Fabricators and Installers of the innovative Guardian Roof
Fully tested and approved to all thermal and structural standards, the Guardian™ roof is a high performance insulated roof system comprising of a pre-engineered lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internal insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood and a vapour membrane. All together this creates a thermally efficient living space; keeping the warm air out in the summer and preventing the heat from escaping in the winter thus saving the amount of heat energy required to keep the room at an ambient temperature.
Since October 2010, it has been possible for anyone to put a solid roof onto a conservatory, however in August 2013 the LABC released a circular containing some basic rules that must be followed. This applies to any roof that, with any conversion is no longer made of a clear or translucent material.
The Building as a whole must be structurally sound. Any alterations that affect the original structure must be carefully considered. The foundations must be checked to ensure their suitability for an increased loading. The conservatory window framework must be assessed also and the new roof structure must be proven structurally sound.
The new roof only must comply with part L of building regulations. This means the overall U value (thermal measurement) of the new roof must comply with current building regs (currently 0.18).
More information on these building regulations can be found here.
The guardian roof is only lightweight tiled roof system that is fully approved by the London Authority of Building Control. As part of the installation process Country view will take care of all aspects of the building control process. For supply only orders, Country view will connect customers with asw consultants, our private building control partner.
FT centre pivot windows are the most popular type of FAKRO roof window. The well-designed centre pivot allows the sash to be opened in a range of positions, thus increasing the amount of fresh air which can be drawn into the room. The sash can also be rotated through 180° and locked, allowing easy and safe cleaning of the outer pane to be carried out. Such pivot windows are operated using a two-part hinge.
As the air inlet is positioned at the top of the frame, FAKRO windows have a 6% greater surface area when compared with similar sized windows made by other manufacturers. As a result they maximise the amount of natural light in a room. Non-standard window specifications, such as windows with automatic air-vents, are available to order: FTP-V/H, FTP-V/P. Also available in conservation style.
