Today’s architects create structures with different configurations. It is good that more and more building materials are to suit the needs of modern buildings with diverse spatial properties.
Take for example roofing materials. Traditional materials include terracotta tiles, natural slate, metal, wood, copper, zinc, concrete and asphalt tiles.
Today, architects and construction contractors have more choices. Some traditional materials have been renewed. You can find cool roofing system, architectural shingles (asphalt shingles with 3D design and construction) that look like wooden or slate shingles.
You can find metal shingles in shingles, tiles and slabs, composite shingles based on polymers, glass, acrylic, fiberglass, and polycarbonates. Most of these new roofing materials are stronger and more efficient. In addition, the construction industry is creating one demand for polycarbonate roofing sheets for their preeminent properties.
The polycarbonate roofing material is revolutionary. They are harder than glass or acrylic, but light, withstand extreme temperatures and are impact resistant. Polycarbonate has the form of single and multi-walled panels. In addition to being elastic and durable, polycarbonate resins are great for a variety of applications.
A polycarbonate sheet multi-wall, which some call double-walled polycarbonate, there are many benefits and applications. It is easy to work with, lightweight, weather resistant and has excellent light transmission properties.
The benefits of polycarbonate multi-wall panels
Multi-wall polycarbonate resins last longer and their various properties offer many benefits to contractors and building owners. They are lightweight and easy to install. While polycarbonates are lightweight, their durability is undisputed. Although naturally stiff, they are easy to handle and install. You can cut them in place with conventional tools. Polycarbonate sheet does not split or crack when cut, drilled or cut.
Excellent light transmittance. The light transmission properties of polycarbonate multi-wall is about 85%. This equates to less condensation. It diffuses light effectively, so greenhouse plants don’t get sunburned.
Save energy and heat. Multi-wall polycarbonate sheets hold the air between their walls, give it to you energy efficiency. This means about 50% energy savings by reducing heating costs.
Fire resistant. The strength of the multi-walled polycarbonate resin expands to protect against fire. The panels are not hazardous to humans and are effective in flammable places.
Flexible. If you have curved applications, don’t worry. Polycarbonates are flexible and can be cold-bent, without losing their inherent properties.
Dual-wall polycarbonate sheet applications
- Multi-wall polycarbonate sheet is ideal for greenhouses. They distribute heat evenly and provide excellent insulation. They protect plants from harmful UV rays but allow enough light to help them grow healthy.
- If you need privacy or extra space, you can use polycarbonate as room partitions. You can install them easily, providing durable, unbreakable and aesthetically pleasing panels.
- If you want to build a sturdier greenhouse that can withstand big storms, you can use polycarbonate as a stormproof sheet.
- Adding a skylight can save you on energy bills. With dual-wall polycarbonate panels, you will have a solid, unbreakable, impact-resistant, UV-resistant skylight effectively.
The benefits and applications of polycarbonate is too good to resist. You can even use them when building car parks, skywalks, and pergolas. It doesn’t stop there. Many station roofs, shopping malls and sports stadiums are now using them, because the advantages outweigh the cost of the material.
