Ultraframe Roofing System
Ultraframe classic roofing system is used as standard on all Bluebell conservatories and orangeries and is acknowledged as the world leader in the design and manufacture of conservatory roofing systems with BBA (British Board of Agrement) roof system life expectancy certification of 25 years.
|•||Heavy duty aluminium framework for a stronger, weather resistant structure|
|•||Integrated gutter system for improved aesthetic appearance|
|•||Ridge trickle ventilation system to help prevent condensation (manually controlled)|
|•||Chambered top caps for better insulation (reduces heat loss by 4 degrees)|
Halo Frame Profiles
All uPVC frame profiles are manufactured using the elegantly designed, technically superior Halo system, available in fully sculptured and bevelled styles. Halo system features a 70mm fully reinforced multi-chambered profile with increased wall thickness, providing strength and durability together with excellent heat and noise insulation.
PCE low level gasket features a 3mm glazing flipper for an enhanced weather seal and is designed for maximum glass visibility with no unsightly gasket lines. Single leg bead provides performance to BS7950 Security Enhancement Standards.
Pilkington K energiKare glass is fitted as standard in all of our glazed products and features a high performance low-emissivity insulating soft thermal interior coating, together with argon filled cavities and warm edge spacer bar providing a superior level of insulation.
Pilkington Optiwhite KS glass has a highly neutral appearance and provides optimal solar heat gain, thermal insulation and light transmission, ensuring the highest Window Energy Rating (WER) performance.
Conservaglass represents the latest in glass technology, keeping the sun's energy out in summer and the interior warm in winter, blocking around 60% of the heat from the sun whilst still allowing excellent light transmission and with very low 'U' values for inner warmth. A transparent bio coating bonded onto the external surface also provides true self-cleaning properties, using the power of ultra-violet rays and the rain to break down dirt and grime to be washed clean away.
Energy rated windows are manufactured and rated using a scale of A+ to G. This rating indicates the energy efficiency value, with A+ rating being the highest. All Bluebell casement and sash windows carry an energy rating certificate which indicates an energy efficiency rating of A+5 or above, as assessed by the British Fenestration Council.

All of our entrance doors benefit from a strong and stable construction. uPVC panels are constructed from a reinforced MDF or ply board core, sandwiched between layers of high density fire resistant polystyrene which conforms to BS476. The exterior skin is manufactured from a fire retardant thermoplastic sheet which features a UV resistant finish for life long colour. Composite door slabs are constructed from an insulating core supported by stiles and rails which are manufactured from water resistant composite materials, providing superior heat and noise insulation. The exterior skin is manufactured from glass reinforced plastic which is compression moulded for high definition, giving an authentic timber appearance. The thermosetting process ensures the door slab is unaffected by variations in temperature. Both uPVC panels and composite slab cores exceed the 1.8 'U' value requirement for achieving minimal heat loss.
Security and Locking Systems
Windows and doors are internally glazed to prevent glass removal from the outside. Windows feature shoot bolts and hinge pins to prevent the frame from being levered open, with locking handles for added security and wide opening fire hinges on all side openers. Sash windows feature locking cam catches with night ventilation and safety restrictors. uPVC doors have internal beading to prevent panel removal and composite doors have a single piece high impact resin slab. Panels and frames are reinforced for extra strength. All entrance doors and garden doors are fitted with Yale® multi-point locking systems and high security cylinder locks.
Available as a complete system, which includes fascias, soffits, rainwater guttering/downpipes and dry verge, uPVC Homeline is both low maintenance and long lasting, and features a watertight construction, UV resistant materials and is designed not to warp, crack, flake or peel, with a working life of 40 years plus. Eaves mounted vents with bird guards also come as standard, providing an improved and more discreet form of roof ventilation.
