When it was launched in 2011 K2’s Capella fulfilled the simple promise of providing a single integrated internal bracket and aluminium gutter. Since then it has become a firm favourite and is now installed in hundreds of conservatories throughout the UK. Now K2 designers have evolved Capella to provide a number of internal and external options, whilst maintaining the inherent simplicity for which it became so popular.
Internal options now include single and double bracket PVC-U soffits, which offer a highly cost-efficient solution to giving a conservatory an authentic orangery look. In addition to superb aesthetics the option also provides homeowners with the ability to install low-voltage downlighters for a sophisticated and stylish finish.
Following popular demand a fully plasterboarded version is also available as standard in 300mm and 600mm depth. Installers who have been nudging K2 for this option will, says the company, find it a very worthwhile addition.
Externally Capella installers now enjoy three options: the standard K2 PVC-u gutter; the Capella aluminium gutter which is an integral, high fronted gutter; and shortly as a direct result of the union between Synseal and K2 the three part aluminium fascia as used on Synseal’s Global Summer will be made available to K2 customers.
Overall, the key benefits of the Capella over competitive solutions are:
· A completely modular system allowing you to offer your customers a full range of options, making the Capella totally customizable
· The glass roof screening solution uses an optional pre-fitted solar film; this makes both the installation simpler and the finished product very aesthetically pleasing.
· The plastered soffit is fitted onto a very easy to install set of brackets, making it a very enviable solution for all installers.
· With standard depth of 300mm and 600mm the plastered soffit will allow you to fulfill most budget orangery requirements and ensure the homeowners gets the wow factor.
Specially adapted to be fitted to the K2 eaves beam the Synseal Global Summer decorative orangery fascia conceals guttering and provides external cornice detailing. It is one of the key features of the Global Summer that allows an effective Orangery-Style conservatory to be created simply and competitively. And soon these benefits will be available to K2 customers without switching.
Anne-Marie Busch, Marketing Manager for K2 said the benefits of the union between Synseal and K2 are now becoming very tangible: “Capella embodies the K2 philosophy in producing simple yet highly effective solutions that are driven by our customers, something that Synseal has bought into; Synseal also has a reputation as an innovative and progressive supplier of conservatory roofs and components with the addition of superb facilities and sheer size.
“These relatively small but important developments with Capella are the first of what is becoming a very productive relationship between the two brands.”
