We have a wide range of films available for glass which can also be applied on conservatory glass roofs. However, there are some limitations with regards to compatibility, and the main issue is the composition of the glass in double glazed units.
My windows are double glazed and made of toughened glass
You're in luck! You'll be able to use the most efficient film, namely the dark reflective mirror film which we would recommend for the roof. A great combination is a reflective film on the roof, and either a heat rejection film or a tinted window film on the windows and doors around the room. The heat rejection film is designed to target the excess heat with little loss of natural light, and the tinted window film comes in 3 grades from dark to light.
My windows are double glazed and NOT made of toughened glass
This could be a problem as older double glazed units not made of toughened glass can be prone to failure when under heat stress. We would therefore recommend a medium reflective mirror film for the roof. However, the effect might not be satisfactory in which case you might need to consider a white blackout film which would make the glass opaque and control excess heat and glare in the process.
Can I apply the film myself?
The answer is yes, however, it can be a difficult job especially on complicated roof structures, or roofs with long panes, especially when working at heights and on ladders.
Please do not apply window film on a conservatory roof on a hot sunny day as the film will dry too quickly making it nigh on impossible to apply. Wait for a dull, cool day or do it early in the morning.
