What else is in a roof pod?

 

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.

 

Internally 2x2 battens (9) are fitted to create a further air gap(10) and allow 12.5mm foil backed plasterboard (11) to be attached, ready for a typical 2.5mm skim finish (12).

 

On the outside the pods are covered with a waterproof air permeable breather membrane (13) which lies below the tiles (14)/(15). All roofs are factory built and pre assembled to ensure accuracy and fast installation.

This not only reduces the time the old
conservatory has to be left open and
exposed to the elements but also minimises disruption and any mess
created by on site assembly.

 

Your solid roof will be supplied with a 10 year manufacturer's warranty.

 

 

 

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 0.18.
This “warm roof” design was conceived through the use of a pod system (patent granted) finished off externally with lightweight tiles, of your choosing.

 

Regulation compliant:

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.

*Glued laminated timber, also called glulam, is a type of structural timber product comprising a number of layers of timber bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant structural adhesives.
