Te PVCu Conservatory & Orangery market has for many years used simple window bay posts and couplings systems to join the window & door frames together, simple and easy to assemble but lack any style or character making most Conservatories and Orangery’s look virtually identical whatever profile is used.

On the other hand the timber market use beautiful fluted Georgian styled posts and coupling to add character and style to these handmade buildings, not one to sit back and say it cannot be done in plastic KWS have designed and developed a system that now adds the same style and character to the PVCu market, made from GRP and designed to be used on any profile or roof system the Georgian corner post and capping system from KWS can transform any Conservatory or Orangery into a stunningly beautiful building to be proud of, so impressed with the style and looks of the system Synseal Extrusions decided to use our system on the launch of their new orangery roof system.

‘KWS have designed and developed a system that now adds the same style and character to the PVCu market’

A truly innovative product that meets the demands of the customer without having


Conservatory specialist, Prefix Systems, has launched its eagerly anticipated Gardenroom roof, which is set to open up an entirely new market segment for the company’s nationwide network of installers.

As the market evolves, Prefix says many homeowners are now seeking something more in keeping with house design.

Te Gardenroom roof from Prefix Systems has been in development for some time and is designed for both new installations and the emerging replacement market. Te structure features a different approach to roofing a conservatory, using fixed joints at the ridge which are more in common with traditional methods of roof construction, helping to provide a very stable structure.

Pitches from 12.5 to 40 degrees are

available as standard, with lower pitch variations available on request, with roof designs in lean-to, Georgian/ Edwardian, gable and Victorian variants.

Te Gardenroom roof has also been designed with a number of unique features including new oak struts, which provide a contemporary twist to a traditional truss, or tie bar in a conservatory, to increase the spanning capabilities.

Further design features include an eaves

overhang to mirror traditional roofs and impressive insulation values as low as 0.17W/m²K. Te fundamentally important insulated eaves combined with a continuous top layer of insulation, means condensation is eradicated, through the unique design features on the Gardenroom roof.

Inline with a value added product, there is a 50 year warranty on the roof tile and where the customer wants the Gardenroom roof to match the existing house tiles or slate, Prefix can supply their proven Retro-fix posts to support the larger roof loads with slate or tiles.

Installation time is very quick thanks to the pre-engineered roof panels, which have the

insulation already fixed and simply drop into place between the aluminium frame, leaving the inside ready for the plaster board to be fitted. Velux rooflights are also available, with the panels pre-prepared for these to fit in without any additional on site preparation.

Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, director of

Prefix Systems enthused: “We are absolutely thrilled with this new development, which is a radical deviation from a typical conservatory roof. It is also the result of our own R&D process, something that we are truly proud of and we believe that we are taking the additional living space conundrum to a new dimension.”

to move supplier, the simple insertion of a 50mm frame extension between the window frame and corner post is all that is required to enable the capping system to be fitted. Simple, straight forward and stunningly beautiful is how one customer described the product.

Te system can be viewed installed on a Conservatory and Porch at the Companies showroom in Burton on Trent
