The Beauty of Glass Rooms

Glass rooms can quite literally bring light into your life. Whether you are looking into adding a conservatory or a sun room to your home, they encourage sun into the house and can make for enjoyable leisure time as you bask in a bright vibrant space.

The Beauty of Glass Rooms

The particular lure of a glass room is that it offers an outdoor feeling with the luxury of the controlled climate of the indoors. But there are two main problems with glass rooms:

  • The glass can require a lot of maintenance in terms of keeping it clean. A room with glass as its feature relies on impeccably clean glass to truly bring out its beauty and charm.
  • They can get too hot or too cold. The more glass you have the less controllable the temperature. You may end up spending far too much money and energy just trying to keep your glass room at a comfortable temperature.

Pilkington has developed a range of glass, Pilkington Activ, as a solution to these concerns.

The Pilkington Activ™ Range

Pilkington Activ™ Clear is a self-cleaning glass that uses the natural elements to keep itself clean. The rays of the sun break down dirt and then rainwater washes it away in a way that leaves the glass virtually streak-free.
Pilkington has also developed two self-cleaning glass products that also have solar control properties:

Pilkington Activ™ Blue and Neutral are types of self-cleaning glass that also sports solar control properties which helps to reduce heat build up in conservatories. If you wish to make the most of your glass room all year round you can also combine Pilkington Activ™ Blue or Neutral with Pilkington K Glass or Pilkington Optitherm™ SN for optimal thermal performance.
