Our Product - About Polycool Solar Inserts

Polycool Solar Control Inserts, carefully manufactured to our own unique specification, are designed to be easily and quickly fitted to '99% of all conservatories' with polycarbonate roofs.

Conservatory Too Hot?

Conservatories are more popular now than ever and a wonderful addition to the home. However due to the roof materials used, (polycarbonate, pvc or glass), 'solar heat gain' or 'infrared heat' produced by the sun penetrates through the roof causing the internal temperature to rise uncomfortably - so your conservatory feels like an "oven".


During the extremes of summer, conservatory temperatures can rise up to 130°F - 140°F. With this unbearable problem there is only one solution and that is the installation of 'Polycool Solar Control Inserts'.


Quickly and easily fitted within the existing polycarbonate roof channels the inserts will reflect 'up to 85% of the suns solar energy' and can reduce the temperature within the conservatory by 'up to 40°F in high Summer'.

Conservatory Too Cold?

Naturally, conservatories are colder during the Winter, due to;Polycool Inserts

  1. Seasonal change
  2. Lower sunshine levels
  3. Heat escape via the roof

During these colder Winter months your conservatory can become a "freezer"releasing approximately 85% of the heat build-up during the day through the roof, to the cold Winter night.


By installing Polycool Reflective Film Insulation you will experience an increase in the ambient temperature within the conservatory.Polycool Inserts


Polycool increases the thermal resistance to heat loss and the U Value of the polycarbonate roof panels by 10-15%, and re-radiates heat built during the day, reducing the level of heat escape and the volume of energy required to heat the conservatory, resulting in a noticeably warmer conservatory and helping to reduce house hold energy bills.
