Elevating roof sales to new levels

Launched in December 2018, Liniar’s Elevate lantern-style roof took the industry by storm. The latest addition to the company’s prestigious range of windows, doors, conservatories and outdoor products, its launch of Elevate was planned as a two-phase launch with a traditionally shaped roof hitting the market first. The sophisticated, older sister of Liniar’s original lantern roof, Elevate features slim lines, unobstructed views and even a transom-free installation up to a certain size.

Liniar’s Business Development Director explains where the idea for this revolutionary roof began and what the response has been since bringing the company’s newest ‘kit-format’ product to market:

“There had always been a demand from our customers for a PVCu lantern roof which mimicked the sleek, slim profile of aluminium lantern roofs. Whilst the existing roof system had the ability to be manufactured as a lantern, Liniar wanted to satisfy customers’ demands for a new, slimmer product which not only looked like its aluminium counterpart but had the thermal efficiency of a PVCu glazed roof.

“Liniar’s Design and Development team came up with a design which delivered a beautiful finish – and which not only looked good, but also performed well. When we showed it to the world at the FIT Show, everyone was wowed, and we knew we had a winning design on our hands.”

Design

The unique elegantly designed Elevate lantern roof bridges the gap between traditional and modern, arriving in both rectangular and square shapes, with bespoke components for each. The cutting edge roof inspires the senses with a sleek transition of roof bars and ultra slim sightlines. The ideal choice for fabricators, fitters and self-builders, Elevate is simple to order and even easier to install.

Elevate arrives in kit format, making installations a breeze – because everything needed is included to get the job done. The roof’s modern, stunning construction is innovative and energy efficient, whilst providing wide expanses of glass and plenty of natural light.

Elevate and Elevate Squared both feature Liniar’s twin-walled top caps as standard, enhancing the products’ thermal efficiency whilst also providing a more robust fit and finish. Built to last and to withstand even the most inclement British weather, Elevate has all of Liniar’s patented roof features including Glazing Stop and Weather Dam, to avoid glass slippage during glazing and to hold back the wind and rain respectively.

Well-known for its perfectly matched range, Liniar’s Elevate roof is no different.

“Elevate arrives in 36 colour combinations with white substrate and woodgrain foil options from stock, delivered in just five working days. For fitters who’ve got the ability to wait for longer lead times, more special colours are also available for the ultimate personalisation. Each foiled kit arrives perfectly finished, including the top and end caps for a smooth, seamless appearance.”

Both versions of the Elevate lantern roof come in sizes to suit any flat roof extension or orangery. The traditional, rectangular shape is available up to 2.4 x 5.4 metres and the square version is available up to 2.1m². Property owners can choose additional extras such as self-cleaning glass, solar glass and roof vents for extra ventilation. With the 10-year Liniar guarantee coming as standard on both models, families can rest assure that they’re in good hands.

Installer Feedback

One of the first installations was done by a popular trade counter / fitter based in Stoke-on-Trent. Horton Building Plastics gave Liniar its first impression of the Elevate lantern-style roof, having installed one of the first in its own showroom ready for the firm’s open day.

Managing Director Rob Horton commented, “The Elevate roof went up faster than I thought possible. The expanses of glass open up the view and it’ll be easy for everyone to install – no matter the weather. I can see Liniar is going to be very busy with this roof.”

Customer Feedback

Homeowners have been enchanted by the sleek transition of roof bars, the thermal efficiency and the sophisticated appearance of the Elevate roof. One homeowner in the Derbyshire Dales, who’d been a long-time Liniar customer, had his original Liniar lantern roofs replaced with two traditionally-shaped Elevate roofs in March. He had this to say, “We love them – and in fact, we’ve had to turn down the heating! We didn’t realise how much more thermally efficient the Elevate lantern roof is compared to the older version. Plus, there is just so much more light in the rooms!”
