Polycarbonate Roofing System
Polycarbonate is the most popular glazing material chosen for conservatory roofs as it is lightweight, durable and exceptionally strong – up to 200 times stronger than glass and virtually shatterproof. All polycarbonates work to lessen the glare and heat from the sun to ensure that your conservatory can be comfortable all year round.
Polycarbonate is available in a wide range of specifications, colours and thicknesses, to suit your budget, your chosen conservatory colour and the position and orientation of the conservatory.
The range benefits from:
- Testing to Class 1 Spread of Flame Protection
- 10 year warranty for light transmission and breakage
- Superb thermal efficiency and strength due to the 5 and 6 wall construction
Polyspan Optimum is a new material currently supplied in 25mm thickness. It offers market leading solar control properties, good thermal performance and light transmission, all combined with an attractive colour choice of blue or grey. A standard range of polycarbonates is also available in either 25mm or 35mm thickness, with a colour choice of clear, bronze, opal, bronze/opal and solarguard. All are designed to reduce glare and minimise solar heat gain. Bronze/Opal gives a bright internal appearance even on a dull day, reduces solar heat gain and provides privacy. Solarguard limits the potential for heat build-up within the conservatory, whilst allowing light to enter the roof, deflecting solar radiation and reducing solar heat gain by up to 50%, when compared with conventional polycarbonates.
