The success of Synseal’s Orangery Collection keeps on growing, with installations taking place throughout the UK.
One of the latest examples of this success is the installation of an Integra parapet wall style orangery in Lancashire. The choice of the Integra orangery design was driven by a desire from the homeowner to have an installation that would most closely achieve the look and feel of a fully brick-built extension, while still benefiting from the extra light that comes from having an overhead glass roof.
The Integra is unique in today’s marketplace in that the concealed lantern roof is designed to fit neatly behind the parapet wall for a very traditional orangery look, with no decorative external soffit or guttering system showing.
Networks UPVC was identified by the homeowner via K2’s online directory. They carried out the full installation, with the Integra orangery components being supplied by local K2 fabricator partner Premier Conservatories Supplies, based in Bolton.
Peter Marsden, owner of Networks UPVC Ltd, commented: “Our customer was extremely pleased with the finished product. The inside is airy and light, and has completely transformed this area of the house. We found the Integra kit very easy to install, saving us several days of installation in comparison to other solutions. In addition, our K2 fabricator, Premier Conservatory Supplies, was on hand to guide us through the installation of the orangery, which was done in less than 4 hours, thanks to everything being supplied cut to size and ready to use. There is no doubt that to see the frame in situ is very impressive; it really shows the strength and durability of the structural orangery system.”
Premier Conservatories Supplies Sales Director, Andrew Buglass added: “Historically we have mainly supplied Rio flat-roofed orangeries, so this new experience of supplying an Integra was extremely beneficial to our business. The Orangery Collection has been engineered specifically to use the same core structural design, with slight variations allowing for significant changes in the aesthetic look of each of the styles. I personally attended the build on site and it was good to see this new Integra quickly taking shape. The completed job features an impressive internal soffit and certainly looks the business, inside and out.”
The technical versatility of the Orangery Collection, combined with its multi-purpose engineering, means that retailing installers do not need to promote just one of the styles but can market the whole of the range with confidence. The structural nature of the system also means that wide span orangery project designs can be created, without the need for additional and costly portal frame support.
Installers can allow their homeowner customer prospects to choose from Synseal’s selection of Orangery Collection styles, safe in the knowledge that the installation team will be able to handle the job on site to perfection thanks to the common design features deployed right across the range.
