Published on 6th May 2017

Along with modern innovation and progress, more and more options become available to us in all walks of life – but it can sometimes be a little challenging to understand what’s on offer. From the latest mobile phone handsets, to the best places to eat, how do you know what to choose and which options are best for you?

At Apropos, we’re bespoke, everything we design, manufacture and install is tailor made around you and your needs – so the options are pretty much endless – but with the guidance of our expert team of designers, we hope to help you make the best choice for you and your property. Making the journey to your new conservatory, orangery or extension has simple as possible.

Our designers will not only help you decide which style of glass and aluminium structure, will work best, they can also help talk you through planning information, building regulations and all the technical innovations that go into making each and every one of Apropos’ bespoke structures so special.

Today, we’re taking a closer look at some of the specialist glazing options available to you, with our Commercial Design Expert; Paul Schofield.

“There are an abundance of styles and varieties of glass now available on the market,” says Paul. “However, whichever type a homeowner chooses, they should ensure that it adheres to the best possible energy and thermal efficiency ratings, saving them energy on utilities and helping to regulate temperature 365 days a year.”

By combining some, or all, of the features Paul takes us through below, our range of specialist glazing can help improve your new structure, and your lifestyle, in many ways. From glass that cleans itself, to treated glazing which  uses varying methods to regulate the temperature withing your conservatory, orangery or extension.

Low E Glass

“Low E glass reflects heat back into rooms, thereby maintaining optimum room temperatures and reducing CO2 emissions.”

Argon Gas

“Argon gas is safely used to fill the gap between the two panes of glass in double glazing units, thereby reducing heat loss and increasing energy efficiency.”

Solar Control Glass

“Solar control glass helps reduce solar glare and the need for expensive sun blinds. This is of particular benefit to south-facing structures.”

Self Cleaning Glass

“Self cleaning glass reduces the need for cleaning glass. This is particularly useful for glass roofs on conservatories or hard to reach sections of glazing. By reducing the need for regular cleaning, self cleaning glass also benefits the environment with less need for detergents.”

Apropos offer a much wider range of enhanced glazing products, which you can take a look through here.
