Hambleside Danelaw’s Zenon Pro helps new Harley Davidson dealership break out into Wales and beyond

  • 8 Jan 2020

Davis Roofing’s strategic choice of Hambleside Danelaw rooflights has allowed the Cardiff-based Harley Davidson motorcycle dealership to achieve a modern and bright showroom for the prestige marque.

Davis Roofing was contracted by Trident BC to refurbish a number of units at Glynstell Park to provide modern high specification industrial buildings for new occupants.

As part of the project, enhanced energy efficiency via a combination of greater use of natural light and upgraded thermal performance were key criteria. Zenon GRP rooflights manufactured by Hambleside Danelaw were therefore chosen to meet the specification.

Joe Robbens, commercial manager at Davis Roofing, commented: “The service we receive, and quality of product, from Hambleside Danelaw means we have a good relationship. Wherever possible, we specify Zenon rooflights on our projects.”

In the Cardiff project, one of the units has been converted into a 560 square metres (6000 square feet) motorcycle showroom, split over two levels, with a state of the art workshop behind the sales area.

Bringing the units up to current building regulations, Davis Roofing over-clad the outer roof skin with new Omnis Exteriors 32/167/1000 profile sheeting.

Replacement of the original (25+ years old) rooflights was achieved by site-assembled Zenon rooflights. Zenon Pro formed to mirror the Omnis profile created the outer layer, with a 4mm twin wall polycarbonate providing insulation between the Zenon Pro liner to the existing PMFR35 profile of the roof’s original skin.

The new rooflights have contributed towards an enhanced thermal performance of the building envelope and reduced running costs: the Zenon site assembled rooflights as specified deliver light transmission of 53%, and a U value of just 1.7W/m2K.
