Saint Gobain Glass For Conservatories

Purchasing a conservatory is a major decision, which depending upon the size, quality and design can be a significant investment. Other key considerations are, of course, style, appearance and comfort though it’s here where the glass you choose makes all the difference. You want your conservatory to look good and to suit your needs.

Nowadays the potential uses of a conservatory are as diverse as the designs available. Some are looking to add extra living space that can be used year round as a dining room, children’s playroom, home office or similar, while others are looking to create a seamless, visually connected link between home and garden.

Our conservatory roof glass range offers you a choice of four attractive tints all with low maintenance self-cleaning.

Each glass tint offers its own combination of solar control and glare reduction properties as well as an individual character to suit your own.

Specify SGG PLANITHERM 4S conservatory wall glass with any of our roof options to obtain the ultimate combination of a cooler summer environment and warm, cozy winter months.

How Self Cleaning Glass works

SGG BIOCLEAN Low Maintenance Self-Cleaning Coating

Spend more time relaxing and enjoying the view, rather than cleaning the windows!

A revolutionary self-cleaning coating is applied to our glass as part of the manufacturing process, which means that it is fused to the surface of the glass and therefore lasts the lifetime of the pane.

The SGG BIOCLEAN coating uses both rain and natural light from the sun to efficiently combat the dirt and grime that accumulates on the outside of the window. By significantly reducing the need for manual cleaning it provides the ideal solution for keeping those hard or dangerous to reach areas clean, leaving you with more time to relax and enjoy your conservatory.

How does it do that?

There are two processes at work in our self-cleaning glass.

Firstly, the special coating harnesses natural daylight which triggers the breakdown of the dirt and grime on the outer surface of the glass.

Secondly, when rainwater hits the glass, rather than forming droplets it flattens and spreads out across the surface of the glass helping to wash away the loosened dirt and grime. This sheeting effect also minimises spots and streaks by helping the glass to dry more quickly and evenly.

Bioclean Self Cleaning Glass

Advantages:

  • A permanent self-cleaning coating that lasts the lifetime of the window
  • Perfect for your conservatory roof and other hard to reach areas that are difficult to clean
  • Glass stays cleaner for longer
  • Less dirt and grime adheres to the glass so any cleaning is quick and easy
  • Ongoing cost savings with reduced window cleaning bills
  • Kinder to the environment with a less frequent use of water and detergents
  • Clear view outside even when it’s raining thanks to the sheeting effect
  • Available in a choice of four tint options: natura, solara, azura and aqua to match your precise specification requirements

Solar Control Glass

High Performance Solar Control Coating

Helping to keep your interiors cooler – maximising the use of your conservatory.

The glass used in our conservatory roof glazing has a versatile solar control coating. It helps to prevent the build up of heat during hot summer months.

The solar control coating reflects the heat from the sun back to the outside of the conservatory keeping the interior cooler in the summer months, and significantly reduces the amount of heat that is able to pass into your conservatory providing you with a more comfortable and useable living space.

The coating is incorporated into our Natura and Aqua roof glass solutions for maximum solar control and is combined with SGG PLANITHERM 4S glass for maximum thermal insulation. The coloured tints on our roof glass also provide solar control as they absorb more heat and radiate it back to the outside. Combining a tint with a coating to reflect even more heat will increase the overall cooling performance even further.

The result? You can have the best of both worlds – solar control coating to keep cooler in warmer summer months, and the thermal retention properties of SGG PLANITHERM 4S in the winter.

Planitherm 4s

A new concept for year-round comfort, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer

Keep cool in summer?

The SGG PLANITHERM 4S glass is combined with our solar control roof glass products to create high performance conservatory roof glass with outstanding thermal efficiency.

However, when purchasing a conservatory, many people choose solar control glass for the roof, but do not consider it for the sidewalls. In south or west facing conservatories in particular, the amount of heat build up can make the conservatory uncomfortable, even when solar control glazing has been used overhead.

When used alone in conservatory side walls, SGG PLANITHERM 4S:

  • Provides excellent levels of solar protection for conservatory side walls, reducing unwanted heat by more than 57%
  • Has an attractive neutral appearance giving you a clear view of your surroundings

Keep warm in winter?

SGG PLANITHERM 4S conservatory wall glass:

  • Provides unbeatable thermal insulation, reflecting heat back into the room and reducing heat loss more effectively than traditional low-emissivity glass products
  • 63% less heat loss compared to ordinary double-glazing
  • Has market leading thermal efficiency (a U-value of 1.0W/m2K), far exceeding all current available products
  • Increases energy efficiency by retaining more heat in the room
  • Reduces your heating bills
  • Reduces the environmental impact of excess energy production
  • Maximises the amount of natural daylight coming into your home, especially important during the darker winter months
  • Reduces cold spots and draughts
  • Virtually eliminates internal condensation
