The Simple Solution for Conservatory Bases

What is Durabase? The Durabase System is a proven solution for conservatory bases – no mess, no hassle and only taking a fraction of the time to install - are just a few of its benefits. The Durabase System comprises of a bespoke steel base and modular wall, made to your exact specifications, thus ensuring it is a perfect fit for your conservatory – every time!

Why Durabase? Durabase alleviates much of the hard work and most of the problems associated with the old style conservatory base construction, but still provides a safe, strong and firm foundation for your conservatory. Durabase arrives in kit form and is suitable for both professional and DIY construction. The only foundations required are a number of concrete pads placed at strategic points around the base. This means far less excavation work and waste material to dispose of compared to other methods of base construction. The Durabase System is also very quick to install. An average base and wall can be installed in less than two days!

Brick Finish

Durabase modular walls are faced with real brick tiles and mortar. We have a wide range of finishes that will help match your existing house brick.

No need to move manhole or drains

Manholes need not present an expensive obstruction. The base will naturally span the drain and access can be gained via a trap-door and removable floor joist, built in during fabrication.
