How it Works
A highly insulated, lightweight, timber solution
Your Solid Roof is designed to be used for new sun room installations or as a roof replacement to existing conservatories, and features a U-value of 0.14.
This “warm roof” design was conceived through the use of a pod system (patent granted) finished off externally with lightweight tiles, of your choosing.
All structural and building regulations are met thanks to careful design and engineering. The roof has been extensively tested and certificates issued to ensure it complies and exceeds the current Building Regulation requirements for both structural and thermal performance.
Made from pre-built pods for maximum efficiency on-site:
A roof pod is a boarded one piece timber framework section, either shaped or rectangular, which forms a structural link between both the eaves and ridge.
These pods are factory pre-assembled using roofing grade timber (1) and have been specifically designed to replace existing glass or polycarbonate roofed conservatories. All pod joints are glued and screwed together before being boarded with 18mm OBS3 roofing sheets (2).
The one piece roof pods are then glued and screwed onto a continuous Glulam* ring beam (3) attached to the head of the window frames, which are finished with a 150mm fascia board (4) and an ‘ogee’ decorative gutter system (5). This specially produced and engineered beam provides incredible structural strength, long term durability and performance.
Pre Built Pods
A U value is a measure of heat loss. It is expressed in W/m2k, and shows the amount of heat lost in watts (W) per square metre of material (for example wall, roof, floor etc.) when the temperature (k) outside is at least one degree lower. The lower the u value, the better the insulation provided by the material.
