Polycarbonate is a popular choice of material for rooflights and here’s the top reasons why people choose this option:
Clear light transmission
Polycarbonate is naturally transparent, allowing high levels of clarity and the same light transmission as glass
It’s a tough material, very durable with exceptional impact strength
Polycarbonate can be manufactured with a tint for those who would like less light or require more privacy
Clear for longer
Materials like polycarbonate are less likely to become discoloured over time than some other materials meaning the light clarity will last much longer
Polycarbonate rooflights are extremely long lasting when handled and maintained correctly
Thermal performance can be enhanced
Whilst not as naturally thermal as glass, polycarbonate can be made to increase thermal performance
All of our roof lights meet Building Regulations in regards to fire-resistant properties but polycarbonate is a naturally fire-resistant material, accepting a lot of heat exposure.
