PC Multiwall

PC – Polycarbonate (optical grade)

PC Multiwall

Cellular polycarbonate sheets make for light, impact-resistant glazing and roofing material. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. They also have good thermal insulation and light‑transmittance qualities, which renders them an excellent choice for greenhouses. Our standard selection includes sheets with UV protection on one or both sides. We also offer U and H profiles.
