The Equinox solid conservatory roof system excels most when it comes to installation time, with just a two day installation. This places it at the top along with the Livinroof and Ultraroof when it comes to speedy installations. It also uses large glass panels that make for a welcoming environment. However, U-value is another story. It leaves a lot to be desired, being the least energy efficient of the conservatory roofs we compare with just 0.18.

It’s also the heaviest conservatory roof that we compare too, at a whopping 67kg/m². That’s heavier than the Livinroof and Leka Warm roof combined!

Weight(kg/m²) 67
U-Value 0.15
Installation Time (days) 2
Minimum Pitch (deg) 10

Component Features

  • Tie Beam Free
    A tie beam is a horizontal bar or beam that ‘ties’ the roof together to keep it in the correct position and supports additional load from wind and snow.

    Solid roof systems that are based on conservatory technology will require a tie beam that is visible inside, but systems based on more traditional building principles have stronger beams and therefore never require a tie beam.
  • Internal Lighting Pelmet
    An internal plastered pelmet which runs around the perimeter where the top of the windows/doors meets the roof. It gives a more extension-like feel to a room and is a great place for spotlights and speakers.
  • Slimline Aluminium Cappings
    Vital to the overall aesthetics of your conservatory roof, most tiles have matching hip and ridge caps, but these can often be quite thick, if you’re after a slimmer, modern look, some systems have a coordinated slimline aluminium capping finish.

  • Thicker Matching Cappings
  • Lightweight Slate Effect Tiles
  • Lightweight Shingle Effect Tiles
  • Traditional Roof Tiles
  • No Cold Spots
    A cold spot is an area of the roof where there is a gap in the insulation, these areas will be colder and creates a greater risk of condensation forming which could lead to mould issues.
  • Fire Tested
    This means the roof has been fire tested as an assembled structure (conservatory). A full fire test evaluates how all the parts of the roof interact in a fire, rather than relying on a fire safety certificate of separate components.
  • Meets Building Regulations
    All solid conservatory roofs require Building Regulation approval because a certificate is required when your sell your home. If a roofing system is already pre-approved, the process is much easier, more certain and quicker.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the ventilation like in this tiled conservatory roof system?

Nobody likes a stuffy or damp conservatory, so ventilation is rather important. The Equinox solid conservatory roof system has gaps between its aluminium rafters to eliminate moisture and keep things as light and airy as they should be. That also allows the roof to breathe, reducing the risk of condensation building up.

How strong is the Equinox solid conservatory roof system?

The Equinox solid conservatory roof system is no pushover and doesn’t mind flexing its considerable muscles when it has to. It has upgraded boarding in the roof system sandwich (sadly not that kind of sandwich) that increases its overall strength eliminating any risk of the roof sagging.

Can I be sure the Equinox tiled conservatory roof system will suit my home?

It doesn’t matter how unique your home is there are enough customisation options so that the Equinox conservatory roof system will match your home.

Will my Equinox roofed conservatory still be too hot in summer and too cold in winter?

Also referred to as the Goldilocks problem, conservatories have a history of being prickly customers when it comes to finding the right temperature. Too often they are too good at replicating a fridge and sauna in winter and summer respectively. Well, thanks to great U-values that shouldn’t be the case any longer with Equinox.
