What Makes Polycarbonate Sheets Popular In India?


Polycarbonate roofing sheets have been observing great popularity in India in recent years for all kinds of transparent construction purposes. Whether it is greenhouses, conservatories, pergolas, awnings, skylights, carports, or indoor partitions, polycarbonate has found immense usage in all such constructive purposes. If you are also looking for such constructions, polycarbonate sheets can prove to be the ideal choice. In fact, polycarbonate is replacing other traditional materials like glass, fiberglass, and acrylic. This is because it has multiple benefits over other materials, some of which are mentioned below.


Polycarbonate is five times stronger and more durable than glass, which is why it has become very popular for usage in all kinds of residential and commercial applications. However, this does not mean that it is heavy in weight and rigid. In spite of its durability, polycarbonate is light in weight and flexible too.


Polycarbonates, in spite of being strong and durable, are also very light in weight. This property makes them easy to carry, without the need of any additional helping hands or machinery. Also, they are very easy to install, thus not requiring any kind of professional assistance. Speaking of installation, when you need to cut or drill the sheets, polycarbonate can be easily cut with the help of sharp-toothed scissors or circular saws, without the fear of breakage or damage, or production of any harmless and toxic shards.


Now is the age of pomp and show, and if you are building something, you definitely want to show it off in front of others. Polycarbonates are available in a variety of thicknesses and colours. Also, they are highly flexible while maintaining their durability and strength. So, when you use polycarbonates for building your structure, you can design it in a variety of shapes and colours, which you otherwise cannot while using glass, because glass is available as transparent white, and is also very fragile; thus cannot be bent or modified. In this way, you can enhance the overall appeal factor of your structure.
