The Original Polycarbonate
Solar Grade Polycarbonate Structured Sheet (PCSS) is a tough,
light weight, insulating glazing sheet extruded from high performance
polycarbonate. It's many advantages make Polygal PCSS an attractive,
budget-minded alternative for a wide variety of exterior glazing
applications, including skylights and roof windows, atria, sports
halls, industrial plants, pool enclosures, greenhouses,
solar collectors, canopies, window
renovations and many more.
Unbreakable. Superior toughness offers greater protection against
vandalism and hail damage, as well as breakage during shipping and
installation. Impact strength tested at 200 times that of glass, eight
times that of acrylic.
U-values comparable to insulating glass mean fuel savings of up to
Ultra Light Weight. The
hollow-core structure uses 80% less material than an equal thickness
of solid glazing, weighs 1/6 as much as glass, 1/3 as much as acrylic.
Results in lighter structures and reduced labor and handling costs.
Flame Retardant. Melts without
igniting. Will not support combustion or spread flames. CC-1 Fire
Rating per ASTM D635.
Guaranteed Weather Resistant.
Patented co-extruded UV-stabilized exterior layer provides high
resistance to yellowing, backed by a 10-year non-prorated warranty
against discoloration and breakage.* Maintains mechanical properties
from -40° F to +248°
Flexible. Cold forms into arches
on site, with radii as short as 3' 5" (1/4" thickness) to 14' 9" (1 "
thickness).Bends to a radius of 175 times the thickness.
Works Like Wood. Installs flat
or flexed. User-friendly panels can be cut, sawed, drilled, nailed or
screwed into place without splitting or cracking.
Low Cost. Polygal's low material
cost and ease of installation combine to deliver overall installed
costs which are typically a fraction of those of comparable glass
Polygal offers the widest variety of construction configurations,
styles, colors and sizes of PCSS in the industry. The Polygal
proprietary line of polycarbonate profile systems and accessories are
available at 1/3 the cost of aluminum profile systems.
