A verandah for all seasons

The British love affair with outdoor living continues with the growth in demand of the Verandah from Prefix Systems, which offers near all-year round opportunities to sit outside and from a trade perspective rapid installation times and a new revenue stream.

Verandah is a fully bespoke system it’s perfect as a straight lean to, splayed lean to or as an ‘L’ shaped solution. It’s an integrated development based on traditional aesthetics with post, column covers and brackets, along with a decorative casting to column base and colour coded glazing bars.

For homeowners not wanting the permanence of a conservatory and wishing to keep their existing patio area, Verandah is a perfect investment for any home and can also be adapted for walkways, or car ports, with a square post option and the alternative glazing of polycarbonate.

While marketed as a three-season outdoor living solution, with the adoption of readily available patio heaters, this can be extended to an all-year round opportunity to make best use of outside space. Added to Bi-folding doors from the house this blends indoor and outdoor seamlessly.

Chris Cooke, of Prefix Systems commented: ‘Each year sales have increased notably for Verandah as installers look to maximise their outdoor living space and as installers look at new products in which to entice homeowners. With a moderate ticket price, half day installation and a range of strong marketing materials, it’s the perfect product to promote, alongside our other product systems.’

To support the Verandah there’s an impressive sales brochure, along with technical and installation guides with fitting in as little as just a few hours. There’s also full technical and sales support from any of the four Prefix branches which service the entire UK.

Prefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent fabricator of conservatory roofs with a history that dates back to 1996. Run by Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, the leading Ultraframe fabricator operates from a head office in Clayton-Le-Moors, Lancashire and from two further manufacturing sites in Northamptonshire and Swansea.

Prefix is the only conservatory fabricator in the UK with a number of regional fabrication facilities which provides the necessary expertise for the local market and the added support that goes with it.

The company also has considerable expertise in portal frames and in the retro-fit market. There is an estimated replacement market of 3million conservatories and with their Retro-fix and Multibeam products developed with Window Widgets, Prefix is set to take a lead in addressing this important market sector.
