What is solar control glass? (Low-E Glass)

Solar control glazing has a special coating applied to it that allows specific degrees of sunlight inside, whilst reflecting the rest away to keep the space cool, protect you from harmful UV rays, and prevent furniture fade.

Does self-cleaning glass really work?

Yes! Self-cleaning glass has a special coating that’s activated by the UV rays present in daylight. Effectively breaking down organic dirt that’s washed away by the rain, self-cleaning glass saves time and energy that can be spent on more important things, whilst keeping your conservatory sparkling clean for longer.
