Whatever your project, if you are building a new conservatory or extension to your home, perhaps looking to renovate your existing conservatory roofing system by replacing a polycarbonate system with a high performance glass or even adding an Lantern style roofing system.
Glow has an amazing range of thermally efficient. Solar controlled, self- cleaning glass solutions to suit all of your requirements getting your ideas off the drawing board and making them a reality
Ambi Sunshade Blue is our best performing blue, solar controlledglass to date, with fantastic solar and heat reflection properties of up to 80%, 20% greater than our previous blue tinted glass.
The traditional sky blue tint of Ambi Sunshade Blue also provides increased glare reduction, while its aesthetically pleasing visual appearance makes this glass one of the most popular in the Ambience range of tinted conservatory roof glass.
A striking ultra dark tinted glass that increases the recreationaluse of conservatories, especially in strong sunlight conditions.
Market leading solar heat reflection, coupled with exceptional lighttransmission properties, combine to provide a distinctive, cooler, shaded environment beyond even the best of existing high performance conservatory glass.
As its name suggests the Ambi-Blue glass roof option comes in a delicate blue tint and offers up to 60% reflection from the sun’s heat rays, reducing the internal temperature of a conservatory in summer for easy all-year-round living.
For those who prefer more neutral tones in their conservatory, choosing Ambi-Neutral with the least amount of tint in the range, provides a natural look to the finished room.
The advanced technology of this glass reflects 60% of the sun’s heat away from the conservatory. Ambi-Neutral also optimises thermal insulation during cold winter months, offering homeowners many benefits including reducing the sun’s glare by 63%.
Self-Cleaning GlassA coating that reacts with UV rays in sunlight to generate a photocatalytic process, that loosens and breaks down organic dirt particles on the surface of the glass. The surface of the coating is hydrophilic. Therefore, instead of forming droplets, it attracts water so that it spreads and forms a thin film that ‘sheets’ away quickly, and dries off without leaving unsightly ‘drying spots’. Self-Cleaning glass leaves less dirt and grime adhering to the glass resulting in the glass staying cleaner for longer, meaning less maintenance is needed.
Solar FactorAs its name suggests, solar control glass helps regulate the amount of solar energy that enters a building. Solar control glass saves money by reducing the amount of energy used by heating and air conditioning systems, and boosts comfort levels inside the building by controlling indoor temperatures and light levels.
U-ValueA measure of air-to-air heat transmission (loss or gain) due to thermal conductance, and the difference in indoor and outdoor temperatures. As the U-Value decreases, so does the amount of heat that is transferred through the glazing material. The lower the U-Value, the more restrictive the fenestration product is to heat transfer (Reciprocal of the R-Value). This is a critical function in that it makes it possible to strike an optimum balance between economy and ecology. The lower the U-Value, the more efficient the insulation.
Light TransmissionThe measurement of light passing through glass. Too much light can create an uncomfortable environment with glare becoming a particular problem. Insufficient light transmittance can result in reduced visibility.Manufactured to EN 1279-2-3
If you find your conservatory is too hot in summer or too cold in winter our glass products can transform it into a light and airy living space you can use all year round. Glow glass products have improved solar control, enhanced thermal insulation and self-cleaning properties which can transform your home into a light, airy and comfortable living space that can be enjoyed all year round whatever the weather
Our glass products provide an optimal balance of light transmission and solar heat control, as well as reducing glare and UV radiation.
Often during the summer months, some homeowners find that the temperature in their conservatories rises to unbearable levels during the day. All our solar control glass products have high heat reflection rates, ensuring your conservatory will be much cooler during the warmer weather compared to a polycarbonate roof. A lot of people also have issues with the uncomfortable glare that the sun produces on sunny days. Our glass products have a high glare reduction rate eliminating this uncomfortable problem whilst also protecting furnishings from fading.
Many homeowners also find it difficult to keep their conservatories warm in the cooler months and they quickly cease to use them. Glow glass products are an ideal solution to this problem providing excellent thermal insulation and heat retentions. The special coatings help retain more heat, so when the heating is on in the winter the room will stay warmer and will require less energy to reach your desired temperature reducing energy bills.
All our conservatory roof glass products also have a self-cleaning coating which prevents dirt and grime adhering to the glass, resulting in the glass staying cleaner for longer, meaning less maintenance is required.
