Conservatory Outlet is offering a stylish new Verandah from Ultraframe to its dealers, as part of the company’s drive to push up standards in the conservatory sector, and promote excellence in new design.
Taking the idea that ‘conservatories bring the outside in’ one step further, the glass roof in Ultraframe’s Verandah conservatory extends beyond the walls to protect an outside seating area. The homeowner can therefore enjoy the benefits of being outdoors, while being protected from the worst of the elements. Furthermore, on a warm day in-line sliders or bi-folds can be pushed right back so that the family can enjoy a much bigger space.
Matthew Glover, Conservatory Outlet’s MD, was bowled over by the Verandah at last year’s Glassex, and immediately bought one for his own house. “When I walked on to Ultraframe's stand at Glassex last year I just knew I had to have a Veranda,” he said. “The existing foiled conservatory I had on my home looked tired and I had already changed my windows for cream PVC ones which looked stunning. It’s fair to say that my wife and family love the new Veranda, and the addition of the full width doors improves access to the garden and at the same time integrates it more into the home.”
Following the Verandah’s success on his own home, Matthew is now pushing the concept out to members of the Conservatory Outlet Network. “It is this sort of innovation that the industry has been crying out for,” Matthew said. “It has been my fear for a few years now that the conservatory industry is dying a death because of a lack of imagination.
“Many conservatory companies believe that if they build as many white boxes on to the back of houses as they can, then they will make the same kind of money as they did 10 years ago. Well, they are wrong. Not only are they flogging a dead horse, but the proliferation of poorly designed conservatories is putting off homeowners from investing in the idea.
“However, Ultraframe’s Verandah conservatory is an example of the imaginative design we need, and I know that the forward-thinking people in Conservatory Outlet’s network are just the guys to push this out to the market.”
Externally, the aluminium powder coated half round beam provides structural support to the over sailing glazing and glazing bars – but it also acts as an integral gutter. This beam/integral gutter then features stop end spigots that seal the gutter at one end and are then ‘spliced’ onto an oak post to support the open side of the Veranda conservatory. At the design stage, aluminium down pipes can be selected or the rain water can be directed down hanging chains.
Retailers have the option to specify and select either the standard Classic roof or opt for the recently introduced Classic Plus roof. Classic Plus comes complete with built-in tracks for the fitment of fabric panelled shading devices – these too are made by Ultraframe and are called Shades. Inside the Shades could be a soft fabric, while outside they would be manufactured from a hard-wearing and weatherproof fabric.
