Twin-Wall Polycarbonate Sheet

Product Description

Twin-Wall Polycarbonate Sheet offers a rectangular insulation space inside to reduce thermal energy transfer. Meantime, it creates a stronger, lighter weight and more impact resistance structure. Some people call it a “double-wall polycarbonate sheet”.

UVPLASTIC offers standard and S-Line twin wall polycarbonate sheet, the thickness ranges from 4mm to 12mm. Clear and tinted colors are available.

With the co-extruded UV protective layer, twin wall polycarbonate sheet can be used exterior, it offers great weatherability even under intensive ultraviolet rays, the lifespan is more than 10 years or 15 years.

Twin wall polycarbonate sheets are used widely for the commercial greenhouse, mini-greenhouse, sunroom, garden Restaurant, etc.

Unlike glass, twin wall polycarbonate is very strong, it is 200 times stronger than glass, meantime, it offers lighter weight than other plastic. But you need to reduce the distance between the mounting points.

UVPLASTIC developed S-type twin wall polycarbonate sheets to increase the strength when curving the twin wall polycarbonate sheet, please the following picture.

It depends on the applications. If you use the twin wall polycarbonate sheet for roofing, we don’t recommend 4mm twin-wall or solid polycarbonate sheets for roofing application, because 4mm twin wall polycarbonate isn’t strong enough. And four wall polycarbonate sheet is also another good choice. Solid polycarbonate sheet is too heavy and you need to use stronger supporting frames, it will be high cost.

The more than 6mm multiwall polycarbonate sheets and corrugated polycarbonate sheets will be the right choice.

Don’t thermoform the twin wall polycarbonate sheet, if you have no experience in this field. UVPLASTIC is not only the leading manufacturer of polycarbonate sheets but also the expert at polycarbonate fabrication service, we can help clients with thermoforming twin wall polycarbonate sheets.

Yes, 4mm twin-wall polycarbonate sheet is the best material for a garden greenhouse, because it is lightweight and durable. For a cold location, 6mm twin-wall polycarbonate sheet will be better.

Normally, 8mm twin-wall polycarbonate sheet is a great material for agriculture greenhouse. But 6mm twin wall polycarbonate sheets are used for a smaller greenhouse, and 10mm twin wall polycarbonate sheets are for greenhouse in a colder place.

Twin wall polycarbonate is one of the durable twinwall plastic sheets, the lifespan is more than 10 years or 15 years. The warranty is 10 years, the longest warranty is 15 years with clients’ requirements.

4mm thickness twin wall polycarbonate is suitable for the roof of the garden greenhouse. 6mm, 8mm, and 10mm thickness of twin wall polycarbonate are best material for the roof of commercial greenhouse. Click HERE for more detail.

Corrugated polycarbonate and twin wall polycarbonate offer different performance, corrugated polycarbonate offers excellent light transmittance, twin wall polycarbonate offers good heat transmission. But both are great material of greenhouse roofing.

UVPLASTIC is a leading manufacturer of twin wall polycarbonate sheets in China, we are looking for the distributor and reseller for twin wall polycarbonate sheet in global market. Click HERE to know the detail of our distributor policy.
