What are polycarbonate roofing sheets? - Their advantage, disadvantages, dimensions, & price.

 1. What are polycarbonate roofing sheets?



Polycarbonates are thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures. The sheets made of polycarbonate are strong & durable having impact resistance properties.

The transparent sheets made of polycarbonates have better light transmission capabilities as equivalent to glass.


2. What are the advantages & disadvantages of polycarbonate roofing sheets?

Advantages:

1. Polycarbonate sheets have higher impact resistance properties.

2. Strong & durable compared to PVC or UPVC sheets.

3. High light transmission capabilities as similar to glass.

Transparent polycarbonate sheets.


4.  Lighter in weight. when compared to glass.

5. Polycarbonate sheets are easier to handle & install.

6. The multiwall sheets are good in blocking sound & act as sound-proof.

7. They let the sunlight in but block the ultraviolet radiations from entering.

8. They are flexible & can be easily designed for domes or curved structures.

  9.  Polycarbonate sheets have good weather resistance properties.

10. Polycarbonate sheets have aesthetic look & they enhance the architectural look of the structures.


Disadvantages:

1. They are not scratch proof & hence they are surface-coated.

2. They are slightly costlier than other similar types of roofing sheets.


3.  What is the price of polycarbonate roofing sheets?

The price of the polycarbonate sheets depends upon the thickness, type, opacity, brand, color, etc. The price of the sheet starts at INR 35/- per sqft. & goes up to 400/- sq ft.

The general purpose sheets used for roofing sheds, canopy, housetop, etc. come in an ideal range of INR 45/- sq ft. to 150/- sq ft.


4. What are the available dimensions of polycarbonate roofing sheets?

The generally available size of the polycarbonate sheets is,

    Width 👉 1220mm. to 2100mm.

    Thickness 👉 1mm. to 35mm.

    Length 👉 1220 mm to 12200mm. & above.

The twin-wall or multiwall polycarbonate sheets fall in a higher dimensional range.
