They are designed to reduce the glare are available in a wide selection of colours to go well with your conservatory roof. They usually come in a 25mm thickness but to reduce thermal loss, they can be upgraded to a 35mm thickness. Our range of polycarbonate roofs are multi cambered which means a quieter room if it rains than the old polycarbonate roofs that were available years ago. Both 25mm and 35 mm polycarbonate roofs come in a range of colours these include, opal which is a milk bottle white.

Performance glass roofs

Performanced glass roofs have come on no end in the last five years. The revolution was started with a metallic coating on the inside of the double glazed glass units, people remember this glass usually by its trade name and tend to ask for Pilkington K glass. The low emission glass market then expanded and now one of the market leaders is a company called Saint Gobain and they have a market leading range of products called planithern. In a basic form planithern’s thermal properties (it’s U value) is better at retaining heat in your conservatory. In situations where you have decided to knock a kitchen or other room into the conservatory without dividing doors, you must to comply with building regs fit low emission glass and we would recommend you add argon gas to the inside of the double glazed glass units to further increase their glass unit thermal properties. However another option is to upgrade the conservatory walls and doors glass to the best performing brand on the market called Celsius clear and Celsius one for the roof.
