SupaLite launches new glass roof system

The S2 marks a new era for SupaLite which now supplies and manufactures a range of glazing extension products made predominantly of glass.  While SupaLite are experienced suppliers of tiled and hybrid roof systems, the development of the S2 signals an exciting shift in the replacement roof market providing more choice for ambitious installers.

The development of the S2 was inspired by the K2 glazing extension roofing system which was incredibly popular but unfortunately only had a short-amount of time on the market, leaving installers without a first-rate option for a glass conservatory roof.

With a clear gap in the market, SupaLite partnered with leading aluminium extruders, Garnalex, to introduce something new enabling the conservatory roof replacement specialists to diversify their range of glazing extension products and respond to growing demand.

Garnalex embarked on three years of exhaustive product development and with support from SupaLite, the long awaited glass conservatory roof was introduced.

Complete with a selection of multi-chambered PVC-U or aluminium top caps exclusive to Garnalex roofs, the S2 offers an upgraded conservatory experience thanks to its enhanced ventilation, and unique flush low-line appearance.

Without compromising any technical advantages, the S2 exists as a modern contemporary roofing system due to the squared cappings across the roof and trims. The option to add high-quality finals and crestings is also available helping to create a more traditional finish – offering versatility that was previously unavailable with the original K2 roofing system.

The incredible strong ‘box’ eaves beam affords homeowners the option to include panoramic doors that open to the surrounding landscape and accommodate conservatory pitches from as low as 2.5° to a steep 37.5°. 

This shows that the S2 can be easily tailored to the suit the needs and unique design choices of the homeowner, which is fantastic news for ambitious installers who are looking to widen their own offering to consumers across the UK.

Wes Clarkson, Sales Director at SupaLite, comments: “The S2 has exceeded our expectations here at SupaLite. Thanks to Garnalex, what started as a remodel of the K2 Conservatory Roofing System quickly developed into the creation of a conservatory roof that will no doubt be recognised as a leading product in the glazing extension market.

“As we prioritise customer feedback, we wanted to act upon requests to offer both glass and tiled conservatory roof replacement products. Knowing our customers value our services so highly encouraged us to explore this new avenue; the absence of the K2 prompting us to address the demand for its replacement without neglecting our commitment to quality service and customers.

“Having started to supply successful glass glazing extension products, such as the S1 roof lanterns and SkyVista glass panel features, developing a complete conservatory roof system seemed the next natural step. In doing so, we’re able to provide installers with an alternative roof option.

“Our operations team have been working hard to refurbish a retired warehouse facility into a modern roof manufacturing plant dedicated to the S2 and additional glass glazing extension products.

“Thanks to this expansion, our capacity to now offer high end orangeries, complicated T-shapes and simple lean-to’s all from one system allows us to continue manufacturing exceptional quality glazing extension products without any obstacles. The S2 has impressively launched us into the next phase of our 2023 growth strategy.

“We are beyond excited to see where this new chapter in conservatory roofing will take us and thrilled to see that the initial launch of the S2 has been so well received.”
