Don't let material limitations compromise your design creativity.
polycarbonate sheet is designed to perform in a wide range of applications
and meets all
standard architectural specifications and codes.
Unsurpassed by any clear glazing product on the market, polycarbonate sheet
is hundreds of times stronger than plate glass and many times stronger than
acrylic. This tough, long lasting material offers attractive protection in
areas subject to high traffic,
vandalism or burglary. It even withstands natural forces like severe wind,
hail, and snow storms. In fact, polycarbonate sheet meets stringent state
mandates for hurricane resistant glazing materials.
Polycarbonate sheet is extremely ductile.
It can be cut on-site from flat sheet or cold-formed into curves that would
be impossible to construct with laminated glass or acrylic. Forget about
Performing and fabrication. With polycarbonate sheet, you can create cost
distinctive structures that feature dramatic expanses of curved glazing.
The unique combination of lightweight (half the weight of glass) and high
strength inherent in polycarbonate sheet allows designs that require less
structural support. Since Lexan sheet can be cut and cold-formed on-site,
time and money that would normally be dedicated to preinstallation
techniques like oven bending.
Polycarbonate sheet is much more durable than other material options. The
cost of replacement becomes a less immediate (and less costly) concern.
Polycarbonate sheet is a superior insulating material when compared to
equivalent thicknesses of glass. Double-glazing and overglazing offer even
more energy savings. Overglazing with a patterned grade of polycarbonate
sheet adds visual security
and enhances the appearance of industrial and commercial sites.
Light and Energy Transmission
By allowing the transmittance of up to 90 percent of solar energy and 88
percent of visible light, clear polycarbonate sheet is an excellent glazing
a wide range of applications where clarity is essential.
Lexan sheet is also available in gray
and bronze tints to help control heat gain, and provide a
variety of privacy patterns for obscure glazing requirements.
Think of all the places where you wish you could have used glass or acrylic
in your designs, but could not due to the environment, building location,
Now think of the demanding applications where glass and
acrylic have been tried and failed; schools, psychiatric facilities,
subways, bus shelters, etc.
These sites are increasing because of violence and vandalism. Add
applications where other plastics didn't rise to the challenge and your
list of failures grows long.
Now try polycarbonate sheet and turn failed designs into reality.
The family of polycarbonate sheet glazing
products offers superior durability, unmatched design flexibility, and
structural integrity that easily surpasses laminated glass and acrylic
considering total life cycle costs.
Polycarbonate sheet comes in several grades to suit your every performance
GP / 9034 polycarbonate sheet for general glazing and industrial
UV/SL Sign grade polycarbonate sheet for increased UV protection
AR / Margard polycarbonate sheet when abrasion resistance,weather
resistant, impact strength, and graffiti removal are essential.
