Our clear solid polycarbonate sheet is available in a range of thicknesses from 3mm up to 12mm. It has double sided UV protection and is over 200 times stronger than the equivalent thickness of standard float glass, making it virtually unbreakable and able to withstand accidental impacts and determined acts of vandalism.
Solid polycarbonate is very light in weight, making it easy to handle and transport. It has a good light transmission and is an excellent choice for low level glazing in schools and other public buildings. It has good fire behaviour characteristics and receives high ratings in several major European fire performance tests. It achieves a class 1Y rating to BS476 Part 7 surface spread of flame.
We can also supply an alternative to Georgian Wired glass in our Birchwood GW Georgian Wired Effect Polycarbonate. This innovative product mimics the appearance of Georgian Wired glass, but has all the benefits of polycarbonate, being lightweight and virtually unbreakable.
