Case Study - Stratus, Norfolk
This Norfolk coastal property is a great example of a conservatory transformed by the Stratus fully thermally broken lantern roof system.
The original conservatory did not regulate temperature very well, being too hot to sit in during the summer and too cold in the winter, and it made the kitchen look small and dark.
These issues were overcome by knocking through the conservatory to create one large space extending from the kitchen.
Instead of replacing his conservatory with another traditional glazed extension, homeowner Keith has incorporated two large, three-way Stratus lantern roofs into a modern “box” extension at the rear of the property, along with two WarmCore aluminium folding sliding doors. This has created a spacious living area which is flooded by natural light throughout.
Stratus offers up to 65% more thermal efficiency due to the innovative fully thermally broken system when compared to alternative aluminium roof systems. It has been designed to be discreet with minimal sightlines to maximise light, making it an excellent choice of lantern roof for dark spaces in need of a quick and easy natural light solution. The three-way design can be made up to 3m x 6m in size making it a suitable alternative for large spaces like this 800 sq.ft space.
“We now have a multifunctional room we can use all year round for cooking, entertaining and relaxing. The two Stratus lantern roofs and WarmCore bi-fold doors have made a huge difference to the space which is now bright and gives us a great view of our garden all year around.”
