Glass roofs have become an increasingly popular choice for conservatories due to their beautiful aesthetic appeal, low maintenance, and durability compared to polycarbonate. Here at Turkington, we use an ‘A’ rated, blue tint, solar control, self-cleaning glass that is specifically designed for conservatory roofs.
With a U-value of 1.2 W/m2K it helps minimise heat loss in the winter months, whilst a typical G-value of 40% means that 60% of the sun’s heat is reflected back, helping to reduce heat build-up during the summer months.
The blue tint on the roof glass will let your conservatory will feel open and airy, yet benefit from anti-glare on sunny days. There is also an easy clean coating and warm edge technologies built into all our roof glass as standard.
✓ Solar Control - Helps reduce the build-up of heat in the summer months which offers more solar protection than standard glass. This makes your conservatory cooler in the summer.
✓ Warm Winter U-Value – This measures heat loss through the glass unit in the winter months. This low U-Value glass will help keep your conservatory warmer in winter.
✓ Easy Clean – This special coating is to prevent the build-up of dirt and grime and reduces the frequency of cleaning.
✓ Anti-Glare - Whilst the conservatory is the best room in the house to enjoy the sun and light of the summer, at the same time the glare from the sun can be an issue. Our Smart glass is designed to dramatically reduce the glare of the sun.
✓ Argon Filled Low E - filled with argon gas and a low emissive coating help to keep heat in on cooler days.
✓ Warm Edge Technology - Avoids heat loss at the edge of the unit, reducing internal condensation, especially at the glass edge. Warm edge spacer is typically up to 950 times less conductive than standard aluminium.
✓ Anti-Fade - Blocks out 98% of the harmful UV rays that cause damage to soft furnishings.
