How to Choose Polycarbonate Sheets
When choosing your polycarbonate roofing system, you need to consider three things: thickness, application and colour. For the thickness, you can refer to the chart we provided above to determine how thick your panel should be.
Next is the application. Generally, the bigger the space, the thicker your polycarbonate sheet should be. But you also need to consider how you’re planning to use the room.
If you’re going to spend lots of time in that space, you might want to provide heating for it. For heated spaces, you’ll need thicker polycarbonate sheets to prevent the heat from seeping out of the room.
When it comes to colour, think about how much light you want to shine through the roof. Clear sheets are best if you want maximum sunlight. But if you want to reduce the roof’s light and heat absorption, opt for grey or bronze panels.

Advantages of Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets
A sheet designed for every application
Because we understand the differing needs and requirements of our clients, we offer our polycarbonate sheets in a wide variety of colours and thicknesses. If you’re looking for a cost-effective alternative to glass panels, consider our 4 mm sheet, which is ideal for use within greenhouse installations. Providing the strength, durability and appearance of glass, the material is much cheaper and negates the chances of cracks and breakages.
For carports, pergolas and small lean-to conservatory roofs, try out our 10 mm and 16 mm polycarbonate sheets, which offer added strength and durability over glass without the cost and fragility. The benefits of polycarbonate roofing extend to its ease of maintenance, ability to withstand force from elements such as wind and rain, and their ability to block harmful UV rays, reducing temperatures and UV exposure in properties.
A durable and reliable roofing solution
As polycarbonate sheets are resistant to heat, snow, rain and sunlight, they can withstand the elements and provide long-lasting protection whether used as a conservatory roof or a greenhouse. Their unique ability to last for years without fading and discolouring is also a benefit to property owners looking for a cost-effective, reliable material for their homes.
