So firstly, what are they?

Compact Polycarbonate sheets are the most premium and aesthetically pleasing roofing material available today. With a range of options and colours on offer, it is fast becoming the preferred choice of consumers Australia wide.


The main benefits..

Compact Polycarbonate is lightweight, has excellent weatherability and good abrasion resistance. It is also virtually unbreakable, having 250 times the impact of glass and 30 times that of acrylic. This makes it a lighter and cheaper alternative to a glass roof.


Why it’s perfect for your outdoor entertaining area…

Retaining light without the heat can be done with polycarbonates. They are designed and manufactured to strip off the UV and IR rays, leaving the visible spectrum light to filter through.

They also provide a better airflow and maximise the amount of light allowed through, creating a feeling of spaciousness.
