Roof Glass

When it comes to roof glass, we’ve got it covered too and supply many of the UK’s leading orangery, home office, extension and conservatory retailers in this specialist area.

We offer our own range of Clarity Sol conservatory roof glass, and working with the major brands, our roof glass range includes specialist glasses from Guardian, Pilkington and St Gobain. Due to the demanding nature of roof glass, not only from a safety perspective, but from heat loss and cleaning perspectives too, our best-selling roof glass includes:

SOLAR CONTROL GLASS

Guardian SunGuard & Sun Solar
Advanced coating technology offering the optimum in light, solar control and thermal performance, and available in a wide range of colours and performances to suit individual projects. It’s especially respected for its huge choice of light transmission options and choice of coloured or reflective appearance.

Pilkington Suncool™
Pilkington’s specialist solar control glass achieves solar radiation transmittance (g-value) ranging from 0.42 down to 0.17, external light reflections ranging from a low 10% up to 42% and light transmittance performance ranging from 70% to 28% giving excellent light/heat ratios. We also manufacture a specialist Activ Suncool which is dual coated single glass incorporating the Pilkington Activ™ self-cleaning coating on the outer surface and Pilkington Suncool solar control on the inner surface.

St Gobain COOL-LITE
SGG COOL-LITE SKN 144 II is a solar control glass, which blocks up to 77% of solar heat by reflecting it to the outside. It can be for use in residential or commercial buildings alike, either for façades or overhead glazing. Due to the unique solar control properties of the coating, the COOL-LITE range from SafeGuard is only available as toughened glass.

INTELLIGENT GLASS – SELF – CLEANING

Guardian ClimaGuard® Blue
Only recently launched to the UK market, Guardian ClimaGuard® Blue is a self-cleaning glass that combines solar control, thermal insulation and glare reduction in a single dual coated pane of glass, with a blue appearance. Its advanced hydrophilic and photocatalytic coating is activated by ultraviolet rays from the sun. The activated coating reduces the dirt’s ability to stick to the glass, whilst exposure to ultraviolet light, in combination with the coating, accelerates its decomposition. Dirt is easily washed away leaving the roof cleaner for longer.

Pilkington Activ™
The original, Activ was the first dual-action self-cleaning glass. Its unique photocatalytic and hydrophilic dual action properties mean it uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from dirt, giving not only the practical benefit of less cleaning, but also clearer, better-looking windows. It’s available as clear, blue or neutral.

St Gobain BIOCLEAN
SGG BIOCLEAN is a low-maintenance self-cleaning glass manufactured by depositing a transparent layer of photocatalytic and hydrophilic mineral material onto clear glass. The coating, which is integrated into the glass itself, ensures a high level of durability. The mechanical, thermal and acoustic properties of SGG BIOCLEAN are identical to normal glass.
