What is Solar Control glass?

A solar control glass is a glass with a special coating designed to reduce the amount of heat entering a building. It reflects and absorbs heat as well as filtering light for reduced glare. Using a solar control glass can reduce the need for air-conditioning and blinds. There are many types of solar control glass offering different aesthetic options; tinted, reflective and neutral.

The glass used in our conservatory roof glazing has a versatile solar control coating. It helps to prevent the build up of heat during hot summer months.

The solar control coating reflects the heat from the sun back to the outside of the conservatory keeping the interior cooler in the summer months, and significantly reduces the amount of heat that is able to pass into your conservatory providing you with a more comfortable and useable living space.

The coating is incorporated into our Natura and Aqua roof glass solutions for maximum solar control and is combined with SGG PLANITHERM 4S glass for maximum thermal insulation. The coloured tints on our roof glass also provide solar control as they absorb more heat and radiate it back to the outside. Combining a tint with a coating to reflect even more heat will increase the overall cooling performance even further.

The result? You can have the best of both worlds - solar control coating to keep cooler in warmer summer months, and the thermal retention properties of SGG PLANITHERM 4S in the winter.


  •     Tint - uses its inherent colour to absorb heat

  •     Coating - reflects heat back to the outside

  •     Tint and Coating - absorbs and reflects heat for maximum comfort
