Facades and Curtain Walls Construction & Architecture
Façades and curtain walls are a popular application for polycarbonate panels, for both functional and aesthetic reasons. Polycarbonate panels are much stronger than glass, so they protect buildings from both vandalism and heavy impacts. These panels also insulate buildings while letting in daylight, thus saving on air conditioning, heating and lighting costs. At night, artificial illumination can create a stunning effect on the polycarbonate façade. Options include multi-wall, monolithic and corrugated panels, which come in a variety of transparencies and tints. Designers can select panels that are as clear as glass, translucent and light diffusing or completely opaque. Our polycarbonate façade systems grace the exteriors of many buildings, including commercial centers, sports venues, health and education facilities, and residential structures.
