Synseal has redeveloped its eaves beam from the ground up to allow companies to extend the loading that 35mm polycarbonate and 24mm roof glass can be taken to. This enables break through sizes in Georgian and Victorian conservatory roofs.
“Wide span roofs from Synseal is an example of our ingenuity in design,” explained David Leng, Synseal’s chief executive. “We believe that no matter what your customers ask for, you should be able to deliver.
“Increased demand for bigger conservatories and ultra-wide bi-fold doors have led us to develop products that help you meet these demands.”
Synseal’s new heavy duty eaves beam and bi-fold door support now enables its customers to fit doors as wide as 5m, and by adding pre-fitted bolsters fixed to the underside fo the leg transom and hip rafters to deliver added strength the company can now offers standard roofs providing spans as wide as 6.5m.
For example, in the past a traditional Victorian roof, glazed with 35mm polycarbonate, would have a maximum span of 6m but now this has been extended to 6.5m. Similarly, a traditional Georgian fitted with 4:16:4 configuration roof glass would have been limited to a footprint width of 5m, whereas designs can now stretch to 5.75m.
“These figures have been verified following extensive testing by CMT, an independent UCAS-approved company, which subjected the Synseal eaves beam to a loading of 2 tons,” David said. A total of 2030kg was loaded through a 90º eaves beam section and one Georgian hip. This was held for seven days with only 1.3mm of deflection.
Global roofs are now available in over 22 finishes, including colour both sides across the entire range, on a five-day turnaround, and now in the widest range of sizes ever.
“For even bigger conservatories or glazed commercial structures we operate our own SkySpace portal frame department,” David concluded. “This experienced team is on hand to take the headache out of these large structures and just leave you to maximise the opportunities that this market can offer.”
