No more washing dirt and pollen from the tabletops. No more worrying about inclement weather interrupting dinner plans or a family gathering. A bug-free environment that is inviting and relaxing. And at night, the translucent polycarbonate roof lets in the magic of the moonlight.

DIY Tip of the Month

We do not recommend nailing polycarbonate panels. Polycarbonate expands in hot weather and contracts in cold. Instead, pre-drill and screw panels in place to allow for panel expansion and contraction with temperature changes.

101 Uses of Polycarbonate: #12 Carport Roofing

carportA polycarbonate carport roof offers high-performance protection from the snow, rain, leaves, and harmful UV rays. Compared to metal roofing options, polycarbonate panels will not only provide protection from the elements but will also let the natural light in.

Both strong and durable, polycarbonate panels are virtually unbreakable. Lightweight polycarbonate panels are an ideal material for a carport cover and require no special tools to install. Polycarbonate panels are UV protected for long lasting clarity and will look good for years to come. A smart choice for a DIY carport project!

Multiwall Polycarbonate for Sign and Display

wall_artWith a broad range of structures, colors, and coatings, multiwall polycarbonate offers design professionals a multitude of options for print and display applications. The main advantages of choosing polycarbonate over other materials include structural durability, outstanding toughness, light in weight, works well in a wide range of temperatures, and resistant to ultraviolet rays.

Multiwall polycarbonate is an excellent candidate for all types of signage and point of purchase items, whether screen, digital, or sub-surface printed, painted, or decorated with vinyl graphics. Printable on both sides, polycarbonate is an interesting material for 3-dimensional printing. Reverse printing also protects the graphics from fading and scratches.

Popular applications include:

  • Indoor Signage: Easy to handle and fabricate, multiwall polycarbonate can be cut into a variety of custom shapes and sizes. A perfect option for room designation, warning and safety signs, operator instructions, branding and product communications.
  • Outdoor Signage: Warranted against yellowing and breakage, outdoor signs constructed out of multiwall polycarbonate are extremely sturdy and able to withstand the degrading effects of UV exposure, weather extremes, and heavy winds.
  • Point of Purchase & Tradeshow Displays: Light weight and highly flexible, multiwall polycarbonate panels can be easily fabricated, cold-formed, and installed to framing on-site using standard tools. Backlight for dramatic results.
  • Wall & Room Dividers: Translucent polycarbonate panels provide privacy while still letting light into a space, brightening up a dark room. Multiwall polycarbonate panels also offer good sound insulation, reducing unwanted noise.

To determine whether multiwall polycarbonate will work for you next sign, display, or point-of-sale project, please contact our highly knowledgeable customer service team for more information at 888.602.4441 or click here to send an email.
