An Orangery for all seasons with our Celsius Performance glass! #orangeryforallweather

This customer came to us with an existing Large Conservatory that was largely unusable due to the thermal performance. 

Min the summer the polycarbonate Roof and standard glazing made the building too hot and in the winter the room was too cold as the heat was able to escape through the panels.  

There aim was to create a full width building to incorporate both rooms on the ground floor to have access and had considered a solid roof, however were cons rned about the lack of natural light they would receive. As the property is on a large decline they needed a patio terraced with steps leading to the garden and access to a spa pool outside.

The Solution 

We removed the old Conservatory base frames ans roof. 

Built a full width brick built Orangery with side and front pillars for Internal and external strength and lighting. 

Side doors and windows and form Bifold doors for maximum access and natural light to enjoy the views of the gardens.

we installed a double hip Celsius Elite performance glass roof with easy clean coating Accoustic performance. Boasting an impressive list of attributes:

78% heat reflection

0.9 U-value

94% UV protection  

Easy clean  

visibility light transmission 34% 

This Roof is tested to approx 9 feet of snow load and approx 160 mile per hour wind speeds.  

Inside we have fitted LED spot lights and Electric inferred heaters.  

The flooring had been fitted with the very highest quality Vinyl for hard wearing traffic areas.  

out side we built a natural Stone patio with steps leading to the garden and access to the pool areas.

“Spectacular” K2 roof wins installation competition

The Build Directory based in the North East has become the fourth winner of Synseal Group’s monthly installation competition which recognises transformative installations shared on social media.

The Build Directory are a family builder with an ethos for making quality and affordable homes available to the masses. They offer a bespoke design service for conservatories and orangeries helping customers to achieve all-year-round rooms with advanced glass solutions from the Celsius performance range. Their winning installation for Synseal’s October competition is a stunning K2 roof incorporated into a period style orangery using reclaimed brick to complement the rest of the barn conversion.

Alisdair Beveridge at The Build Directory said:

The homeowners Dan and Angela have just moved into this barn conversion with reclaimed brick construction, but there were issues with the old conservatory which was too small for their large garden and had a plastic roof with all the typical problems of being too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer.

We opened up the back wall from the kitchen and dining room and built a large orangery with matching reclaimed brick and a spectacular K2 roof with Celsius Elite solar control glass. Now the family can enjoy their garden views in a comfortable, temperate room in all seasons with lots more space.

Celsius Elite glass has been specifically designed for use in Synseal Group’s K2, Global and Stratus roof ranges with 78% heat reflection, expelling as much as three times more solar energy than standard glass (let alone the plastic of the predecessor roof!) with impressive U-values of just 0.9 W/m²K.
