Product Review – Polycarbonate Multiwall Sheets

Meccano’s Choice – Palram (Sunpal Multi)

Polycarbonate sheeting has come a long way & the current multi wall / multi cell glazing systems are definitely worth a look! With very clean modern aesthetics in a large range of colors, they provide advanced heat reduction / thermal insulation, excellent light transmission, extremely high durability, impact resistance & up to 99.9% UV protection, which also aids in a very long service life. The systems are both strong & light weight which opens a creative world of detailing for a variety of applications:

·       Covered Walkways ·       Industrial Glazing ·       Cladding
·       Pergolas ·       Aquatic Centres ·       Translucent walls
·       Awnings & Entrances ·       Open Markets ·       Parking structures
·       Shopping Centres ·       Screens / Partitions ·       Airports / Curved structures
·       Sports Complexes ·       Greenhouses ·       Rail / Public Shelters
