A truly lightweight tiled conservatory roofing system (no smoke screens). We do not brand the new LEKA System as a lightweight roofing system without having the facts to back it up, whilst other products/materials actually weigh nearly double that of a traditional glass conservatory roof.
No outer plywood needed
Removing the usual need for an outer plywood material which again is open to deterioration over a period of time and replacing with the new LEKA structural, 100% weatherproof, lightweight and insulated boarding system reduces the overall weight of the roofing system and improves the overall U values of the finished product.
Using either a Metrotile lightweight sheet for your outer finish of your new sunroom or a Tapco slate alternative you can rest assured that the product provides a better lifespan to a heavy alternative tile and is lighter than that of concrete or traditional slate.
AND COMES WITH A 40 YEAR WARRANTY.
More innovation – less complexity
With innovative products throughout and combining insulated sheets with Celotex insulation the LEKA system has less elements to install onsite which speeds up your installation timings with average installation only taking 2-3 days including removal of your old conservatory roof.
Glass reinforced plastic
Using GRP or glass reinforced plastic allows a structurally tested, lighter alternative to aluminium and timber when providing the main structural roof rafters. GRP is not at risk of sweating /condensation or cold bridging like aluminium. Nor is GRP open to wood worm, moisture absorption or potential rotting such as timber. The Leka System Structural profiles are manufactured and comply with BS EN13706.
Leka insulated board
With our own Leka insulated finishing board replacing the need for plasterboard as the internal finish prior to plastering, this new innovative board is a third the weight of a plasterboard and insulated at the same time.
Within 30-40kg of a traditional glass roof
Average Leka system roofs weigh within 30-40kg of a traditional glass conservatory roof which allows (in most cases) your existing conservatory frames to take the weight of your new Leka roofing system.
Improved energy efficiency
Having a load bearing structural insulated and weatherproof outer sheet allows the use of less roofing bars and so our roof bars can be spaced further apart which reduces weight and also improves energy efficiency levels.
