Polycarbonate Glazing

Polycarbonate glazing is a synthetic thermoplastic resin that is more durable than glass and half of the weight. Manufactured in sheets in addition to curved shapes, it can be used for windows, ceilings and walls.

Greenhouses are common places to find glazing. It’s lightweight, unbreakable and weather resistant, and blocks UV light.
