Court of Appeal dismisses conservatory makers claim that Ultraframe infringed intellectual property rights.

The Court of Appeal has dismissed multi-million pound claims made against Ultraframe by fellow conservatory manufacturer Burnden.

Burnden alledged that Ultraframe, an Ultraframe director and Ultraframe subsidiaries Northstar and Seaquest infringed Burnden’s intellectual property rights.

As a result of the Court of Appeal’s decision Burnden will receive no damages and is expected to be ordered to pay Ultraframe's costs.

The decision follows Ultraframe’s victory in a patent case against PVCu manufacturer Eurocell. The Court of Appeal found that Eurocell had infringed Ultraframe’s patent rights and design rights for its Ultralite 500 roofing technology.
