We have a cost effective solutions to make your conservatory more usable during the summer months which can reduce up to 15°C off summer temperatures inside a south facing conservatory and this isn’t sales hype it’s our customers feedback.

"First class service! The film installed in the roof panels of a fairly large conservatory (30m²) have reduced the ambient temperature by 10° – 15°C even in these summer high temperatures. Although the film replaced roof blinds, there is now no glare and we can use the conservatory far more than had been the case. The attention to detail and standard of work undertaken by Mark and his assistant, Adam, was excellent."

"Our glass coatings can retain heat even though they are primarily designed to reflect summer heat away but our customer always mention its noticeable warmer in the evenings but conservatories with older glass with out Low E coatings we can use our Films for all seasons range with an additional active Low E coating which is designed to reflect residual heat back into the room before it reaches the glass achieving a possible 41% heat loss reduction on some glass types.
After the conservatory had the films applied we can now use it when the sun shines, there has been a considerable reduction in heat and glare from the sun. The additional privacy has been welcome and brought amusement as we are finding passers by checking their hair in the windows. This winter has been one of the coldest but this is the first winter we have ever used the conservatory through the winter the glass films have definitely made it warm enough to use all year round."
Mr & Mrs Heward, Barton upon Humber
