Skylight and Clear Awnings

The Perfect Blend of Elegance & Functionality

Why Choose Acrylic and Polycarbonate Awnings?

When it comes to enhancing your outdoor space, acrylic and polycarbonate awnings stand out as top contenders. Let’s explore the benefits of each material:

What are the benifits of Acrylic and poly carbonate skylights and awnings?

1. Acrylic Awnings: Crystal Clarity and Lightweight Beauty

  • Unparalleled Clarity: Acrylic awnings allow sunlight to filter through with crystal-clear brilliance. If you value a bright and inviting atmosphere, acrylic is your go-to choice.
  • Lightweight: Acrylic is lightweight, making installation a breeze. It won’t burden your roof structure, making it ideal for delicate roofing systems.
  • Insulation: Acrylic provides excellent insulation properties, helping maintain a comfortable indoor climate.
  • Minimalistic Design: Acrylic’s clear or semi-transparent appearance ensures that your view remains unobstructed. It’s perfect for those who appreciate a minimalistic design.

2. Polycarbonate Awnings: Durability and Toughness

  • Indestructible Strength: Polycarbonate awnings are practically indestructible. They can withstand impacts that would take out their acrylic counterparts. For high-traffic areas, polycarbonate is the way to go.
  • Robust and Durable: Polycarbonate compensates for its slightly hazier appearance with robust strength. It’s an excellent choice for longevity and resilience.
  • Heat Reduction: Polycarbonate awnings incorporate Microcell technology, reducing heat transmission and keeping your space cooler.
  • Resistance to Elements: Polycarbonate withstands cold temperatures and heavy rainfall, ensuring it won’t deteriorate over time.

3. Common Benefits Shared by Both Materials

  • High Impact Resistance: Whether it’s hail or accidental bumps, both acrylic and polycarbonate awnings can handle it.
  • UV Protection: These materials are resistant to UV radiation, protecting your outdoor space and furniture.
  • Long Lifespan: Expect your awnings to last for years without losing their appeal.
  • Easy Installation: Both acrylic and polycarbonate are easy to work with, making installation hassle-free.
  • Low Maintenance: Minimal upkeep required—just occasional cleaning to maintain their clarity.
