Plastic roofs are not energy-efficient, so you end up paying more for your heating bills – for a room you’re less likely to use because it's uncomfortably cold.
By replacing your conservatory roof with insulating glass units consisting of solar control glass from the Pilkinton Activ™ range and low-emissivity Pilkington K Glass™, you can reduce your heating bills and create an inviting new space to your home that will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
With a plastic roof, a light shower can sound more like a hailstorm. But with a new glass roof, you might not even notice it's raining.
Don't let the rain put a dampener on you spending time in your conservatory. With a replacement glass roof from Pilkington, on an overcast day, this bright room can be one of the nicest places to relax in the house.
Pilkington Activ™ is the world's first self-cleaning glass. This clever glazing product has a unique dual action microscopic coating, making it ideal as a replacement conservatory glass.
The coating reacts with daylight to break down organic dirt. Then, when rainwater hits the glass it spreads evenly, running off in a sheet and taking the loosened dirt with it. It also dries quickly reducing streaks. All you need to do is give the glass an occasional hose during dry spells.
Solar control glass delivers greater comfort throughout the year. By using replacement conservatory glass units consisting of Pilkington Activ™ Blue or Pilkington Activ™ Neutral on the outer pane and Pilkington K Glass™ on the inner pane, you can keep your conservatory cooler when it’s warm outside and warmer when the weather’s cold.
