Glazing Applications

From elegant lanterns and skylights to stunning bifolds and windows, our high performing products create the sophisticated and contemporary solution you’re looking for. Combining heat reflection and thermal insulation with noise reducing properties, they can provide energy efficient comfort all-year-round.


A conservatory or orangery is a quick, inexpensive way to add flexible living space and value. Conservatories are especially popular in the warmer months, whereas orangeries feature large windows set between insulating brick piers, for enjoyment in every season.

Expert Advice

To get the most out of your conservatory you need to make sure you’ve got the optimal glass in your conservatory roof. You need a glass that allows your conservatory to be a room that can be used all year round, preventing overheating in the summer and extreme low temperatures in the winter. To achieve this, we recommend a glass with low solar gain and U-value statistics, coupled with acoustic capabilities to reduce noise pollution.

and flat roofs

Skylights’ frameless design makes for a bright, airy space, due to their generous natural light entry. They also come in the form of a flat roof— a single glass unit panel fitted into the ceiling. Both flat roofs and skylights are extremely energy efficient with the right glass.

Expert Advice

Skylights are a classic yet contemporary choice. They don’t take up much space, so can dramatically improve light entry throughout the home. We’d suggest a glass with solid insulation and solar gain statistics, perhaps with added sound reduction.

Bifold doors

Bifold doors are the epitome of contemporary living and aspirational glazing. They’re top hung, offering a smooth sliding action that’s easier to open and close than conventional doors. They can tuck away nicely, either inside or outside, saving valuable space.

Expert Advice

Install bifold doors for the smooth opening action, and an instant way to combine the great outdoors with the great indoors. Choose one of our high-performance bifold glasses to help create a space that looks and feels good, with a high level of insulation and heat reflection.

Lantern roofs

Lantern roofs are perfect if you want to maximise daylight, with a multifaceted design capturing it from all directions. Fitting modern extensions with a lantern roof offers many benefits, including a timeless aesthetic and more natural light for enhanced well‐being.

Expert Advice

The best lantern roof glass is one that performs, not only in terms of insulation, but also in solar gain. It is common to see a roof application that overheats in the summertime. Choose glass with a low solar gain that keeps the heat out and stays cool in summer.

Expert Advice

In your windows it’s important to have glass that can perform in a number of key areas. Firstly, your windows need to be long-lasting and impact resistant, for this we recommend a toughened unit. Secondly, your windows need to be thermally efficient, for this we’d recommend the addition of a low E coating, meaning your window is better able to reflect heat back into your home.
