Introduction and background

Clayton glass has an illustrious history of product development and innovation. Established for over 50 years, the company was one of the first in the UK to use the newly launched Pilkington K glass, and has closely followed the technical advances made in glass ever since.

From our county Durham base, we’ve got three factories, allequipped to cut and toughen the latest coated glasses required for the modern roof market, using of course warm edge technology, and argon gas filling as standard.

No surprise then, that Clayton Glass now finds itself at the very forefront of glass roof technology, and our brand SMARTGLASSTM, launched back in 2005 is now one of the most easily recognised and popular conservatory roof glasses nationally.

Our Product Range

Each of these products is further available As SMARTGLASS Plus + upgrade, offering reduced G value and  a centre pane U value of just 1.0. All SMARTGLASSTM units are naturally kitemarked to BS EN 12150 for impact safety  and BS EN 1279 for gas retention. The SMARTGLASSTM range consists of four colours of true self cleaning glasses  – Blue, Neutral, Aqua and Bronze, each coming as standard warm edge spacer, argon gas and a toughened soft coated inner pane.

For those at the very top end of the market we’ve also recently launched a new range of triple glazed roof products with an astonishing U Value of 0.7, in a unit that is at the same time able to reflect over 83% of solar energy.

Finally, being a true independent manufacturer we are able to source product from any of the major glass companies. Combined with our experience in the field and technical expertise, this means we can tailor make a roof to suit your individual circumstance – be that aesthetic, security, or thermal performance.


Pricing Structure

Our aim with pricing is simple – to keep things simple.  On a typical roof we quote on a ‘Net glass area’ basis, meaning you only pay for the physical square metreage of glass you order, regardless of shapes. Whilst there are a few small expectations for complex cut outs, fanholes, and oversize units we don’t charge additional energy nor minimum area charges.

Included in your roof rate is delivery to site, regardless of where you are in mainland UK. What’s more if we don’t deliver the roof in full on the day we confirmed, then you don’t pay a penny for the entire roof glass order – our 100% On Time In Full commitment*– the only such guarantee in the UK.
We deliver nationwide in 5 to 7 days as standard, with the optional extra service of 3-4 days where time is more critical. We offer a full suite of marketing support materials aimed at your end customer, including brochures, flyers, samples and show model support.
