There is no need for us to tell you that the key to a truly functional conservatory and orangery is the right glass.
For many years now the idea that choosing the right glass performance will help control the environment inside your conservatory keeping it cool in the Summer and warm in Winter has been proven time and time again, and the growth of glass roof conservatories has risen in popularity year on year.
Traditional polycarbonate roofs can often leave a conservatory unusable in Winter and unbearably hot in Summer. Today conservatory roof glass has moved on, although still relies heavily on tinted glass combined with basic solar controlled coatings to provide the best solar control performance. However in many cases these do not provide complete control, often relying on a second pane of low emissivity glass on the surface to provide complete year round performance, keeping your conservatory cooler in the Summer and warmer in winter.
As we all know, conservatory roofs consist of many bespoke shapes and sizes, often leaving high wastage and low yields. With complete performance split over two panes, IE. solar control on pane one and low emissivity on pane two, the cost of high value coated glass wasted on both panes makes conservatory roof units even more expensive. With Guardian ClimaGuard CG we are providing complete performance in one glass, reducing the waste of coated glass by 50% and leaving the inner pane as a far less expensive clear float.
ClimaGuard CG is high performance solar control and thermally insulating glass designed to offer optimum heat reflection and exceptional thermal insulation in one coating. Climaguard CG offers roof glass which reflects 77% of solar heat radiation and U value performance of 1.0 W/m2k. It also provides a 60% reduction in glare and achieves all of this in the most colour neutral way available on the market, with just an 8% colour distortion compared to the best alternatives available on the market, which greatly rely on blue or a green tint glass to achieve the same performance.
To top all this off ClimaGuard CG is produce on extra clear float glass which provides an advanced level of clarity to traditional clear float, and ensures the best and most natural aesthetic appearance available currently on the market for use in conservatories and orangeries.
For true all year round use of your conservatory it is necessary to provide exceptional solar control and thermal insulation on the walls.
On average there is 40% more glass used in conservatory walls compared to the roof, giving you a 40% greater glazed area to influence the environment inside your conservatory. For complete all year round use of your conservatories or orangeries we recommend ClimaGuard CG for walls, which provides the most natural glass appearance with complete performance. Thermal insulation is achieved with an optimum U value of 1.0 W/m2K and solar heat rejection of 63%. This accompanied by the most natural aesthetic appearance possible with minimal colour distortion of just 4% ClimaGuard CG ensures the views out of your conservatories are kept as untainted and natural as possible.
All of this makes ClimaGuard CG one of the best performing conservatory glass ranges available on the market with the most natural appearance available to date. For more information go to www.guardianglass.co.uk
