Watch the ultraframe video
This 7 minute video illustrates the features and benefits of installing an Ultraframe conservatory roof. It includes footage of severe wind testing carried out at an independent testing facility. Watch an Ultraframe roof withstand storm force winds in excess of 130mph whilst others were literally 'blown away'.
A conservatory roof is a complicated engineering structure that must be capable of withstanding the harshest elements that the British weather can throw at it. If you have watched the Ultraframe Test Report video above you can see that the Ultraframe roof system will stand up to winds in excess of 130 miles an hour. In fact prior to manufacture all our roofs are structurally checked to ensure they meet stringent wind and snow loadings based on the height above sea level at the installation address.
As part of the structural stability testing tie bars may be deemed necessary for your roof style and if so, will be supplied and must be fitted to ensure that there is no possibility of the eaves beams spreading due to the downward force of snow loading on the roof. Ultraframe also offer a tie bar replacement kit which can eliminate the need for traditional tie bars on some styles of conservatory - please ask for details.
The reassurance of a quality brand
Our PREMIER range of self assembly conservatories feature Ultraframe Conservatory roofs because they are engineered for the extremes of the UK climate and are approved by the British Board of Agrement(BBA)to last at least 25 years. Ultraframe roofs are the only system to have passed the USA's BOCA system, the toughest testing regime in the world.
Certificate of authenticity
Your new Ultraframe conservatory will be supplied with a certificate that can be passed onto future owners of the property to confirm that the conservatory does feature a genuine Ultraframe roof.
Benefits of an Ultraframe Classic Roof
Ultraframe have been designing conservatory roof systems for over 25 years and with over 1 million installations throughout the world their roof is the undisputed market leader. The Classic roof system benefits from some exclusive features such as:
Free Eavesflow ventilation
Ultraframe conservatory roofs feature patented eaves trickle ventilation as standard with ridge ventilation as an option. For additional ventilation to the roof space of your conservatory consider specifying manual, electric or rain sensor roof vents. This valuable additional ventilation is especially recommended if your conservatory is south facing where long hours of constant sunlight in the summer months will lead to heat build up in the roof space.
Save money and installation time compared to traditional lead flashing. Conservaflash is a replacement pvc flashing system that is easier and faster to fit than lead and the product does not pose any threat to the enviroment. The product includes and extruded soaker that is pre-clipped to the roof starter bar, stepped flashings to suit 5 different roof pitches, a saddle flashing that fits over the ridge and a universal horizontal flashing for lean to conservatories. Installation is easy - simply chase out the host wall with a grinding wheel and fit the pre-formed apron flashing and silicone for a perfect finish.

Livin Room Orangery
The Classic roof system also offers the opportunity to upgrade to a new cross-over range of glass room extensions called Livin Room. This new orangery style concept is proving very popular with customers wanting additional living space that is more like a home extension than a traditional conservatory.
Add a touch of elegance to your Ultraframe conservatory with an upgrade to Cornice.
Cornice is designed to upgrade the standard Classic roof with a bespoke powder coated aluminium shroud that encases the standard Marley Classic guttering system and completely covers the roof glazing bar ends to provide a smooth elegant eaves detail. It can be fitted to the standard or super duty eaves beam and can even be retro fitted to existing Ultraframe Classic conservatory roofs.
Cornice is supplied made to measure and with full installation instructions.
Super Duty Eaves Beam Option
The Super Duty Eaves provides additional structural support for the roof on most conservatories where bifolding doors are specified. These wider openings were previously only possible using steel portal frames but depending on the style of conservatory and the width of the bifolding door an upgrade to the Super Duty Eaves Beam will ensure adequate support for the roof above the door aperture.
As you can see here the SD eaves beam is 38mm taller and 25mm wider than the standard eaves beam but uses the same cladding and cappings. The upgrade will be required on all elevations of the conservatory and not just where the bifold door is specified.
Made to order and ready to fit
Your conservatory roof will arrive in kit form with all components cut and drilled ready to assemble. The roof packs are clearly labelled and all major parts are labelled and identified from the roof plan to ensure they are fitted in their correct locations.
Comprehensive installation guide and roof plan provided
A comprehensive step-by-step installation guide is also provided with the roof but if you would like to study the installation process prior to ordering your conservatory you can download a copy of the current Ultraframe Classic Roof Installation Guide.
