All of our glass conservatory roofs are manufactured from Toughened safety glass.
Glass roofs, although a little more expensive are quieter when it rains than the traditional polycarbonate roofing system.
Glass allows maximum light to enter your property although is comes in a wide range of insulating and solar contol options.
Pilkington Low-e (EnergiKare):
Pilkington K Glass has been established for more than 15 years making it the trusted solution for meeting Building Regulations concerning energy efficiency.
Pilkington K Glass usually forms the inner pane of an Insulating Glass Unit.
The coating reflects heat back into the room whilst also letting in free heat from the sun known as passive solar gain
Pilkington Activ self cleaning:
The unique dual-action of the Pilkington Activ coating uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from organic dirt, giving you not only the practical benefit of less cleaning, but also clearer, better-looking windows.
Pilkington Activ Self-Cleaning Glass can be used in your conservatory frames and is ideally suited to glass conservatory roofs where cleaning is more difficult.
There's also the option of Pilkington Activ Blue which has all the benefits of self-cleaning with additional solar control performance
Pilkington Activ blue, self cleaning, solar control:
This attractive blue glass combines dual-action, self-cleaning properties with solar control performance for a cooler internal environment.
Specially designed for the optimum roof unit, Pilkington Activ Blue is a revolutionary new glass that is perfect for use in conservatories.
It uses daylight and rainwater to breakdown and wash away organic dirt from exterior surfaces, making it ideal for hard to reach places that are difficult to clean.
Its unique blue colour also helps keep internal temperatures cool whilst still maintaining excellent light transmittance.
We use 32mm multiple walled polycarbonate roofs as standard (as opposed to thinner 25mm).
32mm polycarbonate offers superb strength and insulation properties and is available in a wide range of options to help you get the most out of your conservatory.
Designed to let maximum light and solar gain to enter your new conservatory, clear polycarbonate is great for darker conservatory locations that aren't exposed to direct sunlight.
Opal (white) polycarbonate:
Milky in colour, opal polycarbonate offeres great light transmission although is designed to filter out a proportion of solar gain to stop your conservatory from heating up too much. This option is great for conservatories that get a fait amount of direct sunlight throughout the day.
Bronze in colour, this polycarbonate is designed to reduce solar gain and prevent your conservatory from being like a 'greenhouse' in the summer months. Although bronze in colour, light transmission is still very good.
Heatguard polycarbonate is designed to reduce solar gain (keeping your conseravtory cool in the summer months) and is used in south facing conservatories. Although darker in colour externally, it's opal internal face still provides a light and airy feel.
There are many different conservatory roof options depending upon your conservatory position, and what your proposed use is going to be. For all PVCu conservatories we use Ultraframe roofs. Ultraframe conservatory roofs are tried and tested and were the 1st, BBA approved conservtory roof manufacturer.
