Whereas conventional terraces with wooden pergolas and dark canopies used to make rooms gloomy, Schüco terrace roofs make rooms bright and flooded with light again. The timeless design of the transparent roof terraces allows them to be incorporated as an integral and attractive feature of any façade.
More light and space for a sense of well-being are not the only advantages of a Schüco conservatory. The large-area glass envelope works almost like a large storage container for solar heat, reducing the requirement for external heat supply through conventional heating systems. The difference between outside air temperature and the indoor temperature of a house with a conservatory is smaller than that for a house without a conservatory. This creates an ideal protective zone between the outdoor and indoor climate – the so-called buffer zone. This energy-saving effect works day and night – and even without direct sunshine.
In summer, things can really begin to heat up. With the appropriate solar shading systems, you can even enjoy spending time in the conservatory when it is hot.

The highest level of thermal insulation reduces energy costs, and simultaneously leads to a higher degree of air humidity, which then requires intensive ventilation. What is important above all is regular ventilation, so that the air in the room does not become too humid, and to avoid any mould growth on the walls. Roof ventilation windows ensure pleasant air exchange and prevent heat build-up on sunny days.
