uPVC conservatories are the favourite choice of UK householders, and it’s not surprising. We all know the magic letters that stand for Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride – a strong, durable type of rigid plastic that is used to make a variety of things from window frames to guttering and piping.
It’s ideal for conservatory frame construction for a variety of reasons, one important one being that it is far the most inexpensive option compared to metal or timber.
Other big plus is that uPVC is low maintenance (a quick wipe down is all it takes to clean it), has great insulation properties, doesn’t rot or warp, and when properly installed can last for decades.
For home owners the most exciting feature of uPVC conservatories is that they are available in such a vast range of colours and finishes, shapes and sizes, so they can be easily customised to suit your house.
Conservatories consist mostly of glass, with the choice of a glass or polycarbonate roof, so the type of glazing used for a conservatory is very important. The glass you choose depends to a large extent on the position of the conservatory (shade or sunlight) and what you will be using it for.
As experienced suppliers of glass products we are knowledgeable about all the latest types of glazing and can recommend the best glass combinations to keep your conservatory thermally regulated all year round, energy efficient with the best u-values, and easy to clean with self-cleaning glass. You can opt for tinted, frosted or patterned glass if privacy is an issue.
Conservatories are generally fitted with toughened safety glass, which if broken disintegrates into hundreds of small dull pieces rather than lethal sharp shards.
