Tailored Systems Ltd introduced the Equinox Tiled Roof System to its portfolio with the intention of offering an alternative roofing option capable of allowing full round of the year use of your conservatory irrespective of the climatic conditions outside.
The roof consists of an aluminium substructure which can be erected on your existing conservatory base and windows. The area between the bars is then insulated with a 100mm thick insulation block. This is then overdrawn with a layer of marine ply and finally covered with a waterproof membrane.
The external of the roof can be finished in either the metrolite pressed steel tile or with the more conventional Tapco tile. The internal of the roof would be finished with a 56mm plasterboard backed insulation panel which can be skimmed or cladded.
The total installed roof structure will achieve a ‘U’ value of 0.18 ( 0.15 for the Scottish market ).
Large opening or fixed lights can be incorporated in the roof design giving both light and ventilation to the area.
External soffits and gutters can be colour matched to the existing frames.
The Tapco slates offer an alternative to the metrolite tiles on the Equinox roof, but can also be used as an alternative to natural slate. Made from limestone and polypropylene the tiles are lightweight, durable and come in a range of colours to look identical to their natural counterparts.
