Conservatory Too Hot in Summer?
Conservatories become TOO HOT in summer because the Sun’s heat enters the conservatory through the roof glazing and is trapped inside by the greenhouse effect.
We incorporate transparent heat reflectors to combat the problem of overheating . The performance of our Heat reflectors is exceptional:
- Exclude 85% of the solar heat before it enters the glazing
- Make conservatories cool, and comfortable and free of glare
- Combat fading by eliminates 99% of the UV rays
- Cut winter heating costs to make conservatories warm and more economic to heat
- Maintenance free and Ten year guarantee – with expectancy of 20 years
Improved temperatures in your conservatory
Our heat reflectors are incorporated into conservatory roofs in three ways. Please click on the green boxes, below, for full details.
OPTION 1 – IN-SITU Upgrades for existing Glass or Polycarbonate Roofs
Our transparent heat reflectors, which are similar to those used in high performance glazing, are simply installed in Glass or Polycarbonate roofed conservatories without disturbing the roof to provide a simply, and relatively low cost solution. That excludes 80% of Solar heat, cuts glare, and retains up to 25% of heat that would otherwise be lost in winter.

IN-SITU UPGRADE FOR EXISTING, AND NEW POLYCARBONATE ROOFS
Solar heat reflectors for Polycarbonate roofs Unique and Patented in 1992 our lightly tinted heat reflectors are simply inserted into the upper hollow flutes of the Polycarbonate panels to exclude 80% of the sun’s heat, glare, and 99% of the UV rays for summer comfort.
In winter they cut heat loss by up to 25%. In this way we are able to upgrade plain polycarbonate to the same specification as a Solar Glazing.

For Glass roofs:
The heat reflectors are laminated in-situ to the glass; they are inconspicuous except for a light tint in daylight and provide a clear view out . Internal or external installation is possible depending on the application.
Our product, which is totally unique to this company and which can be installed externally was developed in the early 1990’s. It is based on Poly Vinyl Fluoride, the most durable polymer known.
We laminate this in-situ to the outside face of the double glazing unit to stop the solar heat before it can enter the glazing system to replicate the performance of the best Solar glazing.
Where the principal concern is winter insulation, we laminate directly to the inside surface of the glazing using a grade that has the ability to reflect room temperature heat back into the room to reduce winter heat loss by up to 25%.

They also combat the annoying noise from Polycarbonate roofs reducing it to that of a glass roof. Watch the video, below, to view Noise reducing tests.

Fitting of noise and heat reducing sheets is straightforward
Simply remove the glazing bar cover, place the heat reflective sheet on top of the glazing panel, and refit the glazing bar cover to clamp the heat reflecting sheet in position.
