Leka Xi – Modular Conservatory Walls & Base
To complete the Leka suite of products, the Leka Xi can provide a warm, sustainable alternative to a traditional block/brick built conservatory base/wall.
Typically installed on concrete pads the Leka Xi saves time, mess and stress when considering a new build conservatory or single storey extension.
The GRP cladding skins come in a range of colours and offer a sustainable replication of either real brick work, stone or timber. We can even supply external boarding, immediately ready for a plasterer to render directly to.
Typically a conservatory, including the Leka Xi base/wall system, as well as a Leka roof, are installed in days……not weeks. No thermal bridging or moisture absorption due to our GRP lightweight, structurally sound frame work. Thermally efficient to building regulation standards.
Highly engineered, pre-fabricated modular sections, creating comfort that every part of the Xi has been factory tested before delivery. The Xi revolutionises the building market and provides homeowners with multiple benefits.

Below you will find a detailed system break down of the Leka Xi Modular Wall & Base. This provides lighter and better, conservatory base insulation. We will explain how the only roof system of its kind in the world can transform your existing Orangery or enhance your proposed new Orangery project.
Leka Xi Module Wall & Base Breakdown
Step 1 – Adjustable Feet
Subject to ground conditions on where the Leka Xi is to be located, typically the supporting feet can be installed upon basic concrete pads. This saves on extensive ground work having to be carried out in most cases.
With adjustable capability the Xi feet can cater for varied floor levels, ensuring an accurate/level finish when completed
Step 2 – Base System Installation
Once a sufficient membrane is laid to the covered ground area, the Leka Xi ‘pre-manufactured’ GRP base system is installed. This includes a floor perimeter beam as well as structurally advanced supporting joists that are complemented thermally with the use of PIR insulation sheets installed in-between them.
Step 3 – Modular Wall System
The benefits of the Xi wall system is its ability to be truly modular. Each and every wall can be requested at bespoke heights and widths to suit your desired living requirement. All pre-manufactured into simple lightweight sections for ease of installation.
Step 4 – Roof Installation
Once the modular Xi framework has been installed it is usual for an appropriate roof system to be installed.
Step 5 – Insulation
High grade EPS insulation is pre-cut to size and installed neatly between the thermally efficient GRP frame work.
Step 6 – Plasterboards & Flooring
Following any window/door installation, the internal energy efficient plasterboards are installed, along with high-grade weightrock flooring. This provides a finish ready for both plastering and preferred floor covering to be applied.
Step 7 – External Finish
Finally the desired external finish is applied. The Leka Xi is very diversified, offering a choice of:
- GRP brick/timber or even stone skin finishes – all quick to install and maintenance free
- or the unique external Leka board that allows a plasterer to apply a wet render coat directly too.
Customers can also apply their own finish if requested.
In most circumstances the Leka Xi (including any roof system) can be installed and completed in less than a week. No more heavy ground works, mess and weeks of build time.

We may be bias, but we honestly believe that a conservatory can be a great place for celebrating Christmas, whether that’s by setting up a table and inviting family members for Christmas lunch or by gathering round a tree to open your presents.
It’s still only November but excitement about Christmas is building, probably because Covid meant that last year, well, Christmas was a bit of a damp squid for a lot of people.
The last few years have been extraordinary for so many reasons, not least because of Brexit, Covid and climate change. Of course, we’ve all been affected by these massive events and in our world of conservatories, we’ve really noticed the effects of climate change recently. And if you’re having trouble with cracked, broken or damaged glass in your conservatory, it may be that you have too.
If you’re thinking of refurbishing your conservatory, one of the questions you may have are whether you can tile the roof and if so, whether it’s advisable to do so? So we thought it might be helpful to run through some of the main points to consider:
We often get asked why we use Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) products and what’s so special about them. So we thought it would be helpful to explain.
