How to keep cool in your conservatory

Posted on - June 15, 2022

And add a touch of class to your glass too!

We’re having a bit of a mini heatwave at the moment. Long may it continue.

Maybe summer is officially here?

Enjoying the beautiful weather in your conservatory or garden room is one of life’s little pleasures.

There’s nothing nicer than sitting reading, having supper, or just relaxing in and letting that summer sun wash over you.

Of course – there can be too much of a good thing.

The strong summer sunlight streaming through your glass can become overpowering.

In fact, it can make your lovely conservatory totally unbearable.

beautiful – but it can get way too hot!


Durable have the answer.

Solar control window film

It’s a simple, effective and economical solution which has minimal impact on your home and décor.

Window film can significantly reduce heat & glare by more than 80%, whilst almost completely eradicating unwanted and harmful UV rays.

For example:

This conservatory roof had been glazed with a Pilkington K glass.

Durable install solar control window film to conservatory roof

It’s often found in modern conservatory roofs as it offers a good level of solar control.

Clear glass roofs let most of the sun’s heat & brightness through – and the neutral finish of K glass reduces glare 55% and heat by 53%.

However — this was not adequate to tackle the volume of heat coming through a roof sloping to face the sun most of the day.

On top of the conservatory air being hot — the problem was also affecting the rest of the house.

It was uncomfortable to sit in the conservatory in direct sunlight.

Far from ideal.

Blinds were not appropriate (compromising the open environment provided by the glass roof) – but the heat and glare issue had to be addressed to make the conservatory more habitable.

Durable to the rescue

We installed the Truevue 15 film, which reduced the brightness of the sunlight by a further 85%, and the heat of the sun by another 50%.

A great result and everybody ends up a winner!

Even when the sun is sweltering hot – you can keep cool in the conservatory with solar control window film
