An Orangery Fit for Kings

The King family had a dated conservatory which was in need of a revamp and they also wanted to add extra space to allow them to enjoy open plan living. They were keen to add a large, contemporary glass roof to their extension and worked with their local Ultraframe installer, Niddal Windows and Conservatories, to design a showstopping orangery extension featuring the Ultraframe Classic Roof.

The extension is over 6.5m wide and features several sets of contemporary bi-fold doors in anthracite grey. To complete the modern look, a roof with streamlined good looks was needed, and the Classic Roof with its new slimline ridge was the perfect choice. The new slimline ridge is thermally broken, available in either PVC or aluminium externally, and can be specified on fixed 25° Georgians and double-ended 25° Georgians.

Commenting about the transformation from tired conservatory, to stunning contemporary orangery, homeowner Mr King said: “When we started to think about demolishing our existing conservatory and creating an open plan extension, we knew that the roof was key. We wanted something that looked modern and after doing our research, we soon found that Ultraframe was the best option, with the Classic Roof and its new slimline ridge fitting the bill perfectly. We love the open-plan space and the light it has brought into the back of our home is fantastic.”

The new slimline ridge was launched in January along with a number of other enhancements to Ultraframe’s Classic system, including a bi-fold support beam, super bolster, chambered box gutter and enhanced structural design guide. Unsurprisingly, the slimline ridge has proved extremely popular with Classic users since its launch, as it reinforces Classic’s status as the ideal roof for large span contemporary orangeries and extensions.


Commenting about the new slimline ridge, Ultraframe Marketing Director, Alex Hewitt, said: “The new slimline ridge offers a much more modern look than the usual Classic radius end and looks similar to a lantern-style ridge end. This new slimline look, coupled with the external aluminium option makes Classic a fantastic choice for modern conservatory designs, especially those featuring aluminium bi-folds. We have also reduced pricing on Classic Aluminium by 30% which we’re sure will make this contemporary option even more popular! While the Classic system has been around for almost 40 years, the new Slimline Ridge has brought it bang up to date in terms of aesthetics, while still offering all the configurability and technical benefits that it always has.”
