Glazed Roofs

Bespoke manufacture of traditional or contemporary design with the latest in solar control glass technology.

Glazed Roofs

The glass used in our conservatory roof glazing has a versatile solar control coating. It helps to prevent the build up of heat during hot summer months.

The solar control coating reflects much of the heat from the sun keeping the interior cooler and significantly reduces the amount of heat in the conservatory providing a more comfortable and useable living space. The coating is incorporated into our tinted roof glass which also provides solar control as they absorb more heat and radiate it back to the outside. Combining a tint with a coating to reflect even more heat will increase the overall cooling performance even further whilst absorbing some of the glare into the room. Our top performing roof glass reflects up to 80% of the suns heat.

Combining this solar control glass with our energy efficient inner pane provides unbeatable thermal insulation, reflecting heat back into the room and reducing heat loss more effectively than traditional low-emissivity glass products.

The result? You can have the best of both worlds, our doubled glazed units provide - solar control coating on the outer face to keep cooler in warmer summer months, and the thermal retention properties of the low ‘e’ coating on the inner pane to keep the room warm in the winter.

Advantages

       
  • Tint - uses its inherent colour to absorb heat & reduce glare
  •    
  • Coating - reflects heat back to the outside
  • Self Cleaning coating to minimise maintenance
  • Low ‘e’ Inner pane to keep heating bills under control

Conservatory Side Frames

Older plastic roof conservatories have a reputation of being too hot in the summer and being drafty and chilly in the winter months, but by specifying the correct conservatory frame and roof glass this can truly be a thing of the past.

Our performance glass combines our latest solar control roof glass products to create high performance conservatory roof glass with outstanding thermal efficiency. However, when purchasing a conservatory or conservatory roof replacement, many people choose solar control glass for the roof, but do not consider it for the sidewalls. In south or west facing conservatories in particular, the amount of heat build up can make the conservatory uncomfortable, even when solar control glazing has been used overhead.

Our range of conservatory specific side frame glass combines solar control and thermal insulating properties, to provide a comfortable year round environment, enabling the homeowner to get the most out of your conservatory or orangery whatever the weather.

This glass can save you money on energy bills too, providing a wise investment to any home. The thermal insulating properties mean it will use less energy to heat the conservatory to the desired temperature.

Keep cool in summer... and warm in winter.
