Roof Options and Extras
Roofs Built to Last
All Ultraframe Roofs are approved by the Government sponsored test agency, the British Board of Agrement (BBA) to last at least 25 years. Imagine what weather imposes on your roof over an average of 25 years. It could include:
All Ultraframe roofs are designed in accordance with all relevant British Standards and Codes of Practice.
- BS5516 Parts 1 & 2: 2004 - Sloping glazing for buildings
- BS8118 Part 2: 1997 - Wind loads
- BS6399 Part 3: 1998 - Snow loads
- BS8118 Part 3: 1991 - Structural use of aluminium – design

Ultraframe roofs were the first in the industry to be approved by the BBA. Ultraframe are the only roof system manufacturer to be awarded ISO9000 for design, manufacture and supply.
The design of our roof system created industry standards when there were none and that passion for excellence continues today through an extensive and market leading product range.
Comfortable and Controllable Environment
The position of the conservatory in relation to its surroundings is a key factor in the creation of a comfortable conservatory interior, whatever the weather.
Good installation and heating will be required if the conservatory faces North, whilst additional ventilation and shading (e.g. shaded polycarbonate) for South facing conservatories is essential.
Ultraframe is the only conservatory roofing manufacturer to include ventilation as standard in each and every roof.
This is done to ensure that whether its raining or shining outdoors your conservatory has a comfortable interior temperature for you to enjoy all year round.
The Ultraframe patented ridge and eaves beam gives all year round ventilation, minimising the possibility of condensation forming. It has also been designed to provide the ultimate in security.
Safety and Security
When glass double glazed sealed units are required in the roof, the glass supplied will fully comply with BS6206, the British Standard for safety glass. Where Polycarbonate glazing material is specified, this is strong and shatterproof. Conservatory roofs can aid escape from windows above in the event of a fire. Ultrafarmes roof system incorporates specially designed glazing bar features to prevent thieves removing the glazing material in order to gain access.

Polycarbonate is a very popular glazing material for conservatory roofs as it is lightweight, durable and exceptionally strong - up to 200 times stronger than glass and virtually shatterproof. All polycarbonates work to lessen the glare and heat from the sun to ensure that your conservatory can be comfortable all year round.
Polycarbonate is available in a wide range of colours - clear, bronze, opal, bronze on opal and heatguard to suit your chosen conservatory colour.
All the above mentioned polycarbonates are designed to reduce glare and minimise solar heat gain. Bronze on Opal gives a bright internal appearance even on a dull day, reduces solar heat gain and provides privacy.
Heatguard limits the potential for heat build up within the conservatory whilst allowing the light to enter the roof, deflecting solar radiation.
