Each of our orangeries has been built and tested to ensure lasting quality and will add a touch of essential style to your home.
Orangeries and Conservatories: Understanding the Difference
Should you investigate orangeries or conservatories when planning your home improvement project? Traditionally, orangeries feature more masonry and brick pillars, which are crowned by an atrium roof. Conservatories, on the other hand, are built using a high glass-to-brick ratio, resulting in space that is more open.
The line that once separated orangeries from conservatories has blurred in recent years. An orangery can be built using more glass; similarly, a conservatory can feature extensive masonry. This gives homeowners more flexibility when looking for the most practical and cost-efficient way to create the space they need.
Orangeries and conservatories are interchangeable terms. When you contact A1 Glass and Glazing, you’ll be assured of a personal level of service. From the minute you contact us, we’ll concentrate on what’s important – designing an orangery room that looks and performs the way that you expected it to.
Orangeries Built Your Way
A world of possibilities will be open to you when you choose A1 Glass and Glazing to install your new orangery. With such an extensive portfolio of double glazing products available, we’ll work with you to build a new space that’s both stunning and practical. Choose from our wide-spanning portfolio of glass, accessories, RAL colours and woodgrain foils to create an orangery that will suit the architectural style and layout of your home.
Orangery Styles for Any Home
Orangeries can be installed in a range of different styles and shapes. A lean-to orangery is perfect for one-storey properties with limited space – especially as its 25° pitched roof can fit neatly under the eaves. T- or P-shaped orangeries are perfect for homes with plentiful amounts of garden space, and their two sections can work independently, or as related rooms with a joint function – for example, a dining area that flows into a lounge space.
Your new room space can be built according to a contemporary or modern specification. Our orangeries can feature floor-to-ceiling glass and bi-fold doors that open almost fully, resulting in a room space that feels constantly connected to the outside. To achieve a more traditional design, brick pier columns can be used interchangeably throughout the design, while French doors can be used in place of bi-folds to limit light penetration.
Comfort and Security, Guaranteed
Orangeries act as a buffer space between your home and the outside world. Would-be intruders seeking access will need to bypass an additional set of security systems. Because our double-glazing features market-leading hinges and locks, most attempts to gain entry to your property will be prevented.
Your new orangery room will be warm and comfortable throughout the year, thanks to the thermally efficient glazing used throughout its design. During winter, your doors and windows will stop heat from escaping; at all other times, your double glazing will prevent your structure from becoming uncomfortably hot.
Our orangeries won’t just make your home safer and warmer; they will add market-value to your home as well. When the time comes to sell your property, prospective buyers will be attracted to the extra space you’ve created and your orangery’s stylish appearance.
