Garnalex has announced the launch of a conservatory roof system, the Sheerline S2, which is to be initially available exclusively through Prefix Systems and SupaLite.

The S2, which is based on the established K2 roof, features a choice of multi-chambered PVC-U or aluminium top caps, along with a distinctively refined aluminium gutter shroud and internal pelmet system.

Designed around a ‘box’ eaves beam, S2 is suitable incorporating wide panoramic doors into a conservatory space and can accommodate pitches from 2.5˚ to a steep 37.5˚. Modern ‘squared’ cappings and aesthetics are carried across the entire S2 roof and all trims, with the option to add finials and crestings for customers looking for a more traditional finish.

Garnalex CEO Roger Hartshorn said: “An aluminium conservatory roof was a natural product for Garnalex to introduce, especially working with industry leading partners. We are passionate about bolstering British manufacturing and vertical integration. Committed to extruding more of the UK’s requirements for high quality aluminium products domestically.

After the success of our S1 Roof Lantern, developing a complete conservatory roof system to meet changing market needs was the next natural step. It also gives customers looking for a conservatory roof another choice in a market that is becoming increasingly stagnant and devoid of innovation.

‘We knew when we committed to bringing a new roof system to market, we needed the right partners, experts in their field, to make it a success. Ensuring we built in practical experience and innovation into every component. It’s part of the foundations we’ve built the success of the core Sheerline range on, so partnering with Prefix was a natural choice.”

Prefix director Chris Cooke added: ‘We really like the development the team at Sheerline have engineered into the S2 roof system. The glazed extension market is evolving, and this product will fit perfectly in Prefix’s glazed roof offering.”

Sheerline will also be making its SheerVent intelligent roof vent available for S2. 

SupaLite sales director Wes Clarkson added: “S2 was the obvious choice when we were looking for a fully glazed roof to sell alongside our existing range of tiled solutions, with better thermal performance and a more up-to-date appearance than the other systems we’d looked at. Being able to offer high end ‘orangeries’ alongside complicated T-shapes and simple lean-to’s – all from one system will enable us to keep manufacturing to the exceptional quality that our customers expect.”
