Ultraframe launches its new flat roof

Ultraframe has announced the launch of a new Flat Roof system which is the ultimate choice for contemporary flat roof extensions or any style of orangery. The new Flat Roof is fully compatible with Ultraframe’s revolutionary hup! building system which made its debut at the recent FIT Show.  

Explaining more about the Clitheroe-based company’s latest roofing system, Ultraframe Marketing Director Alex Hewitt said: “Our new Flat Roof system makes ordering and fitting a flat roof so simple and offers a huge number of benefits vs building a flat roof in the traditional manner. For each roof there is one order with structural calculations, lanterns and skylights included. This not only makes ordering easy, but it also saves our customers the large expense associated with a structural engineer. While the Flat Roof alone is a fantastic system, coupled with our new hup! building system, it really does offer a fantastic way to build highly energy efficient extensions and orangeries in a fraction of the time of a traditional build.”

The new Ultraframe Flat Roof at a glance: 

• One roof, one order with structural calculations, lanterns and skylights included;

• 7 soffit and fascia designs including elegant cornices; 

• BBA approved Ultrapanel technology;

• Spans up to 5.6m without steels;

• Supports rooflights up to 5.7m by 3m;

• Thermal performance that exceeds Building Regulations – 0.12W/(m²K);

• Fully insulated ring beam and kerb;

• Up to 50% faster to fit than traditional methods;

• Time saving, patented Pitchlock fall system;

• Delivered as a flat-packed kit with easy-fit soffits and clip-fit panels.

Explaining further, Alex said: “As with all Ultraframe roof systems, the strength of our new Flat Roof is phenomenal, meaning it can span up to 5.6m without steels. This superior strength also means that extra large rooflights up to 5.7m x 3m can be supported. Rooflights of this size bring in an immense amount of natural light to the room below as well as adding an undeniable wow factor.”

Speed of fitting is another huge benefit of the new Flat Roof, with fitting times being slashed by 50% when compared with a traditional flat roof build. Not only fast, the Ultraframe Flat Roof also offers on-site ease, thanks to its flat-packed nature and easy clip components. Finally, as with other roofs in the Ultraframe portfolio, the Flat Roof offers class-leading thermal performance of 0.12W/(m2K) that exceeds the upcoming enhanced Building Regulations.
