“Excellent Choice for Architectural Applications”
In today’s green building market, architects and builders are looking for products that meet the demand for environmentally friendly structures. LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™ polycarbonate sheets meet these regulatory requirements and contribute to LEED certification by optimizing energy performance, providing natural daylight, and utilizing recycled content.
A member of the LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™ product portfolio, the 25mm 5X structure sheet offers remarkable impact strength yet is light in weight, thus saving on installation costs. The multiwall construction of this sheet provides excellent thermal insulation properties which promotes energy conservation by reducing energy consumption. The 25mm 5X sheet is also UV protected on both sides. This proprietary surface treatment delivers long-term weather resistance and allows the sheet to maintain a high degree of light transmittance.
Betty Reed, Customer Relations Manager with AmeriLux, has been promoting the versatility of the multiwall polycarbonate sheet for many years. With a strong understanding of the product’s benefits and features, Betty assists project managers, architects, and systems integrators in finding effective alternative solutions to traditional glazing applications.
When asked what type of projects the 25mm 5X structure sheet is best suited for, Betty responded with this answer, “The 25mm 5X is used mostly for roofing, canopies, sunrooms, and skylights. With that being said, the product is very versatile. The Milhaus Circa project is a great example of a unique way to utilize this polycarbonate panel.”
As a roofing glazing, the LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™ 25mm 5X structure sheet offers outstanding impact performance over a wide temperature range (-40°C to +120°C) and is able to withstand the extremes of weather without breaking. It also has a good fire performance against many national fire codes and comes with a ten-year limited warranty covering discoloration, loss of light transmission, and loss of strength due to weathering.
“One of the key benefits of the 25mm 5X product is its strength. The X-structure allows for longer spans and needs less support than thinner gauge polycarbonate panels,” Betty said. “Another very important product feature is the Plus Warranty. There is only 2% loss of light transmission in 10 years, whereas most of the standard products in the market have at least 6% loss of LT in that same time period.”
AmeriLux stocks the LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™ 25mm 5X structure sheet in clear, bronze and opal. If you would like more information on this product, please visit our website or call 888.602.4441.
