A polycarbonate covering system that offers smart design, elegant appearance, versatility, low maintenance and sustainable performance to various architectural challenges. The system incorporates proprietary standing-seam profiling and glazing that enable wide spans and high loading capacity. It can be specified in various lengths to match different structures, including flat and curved designs.

Easy to fasten; the panels are simply joined by an aluminium profile set that is enclosed at the ends.

Screws lock the system and fix it to the structure without any penetration through the panels. The cap-plug completes the assembly, covering the screw head and provides a smooth appearance from above.

Benefits:

  • Glass-like clear appearance.
  • Standing seam leak-proof performance.
  • Free thermal expansion.
  • Caulking and silicone free.
  • Withstanding high loads.
  • UV protection on one side.
  • Easy, fast and safe installation.
  • Minimal maintenance.

Applications:

  • Architectural projects.
  • Commercial and retail.
  • Sports venues roofing.
  • Covered walkways.
  • Open markets.
  • Service stations.
  • Entrances.
  • Pool covers.

The system is primarily defined by the panel thickness. All other components are selected to match this panel.

Options

Colour/ Finish:

Various options available, consult technical literature for details of light transmission, solar heat gain coefficient and shading coefficient.

- SolarSmart™ - Energy efficiency:

SolarSmart™ energy-efficient tints break the traditional ratio between light transmission and shading coefficient. By blocking Infrared energy that causes heat build-up, they transmit 'cool light' and reduce air-conditioning and lighting costs.
