The application of PC sheet for making canopy

In the home terrace, bus stations, crosswalks and stop exit channels, colorful canopy made of PC hollow sheet can be seen everywhere. What is the advantage of this material? By what does it overcome materials such as glass? Why is it so popular? Let’s delve into the advantages of PC sheet.

The unique advantages
Impact resistance
Mildew and snow resistant Saining hollow panel has good impact resistance, which is 300 times that of ordinary glass, 30 times that of plexiglass, and 20 times that of tempered glass. It will not crack or break when hammered with a 3kg hammer. PC hollow panel canopy with ultra high impact strength can resist from hail, snow pressure, and even falling objects from high altitude, thereby effectively protecting the safety of property and personnel.

Rich color and bright appearance
PC hollow board has various colors including transparent, grass green, blue, milky white, tawny and other conventional colors. Saining provides color customization service. The choice of a variety of colors for the balcony canopy provides a bright appearance, making it easier to meet the needs of designers, and ensure that the canopy shape stay gorgeous and colorful.

High light transmittance
Hollow polycarbonate sheet has the light transmittance of 11-80%, which not only ensures sufficient sunlight, but also improve appearance. Moreover, light transmittance of the PC sheet can be adjusted by changing the color of sheet. For underground parking lot exit canopy, the PC hollow panel with a lower light transmittance should be chosen to give our eye some time to adapt to the bright light outside and avoid dizziness.

Heat insulation

The heat transfer coefficient of PC sheet is 1.1-4.1W/m2℃, which is lower than those of ordinary glass and other plastic. Moreover, its heat insulation effect is 7%-25% higher than that of glass of the same class. Even under hot sun exposure, the insides of the canopy stays cool.

Changeable shape

Durable PC hollow board is easy to bend, with the minimum bending radius 175 times that of the thickness. It can meet the shape need of the designer, and achieve convenient drainage.


Ultraviolet resistance
Outdoor canopy should be anti-ultraviolet, in order to prolong the service life of PC sheet. Therefore, PC hollow panel manufacturers will add anti-ultraviolet coating on the PC plate, which can resist the invasion of ultraviolet rays. PC hollow panel made through the auxiliary machine co-extruded is the most reliable, whose service life can reach more than 10 years.
