Safety Glass For Rooflights, Conservatories & Canopies

Selecting the right choice of glass for a conservatory, roof light, commercial atrium or other overhead glazing installation is paramount in determining a comfortable environment within the building whatever the weather outside.

From long experience, Lonsdale has worked with major glass manufacturers to determine the very best, high performance specification and glass combinations. For domestic projects price remains an important consideration, so we have sourced the best performing glass types at sensible prices to give excellent all year round comfort. Commercial projects may have different considerations, but again we place emphasis on best value and availability when recommending glass types to avoid long lead times and to keep costs down in the event of replacement.

Whatever the project, you can be sure we have the most cost-effective and SAFE solution available.​
