Tips to choose Glass Roofing

There are many things to consider when choosing a glass roofing. Most importantly. it must be safe, secure and energy efficient. A large factor in ensuring that these needs are met is in the thickness of the panes that make up your unit.

Whether it is being installed to the roof as a fixed, opening, or Eco model, or if you are adding a Walk On unit to your basement or terrace, there are a few factors to bear in mind to make certain that the glass is dense enough for its purpose.

The importance of thickness

Like windows, roof light performance is covered by building regulations and to comply must meet a minimum U value of 1.8 W/m2K. If the panes are not well insulated, you will lose heat from your home in the colder months, and gain it in the warmer ones. Thicker glass will perform better when it comes to the flow of heat, which will save your money on energy bills for central heating or air conditioning.

On top of this, peace of mind is granted from the security of density. A poor performing unit can act as an additional entry point for thieves or a weak spot for environmental damage.

The measurements

When shopping around for the glass roofing for your home, it is likely you will come across various measurements for the glass. We Xtremearrow will provide you with the optimum measurements as standard so never be afraid to installing the glass roofing with us.

Glazing and glass type

The type of glazing is also important to consider. Almost all products on the market are DGU (double glazed units) as single glazing would simply not do the job of keeping your home secure and warding away the elements.

In fixed and opening glass roofing 4mm thick glass is just not sufficient and you should insist on 6mm in any glazed roofing product. The vast majority of glass roofing on the market rely on 2 toughened glass panes, however at Xtremearrow, we feel an outer panel of toughened and inner panel of laminated glass offers significant security benefits.

Depending on the product, the structure and make up of the glass will be slightly different to suit its purpose, On Xtremearrow models the glass roofing are made to measure with double or triple glazing, while we offered various glazing options from clear glass. Again, the outer panel will be toughened, with a laminated inner one to reduce the chance of damage.

All of our glass roofing are made with high criteria specifications as standard. If you want to know more about the glass we use, or have any other questions before choosing your product, call us today on +603-8066 8330 or take a look at our glass roofing pages for more information.

Between polycarbonate roofing and glass roofing


If you’ve been considering investing in roofing for your property, you will need to decide whether yours should have glass roofing or polycarbonate roofing. As well as being incredibly functional, they are also wonderfully visually pleasing, serving as a stunning addition to any home. Let’s take a look at the features and benefits of the two…


Polycarbonate roofing

  • Good insulator but can be noisy when it rains which some customers really like and others not so.
  • Light weight versatile material
  • Cheaper cost
  • Scratches, discolors and ends to attract algae far more than glass, and is also more difficult to clean.
  • Polycarbonate sheeting is made to withstand high wind conditions and designed to have impact resistance

Glass roofing

  • The cost will be substantially more than polycarbonate but it will be more rewarding all round.
  • Does not reduce light in the room, rather provides more light
  • Requires regular cleaning as dirt is noticed very easily on glass.
  • Heavy material thus requires a strong frame
  • The transparency of the glass for panoramic view
