Reflex performance glass: Buying the right glass for your conservatory can save you money on expensive blinds and reduce overheating in the peak of summer.

Reflex glass: Research has shown that eighty percent of conservatory owners will spend over one thousand pounds on internal blinds within eighteen months of purchasing a conservatory. Conservatory roof manufacturers do not advocate the use of blinds with their roof systems.

Reflex glass reduces solar gain: A typical south facing installation during summer can reach temperatures above 45 degrees Celsius making the conservatory unbearable and a true hot house. With RE-FLEX the internal temperature is reduced by ten to fifteen degrees Celsius cooler, allowing the conservatory to be enjoyed for more hours a day

Reflex glass retains heat: In the winter a cold conservatory can be a cold room but thanks to RE-FLEX fifty percent more heat is retained than a standard double glazed unit. Which leads to lower heating bills and more comfortable use of your conservatory even on the coldest of winter nights.

Reflex glass features: RE-FLEX™ glass used in both the conservatory roof and side frames (Neutral clear option for maximum light transmittance) tackles the twin problems of overheating in summer and keeping warm in winter.

Five reasons why reflex high performance glass should be used in conservatories

Reflex glass reason one: An invisible metallic coating on the inner surface of the external pane reduces the solar heat energy that can enter the conservatory. Solar heat transfer is reduced by up to seventy-five percent compared to a standard double glazed unit. The subtle light blue tint reduces glare by up to forty-four percent but still ensures good light transmission for both visual and thermal comfort.

Reflex glass reason two: The heat loss co-efficient is reduced to 0.9 W/m2.K on RE-FLEX™ plus with argon gas. This low U-Value is equivalent to a cavity brick wall and offers excellent insulation properties for big savings on winter heating. Because the loss of heat from inside to outside is reduced, it is much easier to keep the climate indoors at an even temperature making savings on summer air conditioning

Reflex glass reason three: An 'easy clean' external surface treatment to the glass reduces the need for cleaning and makes dirt and bird mess easy to remove. The hydrophobic polymer coating promotes water run off which washes dirt and mess away with the rain, keeping the glass looking fresher. Developed for marine applications this coating is ideal for conservatory roofs where access for cleaning is difficult

Reflex glass reason four: The latest duel seal high performance manufacturing techniques allow us to offer RE-FLEX™ insulated glass units with an extended warranty against unit seal failure. Every glass roof comes complete with after care instructions for the homeowner and fitting guidelines for the installer. RE-FLEX™ uses the very latest robotic manufacturing a system, which means that the glass is only touched by human hand at the very end of the process when it is one hundred percent quality, inspected.

Reflex glass reason five: RE-FLEX™ is twice as effective as Pilkington K glass™ at reducing solar heat, allowing homeowners to use their conservatory for longer periods in summer and winter. Often the most favourite room in the house, a conservatory should be as comfortable as possible, RE-FLEX™ allows owners to maximise the use of their conservatory. Expensive blinds are no longer needed for the RE-FLEX™ glazed roof, making this a sound investment for the modern day installation.

Reflex glass the next generation of glass for conservatories and replacement windows: RE-FLEX™ is the next generation of conservatory roof glass designed specifically for the British weather. This smart glass uses an invisible metallic coating that is applied to our glass using the latest coating technology

Fifty percent: Light transmission on blue tint option
Seventy percent: Light transmission on clear option
Ninety-five percent: UV rejection protects furniture & fabrics

What makes reflex high performance glass work: The thin coating that RE-FLEX™ features is unique to reflex glass product and is applied under license in the UK. This combination coating keeps out up to seventy-five percent of solar heat but with maximum light transmission of up to seventy percent on clear Reflex and in winter keeps in fifty percent more heat than a normal double glazed unit, reducing heating and air conditioning costs. The subtle blue tint option reduces the suns glare by forty-four percent giving a feel good factor and lifting the feel of the day. Harmful UV transmission is cut by up to ninety-five percent eliminating sun damage to furniture and fabrics.

How can you make sure if specified you get reflex performance glass installed in your conservatory or replacement windows: Many homeowners request reflex after seeing the benefits in our glossy eight page brochure but are then duped into a lower spec product with out a 20 year guarantee. To make sure this doesn't happen to you, look out for the reflex logo burnt into the corner of the glass units. In addition to this a unique manufacturing job number should be printed on the spacer bar inside the unit on the longest side about three mm high X fifty mm long in tiny yellow along with the manufacture date. It should look like this: RE-FLEX PERFORMANCE SAFETY GLASS UNIT -- MANUFACTURED TO EN1279 PT 2--- MARCH 2006

Specify RE-FLEX conservatory glass to give you a conservatory that is more comfortable throughout the year.
