Polycarbonate roof panels have become popular among gardeners, homeowners and investors due an array of advantages such as high heat resistance; anti-UV protection,high impact resistance; fire retardant and highlight transparency. Polycarbonates are mainly used in China by auto industries; to make electroplate mirror; in electronic industry; for screen printing, graphic overlay and LCD display.
When you are choosing the best polycarbonate sheet panels in China, you should consider the following key factors:
- Polycarbonate (PC) panel suppliers; always opt for reputable and trustworthy suppliers who offer a warranty of between 10 and 15 years.
- Extra protection; all polycarbonates sheets are treated to meet certain criteria. The most common types of treatment include UV light protection, condensation and anti-static protection.
- Nature of the PC; there are quite a number of panels which have been manufactured to meet certain specifications such multi-wall or tinted polycarbonates.
- Purpose/use; all polycarbonate sheets have been designed to serve specific purpose such as in the construction of greenhouses, skylights and roofs.
The best polycarbonate roof panels in China features the following main products:
Colored polycarbonate sheets; these panels come in different tints which determine the amount of light and heat energy entering a room. For instance, a clear polycarbonate sheet allows more light to pass through than the blue polycarbonate sheets. They are available in different colors such as clear, yellow, red, bronze and green. A good example is the softlite polycarbonate corrugated sheet which allows 58% light transmission. This is a sure way of regulating the temperature of the interior sections.
UV protection; polycarbonate panels in China is protected against UV light which degrades the sheet and is also responsible for the yellow color which reduces their productivity and performance. Furthermore, some are also protected against condensation and weathering.
Insulation; the multi-wall polycarbonate sheets are commonly used during cold seasons or in applications where the cost of controlling temperature has to be controlled. These sheets have air in between the layers which offer better insulation properties. The degree of insulation is determined in terms of the R-value of the PC sheet. A higher level of R determines high degree of insulation, thus; the temperature may drop too low when it is cold. On the other hand, it may not rise too high during summer.
Design; the best polycarbonate roofing panels in China comes in a wide range of design to meet different application requirements. Good examples are the prismatic, embossed, corrugated and matte polycarbonate sheets. Other advanced sheets such as the softlite polycarbonate corrugated sheets blends the features of polycarbonate embossed texture and polycarbonate corrugated structures. This results into special features which are desirable for a number of applications. These are both domestic and industrial applications which may require medium rigidity, excellent commercial value, lower freight costs, high impact resistance, 58% light transmission and excellent heat isolation.
Price vs. applications; polycarbonate roof panels from China can be used in virtually all applications; be it skylight or greenhouse construction. They are also cost effective as far as both the long-run and short-run costs are concerned.
