Flat Polycarbonate Sheet

A clear, transparent glazing material which provides 200 times more impact resistance than glass at only half the weight.

Polycarbonate flat sheet is a highly versatile and lightweight material combining many benefits over traditional glazing and fabrication alternatives. It offers an unequalled combination of clarity, strength, durability, design freedom, thermal and fire resistance.

Polycarbonate sheet can be cold curved, fabricated, thermoformed, hot bent and bonded, making it an ideal product for barrel vault roofing, rooflights, and as a superior glazing solution. Its high performance features make it an exceptional product for safety glazing, protective screening and visors.

In addition to clear polycarbonate sheet, we also supply longlife sheet which offers UV protection making it ideal for exterior applications and abrasion resistance sheet which has a hard coat surface and offers abrasion and chemical resistance.
