KRB now offer a new breed of orangery roof design. The slimmest and one of the strongest mock orangery roof systems in the industry, the ‘Skyroom’ is the latest addition to the range of aluminium conservatory and lantern roofs.
Our Skyrooms are a fully aluminium, slim-line, thermally broken system which brings the much sought after contemporary designer style of an orangery at a price that’s affordable for most homeowners. With less visible profile and more glass, thanks to a 70% slimmer ridge and 30% slimmer rafter, it blends design aesthetics, outstanding strength and unrivalled thermal performance – all under one orangery roof.
HERE'S SOME EXAMPLES
The roof has been created with both internal and external aesthetics in mind. Inside, the Skyroom combines a subtle roof frame and slim 40mm internal ridge and rafter sections with maximum glazing to optimise the sense of light and space. A unique raised ring beam creates the luxurious appearance of a real orangery lantern roof, whilst unique hidden or rafter tie bar supports eliminate the need for unsightly rod tie bars. And unlike many of its rivals, there are no boss or hoods to intrude on the roof’s slim-line ridge.
On the outside, low level capping helps to minimise external sightlines and a unique 300mm aluminium cornice adds bold architectural detailing and creates the authentic appearance of an orangery. Bi-folding doors up to a width of 4000mm can be accommodated thanks to the Skyroom’s reinforced ring beam. The Skyroom is available in Edwardian or Hipped Edwardian styles and in any RAL colour.
The rafter is available with double glazing which has a U Value of 0.9 W/m2k. When triple glazed, the roof rafter achieves an impressive U value of 0.95 W/m2k and 0.6 W/m2k glass U Value. The overall roof is capable of achieving a U Value as low as 1.0 W/m2k, depending on the size and style of the roof.
