This new video is posted on the SMARTGLASS® website at and at 2:39 minutes long, visually show the change in state of the conservatory roof glass from clear at either ends of the day to a dynamically darkened tint during the middle of the day, where outside temperatures touched 30 degrees in June.

During the early and latter parts of the day, however, this advanced glass technology offers a 60% light transmission, approaching that of a standard IGU, along with an impressive G-value of 34%. Morley Glass & Glazing shares international industry best practice » » MORLEY GLASS & Glazing played host to a delegation from ScreenLine® integral blind systems manufacturer, Pellini SpA, in an international knowledge- sharing initiative last month. The two businesses have a long relationship of sharing best business practises, and share the ethos of design excellence combined with outstanding product quality. Morley Glass & Glazing’s Uni-Blinds® are the most popular sealed units featuring Pellini’s ScreenLine® integral blinds in the UK. Visiting from their headquarters in Codogno in northern Italy, Pellini brought with them Qfort, Romania’s largest manufacturer of uPVC windows and glass. Operating from a modern production facility, with a total area of 13.000 sqm and €200m turnover, Qfort is currently planning an expansion into the integral blinds market, and knew it would benefit from a visit to Morley Glass & Glazing. During their visit, the teams heard from Morley MD Ian Short who said: “Morley’s industry- leading 10-day delivery promise, second-to-none customer service and the sheer amount of passion and enthusiasm our staff have for providing the best possible products all play a part in what makes our business model so successful.” C L E A RV I E W-U K .
