Glass manufacturers have been striving to make their product more and more efficient for many years. The UV and insulation value of the glass you choose for your conservatory can make a big difference on cold winter days. A performance glass will ensure that the heat is retained within the conservatory meaning lower energy bills and a higher change that your conservatory can be used all year round.

There are many different types of glass for conservatory roofs all offering various different standards on heat reflection and retention. We offer Pilkington, Celsius and K2 glass products which all have an optional upgrade called Warm Edge. What is warm edge? Warm edge is used as an alternative to conventional aluminium spacers which are used to join the two pieces of glass in a double glazed unit. Using a warm edge low heat conductive material around the edge of a double glazed unit helps prevent the heat you have in your conservatory from conducting out via the perimeter of the glazed unit.
