Transform Your Conservatory with a New Glass Conservatory Roof

20 Nov 2014
A conservatory is much more than just an extension, it’s a light, airy space that opens up the home, providing an area to relax and entertain.

Tired and poorly insulated conservatories can leave homeowners with a redundant space that can only be used during warmer times of the year.


To revitalise these spaces there’s no need to replace the entire conservatory, if your conservatory has a polycarbonate roof, simply upgrade its old plastic roof with Pilkington Activ™ Self-cleaning glass.

An instant transformation, which takes just one day to install. You will also benefit from a whole host of features that include: increased energy-efficiency, improved noise insulation and greater solar control for comfort all year round.



Opting for a conservatory roof replacement will also leave homeowners with a bright welcoming room that can be used all year round – really bringing the outside inside.

Pilkington Activ™ is the world's first true self-cleaning glass product, featuring a unique dual-action coating that works in two ways. Firstly, the glass uses UV rays to break down and loosen organic dirt, and the hydrophilic coating then uses rain to help wash away the dirt, leaving clearer, cleaner glass without anystreaks

Available with a range of solar control options, Pilkington Activ™ is ideal for use in conservatories and orangeries, helping to create an easy to maintain space.
