The following table shows a comparison between the leading fabrics that are available for conservatory roof applications. Figures stated are from the fabric manufacturers* and tests conducted by Oxford Brookes University to ISO 9050.
Light Fastness is measured on the Blue Wool scale (1-8) following ISO 105 B02, 1 = Poor, 8 = Excellent.
* The Painted woods have a higher light fastness (7) than stained or natural woods (5 or 6). White is the optimum colour to maximise reflectivity; dark colours absorb. Reflectivity figures for light colour painted woven woods fall between the figures for natural and white (detailed figures are not available).
EACH FABRIC HAS BEEN SPECIALLY SELECTED FOR CONSERVATORY APPLICATIONS, WHICH REQUIRE THE OPTIMUM QUALITY FOR RESISTANCE TO INTENSE HEAT & ULTRA-VIOLET RAYS.
