Lightweight, versatile and cost-effective. Polycarbonate sheets are fast becoming the first choice glass alternative for manufacturing and installation companies, this is not only due the fact that this material can lower overall project costs, but also because of the sheer number of properties it offers, such as its incredible impact resistance, high heat resistance and flexibility. Just to name a few.
Whilst maintaining nearly equal optical transparency, Polycarbonate glazing solutions offer over 200 times the strength of traditional glass for the same applications, and in terms of fabrications, are only limited by a designer's imagination as they can be curved and formed with ease.
Roofing is one of the most common applications for glazing with Polycarbonate Sheets.
However, it is by no means it’s only suitable usage. Essentially, Polycarbonate Sheets can be used in almost any application that requires a protective layer of material.
These applications include -
As mentioned above, not only do Polycarbonate Sheets offer exceptional strength and durability, this virtually shatter proof material offers superior protection in high foot traffic areas. They also provide exceptional weather and UV protection whilst retaining ease of installation without the requirement of specialist tools in the large majority of applications.
Environmentally friendly, Polycarbonate Sheets are 100% recyclable, meaning less impact on the environment and a more sustainable material for building projects.
Alongside the aforementioned properties, Polycarbonate Sheets are so lightweight compared to glass panels, that when used in applications such as glazing, your structure doesn’t have to be built to support such a large amount of weight, which in turn helps to increase the speed and efficiency of your project.
