When it comes to natural light, World Of Metals Polycarbonate, fiber sheets stand out as an ideal roofing solution as they offer the best of both worlds. They come in transparent, semi-transparent and opaque in a range of colors and tints; and allow almost exactly the same amount of natural light into a structure as glass and considerably more than fiberglass. Polycarbonate is also more durable than glass and fiberglass.
Polycarbonate and fiber sheet is extremely robust, lightweight with glass-like transparency and impact resistant – even at low temperatures. It also has high dimensional stability and is easily moulded, yet displays excellent heat resistance with a glass transition temperature of up to 148ºC.
Polycarbonate roofing panels look simply stunning and offer some hard-to-beat advantages over other roofing choices as well including

Polycarbonate sheets are composed of durable thermoplastic material that offers superior impact resistance and transparency, while fiber sheets consist of reinforced fibers such as fiberglass embedded within a resin matrix. Polycarbonate sheets typically feature clear or translucent appearance while fiber sheets usually remain opaque; in addition, polycarbonate offers greater UV resistance while fiber offers more strength and rigidity.
Both polycarbonate and fiber sheets are built to withstand extreme weather conditions. Polycarbonate sheets, in particular, are known for their outstanding weather resistance against UV radiation, high temperatures and heavy rainfall. Fiber sheets like fiberglass sheets have also proven resilient against harsh weather conditions including strong winds, rain or even hail storms; making them suitable for outdoor applications in various climates.
Polycarbonate sheets can be seen used for applications including skylights, greenhouse panels, canopies and partitions as well as safety glazing or architectural cladding. Signage, safety glazing or architectural cladding are other uses for these versatile sheets while fiber sheets, such as fiberglass sheets, can be seen used on roofing or wall cladding projects as well as automotive parts or boats that require high strength durability for their structures.
Polycarbonate sheets have limited inherent insulation properties, however they can be combined with insulation materials or multi-wall structures to increase thermal insulation. Fiber sheets such as fiberglass are typically utilized more for their structural strength rather than thermal performance purposes – additional materials may be required to achieve maximum thermal performance in building applications.
