Conservatory Comfort Sound Reducing Sheets – the unique solution to noisy polycarbonate conservatory roofs

Polycarbonate is lightweight, transparent, a good insulator and relatively inexpensive making it a great material for conservatory roofs. However, the sound of heavy rain and hail reverberating on it can be so intense that the conservatory becomes unbearable to use – certainly an issue with the British climate!

In simple terms, the polycarbonate structure acts like a drum to give a loud but ‘tinny’ high frequency sound when hit by rain which tends to be irritating to the human ear. We have developed and patented a unique retro fit solution that cuts the resonant frequency and volume of roof noise to a comfortable level for conservatory living.

Our externally fitted Sound Reducing Sheets are manufactured from a ‘softer’ material that absorbs the impact of the rain better and does not transmit the sound as much through the roof – the result is a duller, quieter sound.

To illustrate how effective the product is, we prepared a very simple demonstration – see a short video – you’ll need speakers!

Available with or without solar heat reflecting treatment.

The sound and heat reflective sheets have all the benefits detailed on other pages of the site – cool in summer, warmer in winter, combats glare and UV rays – click here for further information. However, if you do not require such benefits, sound reducing sheets are available which are perfectly transparent without out the reflective tint.

Simple to Fit…

For most conservatories as long as the glazing bars are assessable, sound reducing sheets are simple to fit and invariably can be completed within a day*. All that is needed is a set of steps for access to roof, sharp knife for trimming and screw driver and rubber mallet to remove and replace the glazing bar.

The sequence is as follows:

  • Remove the glazing bar covers
  • Place the pre-cut sound reducing sheets onto the existing roof
  • Replace the glazing bar covers
  • Alternatively, depending on the roof design, place the pre cut solar heat reflecting sheets on to the existing roof and secure by fitting a glazing bar cover (supplied) above the existing.
