Twinwall Polycarbonate Roofing
Twinwall polycarbonate sheets have been designed for a wide variety of applications but are commonly used for roofing and glazing projects. Twinwall and multiwall polycarbonate sheeting is popular for roofing as it’s easy to install and virtually unbreakable, as well as providing some insulation.
What are twinwall polycarbonate roofing sheets?
Twin wall polycarbonate roofing sheets are used in roofing structures for applications such as garden shelters, carports, gazebos and pergolas, and smoking shelters. Polycarbonate roofing provides stability and durability, while still being lightweight and easy to work with. One of the main advantages of working with polycarbonate sheets is that they are incredibly impact resistant, so you can be sure that they’ll be long-lasting and remain in great condition.
Types of twinwall polycarbonate roofing sheets
Twinwall polycarbonate sheets are available in all sizes, including 4mm twin-wall, 6mm twin-wall and 10mm twin-wall. 4mm twin wall polycarbonate sheet is best suited to greenhouse glazing and roofing – it blocks virtually all UV radiation and won’t yellow with age. If you’re looking to use twinwall sheets for carports or sheds, we advise opting for a 10mm thickness, while 25mm and 35mm are better suited to conservatory roofs where you have a larger surface area and need more rigidity.
Why use twinwall polycarbonate roofing sheets?
Polycarbonate roofing is easy to cut with just a hand saw, circular saw or even just a sharp Stanley knife, so it’s ideal for those looking to do the work themselves rather than hiring in external labourers. Twinwall sheets are quicker and easier to fit than traditional glazing, and they last longer than traditional corrugated sheets so they’re better value for money. They’re also available in large panels and in a range of thicknesses, so it’s easy to tailor the product to suit your needs. The other benefit of using these roofing sheets is that they let a lot of light pass through them, so they’re well suited to conservatories or gazebos where you want to maximise the amount of sunlight you’re getting.
