Steel Bases for Conservatories - in association with
Your conservatory is really going to be stunning stunning when it's finished being built - no matter how lovely it is, you have to bring it back to basics. Nothing is more basic than the conservatory base itself.
Conservatory base foundations have to be solid, which is why installers dig a depth of 450mm for the base footings. Next is to create a mix for the conservatory base using concrete, hardcore, screed & a layer of damp proofing and if part of the design, a low wall as well.
EzeBase Conservatory Bases Provide a Simpler and Quicker Alternative
Steel conservatory bases get rid of all what we talked about, as well as any long wait for your concrete mix to set. Also the added advantages of being able to install a steel conservatory base when temperatures are low, or weather conditions are wet. So you can forget waiting around for the right weather!
As the system does not entail removing lawns or patios to make way for the conservatory, it also means cutting bills for skips or waste removal.
Steel Bases can also be the perfect solution when your conservatory location makes it harder to use other traditional methods.
How Does it Work?
Conservatory Steel Bases are designed to your conservatory specifications and delivered to your home in sections which have been pre-constructed for you.
The outer framework has been been bolted together using pre-welded bolds. Additional support and rigidiity of mitred corners is supplier by a brace - screw adjusters level out the conservatory base.
Concrete pads with spreader plates beneath, support the conservatory base framework. Their job is to disperse the load of each pad evenly. The added advantage of this is that the base is installed over an existing patio, leaving just the slabs beneath the pads to be removed.
Then, the framework is bolted to the house using rawl bolts. Steel floor joists which are located in the support brackets are welded onto both the front and rear sections. Then bolted in to place.
Fears of bounce being experienced by a supsended floor are put completely at ease by immediate supports inserterted between each pair of floor joists.
Any fear of the kind of bounce experienced with a suspended floor is eliminated by immediate supports inserted between each pair of floor joists. And no bounce means most types of floor coverings can be used, including ceramic tiles, of which the the correct adhesive is applied.
No bounce means that most types of floor covering can be used even ceramic tiles - providing the correct adhesive is applied.
Will the Conservatory Base be at the Right Level?
Virtually no restrictions exist when it coems to proposed floor levels, this means an accurate and level footing to the full height of the conservatory. The sill fits directly to the outer beam of the conservatory base.
An insulated floor finishes the steel conservatory base off.
There's a Manhole Cover Where I Want my Conservatory
Unlike conventional conservatory bases. Manhole covers present no problem to a steel frame base. They remain in situ and are accessed through a trap door and removable floor joists, built into the design - it’s that easy! No need to re-site the manhole or drains. Another great reason to get a an ezebase steel conservatory base!
Drainpipes can also be left untouched as there are no foundations to disturb them.
But I Really Wanted a Wall at the Base of the Conservatory
Want a low wall? Then have one!
One solution is to build a normal cavity wall, OR there is even a simpler solution!
A steel-base can include a strong galvanised frame with a profiled building board made to fit exactly. Clay brick tiles can be bonded to this to produce a lightweight wall which is also hardwearing.
You have a wall without having to employ a bricklayer.
Will there be lots of Cables on Display?
The insulation and flooring laid on top of the steel base has a hollow frame ideal for carrying cables and any plumbing that might be needed.
