Before polycarbonate was invented, architects depended upon glass to bring that striking visual effect to their designs. But glass, for all its beauty, has several serious drawbacks: it’s heavy; it’s not easy to work with; and it’s unable to withstand punishment. That makes it a weak defense when attacked by the punishing forces of weather. The development of polycarbonate was a game-changer for architects and the construction industry. Now there is a product that is strong and attractive, easy to work with and easy to install, a product that is designed to withstand all the different forms of weather: pounding rain, heavy snow, damaging hail, and high winds. For architects planning to add polycarbonate skylight systems to a structure, this is welcome news. For their customers, it’s an assurance that weather won’t interfere with the wellbeing of their workplace or home.
The Versatility Of Polycarbonate Skylight Systems
Polycarbonate comes in two different forms: solid polycarbonate sheets, which look like flat glass sheeting; and multiwall polycarbonate, which has hollow chambers. While the appearance of the two forms is different, there is no difference in strength. Polycarbonate is strong no matter what form it takes.
Polycarbonate Skylight System Strength
Weather is no friend to a building, but don’t worry that a skylight system won’t be able to withstand the brutal punishment of the elements. Danpal’s polycarbonate skylight systems are built to be strong. Polycarbonate is an impressively durable building material and the skylights that use it are strong as well as watertight. Polycarbonate can withstand a great range in temperature; it’s shatterproof; and it’s lightweight. Weather can do a lot, but it can’t beat polycarbonate. The polycarbonate skylight system is a window to the sky above that lets you enjoy nature in its awesome might.
