Prefix Systems says it is the UK’s largest independent conservatory manufacturer and claims to have helped ‘open up a new era for the conservatory market that will affect everyone throughout the supply chain, culminating in increased consumer demand for more coloured conservatories’.
According to Prefix, the ‘humble’ white conservatory still dominates sales in terms of volumes, yet sales of coloured and woodgrain roofs show an ‘incredible and broad’ split. Prefix reports that currently, one in five orders through its factory are for a foiled finish.
The company claims that over the last six months, grey has increased to comprise 38% of all foiled roofs, with white and black each equating to 16%. Chartwell green remains popular with 13%, cream takes 10% and Irish oak 7%.
The conservatory manufacturer reports that some of the grey foiled, pre-fabricated conservatory roofs are going into installations with bi-folding doors, which often necessitate additional structural strength in the form of Prefix’s Bi-Span system.
According to Prefix, ‘conservatory specification is clearly on the rise with new colours and enhancements such as Cornice and Pilaster and Ultraframe’s new Loggia Prestige system’. This system consists of three narrow Loggia columns, along with a Prestige insulating pelmet and LivinLight, which provides a variety of lighting designs.
Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, co-directors of Prefix Systems, commented: “Colours are clearly here for the long term and our range of seven foils supports the growing range of colours from stock of the leading window systems companies. In addition we are now manufacturing Residence 9 and are the only company in the UK able to manufacture a complete conservatory and solid roof solution for this revolutionary system.”
