Prefix Systems is the UK’s largest independent fabricator of conservatory roofs with a history that dates back to 1996. Run by Chris Baron and Chris Cooke, the leading Ultraframe fabricator operates from a head office in Blackburn, Lancashire and from two further manufacturing sites in Northamptonshire and Swansea. The company has also just won a hat-trick of Red Rose business awards, an unprecedented achievement in these prestigious awards.

Prefix was arguably the first fabricator in the UK to provide a wide range of laminated colours for conservatory roofs that now extends to 9 and were one of the first roof fabricators to promote performance glass in conservatory roofs. Yet, they are now pioneering the extended living space market with their tiled GardenRoom and UrbanRoom roof solutions.

The market for conservatories is now moving towards one for extended living space and Prefix are helping to shape it’s future direction. The GardenRoom roof has been a revelation, it’s the most structurally sound and configurable in the sector for tiled conservatories, ideal for both replacement and new fit projects. It is also backed up with both on site and in-house technical support, including all aspects of training.

To support the new shape of the market for extended living, Prefix Systems have just launched A New Room at which is designed to promote a wide range of products to consumers and to provide pre-qualified leads to their customer base. While now 2 years old, Refurbish My Conservatory ( has been set up as the true expert in the replacement sector with statistics estimating 3 million conservatories now installed in the UK, with around 500,000 in need of urgent upgrade or replacement. The company was the first to launch conservatory replacement specific products which includes the Retrofix post and this remains the only product currently on the market to cater for heavier roofs such as glass or tiled roof replacements.

Collectively, their product innovation and commitment to tangible consumer facing brands is helping to set them part from their peers in the market place. Prefix is very much the future for the sector, as conservatory installers evolve into extended living space specialists and rely on their ability as manufacturers to provide the most exacting levels of customer support.
