So what foils us? Prefix Systems has the answers

So What Foils UsPrefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent conservatory manufacturer and has helped open up in a new era for the conservatory market that will affect everyone throughout the supply chain, culminating in increased consumer demand for more coloured conservatories. The humble white conservatory still dominates sales in terms of volumes, yet the sales of coloured and woodgrain roofs show an incredible and broad split. As the largest independent conservatory roof fabricator in the UK, Prefix has a broad grasp on trends and now see 1 in 5 orders through their factory with a foiled finish. Interestingly, over the last 6 months grey has increased to 38% of all foiled roofs, with foiled white and foiled black each equating to 16%. Chartwell green remains popular with 13%, cream 10% and the first woodgrain, Irish oak at 7%. 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 cost-effective and exclusively engineered Bi-Span system.

Conservatory specification is clearly on the rise with new colours, enhancements such as cornice and pilaster and Ultraframe’s impressive 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 and above all, Loggia Prestige can be considered as the ultimate beauty enhancement for any home.

Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, co-directors of Prefix Systems commented: ‘Colours are clearly here for the long-term and our range of 7 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.’
