Solid, Multiwall and Twinwall Polycarbonate Sheets
Polycarbonate sheets are a great choice of material for use on any clear roofing or glazing application where high light transmission and a lightweight structure is required. Extruded from high quality resin which is reckoned to be approximately 200 times stronger than glass of the same thickness, these virtually unbreakable clear roofing sheets are available in many thicknesses and sheet size options to suit a wide range of applications.

What is the difference between multiwall and solid polycarbonate?
- Axgard® solid polycarbonate sheets are a single layer product which looks similar to glass but is around half the weight and is made from virtually unbreakable resin making it incredibly strong and ideal for many glazing applications.
- Axiome® multiwall polycarbonate sheets are manufactured with multiple layers and vertical supports which make a box like structure. This provides an even lighter weight structure with excellently enhanced spanning capabilities as box sections make a very rigid product, whilst still allowing a good level of light transmission.
