Do you have corrugated fiberglass panels on a sunroom, sun parlor or solarium? In the 1960s and ‘70s, corrugated fiberglass panels were the popular choice for translucent roofing panels that let light into the room.
Fiberglass panels are fiber-reinforced plastic panels; and the plastic is typically an epoxy or resin that, over time, becomes less transparent and more brittle.
Ready for a modern solution that is stronger, lasts longer and is easier to install? Corrugated polycarbonate panels are the modern solution for the roof of a sunroom, sun parlor, covered porch, Florida room or other living space where you want to allow natural light from the sun. Our TUFTEX PolyCarb corrugated panels are widely used for these applications with outstanding results.
The TUFTEX PolyCarb line offers three different panels, each with its own benefits.
- TUFTEX PolyCarb Clear panels have the highest light transmission at 89% and are as clear as glass.
- TUFTEX PolyCarb Smoke panels allow 45% of the light to pass through and maintain high clarity that allows you to see the stars at night.
- TUFTEX PloyCarb Translucent White panels have 45% light transmission, but scatter the transmitted light to provide a soft, diffuse illumination.
All of the TUFTEX PolyCarb corrugated panels block 99% of UV radiation, so you and your furnishings are protected from the damaged caused by UV rays from the sun.
More detailed information about the light transmission for the TUFTEX PolyCarb panels is posted on the website.
TUFTEX PolyCarb corrugated panels are easy to install with common construction tools and our installation instructions.
