Polycarbonate sheets are rugged transparent panels that can be a good alternative to glass. Polycarbonate sheets have an incredible amount of impact resistance, and at sufficient thicknesses, as you’ve heard us say before on this blog, they can be used as bulletproof glass! That’s the type of strength we’re talking about when we talk about polycarbonate.
Among its other benefits, polycarbonate is flexible, flame resistant, weather resistant and, for its strength, almost unbelievably lightweight. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the most common uses for polycarbonate sheets for sale in Utah.
Polycarbonate sheets come in a variety of colors and levels of opacity. This means that polycarbonate sheeting can actually make a really great material for fencing. It’s a very popular material for building safety barriers around pools and other outdoor areas.
We mentioned in an earlier post how great acrylic sheets are for windows. Polycarbonate sheets are also quite good, and their use extends far beyond the home. A polycarbonate sheet makes a perfect material for a storefront window. It is rugged, virtually unbreakable and it provides farm more UV protection than either glass or acrylic, blocking up to 99.9 percent of all UV rays from incoming sunlight. This also has made polycarbonate a very common material in the production of eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Extending the idea of using polycarbonate as a storefront window, polycarbonate is strong enough to be used to create a glass wall, dividing your office or building a good view of the outdoors. You can also use polycarbonate for smaller DIY projects, such as building a greenhouse. Additionally, you can use polycarbonate to build soundproof walls. For example, if you were going to add a music recording studio to your basement, you could build the booth out of polycarbonate.
Those great transparent skyways you see in cities these days are usually made of steel and polycarbonate. Obviously, this isn’t a DIY project—if you’re curious, we’d guess the most common DIY use of polycarbonate sheeting is probably the greenhouse application mentioned briefly above—but polycarbonate is so strong, so rugged, that the vast majority of its uses are at a much larger industrial scale.
