Built to last
All Prior Conservatories roofs are approved by the Government sponsored test
agency, the British board of Agrement (BBA) to last at least 25 years. Imagine
what implications the weather imposes upon your conservatory roof. Over an
average of 25 years it could include having to withstand:
15,300mm of rainfall
450 days with snow falling
- 67 days of hail the size of peas
9,125 days with temperatures on the range of: - -15°C in winter to +35°C in
- 300 Visits by window cleaners, house painters and aerial riggers
Now you can see why the roof needs to be tough.
Every Prior Conservatories roof is designed and manufactured in complete
accordance with all relevant British Standards and Codes of Practice.
