A real and robust garden room

The Garden Room has clearly captured the imagination of the home improvement market and quite rightly so with the Prefix Systems’ Garden Room roof, the industry’s first real and robust solution that’s been fully structurally tested and designed to BS6399. Furthermore, sales are more than treble those forecasted for the first 12 months after launch, and are increasing rapidly by the month.

Prefix Systems are a BBA approved conservatory roof fabricator and have over 17 years experienced in the manufacture of roofs from the standard domestic types to huge commercial portal framed structures. With the introduction of Tim Harris as Prefix’s ‘in-house’ structural engineer, the company has accelerated its product development campaign with the installer in mind, yet based on sound engineering principles.

The most recent result of this product development programme that was conceived back in 2006 is the Garden Room Roof. Further development of the Garden Room Roof has followed the successful launch 12 months ago with the introduction of three new tile finishes and a stunning eaves overhand detail, with several new exciting developments to follow.

Much of the Garden Room Roof is pre-fabricated which according to Ian Gibson of Artisan Windows is a ‘joy to fit’, having completed 6 projects already and installation times have proven to be incredibly quick. Other customers have reached double figures in sales, as homeowners increasingly look towards new ways to extend their living space.

Chris Baron and Chris Cooke of Prefix Systems comment: ‘We’ve been first to market with a proven and fully tested design for a Garden Room roof and the response from customers has been overwhelming and the quantity sold is testament to this! We’re already taking a lead in the market for extended living and believe the prospects for this emerging sector are particularly strong.’

Prefix Systems (UK)

Prefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent fabricator of conservatory roofs with a history that dates back to 1996. Run by Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, the leading Ultraframe fabricator operates from a head office in Clayton-Le-Moors, Lancashire and from two further manufacturing sites in Northamptonshire and Swansea.

Prefix is the only conservatory fabricator in the UK with a number of regional fabrication facilities which provides the necessary expertise for the local market and the added support that goes with it. Prefix was arguably the first fabricator in the UK to provide a wide range of laminated colours which now extends to 10, along with a unique cast iron effect for gutters.

The company also has considerable expertise in portal frames and in the retro-fit market. There is an estimated replacement market of 3million conservatories and with their Retro-fix and Multibeam products developed with Window Widgets, Prefix is set to take a lead in addressing this important market sector.
