Polycarbonate solution provides good acoustical insulation and maximise your outdoor living space and lifestyle. The advantage of polycarbonate roofing and awning is its high impact resistance being practically unbreakable in some instances as its material is much tougher than glass.
Polycarbonate roofing and awning is an easy and simple way to build the perfect look for your home and capable of lasting for many years without requiring maintenance. Trellises add a relaxed resort-like charm to any building. They are fitted with polycarbonate sheets which let in natural light while reflecting ultra-violet rays.
Design and Structure
Polycarbonate is a kind of thermoplastic polymers materials that can be used for Roofing, thus, commonly known as Polycarbonate Roof or Polycarbonate Roofing
Advantages of Polycarbonate
- Lightweight – Polycarbonate sheets are light and can don’t add unnecessary weight to your trellis roof. This makes it a great material for your trellis at your car porch, patio, balcony, garden, roof terrace and private enclosed spaces (PES).
- Virtually unbreakable – CDs and DVDs are made of polycarbonate as well. If you’ve ever tried to destroy an old CD of your old (and unwanted) memories, you’ll know what I mean.
- High impact resistance – That’s why we can drill holes in it without it breaking. This makes it a good material to work with as we can attach it to your trellis or pergola structure without it cracking.
- Light passes through it – There are see through options that allow light to pass through. This provides for natural light, and lower energy bills.
- It doesn’t discolour or fade easily – Who wants to spend time and money building a trellis only to have it look old within a year or two?
- It’s a great heat and sound insulator – Definitely less deafening in a thunderstorm than aluminium roofs.
Cons of Polycarbonate
There is but one characteristic of Polycarbonate that we think can be improved. Polycarbonate is not entirely scratch resistant. So if you’re thinking of using it where there’ll be lots of contact, you may find scratches appearing soon. However, when used as a trellis or pergola roof, the chances of it getting scratched are pretty low. So you can use it with peace of mind.
