Advantages of Polycarbonate Awning
Choosing this type of fixed awning means going for savings as they are very low in maintenance and can last for many years. Here are some of the benefits you will be getting with a polycarbonate awning:
- Unbeatable strength
As previously mentioned, polycarbonate is virtually indestructible. This is actually used in the construction of bulletproof windows and police shields due to its high impact resistance. This means that even if a large tree branch falls on your awning, the people under it will remain safe and your awning will be damage-free. In addition, polycarbonate has low flammability rate.
- UV protection
A polycarbonate awning has great optical properties that allow it to let enough sunlight and heat in while blocking damaging ultraviolet rays. Likewise, it works well to diffuse the light that comes into a room so you won’t have to tilt your screen when using your computer in order to find the right angle.
It is one-third the weight of acrylic and one-sixth the weight of glass. As a result, they are easily transported and installation is simple and less time consuming.
- High temperature resistance
Another good property of a polycarbonate is its high resistance to heat and cold. Being exposed to all types of weather all year long, this is the kind of quality you would want your awning to have. It can last for numerous years without showing any signs of fading, yellowing, or discoloration.
- Design flexibility
Compared to wood, glass, and metal, polycarbonate is more flexible and so can be cut, measured, and formed to a specified radius to create arched or dome awnings.
These awnings can come in a range of styles such as flat, pitched, dome, and bullnose. There are also many colors to choose from including clear, opal, bronze, blue, and green.
Expect them to last between 10-15 years.
