– Providing industry leading, lightweight solid orangery roofing & renovation. Transforming traditional orangeries with limited lifespan and usage into living spaces that can be used year-round and for far longer.

In this video we explain everything customers need to know about our industry-leading, lightweight orangery roof is designed and fitted.

For accessibility purposes, we have transcribed the audio below:

(0:09) – Leka systems specialise in providing innovative, truly lightweight conservatory roofing. Our orangery roofing is one of the most energy efficient alternatives in the market today.
(0:25) – Competitor orangery roofing weighs nearly double that of a Leka Systems one.
(0:33) – Here’s how the lightweight, Leka Systems Orangery Kit is constructed…
(0:42) – The underlying structure of a Leka Systems Orangery Kit is constructed from a glass reinforced plastic or ‘GRP’ frame.
(0:52) – Using glass reinforced plastic or ‘GRP’ allows for a structurally tested and lighter alternative to aluminium and timber.
(1:00) – GRP is not at risk of sweating, condensation of cold bridging unlike aluminium.
(1:08) – Nor is GRP open to wood worm, moisture absorption or potential rotting such as timber.
(1:19) – After a 15mm air gap, insulated Celotex sheets are layered on.
(1:30) – Next, light, strong and load bearing insulated outer sheers are added. Allowing for fewer roofing bars and might higher efficiency.
(1:45) – Your outer weatherproof covering is then applied by your installation company.
(1:58) – The glass lantern is then lowered onto the structure and fixed into place.
(2:10) – Guttering is now attached and fixed onto a UPVC fascia cappit to complete the waterproofing.
(2:21) – Finally, internal Leka sheers are added to be lightweight, waterproof and one third the weight of plasterboard.
(2:31) – The underside of the roof then has an elegant traditional skim plaster applied.
(2:37) – Low energy spotlights can be fitted for the best quality interior lighting.
(2:50) – The unique design, manufacturing process and product layers of the Leka Orangery are innovative and efficient.
(3:04) – The Leka System demonstrates an industry leading energy efficiency with a U Value of just 0.15.
(3:14) – Competitor products typically weigh up to 40% more than a Leka System.
(3:21) – Leka Systems. THE truly lightweight conservatory roofing systems.
