The difference is night and day.
If you’re looking to specify a conservatory roof that offers greater thermal efficiency, with U-values as low as 0.15, and lower noise levels than conventional conservatory roofs, while complying with all Building Regulations – Equinox is the solution
Outdoor rooms you can use every day
Without constant heating or cooling, traditional conservatories with glazed or polycarbonate roofs can rarely be used all year round. Eurocell now offers an advanced, solid and fully insulated roof system that enables any occasionally used conservatory to be transformed into an every-day living space.
The easy way to revitalise old conservatory roofs
Equinox is a fully insulated tiled roof system, available in kits for simple retrofitting to existing conservatories. It’s the ideal replacement for aging glass or polycarbonate roofs – or as an alternative roof for brand new conservatories.
Energy-saving design for year-round comfort
The roof has solid insulation panels integrated within the structure, achieving an incredibly low U-value of 0.15. Such superior energy efficiency means no more extremes of temperature inside the conservatory, making it a comfortable room in all weathers.
Attractive styling – inside and out
The roof can be fitted with slate-style tiles or standard tiles in a range of colours to complement any property. The internal surface of the roof can be finished with a modern plasterboard or tongue and groove timber ceiling, creating the look and feel of a conventional home extension.
Exciting alternative to conventional conservatory roofs
Equinox conservatory roofs offer an exciting new roofing option, enabling you to specify a robust, energy-efficient and attractive alternative to conventional conservatory roofs.
The Equinox roof enables you to transform under-used and uncomfortable conservatories into genuine extensions of the living space in any property, creating cosy, welcoming rooms for year-round use.
Under current editions of the Building Regulations, Building Control approval is required for any alterations to structures under 30m2. Planning Permission and Building Control approval is required for any structure over 30m2. Some unscrupulous suppliers may suggest that Building Control consent is not required for replacement conservatory roof projects. This is incorrect and misleading. However, in Eurocell’s experience, different authorities have different procedures for gaining consent, which in many cases are very simple and straightforward.
You should seek the advice of your local planning authority before starting any building project. Details of your local planning department can be found at www.planningportal.gov.uk
