The Benefits of Polycarbonate

The polycarbonate group of thermoplastic polymers are an attractive alternative to regular glazing materials. Lightweight, yet robust; impact and weather resistant, yet great at light transmission too, polycarbonate is available in curved or flat sheet panels with many multi-wall thicknesses and coating options for different applications. These coatings together with solar-reflective inserts make light-weight polycarbonate a real contender when it comes to the control of UV too.

  • Light weight
  • Excellent impact resistance
  • Class 1 BS 476/7 Fire rating
  • Weather resistant
  • Blocks 99% of UV radiation
  • Superb thermal insulation with "U" values as low as 1.2

Polycarbonate Replacement Roofs & Roofing Installation Service

Do you have a small lean-to shed or covered way with an aging polycarbonate roof? Or a large-scale polycarbonate 'greenhouse' structure covering your swimming pool which needs attention? Falcon Windows Ipswich Polycarbonates Division can help there too.

Even though polycarbonate sheeting has a considerable life-span, it may become brittle over time. What's more, polycarbonate technologies are constantly improving, delivering even better more efficient products which maybe better suited to your specific needs. If you have a structure with polycarbonate roofing sheets which need replacing, Falcon Windows can quickly survey your site and not only give a quotation, but share genuine advice about latest polycarbonate replacement products, their pros and cons and how sound the structure itself is for the renovation or refurbishment.

We can advise on solutions to meet you needs - a swimming pool building will want to keep the heat in to warm the water perhaps, whereas it might be desirable for a garden shed to keep cooler inside or, if it is located near trees, to be easy to clean and strong enough to take knocks from falling conkers!

Falcon Windows have the experience to help you consider design, the most appropriate polycarbonate roofing materials, fittings and accessories, all with your budget in mind - and we can carry out the polycarbonate replacement roof job for you too .
