Glass roofs are great for letting more light into your home. With choices of clear, obscure or tinted glass, solar controlled heat reflective glass or self cleaning glass we can provide a wide range of options.
All options have a low emissivity coating on the inner pane to reduce the amount of heat loss through the roof, keeping the conservatory warmer in the winter. Anti Sun glass on the outer pane adds the benefit of reducing the amount of heat gain from the sun, keeping the conservatory cooler in the summer. Self cleaning glass has a coating on the outside that breaks down and loosens organic content such as dirt which is then washed away as it rains.
A summary of the three most popular options is listed belowL.
|Glass Type||Reduces Heat from Escaping||Reduces Heat from Entering||Self Cleaning*||Colour Options*|
