The Problem – Is your conservatory too hot?
Glass conservatory roofs are becoming a more popular choice for home-owners. However, the down side is they trap a lot of heat in them which can be so over whelming that sitting in your conservatory feels more like sitting in a greenhouse.

Can you see through conservatory window film?
First of all, like mentioned above these films are designed to reduce the glare, heat and UV. Hence, as a result, the films will have a tint or color to them, but they’re beauty is that they still maintain perfect optical clarity, so you can still see the stars at night when looking up through your glass roof, or enjoy the view you previously blocked with blinds.
Solar Reflection, Glare Reduction and UV Blocking Conservatory Window Films
How Does It Do This?
First of all, we need to look at heat transfer through a window. Solar Heat is transferred or transmitted by UV, Visible Light and Infrared Waves. Radiant energy is converted to heat when it strikes people or objects. Therefore if you block or interrupt the transfer of this energy you keep it from turning into heat because it never strikes an object.
Conservatory window film interrupts the transfer of this energy by reflecting solar energy away.
Transmission or transmittance is the percentage of solar energy which we know as a combination of UV, Visible Light, and Infrared that passes through a window. Reflection is the ratio or percentage of solar energy reflected back to the source. Absorption is the percentage of solar energy absorbed to that of the total solar energy.
Hence, this heat reflection and absorption transfer differs on each individual films specification. We know exactly what solar films would best suit your needs to reduce the solar heat, glare and UV rays from entering into your conservatory.
What is Conservatory Window Film?
Conservatory Window Film is a Solar Control product made up of micro layers of polyester known as laminates. In the laminates are precious metals such as silver, stainless steel, copper, gold, titanium chromium and others which are coated onto the polyester via a method known as Vapour Coating or Sputtering. This is a process of converting the metal particles into a fine mist or vapour with a positive charge and passing the polyester laminate through this “mist” with a negative charge to give an even coverage and this enables colour stability and longevity of the product.
This metallised layer is then in effect sandwiched between the Scratch Resistant Coating and another laminate of sometimes a colour stable dyed laminate, which then has the adhesive and UV inhibitors on that. The clear release liner is a waste product that protects the adhesive before final installation.
Look at the info-graphic below. It shows just how good window film is.
Conservatory Roof Blinds
Are Conservatory Roof Blinds A Solution?
Many people resort to having conservatory roof blinds installed to combat against the affects of the sun. But are they effective? Blinds are very good for interior design, can add a solid warm feel to a conservatory and give un-matched glare control. But we ask; why have a glass conservatory roof, if you are going to cover it up with roof blinds?
Would you like your conservatory roof looking like this?
1. Blinds cost £££’s and have a very short warranty and lifespan.
2. Blinds do not stop the heat entering through the glass, this results with the suns heat still entering into your conservatory.
3. Blinds block your view out when drawn.
4. Blinds are a furnishing quickly damaged by UV rays.
5. Blinds require regular cleaning as they collect dust and flies. You also risk breaking and damaging your expensive blinds trying to maintain them.
Conservatory Window Film
1. Conservatory Window Film is very low cost in comparison and has a 10 year guarantee.
2. It stops the suns affects at the glass, immediately reflecting it away and in winter can reflect internal heat back into the room.
