Intelligent glazing for next generation glass roofs.

All CR Smith orangeries and conservatories feature Smartglass roofs. There are a number of benefits that make it our number one choice for all glass roof products, allowing you to make the most of your new living space. 

As the name suggests, Smartglass® is indeed smart. It’s far quieter than the polycarbonate glazing sheets, especially during bad weather, and does much more to regulate the temperature in a conservatory or orangerie. It can keep itself cleaner for longer, reflects unwanted heat and glare from the sun in summer, yet helps retain warmth during the winter months.

Smartglass® key features.

Heat loss reduction

Using a low emissivity coating, argon gas filled cavity and warm edge technology, a typical conservatory roof glazed with Smartglass ® is able to retain warmth in the winter months twice as well as standard glazing.

Heat reflection

The solar control coating and subtle tint in Smartglass® reflects up to 60%* of the sun’s radiant heat during the summer months, dramatically reducing the unwanted build-up of heat that occurs with other glass and polycarbonate roofs.

Glare reduction

Smartglass ® does much more to regulate the temperature in a conservatory than standard glass. It is designed to dramatically reduce the glare of the sun, reflecting nearly 60%* of visible light and filtering out harmful UV rays. The result is a light and airy room, which can be further enhanced in tone by one of the four Smartglass® subtle tints.

Stays cleaner for longer

Smartglass ® provides low-maintenance technology with its ground-breaking self-clean properties. It has a dual action ‘photo-catalytic’ coating on the outer face, which harnesses the ultraviolet energy in daylight to break down organic matter and then allows it to stay cleaner for longer.

Soundproofing

Made from two panels of 4mm toughened safety glass, the rigid unit construction offers twice the soundproofing of standard roofing products such as polycarbonate.

Warm edge technology

No matter how efficient your glazing is, condensation can still form at the edges of the frames. That’s because the metallic spacer bar at the edges acts as a thermal bridge, allowing the cold air to transmit through it. To reduce this, Smartglass ® uses warm edge technology which is 950 times more efficient than aluminium, increasing internal temperatures and minimising condensation.

Smartglass ® tints.

Available in a choice of four subtle tints for you to choose from. Our most popular option is the blue tint, helping every day look like a summer’s day, while neutral will provide a more natural hue. Other like the greenish tones of our aqua tint and bronze tends to be better suited to woodgrain conservatories and orangeries.
