Twin wall polycarbonate sheets

Twin wall polycarbonate sheets, also known as corflute polycarbonate, are a type of double-layered polycarbonate panel. They offer several advantages over solid polycarbonate panels being lighter in weight, more rigid, and more cost-effective. Polycarbonate twinwall are widely used in applications such as greenhouse panels, pergola roofing, pergola enclosures, pool enclosures, and more. These panels permit natural light transmission and provide effective heat insulation.

Excelite twin wall polycarbonate sheetings are versatile and suitable for a variety of applications, such as pergola roofing, pergola side enclosure, greenhouse. Two layers structure of polycarbonate, creating a tougher it's rigid that can be used for applications like barriers, partitions, or roofing material.

Features of Twinwall polycarbonate

  • Lightweight: Twinwall polycarbonate roofing is much lighter than solid flat polycarbonate, 10mm twin wall polycarbonate sheet has a weight of 1.7kg/sqm, whereas a 10mm flat polycarbonate sheet weighs 12kg/sqm, and a 10mm glass sheet has a weight of 24.93kg/sqm.
  • Rigidity: The rigidity of Polycarbonate twinwall is attributed to their unique structure, which consists of two layers of polycarbonate separated by air channels or walls.
  • Thermal Insulation: The air channels between the layers of polycarbonate act as insulation, providing good thermal properties. This makes twin-wall polycarbonate an excellent choice for applications like greenhouses, where temperature control is crucial.
  • Light Transmission: Twin wall polycarbonate sheets allow light to pass through while diffusing it, which can help protect plants from excessive sunlight. The diffused light also reduces the risk of hot spots which can burn the plants.
  • Affordability: Twin wall polycarbonate is more affordable than flat polycarbonate, making it an attractive option for the projects when a balance of cost and performance is desired.

Common applications for twin wall polycarbonate sheets include:

  • Greenhouses: The material's combination of light transmission and insulation properties makes it ideal for creating controlled environments for plant growth.
  • Pergola Roofing: Twin wall polycarbonate can be used to cover pergolas, providing shade and protection from the elements while allowing natural light to filter through.
  • Pergola Enclosure: When used for pergola enclosures, it offers protection from wind, rain, and insects while still providing visibility and natural light.
  • Pool Enclosures: Twin wall polycarbonate is often used to create enclosures around swimming pools, offering protection from weather and debris without sacrificing natural light.
  • Skylights: It can be used for skylights in commercial and residential buildings, bringing natural light into interior spaces.
  • Sound Barriers: In some cases, twin wall polycarbonate sheets are used as sound barriers along highways and other noisy areas.

Keep in mind that while twin wall polycarbonate offers many advantages, it may not be suitable for every application. Solid polycarbonate sheets are still preferred when maximum transparency or higher impact resistance is required. The choice between these materials should be based on the specific needs of your project.

Twin wall polycarbonate vs solid polycarbonate sheet

Twin wall polycarbonate and flat polycarbonate sheets are two different types of polycarbonate materials with distinct characteristics, and they are suitable for various applications. Here's a comparison between the two:

1, Structure: Twin wall polycarbonate consists of two layers of polycarbonate separated by air channels, creating a multi-wall design. This design provides thermo insulation properties. Solid throughout without any air channels. They are a single-layer material.

2, Weight: Twin wall polycarbonate is lighter in weight compared to flat polycarbonate, making it easier to handle and install. Flat polycarbonate weight is about 5-7 times heavier.

3, Rigidity: As rigid as solid polycarbonate, twin wall polycarbonate is still relatively rigid, offering good strength and stability. Twin wall sheets exhibit minimal sagging over time, even under their own weight or when subjected to external loads. It can go bigger span than flat polycarbonate.

4, Insulation: Twin wall polycarbonate provides excellent thermal insulation due to the air channels, making it suitable for applications where temperature control is important, such as greenhouses.

5, Cost friendly: Double layer polycarbonate sheet use much less material per sqm, so it's more cost-effective.

6, Light transmission:  Clear flat polycarbonate panels provide a glass-like appearance and can achieve 92% light transmission (LT), making it ideal for applications where clear vision is essential, such as in windows, skylights, or safety barriers.

Multi-wall polycarbonate panels offer a translucent appearance with a light transmission of around 85%, making them suitable for applications that prefer to diffused light.

7, UV Resistance: Both polycarbonate roofing materials have good UV rating, which makes them suitable for outdoor applications.

8, Strength: When comparing a 10mm corflute sheet with compact polycarbonate, it's clear that solid polycarbonate offers greater strength and durability. Solid flat polycarbonate is a better choice heavy-duty applications like pergola roofing, especially in Melbourne harsh weather.

Polycarbonate solid sheet greenhouse

Twin wall roofing, including corflute, often has a thinner top layer than solid polycarbonate. Over time and with exposure to the sun, this thinner top layer can be damaged by hails. Therefore, for a long-lasting and robust pergola roofing solution, solid polycarbonate is the preferred option.

The choice between twin wall and solid polycarbonate depends on the specific needs of your project. Talk to an expert today to discuss your specific application needs.

General

Polycarbonate is extremely strong and nearly unbreakable, making it suitable for applications like police shields, awnings, sunroom roofing, and greenhouses. These panels are resistant to various weather conditions and maintain their appearance for many years.

Polycarbonate sheets can be easily cut using a circular saw or a jigsaw. Circular saws are best for cutting larger lengths, while jigsaws require careful handling to ensure proper cuts.

Although polycarbonate sheets may change colour over time due to sun exposure, Excelite's UV-coated polycarbonate sheets maintain their colour longer.

Polycarbonate sheets require minimal maintenance. Gentle cleaning with warm soapy water and a soft cloth is typically sufficient. Avoid abrasive cleaners, brushes, or pressure washing, as these may damage the UV-resistant coating or scratch the sheets

Roofing

The best sheeting for a roof depends on the specific requirements, with multi-wall, solid, and corrugated polycarbonate sheets each offering unique benefits.

Although polycarbonate sheets are tough and durable, they should not be walked on. They can withstand many impacts, but might dent or scratch under the weight of a person. Additionally, their surfaces are slippery due to the UV-resistant film, posing a risk of slipping and injury.

Corrugated and twin wall polycarbonate sheets are typically the least expensive varieties. Despite the lower price, these sheets can endure Australia's harsh weather conditions, but selecting the wrong type may lead to more expenses in the long term.

Pergolas & Greenhouses

Excelite's popular glass-look polycarbonate flat roofing is an excellent choice for a pergola roof. It is easy to install, low-maintenance, and watertight, making it a great alternative to glass.

or a pergola enclosure with a glass-like appearance, use a 4-6mm thick solid polycarbonate sheet. Alternatively, use twin-wall polycarbonate panels for a more affordable, yet less transparent option.

Twin wall polycarbonate is ideal for greenhouse construction due to its insulating properties and minimal framing requirements. Excelite Softlite polycarbonate sheets are another excellent option for greenhouse materials, especially for tunnel greenhouses.
