Conservatory Polycarbonate Panels

Polycarbonate for Conservatories



Polycarbonate is an ideal material for conservatory roofs thanks to its strength, light weight, and cost-effectiveness. Polycarbonate roofing sheets with a clear finish also allow fantastic light ingress into the space below. This unique combination of benefits has made polycarbonate conservatory roofs incredibly popular among British homeowners for decades. When properly installed, a polycarbonate conservatory roof should last well over 10 years before needing repair or replacement.


Which colour polycarbonate sheet is best?

When choosing what colour polycarbonate is best for you roof the three points to considering are the light transmission, heat rejection and visual appearance.

Light transmission simply means how much light is let through by the sheets. Clear sheeting has the greatest light transmission (and clarity) which is why it tends to be most popular. Then Bronze has less and opal the least light transmission.

Bronze and opal sheets are opposites with bronze reducing sun glare and creating shader and opal sheets providing some heat rejection and a clean white glow. 


What are the standard sizes of polycarbonate?
Polycarbonate sheets come in thicknesses of 4mm, 6mm, 10mm, 16mm, 25mm, 32mm and 35mm. Polycarbonate roofing sheets are lighter weight and easier to handle than glass. They are structured for strength and insulation qualities and have more walls and cavities as the sheets get thicker.
