New hybrid solid roof

Prefix Systems has launched its WarmRoof Hybrid solid roof, which was on its stand at this year’s FIT Show and received generous acclaim, according to the company, as an “exciting, high performance glazed option”.

WarmRoof Hybrid introduces a 44mm triple glazed panel, which is integrated seamlessly into the roof, offering a U-value of just 0.6. But beyond the performance characteristics, the design of the hybrid option brings in Opus hardwood cladding to the internal frame and slimline ridge section, for an aesthetically pleasing finish.

Bar centres are 750mm as standard offering 700mm of vision, with glass from eaves to slimline ridge for maximum light transmission, while the option of an internal pelmet offers an additional lighting option. The sizeable glass units bring considerably more light as an alternative to even the largest roof light, which are otherwise specified by other WarmRoof designs.

Chris Baron, co-director of Prefix Systems, said: “The launch of WarmRoof Hybrid has been eagerly anticipated by our customers, who have been involved in its development. Full length glazing from eaves to ridge, triple glazing and the adoption of Opus hardwood makes this an unrivalled option in the solid roof sector.

“Our thirst for product development continues as we look to further develop our WarmRoof platform, which is the most configurable roof of its type in the sector. It’s also backed up through our four sites for sales, service and support.”

The new Hybrid variant is also included in the latest 2017, 20-page WarmRoof Collection brochure.
