Conservatory too HOT

In summer months a south facing Conservatory Roof will endure hours of direct sunlight making the Conservatory unbearably hot. The latest technology available in Conservatory Roof glazing options actually reduces the effects of direct sunlight and keeps the conservatory cooler in the summer and warmer in winter months without greatly effecting the light transmission. Heat can be reduced by the use of HEATGUARD Polycarbonate or of course a tinted bronze or Pilkington K active blue Glass can again reduce the build up of heat in a south facing conservatory.

Conservatory too COLD

Customers often tell us their Conservatory is too cold, even in the summer months. A lot of customers think this is solely due to the conservatory roof which is not the case. The Conservatory by design is usually mostly glass. Older Double glazed sealed units (also known as Insulating Glass Units I.G.U.) were made of standard toughened glass. The newer Double glazed windows incorporate a much more Energy Efficient Upvc Frame and the double glazed sealed units (I.G.U.) which is made from Planitherm Low e glass which actually reflects heat back into the room, the sealed units are Argon filled which greatly increases Energy Efficiency and aids in significant sound proofing

A Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof has definite cost advantages in comparison to a Glass Conservatory Roof. The Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof is available in a wide variety of colours such as clear, opal, bronze. Other colours are available according to your individual preference.

The Polycarbonate we use in our Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof systems is either 25 or 35mm HEAT GUARD Polycarbonate. This means your new Polycarbonate Conservatory Roof will keep your Conservatory cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The HEAT GUARD Polycarbonate is like air conditioning for the Conservatory and stops the Conservatory from baking in the summer. This means customers can also choose to have any furniture the wish in the conservatory without worrying about sun bleaching.

35mm Clear Polycarbonate – Normally chosen for roofs where you intend to have roof blinds fitted. Not recommended for south facing conservatories. Light transmission 50%

35mm Opal Polycarbonate – Helps to diffuse ultra violet rays and a popular choice but not particularly effective for south facing conservatories. Light transmission 20%

35mm Bronze Polycarbonate – A popular choice for wood grain conservatories but offers little protection against direct sunlight. There is also a Bronze/Opal option that provides Opal finish to the inside which provides improved performance. Light transmission 20%

35mm Heatguard Polycarbonate Also Known as solarguard (shown Below) – Especially recommended if you conservatory faces south, Heatguard has a reflective external coating which allows the light in but deflects solar radiation reducing solar heat gain through the roof by half when compared to other materials. Heatguard can also have an opal finish internally.
