roofing system used on our PVC-U bespoke conservatories
has been put through rigorous tests to ensure
it meets demanding standards. Results show that
it should withstand over 25 years wear and tear
in British weather conditions. You can see from
the standards described below the roofs are
built to exacting requirements and in accordance
with all relevant British Standards and Codes
Snow: Each roof is designed to withstand minimum
loads of 75kg/metre uniformly distributed and
91kg/metre concentrated on a roof (for comparison,
the average weight of an adult is 70kg). This
conforms to BS 639: Part 3 1998 – Snow
Loading for Buildings.
Wind: All roofs have been designed to be structurally
sound and watertight when subjected to severe
gusts of wind as typically experienced in the
UK. These range from 83-125 mph.. This conforms
to CP3 Chapter V: Part 2: 1972 Wind Loadings.
Structural strength: Our bespoke roofs are
constructed in aluminium that is then clad in
PVC-U. All the aluminium has been tested in
terms of strength, stability, and durability.
The bespoke roofs are constructed from the
K2 roofing system, which is one of the leading
brands in the UK conservatory market.
