Makrolon Multiwall is a
polycarbonate glazing system, suitable for residential, commercial
or industrial roofing and cladding applications.
Both sides of the Makrolon Multiwall
sheet have a co-extruded UV barrier which provides protection from
99.9% of harmful UV radiation, giving superior resistance to
outdoor weathering. Made from Makrolon polycarbonate
resin, Makrolon Multiwall ensures high impact strength,
clarity and excellent weather resistance.
Makrolon Multiwall applications
include pergolas, patios, carports, verandahs, skylights, gazebos,
sunrooms or pool covers, shopping centres, sports complexes,
screens, walls or greenhouse applications.
Use of glazing helps to minimise the heat
transference from the sun's UV rays, while still allowing light
through. This reduces the need for energy consuming methods
of lighting and cooling.
