5º and carries BBA certification, with a life expectancy in excess of 40 years.

“The innovative secret fix standing seam roof material delivers excellent aesthetics, performance and eco-credentials and is being increasingly specified on both new build residential and refurbishment projects,” the company said in a release.

One of the most prominent WarmRoof installations was carried out by longstanding customer, Artisan Conservatories and Windows in North Wales.

In this case study, the lean-to was designed to replicate the pitch of the existing stone cottage with a grey WarmRoof incorporating two Velux rooflights, while the windows, doors and guttering were specified in golden oak. The raked frame has also allowed for additional light and the vaulted ceiling has really helped create a true sense of space.

Ian Gibson, managing director of Artisan, said: “This new WarmRoof development has strong credentials and we already know that it is by far the best solid roof in the market. Having Prefix as a business partner allows us to tap into a number of unique and exciting products, all backed by their considerable customer support.”
