Eurocell announces new tiled roof system


Eurocell has today announced Equinox, an advanced tiled roof system that is suitable for new or refurbishment projects.

This latest addition to the range creates business opportunities for Eurocell customers by providing an effective method of transforming an existing, or creating a new roof on a wide variety of buildings. The Equinox tiled roof system forms a crucial element of any modern, easy to install approach to roofing.

The Equinox tiled roof system features solid insulation panels integrated in the structure, for superb thermal efficiency. Not only does this create a warmer, more comfortable living area in winter, but a cooler environment in summer, therefore reducing energy bills. The Equinox kits achieve an incredible U-value of 0.15, which comfortably exceeds current Building Regulations requirements.

An effective method of upgrading energy efficiency performance of conservatory roofs, the fully insulated system is perfect for replacing ageing original glass or polycarbonate. For customers that want to retain high levels of light passage into their home, the system allows roof windows to be fitted.

Utilising the Equinox system in these situations transforms existing conservatory roofs to provide a cosy all year-round living environment, minimise weather noise and enable an architectural interior finish to be created.

Equinox kits can be fitted on double hipped, gable, Edwardian, Victorian and P-shaped conservatory roofs.

A choice of standard tile colours includes Charcoal, Antique Red and Burnt Umber. The system is supplied with a full range of colour matched fascias, soffits and guttering to compliment the frame or tile colour choice.

Optional fully recycled polypropylene roof slates can be specified for the kits, to give a natural, authentic appearance to the finished tiled roof. These slates are also available to purchase separately from Eurocell branches in a choice of authentic slate grey or brick red colours, for maximum convenience.

Equinox is available to order from Eurocell branches in eight working days or less.

Alongside the Equinox tile roof system, Eurocell branches recently introduced a choice of market-leading rooflights, which increase the comfort of buildings and are fully compliant with Building Regulations Part L (Conservation of fuel and power). This followed the recent introduction of Lusso orangery-style conservatory roofs, enabling ambient environments to be created with subtle HD (High Definition) LED downlighting kits.

What’s more, Eurocell roof kits for 2013 are available in a wider choice of colours, including Grey on white, Black on white, Irish Oak, Chartwell Green and Cream.

“Alongside our quality traditional conservatory roof offer, these latest additions mean that Eurocell is innovating whilst others are stagnating,” said Ian Kernaghan, Product Manager at Eurocell. “Our new ranges give Eurocell customers access to easy-to-install products that are highly-desired by homeowners.”

With kits available from Eurocell branches, it means customers can minimise their own stockholding by collecting kits locally when they need them, or have them delivered direct to site free of charge, which can provide significant business efficiencies.

Eurocell branches offer a range of more than 4,000 quality building plastics products. With 125+ Eurocell Building Plastics branches nationally, the network has become an essential destination for high quality, excellent service and value for money with both trade and DIY customers.
