Corrugated Sheets Polycarbonate Sheet

Benefits of Using Polycarbonate Corrugated Sheets as Parking Shelters

Polycarbonate Sheets If you are planning to build a parking shelter for your vehicle, you already know the dangers of parking your car outside. What you might not know, however, is the right material to use for your parking shelter. You need a material that can protect your valuable car from unwanted elements such as mud, wind, rain, and extreme weather conditions that can damage the car’s exterior while being cost-effective and easy to install. Polycarbonate corrugated sheets is that material!

Understanding Polycarbonate Corrugated Sheets

Polycarbonate corrugated sheets are a transparent roofing material made from a durable thermoplastic polymer. This material has exceptional strength and is lighter in weight than other materials. Polycarbonate is often compared with acrylic in terms of material characteristics, but polycarbonate has greater strength, flexibility, and impact resistance than acrylic.

Polycarbonate sheeting is molded into a corrugated pattern when used for building applications. This corrugated structure adds rigidity and strength to the sheets, prevents water accumulation, and allows for flexibility and easy bending during installation.

The composition of polycarbonate corrugated sheets allows for high impact resistance, UV protection, and excellent light transmission to allow ample natural light inside the sheltered area.

Benefits of Using Polycarbonate Corrugated Sheets for Parking Shelters

Let’s explore the advantages of corrugated polycarbonate sheets when used for parking shelters.

Durability and Strength

Polycarbonate is resistant to impact and extreme weather conditions, meaning it will not rust or corrode. Heavy rains, sunlight, snow, ice, and hail cannot discolour or weaken it. It will remain intact for years to come.

UV Protection and Weather Resistance

High-quality polycarbonate sheets come with a UV coating on one or two sides, which prevents the sheet from turning yellow and protects your car from harmful UV rays.

Light Transmission and Visibility

Polycarbonate can provide up to 89% light transmission, guaranteeing ample natural light transmission. You typically do not need artificial lighting in the shelter during the day. Both pedestrians and drivers can see clearly. A well-lit parking shelter is less likely to be burgled or vandalized.

Design Flexibility and Aesthetics

Polycarbonate sheets are a versatile material that can be easily molded, installed, and coloured to match an existing design.

Heat Insulation and Energy Efficiency

Polycarbonate corrugated sheets have excellent heat insulation properties. This will help you trap heat in and keep moisture out. This will help your garage stay warmer for longer, especially if you live in a cold climate like Canada.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Polycarbonate corrugated sheets are lightweight and flexible, making them easy to bend, shape and install. The best part is polycarbonate requires low maintenance when compared to other materials.

Cost-Effectiveness and Long-Term Value

Polycarbonate corrugated sheets are generally more affordable than other materials. Their lower cost makes them an attractive option for parking shelter construction. The heat insulation properties of polycarbonate corrugated sheets contribute to energy savings.

Safety Considerations

Let’s take a look at the safety benefits of polycarbonate corrugated sheets when used for parking shelters.

Fire Resistance and Safety Standards

Polycarbonate is resistant to fire; in fact, it has a fire rating of B1, which means it complies with fire safety standards in parking shelters. Polycarbonate is self-extinguishing, so in the event of a fire in the parking area, there is a reduced risk of fire spread in parking areas.

Impact Resistance and Security

One would think polycarbonate’s light weight means it will not be strong, but that is false. Polycarbonate is lightweight but also very strong, durable, and impact resistant. This makes it highly effective in protecting parked vehicles from accidental damage caused by external factors such as hail, flying debris, or intentional acts of vandalism, making it difficult to break through and can delay trespassers, buying time for help to arrive.
