The Lantern is the ultimate in conservatory design and can be attached to your property or built as a stand-alone outbuilding. For those with the right budget, a lantern conservatory style makes a fantastic statement of grandeur and elegance.
The original conservatory style, often referred to as an Orangery, is now brought up-to-date with modern window and conservatory roof technology. The 2-tiered ‘wedding cake’ effect adds a new dimension to your conservatory and the extra ceiling height adds to the feeling of light and space. Lanterns are typically suited to period properties of Victorian and Edwardian vintage where relatively plain conservatories might not match the grandeur of the existing building.
The lantern conservatory is a style that is often chosen to house swimming pools, orangeries or for larger conservatories. Whether your lantern conservatory comes in brick and stone or classic glass style, it never fails to conjure up the glories of opulent living from an altogether different age.
Our systems are ideal for the construction of a lantern style conservatory or orangery. Every single component is made to the highest standards of quality and function. As well as offering enhanced security, our profiles are designed to be insulating and easy to maintain. We offer a vast choice of colours, styles and glazing so that you can create the contemporary orangery or traditional conservatory of your dreams.
Southern Glazing Systems offer a range of stylish double and triple glazed PVCu energy efficient window, door and conservatory systems. PVCu profiles, or frames, are constructed with steel reinforcement inside and are designed to minimise the transfer of heat from the inside of your property to the outside.

If you need to replace your old windows or doors, you will find our high quality PVCu systems are a real revelation! The latest engineering technology combined with precision manufacturing, ensure that these windows offer superb controllable ventilation, and eliminate draughts.

Window Energy Ratings (WER’s) were introduced to provide consumers with a clear and simple comparison between the various window products. The system follows a similar rainbow label that you might be familiar with on white goods, so you can easily understand the level of thermal performance of new windows using categories of A B C D E of Energy Efficiency. The NEW A+ Window Energy Rating is achievable with some of our glazing options.
We also offer the next stage in energy efficiency: Triple Glazing. Our Triple Glazing now offers a 40% energy saving over our current A-Rated Double Glazing.
Double glazing is well known for its ability to reduce outdoor noise levels and new windows can help bring down the noise levels in your home by as much as a half, making your home quiet and serene, even if you live close to main roads or the airport.
A more comfortable home
Energy-efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots.
Energy-efficient glazing reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows when vented.
By using less fuel, you’ll generate less of the carbon dioxide that leads to global warming – typically, 680kg a year.
Our PVCu profiles have the ability to create a carbon neutral dwelling by adding triple glazing.
The brands we offer are designed and manufactured with great effort to ensure that the life cycle of the products have minimal impact on the environment. Thanks to recent advances in recycling, PVC-U windows and doors are the first choice material for sustainability too.
