Conservatories add light and space to any building, making it a place for all seasons. Because the glazing element is the most important material in this type of building it is critical to choose the most suitable type of glazing.
- In summer – it must reduce passive solar heat energy
- In winter – excellent thermal insulation must be provided to prevent cold spots, whilst reducing heating bills and maintaining good natural light
- All year round – the glazing should enable buildings to benefit from natural sunlight without heat build up
Key products include:
• SGG PLANITHERM 4S
SGG PLANITHERM 4S combines solar control and thermal insulating properties. Providing a comfortable year round environment, it is ideal for conservatory applications and can be used in both the roofs and the vertical glazing.
• SGG BIOCLEAN COOL-LITE ST and SGG BIOCLEAN COOL-LITE AQUA GREEN
SGG BIOCLEAN COOL-LITE ST is a dual-function glass that provides both solar protection and a self-cleaning low-maintenance coating on the outside surface. This unique glass combines two coatings so you can have the best of both worlds! The SGG BIOCLEAN coating harnesses UV light and rain to efficiently breakdown and rinse away dirty residues so your windows stay cleaner for longer. At the same time the SGG COOL-LITE coating blocks up to 2/3 of heat by reflecting it to the outside therefore keeping the interior temperature cooler during sunny spells. Now available with an attractive AQUA GREEN tint.
• SGG STADIP SILENCE
SGG STADIP SILENCE combines two sheets of clear glass bonded together with a totally transparent plastic interlayer. The interlayer absorbs sound and reduces the level transmitted through the glass helping to keep both unwanted noise out, or to keep noise in.
