AmeriLux | Frequently Asked Polycarbonate Question

Q: In the case of a fire, what would happen to a polycarbonate sheet?

A: Like any plastic, a polycarbonate sheet will burn but it will burn at a very slow rate. Self-extinguishing when removed from the flame source.

Polycarbonate sheets have good fire behavior characteristics. Their flammability rate is low and they do not contribute significantly to the spread of a fire nor do they release toxic fumes.

Polycarbonate sheets receive high fire performance ratings, meeting the requirements of stringent fire-performance building codes and standards.

Because of their high fire resistance, polycarbonate sheets are a recommended choice for glazing applications in school, hospitals, and other public venues.

Kalahari Pocono Resort

“Natural Light Creates an Outdoor Atmosphere”

The Kalahari Resort in the Poconos recently earned the title “America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark” with the completion of an 110,000 sq. ft. expansion.

The waterpark offers guests a tropical feel even when the outdoor temperatures are plummeting and snow is falling. The abundant daylighting is provided by three skylights, two large translucent roofs, three glass clearstories and two high glass walls.

Two of the three skylights are large (50’ x 50’) pyramid style structures glazed with CoverLite® 25mm Triplewall panels. Lighter, easier to install, and more cost effective, polycarbonate is often used in waterpark or pool enclosure glazing applications. Click here to read full article.
