EcoRoof Panels

TUFFX LAUNCHES DYNAMIC NEW ROOFING OPTION

When the UK Government introduced new Building Regulations in 2010 for the conservatory sector, which removed guidance on the definition of a conservatory, the TuffX research and development team began to look at ways this would help to grow the market.

 

In a circular dated 28 September 2010, a Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) letter stated that “Building Control Bodies will want to note that the definition of conservatory in terms of percentage translucent material as set out in previous editions of the Approved Documents no longer applies”.  This was subsequently incorporated into Section c25 of the new Building Regulations legislation.

 

A quick link to the full government document can be found:

Consequently, TuffX has created the ecoRoof Panel, after working to the new industry guidelines which declare that a solid conservatory roof is allowed as long as the conservatory :-

•           has a significant proportion of the roof and walls glazed (no % given)

•           is installed at   ground level

•           does not exceed 30m2

•           is compliant with relevant sections of Part K of Building Regulations

•           is thermally separated from the dwelling

•           and the property’s heating system does not extend into the conservatory or

porch

 

The ecoRoof Panel from TuffX is engineered from a solid, high performance but lightweight insulation core within a unique double layer of co-extruded material.

 

This exceptional new roofing product is a viable, cost effective alternative to polycarbonate that should help homeowners reduce their fuel bills and keep conservatories functional the whole year round particularly for roof repair projects.

 

Furthermore, eco Roof Panels are extremely versatile and would be ideal for replacement conservatory roof projects as well as partition walls, doors and balcony cladding, being quick and easy to install.  Available in 3m x 2m sheets these can be cut to size and tailored for individual installations then delivered nationwide via the Tuffx fleet.

 

Manufactured in 3 external colours of white (RAL 9016), slate grey (RAL 7016) and wood brown (RAL 8017) to  match the existing roofing style of a property, this new option is available in 24mm and 16mm thicknesses.  The lightweight composite roof panels provide a u-value of 0.99W/m2K (24mm thickness) or 1.46 W/m2K (16mm thickness) and offer an effective barrier against weather, sun’s glare and external rain noise.

Graham Price, Managing Director  at TuffX Processed Glass comments, “As many original conservatories are now coming to the end of their life expectancy, homeowners are looking for a cost effective way of retaining existing floor space whilst improving the energy efficiency of the structure and as such see the ecoRoof Panels as a viable alternative to polycarbonate ones.”

 

An introductory trade discount offer is currently available from TuffX, which has been very well received by existing and new customers with excellent feedback and enthusiastic requests for samples. Please visit the website www.ecoRoofpanels.co.uk for more information or call 0845 3 400 200
