Self- Cleaning glass

An outer coating of titanium oxide is put on the surface of the glass. Titanium Oxide is a photocatalyst, meaning chemical reactions take place when the right kind of light hits it. The kind of light that normally triggers this reaction is ultraviolet light; it is the part of sunlight invisible to the human eye. The outer coating reacts with the UV light to break down dirt on the surface, it does this by breaking down carbon-based (organic dirt) grime making it easier for the rain to wash it away. This is extremely convenient as it means you do not have to wash it as much as regular glass, so this is definitely a godsend.

Anti-glare, reflective or tinted glass

This can be really useful for conservatories, which faces the sun for a majority of the time. During the height of summer the glare of the sun can be really intimidating, so having tinted, anti-glare or reflective glass can be really helpful, and not only that, having coloured tinted glass can leave a beautiful cast of light over your conservatory, which emphasises the modern element that glass itself already adds.
