Sliders UK has announced the launch of a new aluminium lantern roof system alongside its extensive range of aluminium and PVC-U bi-folding, inline sliding and composite doors.

Capable of spanning openings of up to 5.8m long by 4m wide, the Ultimate Rooflite by Sliders UK, has been designed to offer installers a highly flexible but also competitive product.

Steve Mines, Sales and Marketing Director, Sliders UK, said the Ultimate Rooflite offered installers huge flexibility

Steve Mines, Sales Director, said: “We manufacture two aluminium bi-fold door systems, which nine times out of ten go into orangery-type installations.
“Starting manufacture of what is a highly competitive lantern roof, alongside our established door offer was the logical step.
“We have the manufacturing capability, the expertise in aluminum and the distribution network. It means we can deliver roof lights and doors direct to site as a single source supplier and against a single order.”
Mines continued: “It’s a very accomplished and stable roof, making installation straight forward. In common with the rest of our product range, we also offer on-site support including an assisted fit on first-time installations.”
The Ultimate Rooflite by Sliders UK is based on the tried and tested BBA approved Ultraframe Classic roofing system and is suitable for installation as either part of a new build orangery or retro-fitted to a flat-roof.

Thermally broken and suitable for installation on as part of new builds or retro-fit to flat roofs, the Ultimate Rooflite is a highly flexible offer

With a thermally broken aluminium ridge and glazing bar system, the Ultimate Rooflite achieves typical U-values of 1.4W/m2K. Glazing options include self-cleaning, solar control in blue or neutral tints.
Color and finish options include standard white PVC-U or powder coated aluminium options in white, anthracite grey or satin black.
The easy-to-install system has also been designed to be self-draining with an overhang on each side which means there is no need to install a gutter.
“It gives us a very comprehensive but also flexible offer, which sold alongside our established bi-fold and patio door ranges, delivers some potentially very high margin opportunities to installers.”
Sliders UK’s wider product range already includes established aluminium bi-fold product offers from ALUK and the Ultimate Evolution, which features a highly innovative fully adjustable jamb option.
This makes it far simpler to align the door, even where apertures are out of square –  cutting installation times to as little as 45 minutes.
It also supplies two Part Q approved PVC-U bi-folds from Duraflex, the Aspect from Eurocell and inline sliding patio doors from Kömmerling and Duraflex.
