Creating a Bespoke Design -
are just a few of the additional enhancement options
available for your conservatory, these include:
"K" Glass: This is a really worthwhile option,
especially if you hope to use the conservatory all year
round. This glass varies from normal Pilkington clear
glass in that one side of the glass has a special metal
coating, technically known as a low emissitivity, or Low
E. coating. This microscopic metal coating (which is
almost indistinguishable from normal clear glass) allows
shortwave radiation, like sunlight through, but reflects
longwave radiation, such as heat from fires and radiators
back into your conservatory making it easier to keep
warm. As the Low E. coating on the glass actually makes
the surface warmer to the touch, condensation is also
reduced. We especially recommend this option if you
decide to have a double-glazed roof.
mm Polycarbonate: Our standard conservatories come with 16mm
polycarbonate. For a little extra, you can upgrade to the
better insulating option of 25 mm polycarbonate. With its
six skins and reinforcing webbing, it provides perhaps
the best insulating roof option for conservatories today.
For the technically minded, it has an approximate
"U" value of 1.6 as opposed to 2.3 for 16 mm
polycarbonate. It is available in clear, bronze tint and
Glass Roofs: An essential for those of us who like to
see the stars at night! A fair amount more expensive and
much heavier than polycarbonate. You will also almost
certainly need some form of shading. That said - it is no
doubt one of the best options - very classy and
inspiring. We especially recommend the Pilkington
"K" option with this. There is also the option
of "anti-sun" glass for that "tinted"
Our favourite enhancement. Not necessary to put all over,
but it does look superb in the top opening vents.
Available in diamond and rectangular lead designs as well
as a host of more traditional designs such as Queen Anne
or Elizabethan. We also offer a superb range of
"coloured lites" options (stained glass type
design). See our Range.
can fit a whole host of "Georgian" styles to
your conservatory. From the more usual rectangular
Georgian bar design to Georgian sweeps (arches), gothic
arches, cathedral arches and specialist one off designs
to match listed buildings etc.
standard locks on all our conservatory windows and doors
are espagnolette multi-point locks (including night vent
position) on windows and a five point lock for doors.
There are many additional options including shootbolt
locks, SAC bolt locking, entry guard, hook and shoot
locks etc. Just contact us for further information or specify
on your quotation request.
What colour do you want? You name it and we almost
certainly can supply it. Our standard colours for PVCu
and aluminium are white, whilst for hardwood it is a
natural stain option such as mahogany, walnut or light
oak. We can, however, provide hardwood already primed in
green, cream and teak plus a whole host of options to
your specification. PVCu in mahogany woodgrain and cherry
oak woodgrain styles is also increasingly popular.
Additionally, both PVCu and aluminium can be specially
coloured in red, blue, green, black and orange! (and
that's just a few of the options!)
The above only really touches the surface on some of the
options available. From the most modern enhancements to
the more traditional replications, www.conservatoriestoday.co.uk and Dial a Conservatory supply the
