Raising the bar

Modplan has added the new Leka Xi conservatory base system to its range. Justin Williams, Modplan’s sales and marketing director, said: “The Leka Xi Conservatory Base System is a new modular extension that raises the bar in thermally efficient home extensions or garden rooms.

“Since its launch at FIT 2019, the latest addition to the Leka stable has been gaining plaudits due to its intelligent design that allows construction in just three to five days. It’s a superb product to further support our growing conservatory offer.”

The Leka Xi is a modular system that’s tailored to homeowner and installer requirements and is constructed using a Leka base, Leka walls and the Leka roof system. There are three or four-sided options, so it can be used for both home extensions and standalone garden rooms. There is a choice of finishes and options for dwarf walls, full walls or defined heights and internal partition options are available too, if a subdivided space is needed.

According to Leka, both the thermal efficiency and lifespan are ‘exceptional’ thanks to the GRP construction of the base, walls and roof.

The modular nature of the system means it is ideal for sites with access restrictions because it arrives flat-packed. It is also reported to be ‘exceptionally’ fast to install. Leka claims minimal groundwork is required and installation typically takes three to five days.
