Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheets are generally used for conservatory and lean-to roofs. They are lightweight and strong, with excellent insulating properties.
At PVC Cladding we offer a large range of competitively priced pre-cut sheets but if required we can also cut sheets to your exact specifications.
Our Polycarbonate Glazing Bar options come in either timber supported or self-supported options, depending upon which best suits your particular installation and budget. We also offer a large range of edge finishing trims and eaves beams to enable the full construction of a completely finished roof from scratch.
Solid Polycarbonate Sheets are used most commonly in commercial glazing applications. They are virtually unbreakable, so are often installed in areas where either safety or potential vandalism is a key consideration.
Door Panel Blanks are used in the manufacture of PVC Doors and side infill panels by the double glazing industry. They come in a range of sizes and different shades of white.
We recommend that you use 25mm, 32mm or 35mm Polycarbonate Sheets for conservatory roof glazing. By using thicker polycarbonate glazing, this allows to gain optimum U values and insulation levels.
Most greenhouses use 4mm thick glazing – please call us to place an order.
We recommend using our Solarguard sheet. This is an innovative polycarbonate with a grey metallic surface on Opal. It is designed to limit heat build-up within the conservatory/room and by deflecting solar radiation it can reduce solar heat gain through the roof by up to 50% compared to conventional material.
Polycarbonate sheets can be cut with a circular saw (using a very fine blade) or a jig saw. If possible, it is better to cut a few sheets at a time to reduce vibration. Sheets can also be cut by hand using tin snips or a utility knife.
We recommend using warm water with a mild household detergent. This should be sufficient to clean the sheets. Wipe off any remaining dirt with a soft cloth and wash again. NEVER use a solvent-based cleaner. AVOID using sponges or brushes that can scratch the surface of the sheet.
Polycarbonate Sheets should always be installed with the branded film facing up (outside).
