Features & Benefits

Glazing Options:

6mm Toughened Glass is toughened during manufacturing and achieves Class 1 BS EN 12600 for impact performance.

UV Activated Self Cleaning Glass – These glass roof sheets have a UV activated special coating that is applied during manufacture that breaks down organic dirt which is then washed away by the rain. A minimum pitch of 10° is required for Self-Cleaning Glass.

High Light Transmittance:

The glass options offer high light transmittance and is almost indistinguishable from regular glass.

Victorian Upgrade:

The Simplicity 6 is available with the Victorian Upgrade. This enhances your structure with a decorative design, perfect for traditional buildings.

Integral Aluminium Guttering:

Creates a sleek, modern design that is stronger than external guttering systems and saves time on installation.

Low Profile:

The Simplicity 6 can be fitted in height-restricted areas due to our low required minimum pitch of 2.5 degrees (up to 3.2m Projection, beyond 3.2m changing to 5 degrees pitch).

Low Maintenance:

No need for repainting throughout the life of the veranda, a simple clean and removal of debris from the integral gutter is all that’s required.

Full 10 Year Guarantee:

The Simplicity 6 is supplied with a full 10-year guarantee and a 25-year life expectancy for the canopy frame.


Victorian Upgrade

The Simplicity 6 system has a range of fantastic customisable options in order for you to have a system that not only suits your needs aesthetically but also practically. With the ability to create a traditional appearance with Gallows brackets and Base castings our systems can be adapted to suit the look of older properties with the Victorian upgrade.

Glass Room Upgrade

You can get more use all year round from your system by upgrading to the Glass room. With sliding doors and fixed frames, you are more protected from the elements and with how the British are for us all, it allows use all year round.

LED Lighting, Heating and Sound

You can further enhance the use of your system with available upgrades for lighting, heating and even sound. Extended your stay under the Veranda in the evening by adding heating and lighting so that you can carry reading or relax outside until you see fit. Boost the ambience with our Relax Sound Outdoor Speakers with a subwoofer. With easy connection via Bluetooth, there are no messy cables hanging everywhere when wanting to play music.

Vertical Screens and Awnings

Optional Screens and Awnings can be added to your Glass Veranda to provide shade from the sun and privacy.
