Britannia Conservatory System
The classical English glasshouse was
created by early pioneers returning with exotic plants
from far away lands and needed somewhere to nurture
their discoveries. Over the centuries the glasshouse
has evolved into what is now known as the traditional
Today the Conservatory has become
the way to add a unique type of space to your home:
modern space that is light & airy, classical and
elegant, a space that blurs the margin between home
Whatever your lifestyle, a conservatory fulfills and
enhances a multitude of living options from entertaining
to solitary bliss. Family room, dining room, home office
or den, a conservatory can be all of these and more.
There really is something for everyone.
Working together with you and understanding
your dream, we can design and build a conservatory to
compliment the architectural style of your home, all
within budget and on time.
Our conservatories are constructed
of high strength aluminum and vinyl meaning minimal
to no maintenance is required. No rot, rust, fading
or touch-ups!! To top it off our conservatory roofs
are decoratively capped for a complete, polished look.
The Britannia Conservatory System
The wall system integrates latest technology vinyl windows,
coupled with structural aluminum stiffeners. All structural
aluminum is clad with vinyl snap fit caps to alleviate
condensation, and give that 'warm to the touch' feel.
The wall sits on a low profile sill/drip system specifically
designed to suit our North American made window system.
We recommend every other window in your conservatory
to open. This allows generated heat to move above head
height and circulate through or across the room.
All wall glass incorporates Solarban 60 Low E double
glazed units, filled with Argon gas. Low E glass has
a special coating which means that heat is better retained.
The Solarban 60 reflects the solar radiation build up,
ensuring that summer days are comfortable in your conservatory.
The Conservatory roof system is a highly engineered
structural aluminum system, incorporating thermally
broken technology, to give the same thermal performance
as the walls. The decorative glazing bars and trusses
are spaced at a maximum width of 32" centers.
The roof glass used by Britannia is
the highest technology available. Specifically designed
for use in extreme climates as overhead glazing our
roof glass can be summarized in the following way. Warmer
in winter, cooler in summer, comfortable abundant light
and fade protection are the key benefits to our roof
glass. Azuria trademark sign is like no other residential
glass product available today, from its beautiful aquamarine
appearance to its unsurpassed solar performance. Azuria
tinted glass provides Britannia Conservatories with
a desirable low shading coefficient and high visible
light transmittance, a unique combination unmatched
by any other glass products. One of our advisors will
provide you with more technical details during the design
Another glazing material used to compliment
our conservatory system is Opal Heat guard, imported
exclusively by our extrusion suppliers in Europe. A
'Heat Guard' option utilizes a specially developed pigment
to significantly reduce heat build up through the roof.
Heat Guard deflects a much higher proportion of infra-red
radiation than other glazing options, reducing solar
hear gain through the roof by up to 50% compared to
other material. Heat guard opal also reduces solar heat
gain by up to 50%, the silvery gray color is combined
with an internal opal surface which creates a white
finish and a soft light quality.
Structural aluminum used in our conservatory is of heavy
duty 6063T5, 6069T5 extruded aluminum, professionally
engineered to meet or exceed static loads and building
All fasteners are stainless steel,
providing a rust free fixing for your conservatory system.
