Moving the Goalposts – An Ultraframe design innovation

Our trusted roof supplier for glazed extensions, conservatories and orangeries, Ultraframe, has recently launched a new design development to create open, contemporary spaces.

The Goalpost design means that a ‘Grand Design’ is now much more achievable for every homeowner.

Wide open spaces

The Goalpost design offers the option of a glazed extension, conservatory or orangery that is not only at the cutting edge of contemporary design, it is structurally sound and will create an open living environment that flows seamlessly into the garden.

The Ultraframe Goalpost structure enables glazed extensions with large expanses which are open-sided – these can be clear openings in excess of 6.5 metres or, for larger scale projects, sliding doors in excess of 10 metres.

This type of space is not only wonderful for entertaining in the warmer months, it certainly has the wow factor.

Engineered strength and stability

When designing a glazed extension with large expanses of glass that open right up, careful consideration needs to be given to structural support, and in particular the stability of the roof.

Lateral stability is a key aspect of the overall structural strength. This counteracts side-to-side movement, which can occur in strong winds or during periods of heavy snowfall.

Ultraframe Goalposts are specifically engineered to provide the lateral stability needed to support large, open expanses.

Installation made simple

The Ultraframe Goalpost structure is made of engineered aluminium beams, which are light enough to be lifted into place without machinery – making them hassle free to install.

Goalposts are designed to work perfectly with the Ultraframe ‘Classic’ Glass Roof and ‘Livinroof’ as they sit behind the eaves beam for a subtle, inconspicuous look.

They can also be hidden from view in the internal pelmet system, or if left visible, they can be powder-coated in your choice of RAL colour for a more urban design.
