Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is a versatile material used extensively as a roof-light glazing. It is very resistant to impact, transmits high levels of light and is relatively easy to use. Polycarbonate is one of the newer plastics to be used in the construction industry around the world. MODEK uses the highest-grade polycarbonate polymer available and modern co-extrusion technology, ensuring a high-quality product and allowing for any transportable length of sheet to be made.

Profiled Polycarbonate matches profiled steel roof cladding and allows the sky to be viewed through a corrugated material, a feature popular with many designers. MODEK Polycarbonate comes in all the profile shapes generally used for non-translucent roofing and cladding in South Africa. That said, extrusion techniques allow a huge variety of profiles to be produced.
