Specification of our Glass Box Extensions

Glass is not traditionally known for its strength but the glass used to build these beautiful glass enclosures is second to none, with a U value of only 1.4 as standard. The U value is a measurement of how well a structure keeps heat inside a building. This might be a wall, a roof or in the case glass. The U-value is also a good indicator of how long a structure can keep cool. The higher the U-value, the more heat passes though the structure, so a low U-value means that the heat is kept inside, whilst the cold is kept out but visa versa in the warmer months.


This means that the glass used by glass design and build comes well within the maximum requirement. It is extremely thermally efficient and even lower U Values can be achieved by altering the specification of the glass to give a greater performance of 1.1 or even as low as 0.7. This is more than able to handle our British weather while keeping you, your family and friends in a cozy, warm area in winter and a pleasantly cool one in summer. Furthermore, the whole environment is extremely pleasing to the eye.


Glass gives you design flexibility

These extensions can be used in many ways. They are great for use in your kitchen, dining areas, office entrance, play room or just where you kick off your shoes and relax. You can take in the breathtaking views of nature whilst sitting in these total glass enclosures admiring your garden landscaping.
