A common misconception of an Orangery is that they cost the earth. Yes, they are not bargain basement prices, but they are more economical than you’d think. Because we are Sika Sarnafil certified installers, all our Orangeries are fitted with materials that meet global standards and regulations including ISO 9001.
What’s the Difference?
There isn’t always a big difference between orangeries and conservatories, although they have some different characteristics. Both emerged at similar times in the 16th century and both were used to keep oranges and other fruit trees alive throughout the British winter.
In England, a structure is classed as a conservatory if at least 50% of its walls are glazed, as well as 75% of the ceiling, although it is often a higher percentage than that. The glass either spans the entirety of the walls or a small dwarf wall of around two feet is built to support the windows. Orangeries tend to have a higher proportion of brickwork and can appear more like a natural house extension than a separate room.
All of the glass we use is among the highest quality glass available and absolutely perfect for conservatories and orangeries. We have three different options to choose from depending on the location and usage of the structure, all of which have a minimum of 58% heat reflection and as little as 38% visible light transmission. Thanks to the construction of these argon-filled windows you can both reflect external heat and insulate interior warmth.
Rainfall and traffic noise are massively reduced when compared with polycarbonate and using the latest technology reduces the need for time-consuming manual cleaning by enabling rainwater to bead and run off the glass, taking dirt with it.
Our conservatories and orangeries are also made with Liniar and Halo systems, which are all completely lead-free, multi-chambered uPVC profile designs which go well beyond the British Standards for weather performance. Choose from dozens of effects, styles and door options with noiseless glide and an effortless opening mechanism.
