Polycarbonate multiwall sheets can be used for a wide variety of applications:
skylights, roofing, curtain walls, office dividers, swimming pool enclosures, greenhouses, point-of-purchase, displays and signage.
Polycarbonate sheets have been used throughout Europe for many years because of its energy-saving properties.
It is mandatory in that part of the world to show the amount of energy saved regarding any construction.

The main advantages of multiwall polycarbonate are the following:

  • Lightweight
  • High-impact resistant
  • UV protected
  • Works well in a wide range of temperatures, and has excellent fire resistance.

Fields of interest:
1- Swimming Pools

4- Skyscrapers
5- Domes
6- Malls
7- Skylight
8- Walk ways
9- Villas and Houses
10- Advertising and Signage
11- .................more and more and more

Following are some examples of the variety of uses of polycarbonate multiwalls

Skylight application
The first example of the use of polycarbonate is an application for a skylight in an indoor Mall .
The requirement for this project was a large skylight where there was a wide distance between purling and
rafters. The material needed to be able to span the distance and be light in weight to reduce the cost of construction. It was also required that the material needed to have a high insulation factor and be resistant
to heavy snow and wind loads.

Roofing application
Another example of the use of polycarbonate was for Malls and industrial buildings in Cairo.
For such projects, the requirement was to maximize the amount of natural light inside the building while keeping the insulation value high and maintaining the appearance of the existing exterior walls.
The solution was using corrugated twin wall material that allows overlapping so that the two materials, the old and the new, fit perfectly. It allows a lot of light to go through these “windows” while keeping the high insulation. The easy installation saved the contractor about onethird of the labor costs that he would have had with alternative materials.

Ceiling application
Polycarbonate was also used in different projects of a decorative hanging ceiling .
The requirements for this project were lightweight material, easy installation, attractive appearance and cost-effectiveness.
The solution was to use a special polycarbonate system with battens and an aluminum connector on the top side which met all the requirements for the project.

Window application
Another example of the use of polycarbonate multiwall sheets is a window application in a manufacturing facility. The requirement for this was to allow as much light as possible in a very dark production facility without interrupting the work area and to keep the insulation factor high.
They also wanted the area covered by the polycarbonate to match as best as possible the color of the existing exterior wall. The solution was to use a polycarbonate “tongue and groove” system with one-meter-wide panels which allowed the constructor to follow the visual line of the building, and make the installation very simple. This allowed them to open small areas at a time without interrupting the work inside the building.

Greenhouse application
The requirement for a greenhouse facility project was an 8 mm polycarbonate material that was resistant to the ultraviolet light with high insulation. Their biggest product focus concern for the project was saving energy.
The solution was to use “8 mm polycarbonate four-layer” sheets to achieve the high insulation value, and the panels are warranted for UV protection for at least 10 years.

Lightweight panel application
Another example is the use of polycarbonate multiwall sheets as point-of-purchase (P-O-P) displays and signage. The requirement for this application was a lightweight panel that could carry the printed vinyl film as an alternative to the traditionally used material. It needed to be cut-to-size in the field and easily installed to the framing. The material would also be backlit for an attractive appearance.
The solution was to use a 6 mm diffused opal twin-wall sheet.

Signage application
Another application example is an elaborate storefront that wanted a vehicle to market their store with a very large screen for advertising. They wanted to create a curtain with as little metal as possible that could withstand heavy winds, with UV protection on both sides.
The solution was to use an 8 mm batten system with a plastic connector to meet these requirements.

Digital printing application
A final example was a project for a printing company. The requirement was to digitally print directly on the sheets and later take the huge picture/display apart for easy storage and shipping. The solution for this application was a 10mm “tongue and groove” system in different colors which allowed digital printing to
be done on the sheets when they were connected one to the other. After the printing, they were able to take it apart for shipping and storage and to reconnect as needed. The result was to be able to put the sheets together without seeing any interruption in the picture.
