Widest Range of Styles, Award Winning Performance
Our products are built by the globally-established Ultraframe company who have led the way in developing conservatory technology and whose factory has been voted the Best Engineering Plant in the UK by the widely-respected Cranfield Institute. Their innovations in roof construction means they offer the most configurable conservatory roofs on the market and the widest range of individually-tailored traditional and contemporary styles and designs to suit every budget. The Ultraframe Classic Aluminium suite design adds state-of-the-art ideas and design engineering to smart, elegant styling to provide a strong, rigid yet lightweight system that can be built into virtually any conservatory roof design
It also means we can meet your needs and aspirations for an extension, a conservatory or orangery in even the most awkward places because the designs and materials are so flexible. This helps us overcome problems with matters such as drainage, manhole covers, boiler flues, large trees and tree roots and sloping sites. Our surveyors and installers have the experience, know-how and technological 2D and 3D CAD design and engineering back-up to make things work perfectly.
We Keep the Weather Out Year after Year
The roof is perhaps the most important part of any conservatory. Ultraframe’s innovations mean you can be assured they are built to withstand the most extreme structural stress created by weather conditions such as heavy snow loads or extreme high winds.
The company’s unique design process ensures that the products are envisioned and engineered to meet the worst the British winter can throw at them, which is why they were the first to receive the approval of the British Board of Agrement certification body for outstanding construction – and have held it since 1996.
The designers also use weather data supplied by the Building Research Establishment to remove worries about matters such as the once-in-a-lifetime snowfall that would pile weight on to the building. They can even match those statistics to your address and postcode in Essex and throughout the Home Counties for more peace of mind.
Our Thermally Efficient Conservatories Keep Energy Bills Down
Our bespoke conservatories and orangeries are also the most thermally efficient on the market, so you’ll be warm in winter and cool and relaxed when you throw open the doors and windows in summer.
They are built with high-performance thermally efficient Conservaglass, which is available in a range of four colours – blue, clear, aqua and brown. This product improves heat retention in winter for extra comfort and reduced costs and reflects away heat in summer-time. It is also eco-friendly, which is an important consideration these days.
All the colours offer excellent warmth conservation but, if for example, you want to most efficiently block out harmful UV rays, aqua offers up to 92 per cent protection. Even furnishings are protected, as fading is connected to UV radiation. That is how detailed this technology has become as the manufacturers seek to provide home improvement projects with the best quality and value available.
PVC top cappings covering the bars beneath your roof panels deliver added thermal efficiency and the Utopia eco-roof has a U value of 0.53 – virtually eliminating draughts and chills. It requires only 788 kilowatt hours of energy to heat – a massive 62% less than an ordinary roof – which will save you pounds in energy bills year after year.
Protecting Your Conservatory with A Ten-Year Guarantee
Conservaglass comes with a 10-year guarantee to give you complete relaxation and enjoyment, too. Each conservatory and orangery comes with an Ultraframe Certificate of Authenticity, which counts as a legal document to add value to your home and to assure future buyers you have invested in all the wide-ranging benefits of the company’s products.
Maintaining a Comfortable Conservatory Temperature
Ventilation is important for your comfort as well. Ultraframe are the only company who fit a patented ventilation system as standard. This allows a free flow of air and minimises condensation. South-facing constructions, for example, must deal correctly with the amount of direct sunlight they receive in Summer. North-facing sites require efficient heating options for the colder months of the year. Overshadowing by neighbouring buildings and large trees are other issues with which we deal efficiently and expertly at the design stage. Roof vents are the best way to allow warm air to escape from conservatories and to bring in cool air. Ultraframe have developed a trickle ventilation system which fits into the roof ridges and encourages the movement air and minimises condensation. They are opened using a pole operated screw jack mechanism. There is also available an Eavesflow system which is a trim that fits between the conservatory wall side frame and roof and gives built-in ventilation with a slider on/off control button. We can also install rain sensors and thermostats. And we’ll install under-floor heating if you wish for an added guarantee of warmth and comfort as you relax, enjoy family time or wine and dine with friends during the long winter nights.
These examples show how you can enjoy the benefits and the assurance of the latest science to creating your dream home – whether it is a Georgian style conservatory, a Victorian three or five bay style, a sparkling, modern glass extension, a lean-to style building or a P or T style conservatory.
Wide Range of Colours and Decorative Features
You can match these superb, modern options with a bespoke range of wall and frame colours to create the ideal up-to-date or classical look to suit your wishes. The finishing touches are just as important, too. There is a vast range of decorative features available including crestings and finials, Cornices and dentil mouldings and fans. Ultraselect decorative strips are also attractive. And a huge range of lighting choices is available – spotlights in a white or brass finish, for example, create a wonderful ambience and a cosy mood in the evenings.
Conservatory Planning Permission
Conservatory and orangery planning laws have been simplified by the Government in recent years. They are keen for people to improve their homes, so they’ve made it easier. Often, conservatory planning permission isn’t required at all. That’s because, since October 2008, a new permitted development scheme has been in place. So many home-owners now don’t need a green light from the council to extend their home.
We can visit at your home or you can sit down with us at our HQ in Harlow, Essex for a free consultation to help explain the rules and how you may not require permission. We’ll help you to build and expand your home to your own desires instead.

Our building and conservatory installation teams take huge pride in workmanship. We’ll give you all the honest and helpful design advice and guidance you need to make the right choices about style, design, location and building requirements. So, we’ll make sure you get the best from your extra living space and enjoy your home improvement project for years to come.
