Celsius Performance Glass
More consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of glass roofing compared with polycarbonate. Aside from aesthetics, Glass tends to have a much longer life span compared to other roofing products and coupled with the ease of maintenance, it is now a preferred option by many discerning consumers.
The Celsius range was one of the first glazing options on the market to offer the unique combination of heat reflection AND thermal insulation, but Celsius has even more benefits.
Rainfall and traffic noise are dramatically reduced when compared to 25mm polycarbonate. The argon gas filled units reduce the noise even further as well as offering greater insulation properties.
With our Celsius One and Celsius Elite products, destructive UV rays are reduced by up to 94%, thus offering protection for furniture and fabrics from sun damage. Additionally Celsius Clear, with its neutral tinted appearance for side frames and certain roof installations, makes the Celsius range the complete performance glazing solution.
The Easy Clean feature is a special treatment to the outer pane of the double glazed unit. This treatment creates a surface that it is difficult for dirt to stick to, and means that it will generally wash away in the rain. Moreover, the treatment means that even stubborn stains will be easier to clean than normal glass. This treatment comes as standard across the entire Celsius range.
The table below gives you a clearer idea of the impressive performance of Celsius One, Celsius Elite and Celsius Clear when compared to standard glass or polycarbonate
The figures shown above are for guide purposes only. Slight variations may occur due to glass specification, time of year, manufacturing tolerance, point of manufacture and type of instrumentation used.
Visible Light Transmittance:
This is the percentage of visible light directly transmitted through the glass.
This is the percentage of total solar energy (or heat from the sun) able to pass through the glass.
U-Value: This is used to measure internal heat loss during cooler periods.
The lower the number, the greater the insulation.
UV Transmission: Sun damaging UV rays are dramatically reduced, allowing greater
protection of your furniture and fabrics.
