This is a system that’s becoming increasingly popular for three season outdoor living as a premium patio area and for other outdoor applications where coverage or shading is required. The Verandah has also become popular with commercial projects and has been installed outside schools, hospitals, restaurants and other areas where shelter is needed, which is why an increase in colour interest has grown for Prefix. The Verandah opens opportunities for outdoor living all year round, with wall patio heaters also available from Prefix. With the option of any RAL finish in either the PVCu or aluminium variants, customers can look beyond the standard black crackle and white to other inspired colours and finishes. » » THE FULLY THERMALLY Chris Cooke, co-director of Prefix Systems commented: ‘Verandah has been an overwhelming success over the last two years and with the thirst for new colours and finishes across the home improvement sector, we’re now able to offer this and other products in any RAL finish.” Pelmets just got quicker! » » SYNSEAL GROUP HAS LAUNCHED the quickest and easiest to install variable pelmet on the market. Available for their K2, Global and Celsius Solid Roof systems, this refreshingly simple-to-use product gives their roof installers the edge in getting quality installations completed quickly. The new variable pelmet system covers pitches from 12.5° to 35° and depths ranging from 300 to an impressive 1100mm, giving customers the flexibility to create the right look for every space. The pelmet has been designed from the ground up to adapt to every roof configuration, and easily accommodates varying roof pitches and valleys seen in P and T-shaped conservatories. This highly adaptable product comes fully prepped, ready for screwing in place – enabling installations to be done in record time. Phil Parry, Head of Research and Development at Synseal Group, said: “Our new variable pelmet gives our conservatory and orangery roof customers more flexibility to design rooms exactly to their customers’ specifications. Previously customers were limited by only being able to work with equal pitches.. “We are confident that roof customers are going to appreciate the introduction of a variable pelmet which is quicker and easier to fit than market competitors.” 80 » OCT 2017 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M broken Stratus lantern roof from Synseal Group is on track to hit 1000 fully fabricated sales within its first year, on top of the success that Synseal’s bar length fabricators have found with this great new product. Sales of the aluminium lantern roof system have consistently grown every quarter since it was launched in September 2016 with customers loving the sleek aluminium exterior, slim sightlines and genuine thermal efficiency. Despite being launched at a typically quiet time of year, Stratus was an instant hit with Synseal’s roof customers, in part thank to a sneak peek at the 2016 FIT Show which whet their appetite for the fully thermally broken design. On show was the Contemporary style which supports the ridge solely by the hip rafters, creating a product which maximises the area of glazing in sizes up to 1.5m x 3m. For larger applications Stratus is also available in Two-way and Three-way styles up to an impressive 3m x 6m. The carefully designed thermally broken eaves beam has been finished in black so from a birds eye view, the perimeter appears as a discreet shadow line even on the largest Stratus lanterns.
