Ultraframe launches new flat roof system

Ultraframe has announced the launch of a new flat roof system that is fully compatible with the new hup! building system which made its debut at the FIT Show.

Ultraframe’s marketing director, Alex Hewitt, said: “Our new flat roof system makes ordering and fitting a flat roof so simple and offers a huge number of benefits vs building a flat roof in the traditional manner.

“For each roof there is one order with structural calculations, lanterns and skylights included. This not only makes ordering easy, but it also saves our customers the large expense associated with a structural engineer. Coupled with our new hup! building system, it really does offer a fantastic way to build highly energy efficient extensions and orangeries in a fraction of the time of a traditional build.”

The new Ultraframe flat roof at a glance:

  • One roof, one order with structural calculations, lanterns and skylights included.
  • Seven soffit and fascia designs including cornices.
  • BBA approved Ultrapanel technology.
  • Spans up to 5.6m without steels.
  • Supports rooflights up to 5.7m x 3m.
  • Thermal performance that exceeds Building Regulations – 0.12W/(m²K)
  • Fully insulated ring beam and kerb.
  • ‘Up to 50% faster’ to fit than traditional methods.
  • Time saving, patented Pitchlock fall system.
  • Delivered as a flat packed kit with easy-fit soffits and clip-fit panels

Alex continued: “As with all Ultraframe roof systems, the strength of our new flat roof is phenomenal, meaning it can span up to 5.6m without steels. This superior strength also means that extra large rooflights up to 5.7m x 3m can be supported. Rooflights of this size bring in an immense amount of natural light to the room below as well as adding an undeniable wow factor.”

According to Ultraframe, its new flat roof is 50% faster to fit than a traditional flat roof build and is easier t handle on-site, thanks to its flat packed nature and easy clip components. Finally, as with other roofs in the Ultraframe portfolio, the flat roof offers thermal performance of 0.12W/(m²K) that exceeds the upcoming enhanced Building Regulations.
