With an optimum g-value of 0.43 SGG PLANITHERM® 4S provides excellent levels of solar protection for conservatory side walls, reducing unwanted heat by more than 2/3. With a U-value of 1.0W/m2K* the company says that its thermal insulation far exceeds all current available products, whilst still allowing excellent levels of natural light and the neutrality you would expect from the SGG PLANITHERM range. ‘Furthermore when combined with SGG BIOCLEAN® COOL-LITE ST in the roof glazing, a g-value as low as 0.29 can be achieved, blocking over 70% of direct heat from the sun where it is needed most. Add to this the benefits of our dual-action self-cleaning coating and reduced glare and you have an all round glazing solution.’
Consumers are rapidly becoming aware of the glass options that are available to them and as a result are demanding more multi functional solutions. No longer is it acceptable for a conservatory to be unusable for 9 months of the year due to excessive over heating or cold conditions. There is an expectation that the conservatory will be an enjoyable, comfortable addition to the home, providing a useable extra living space, whatever the time of year.
