We use Kooline Activ Blue™ which contains Pilkington K glass™. This is a thermally efficient glass and therefore will keep more heat in the building. Your conservatory will be kept warm even in the coldest winter weather, making it a more comfortable environment and helping to reduce your heating bills.
Kooline Activ Blue™ sealed units are also filled with argon gas which helps to reduce the U Value of the unit and therefore make it thermally more efficient.
Kooline Activ Blue™ is the ideal double glazed sealed unit for your conservatory roof.
That’s because it’s the only insulating glass unit that combines the beneficial qualities of self-cleaning technology, solar control and thermal insulation.
Pilkington Activ is an attractive tinted glass that comes in “blue, green, clear and neutral”. It combines dual-action, self-cleaning properties with medium solar control performance helping to create a cooler internal environment in the summer which can be used all year round; whilst still maintaining light transmittance.
The glass manages solar heat radiation by three mechanisims: reflectance, transmittance and absorbance.
These are defined as follows:
Kooline Activ Blue™ contains a microscopic coating which uses sunlight and rainwater to break down and wash away organic dirt from the exterior surface of the glass unit, making it ideal for hard to reach places that are difficult to clean, such as conservatory roofs. This helps to make Kooline Activ Blue™ the perfect low maintenance unit.
The coating has photo-catalyctic and hydrophilic properties, and works in two stages:
Stage 1 – The coating reacts with natural daylight to break down and loosen organic dirt.
Stage 2 – when it rains, instead of forming droplets, the water spreads evenly over the surface of the glass, helping to wash away any dirt and reduce streaking.
