Is your conservatory too hot? Our conservatory window films are the perfect solution. They will help with excess heat, glare and help prevent damage on furnishings by cutting down UV light. Stylish and affordable, window film still allows you to enjoy the view through the glass, and unlike conservatory blinds is easy to maintain and much more affordable. All our films can be ordered by the metre or cut to your exact measurements.Read More
We have a wide range of films available for glass which can also be applied on conservatory glass roofs and windows. However, there are some limitations with regards to compatibility, and the main issue is the composition of the glass in double glazed units.
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.
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.
The answer is yes, especially on the side windows and doors. However, when it comes to the roof itself, it can be a difficult job especially on complicated roof structures, or roofs with long panes, especially when working at heights and on ladders. Ideally two people are best suited for the job.
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.
We offer an installation service covering Central and Greater London, as well as most of the South East. Get in with us via our contact form and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
