Glazed roofing still a big market says Prefix

Glazed roofs for a wide variety of applications continue to be at the core of sales for Prefix Systems, across their network of fabrication sites which cover the whole of the UK. The company are in a unique position as the only one with such a geographical reach and localised technical support, for the conservatory and lantern roof sector.

Their 22-year experience has seen considerable change in the specification of the conservatory roof, with more choice than ever before in terms of colour, glass specification and architectural detailing. This also extends to the new contemporary URBANroom gutter shroud, which has been designed and developed by Prefix Systems exclusively for their customers.

Recent major investment at Prefix Systems has seen the introduction of a state of the art paint line ensure they are well positioned to cope with growing demand for colour roofs. This investment will enable the company to offer its customers any roof in any colour, backed up by superior quality and improved lead times.

The evolution and increase in demand for glazed home extensions has come about in two distinct roof forms; true orangeries such as the iX250 and the glass and tile hybrid, in the form of the impressive WARMroof hybrid.

The iX250 utilises a fully insulated, structural deck, which is supplied in easy to handle ladder sections and is topped off with a glazed lantern roof, including the Prefix OPUS hardwood timber offering to the inside face. While the WARMroof hybrid combines our award-winning solid WARMroof, with triple glazed panels integrated into one structure, ensuring maximum natural light with stunning aesthetics both internally and externally.

Chris Cooke, co-director of Prefix Systems commented: ‘Prefix was built on the success of the conservatory roof sector and this remains very much the core of our business 22 years later. There’s considerable scope for new thinking in conservatory and extension design and we’d like to think we’re at the cutting edge of this new view, with an unrivalled product range, combined with our renowned levels of customer service.’

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.
