PLEASE HELP!!! Can't make complete sense of this and know that I read an excellent thread which discussed this but cannot find it now. We are having an extension built. There will be lots of glass and we are south facing. I am getting my doors custom made but want to ask them to put solar controlled glass in but is there any other company other than pilkington? I am looking for something generic that (I hope) will be cheaper.

Sorry I don't know, but thought someone should respond to your thread! Maybe speak to a conservatory salesperson about glass options?
