VULCAN Corrugated Clear Polycarbonate sheets can be used standalone or overlapped with matching metal roof panels, and are often chosen for its aesthetics and better reflective and refractive properties compared to standard solid flat sheets.
Corrugations are split into two subcategories, circular and angular corrugated profiles.
Circular corrugations such as ROMA and Mini profiles are great for areas which require indirect sunlight penetration. Clear polycarbonate sheets are the most common among greenhouse applications as the natural haze of polycarbonate plus the refractive properties of the corrugations prevent sunburn, while retaining all of the solar properties necessary to promote plant growth. Vulcan corrugated Clear polycarbonate sheets have great haze and refractive properties. Clear polycarbonate sheets also allow maximum solar transmittance.
Angular profiles such as TRIMDEK, GRECA, JEMPAL, PUMA and JAGUAR are normally used on industrial or commercial applications since they are designed to match metal profiles of the same pitch and depth, and normally spaced in between.
