We’re revolutionising conservatory & extension construction
Ultraframe and Cloch Double Glazing to launch a new extension building system with a solid wall that can be assembled as quickly as ten square meters in five minutes – without the need for brickies.
The system, named hup!, can be used with any Ultraframe roof – to form part of any home extension, orangery, or conservatory.
Hup! is said to be ‘five times more energy efficient than the average UK home’ and five times faster to build than conventional methods, needing only the skills of a conservatory fitting team and giving the installer/homeowner the choice of cladding, windows and doors and with its own design and pricing software.
Marketing director Alex Hewitt said: “The hup! system! uses highly energy efficient and BBA approved Ultrapanels in place of brick walls, and engineered Ultraframe roofing systems in place of timber and slate roofs, making it five times faster to build than traditional methods. Available in any roof shape on footprints with 90° corners, installers can combine hup! walls and claddings with a choice of five Ultraframe roofs to create a bespoke hup! extension or conservatory. With hup! there is far less mess and disruption than with traditional methods, meaning happy homeowners.
“The groundbreaking technology in Ultrapanels means that a hup! build is on average at least five times more energy efficient than the average UK home so hup! extensions are every bit as warm and thermally efficient as the rest of your home – if not warmer!”
She explained the thinking behind the system: “There are many challenges facing installers today: brick and skills shortages, more complex installations which increase site time, unpredictable weather, complex consumer demands, post-Covid demand, and of course, the changes to Building Regulations. We have put huge amounts of research into the hup! system to create a solution to these problems – and more.”
Along with the hup! wall system the new Vista and Flat Roof choices will be on display at along with other hup! compatible choices, Glass Roof, Ultraroof, and Livinroof.
Alex concluded: “With hup!, what would usually take months can be built in weeks. This is because hup! is fast and simple to build from the pre-manufactured kit. As the majority of the building work is done in a factory, this also means less mess and disruption for the homeowner.”
