Conservatory Comfort Solar Heat Reflecting Sheets for Glass and Polycarbonate Roofs – the effective way to control your conservatory environment

Conservatory too hot, too cold, excessive glare, harmful UV rays, plants dying?

There is no doubt that there is something special about relaxing, enjoying a hobby or even working in a light airy conservatory environment under glass but those who have had a conservatory for a season or two know that controlling that environment is not easy. All too often during the summer months, the conservatory can suffer from massive solar heat gain making it uncomfortably hot with temperatures reaching over 50°C / 130°F! Likewise in the winter months and spring / autumn evenings the temperatures can plummet as the heat simply escapes through the glass roof and windows. What’s more the glare caused by bright sunshine can be uncomfortable and at times unbearable. We estimate that these factors would leave the average conservatory unusable for about a third of the year!

Conservatory Comfort has the simple cost effective answer

High performance solar heat reflecting sheet effectively reflect the sun’s heat and rays out before they get into the conservatory – a major advantage over conservatory blinds and air conditioning. It also provides more resistance to heat escaping in the colder months making your conservatory usable and saving on heating bills.

Solar film has been available for some years but has not been a viable solution to homeowners as it is very difficult to apply as a film is flimsy. It requires specialist knowledge and experience to install. However we have developed a unique solution of supplying a semi-rigid sheet that is pre cut, delivered to site and trimmed to fit if necessary.

The sheet is installed on top of the roof glazing, so it can also be used on polycarbonate roofs where solar inserts are not an option if the cavities are difficult or impossible to access. This may include where there are valley gutters and rooflights.

A particular feature is its ability to reduce the high noise levels of rain on the roof. Further information.

Look at the performance:

  • Reflects up to 85% of Solar Energy – generally reduces temperature to comfortable levels of around 27°C / 80°F
  • Improved winter insulation – more comfort and less need for expensive secondary heating
  • Reduce glare by up to 85% – more comfort for relaxing, entertaining or working whilst retaining the light, airy environment
  • Reduce harmful UV Rays by up to 99% – protect you and your furniture
  • Noticeably reduces the noise level during rain showers

For most conservatories as long as the glazing bars are assessable, solar heat reflecting sheet is 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 solar heat reflecting sheets onto the existing roof.
  • Replace the glazing bar covers.
