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.’
