New contemporary living space

Vale Glazing recently used the Classic conservatory systems from Ultraframe to create a contemporary conservatory extension in south Wales.

The customer lives in a 195’s detached house which had a gable style conservatory that was in need of updating. The brief to Justin Maunder and the team at Vale Glazing was to use the existing footprint and create a new, energy efficient, contemporary living space which was open plan to the rest of the home.

The new contemporary living space, created using the Classic system from Ultraframe, features an insulated internal pelmet that enhances the energy efficiency to ensure the warm, cosy room can be enjoyed all year round.

From the outside, the old dwarf wall and French doors made way for a huge picture window and contemporary sliding doors. Rendered in K-Rend with windows, doors and Classic Roof, all finished in anthracite grey, and the result is a stunning, warm, modern new room, the company said.

“We choose Ultraframe obviously because of the quality of the products,” Justin said. “The clients gave me free reign with the design, and they are over the moon with the finished result.”

Developed over the last 38 years, Classic was the first conservatory roof system to be granted BBA approval over 25 years ago and still carries the accreditation today.

The system features numerous patented features such as:

trickle ventilation in the ridge to carry stale, moist air to the roof apex for venting outside

chambered top caps which improve thermal performance, reduce the risk of condensation and resist bowing or twisting

multi chamber ‘wine glass’ shape aluminium glazing bars offers more torsional rigidity and solid, secure jack rafter connections

patented twinbolts to secure every bar in place

patented adjustable Speedlock optimises glazing bar compression and makes the roof simple to fit
