CHOICE OF CORNICES
Our cornices are available in the following styles:

- 3-tier flat cornice
- Curved cornice
They are also available in a wide range of colours to match the specifications of your project.
Trickle Ventilation system in the ridge
Harness natural upward movement of warm air to carry stale, moist air to the roof apex for venting outside. Covering 300mm² of ventilation per linear metre of ridge, this is standard in all duo pitch (Victorian, Georgian, Gable etc) Classic roofs. A version of this feature is included in the wallplate in lean to designs.
It's vital to the maintenance of a confortable environment - ventilation is often overlooked by both consumers and manufacturers, but not by Ultraframe, who are still the only conservatory roof brand to offer in built trickle ventilation as standard.
Extras & Upgrades
A decorative cornice adds shape and style to any roofline, concealing gutters and rafter ends. Best of all there are 4 styles to choose from.
Design the width of the internal pelmet, suiting any new room from 300mm to 1200m. The added insulation in the pelmet will ensure your new orangery or extension is always warm, welcoming, and cosy.
The curved cornice includes a die cast 135° and 90° corner cover as well as straight jointers, which will help fitters achieve a consistent fit and finish at critical junctions. 1, 2 & 3 tier Cornice ONLY 90° corners and straight jointers available.
INSULATED INTERNAL PELMET
The insulated internal pelmet uses the well proven Ultraframe classic glazed roof at its heart and then adds an engineered framing system internally, which is plastered to give a perimeter ceiling all the way round. This creates something that is neither conservatory nor extension.
It combines all the benefits of the former in terms of light and then fuses this with the solidity and feel of an extension. This effect can be played up or down depending on whether glazed walls or masonry walls are specified. All of this can be achieved at a price point not dissimilar to that of a standard conservatory.
Opening Roof Vents
Roof vents can be specified with a pole operated screw jack mechanism or you can opt for a full climate control package of ram sensor and thermostat.
