Reflexand#174; Clear Maximises Light

For some time now the specialist conservatory roof glass reflex™ has been available in a Clear option to compliment the blue tint options. As a unique solar control product designed to give impressive solar reflection, energy efficiency and glare reduction benefits Clear reflex™ has been a popular option for some years now. This clear neutral solar control glass allows up to 68% of light to flood into the conservatory, whilst maintaining temperature control and low surface reflection.

Using the very latest multilayer coating technology the soft coated glass features layers of Silver, Indium oxide and Aluminum to reflect and reject a large part of the solar spectrum frequency range. This impressive technology gives a surface emissivity of 0.02 which provides the best U-value obtainable on a double glazed unit today with only one coated surface and without the need for expensive triple glazing.

Ideal for the vertical frames of a conservatory, reflex™ Clear means that it maximizes light transmission and ensures home owners can make the most of the views from their conservatory, while overcoming all the issues normally associated with standard glass. Able to reflect up to 68% of solar energy experienced during the summer months, the performance glass also outperforms standard glass by 70% in terms of energy efficiency, helping to reduce heating bills and deliver a pleasant and comfortable environment all year round.

Whilst some of the lower budget “self cleaning” type products currently on the market are only available in blue tint for limited solar control, reflex™ Clear offers outstanding solar protection in terms of heat reduction and UV blocking. Temperature reductions of between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius during summer have been achieved by glazing a conservatory in reflex+ ™ premium products in both the roof and side frames.

Reflex™ Clear units feature warm edge Super Spacer® technology as standard, conform to EN 1279 standard and are backed by a 20-year warranty against seal failure.
