Conservatory roof innovators, Leka Systems, have launched their new ecotech roofing system giving fabricators and installers even more opportunities to add value to their portfolio.
Although Leka already delivers building control compliant roof systems, the new Leka ecotech roof is one of the most technologically advanced roofing systems on the market today, achieving 0.15w/m2k whilst being incredibly economic in the process.
Commenting on the new product introduction, Rhys Hoddinott, Managing Director of Leka Systems, said: “Our new Leka ecotech roofing system ensures compliance for installers but as importantly, maintains a competitive pricing point in the process. The new ecotech roof is thermally efficient by design and is a further extension of our popular Leka Warm Roof, Leka Orangery and Leka xi roofing products but at a more competitive pricing point.”
The new Leka ecotech roof uses the same technological innovation as the market-leading Leka Warm Roof. It is manufactured from a structurally tested, high grade GRP profile system, which means no cold bridging or condensation, as you see in roofs constructed using aluminium and timber. It all adds up to a genuinely lightweight roof that achieves a U value of just 0.15 W/m²K, which will be very appealing to homeowners looking for thermally-efficient products that meet compliance requirements.
Leka roofing products have become popular with fabricators and installers since they made their debut into the industry in 2015. In the past twelve months, the company has trained many fabricators and installers to help them get up and running with Leka products. This shows just how quickly Leka products have proved their value in the marketplace.
Rhys says: “The conservatory roof market is changing rapidly and fabricators need to ensure they’re offering the products that installers need to compete in the new landscape. The changes to Part L of Building Regulations covering thermal efficiency have had a huge impact on many solid roof manufacturers, and it has never been more important for fabricators and installers to offer the best in energy-compliant products. And with the rise in energy prices, more consumers will be looking at ways to improve the thermal efficiency of their conservatories and extensions too.”
In recent years there has been a big shift away from standard white box conservatories to higher value spaces that deliver homeowners greater flexibility. This shift forms part of the recent home improvement boom, with many homeowners either extending their properties or repurposing existing conservatory extensions.
Rhys, said: “Our Leka roofing products are ideal for both new build and refurbishment projects and allow fabricators and installers to differentiate themselves from the competition and add real value to their offer. Our new ecotech roof with its superb u values and price offering will further enhance the Leka roof appeal.”
Leka systems’ commitment to product development is a cornerstone of its ethos. The launch of the Leka eccotech roof is the latest product development that demonstrates its ongoing commitment to working with fabricators to bring the products they need at a price they like!
