How To Fix Polycarbonate Sheets To A Greenhouse
See our step by step guide on how to fix polycarbonate sheets to your greenhouse.
Tough as steel, clear as glass and easy to work with - is this the perfect glazing product? Solid polycarbonate sheet is virtually unbreakable, making it perfect for use in public areas, particularly in situations prone to vandalism. With its high UV resistance and wide range of service temperatures this product is used in a wide variety of applications. With a huge strength-to-weight ratio solid polycarbonate is easy to handle and can be cold bent or machined as required.
Polycarbonate sheets are lightweight yet strong, allowing for easy installation and a long service life.
Impact resistance is very high, this material is highly unlikely to be damages by falling debris. The thicker the sheet the stronger it is due to the additional structural walls within each sheet. Polycarbonate also offers superior insulation qualities, keeping heat inside the building and saving precious energy.
Sheets are co-extruded to include a UV Protection layer - polycarbonate is a very safe and environmentally friendly material. Optical Clarity is also high (it varies between colour finishes with clear being the highest and Solarguard the lowest).
Most of our sheet thicknesses are available in five different colour options - Clear, Bronze, Opal, Bronze Opal and Solarguard, which has excellent heat retention properties. The table below shows the availability of each colour by sheet thickness. For more information, please visit our Guides and Tips section where you can watch a video demonstrating the various colour options available.
Because of its light weight, polycarbonate is an easy material to work with - it can easily be cut and drilled. Sheets can be installed using either our Rafter Supported system, where glazing bars are fixed to traditional timber bearers, or using the self-support system where no supporting timbers are required.
If you would like your sheets cut to an exact size, simply select the next largest sheet and add the exact sizes when you input your notes in the delivery section when placing your order. Alternatively you can telephone us or email us with your exact sizes.
