Plastic roofs are not energy efficient so you pay more on 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 Pilkington Activ™ range and thermally efficient low-e Pilkington K Glass™, you can reduce your heating bills and create an inviting space in your home that will be warmer in winter and cooler in 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.
Solar control glass delivers greater comfort throughout the year. By using replacement conservatory glass units consisting of PilkingtonActiv™ 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.
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.
