Where to use polycarbonate sheeting



4mm Polycarbonate Uses

This thickness of sheeting is very popular with greenhouses, as it provides a more affordable and safe alternative to using glass for greenhouse glazing.
 

10mm Polycarbonate Uses

This thickness is used for projects that require a thicker, sturdier solution. This typically includes usage with carports, lean to roofs, canopies and the like.
 

16mm Polycarbonate Uses

Again this thickness is used for the same as the 10mm sheet, along with usage in conservatories.
 

25mm and 35mm Polycarbonate Uses

The thickest poly we supply are generally used for building conservatories. They can be used for the construction of a new conservatory, or to repair an existing panel(s).
