VIVID Conservatory Roof – Queensland

VIVID Conservatory Roof – Bottum Up Blinds

Conservatories are an excellent addition to Australian homes, offering a stunning and practical space to appreciate the outdoor beauty throughout the year. However, Australia’s weather can be challenging, with scorching heat, frigid temperatures, and strong winds and hail. Therefore, selecting the appropriate conservatory roof is crucial to ensure your conservatory remains comfortable and usable throughout all seasons.

Types of VIVID Conservatory Roofs:

VIVID Glass Roofs:

Glass roofs are Australia’s most popular choice for conservatory roofs. They allow abundant natural light to flood, creating a bright, airy atmosphere. However, it’s essential to consider that glass roofs can become quite hot during summer and cold during winter.

VIVID Polycarbonate Roofs:

Polycarbonate roofs are an excellent choice for Aussie homes, offering a blend of affordability, durability, and practicality. Compared to glass roofs, polycarbonate roofs are more budget-friendly and less susceptible to damage from hailstorms, a common occurrence in Australia’s diverse weather conditions. While polycarbonate roofs may not transmit as much natural light as glass, they still allow ample sunlight to illuminate your living spaces. Additionally, modern polycarbonate roof designs minimize the risk of cloudiness over time, ensuring long-lasting clarity.

VIVID Solid Roofs:

Solid roofs are the most insulating type of roof for a conservatory. They are constructed from various materials, such as tiles or slate. Solid roofs effectively keep your conservatory cool during the summer and warm during the winter. However, they do not allow any natural light to enter.

Technical Information

Wind Resistance

The ability of an outdoor shade system to resist wind is measured by how well it can hold up to specific loads when subjected to simulated wind with positive or negative pressure. A comparison table with the Beaufort scale determines the relationship between the wind resistance class according to the EN 13561 standard and wind speed in kilometres per hour. The Beaufort scale categorizes winds based on their speed. Wind speed is measured in kilometres per hour (km/h) or knots using an anemometer approximately 10 meters above the ground.

Energy Saving (GTOT Value)

There’s a growing need for high-performing buildings that use minimal energy and rely on renewable sources. Solar shading is essential to control solar heat gain for summer comfort. The GTOT value measures how well a solar shield can maintain a comfortable temperature in direct sunlight compared to using glass alone.

Solar heat gain depends on the total solar energy transmittance (gtot), which varies based on the glazing and external shielding. The European product standards EN 13561:2015 and EN 14501 define five energy performance classes, as shown in the table below.
