Technically advanced surfaces for lasting protection and enduring clarity

PALGARD offers all the performance features of the PALSUN polycarbonate sheets including high impact resistance and excellent UV protection.
In addition, PALGARD also features an advanced surface coating that provides superior abrasion and chemical resistance, which means that it remains pristine in applications with high levels of wear and tear such as architectural glazing, public space installations, manufacturing environments, highway sound barriers and more.

PALGARD is also ideal for protective shielding or safety glazing for machinery, exhibits or displays; and can be used in vehicular glazing, for example in side or rear windows and windshields on ATVs, golf carts or other vehicles.

Show FAQs
How do I specify the required thickness of the polycarbonate glazing material?

The recommended thickness of the polycarbonate glazing material is based on factors such as wind & snow load, panel size, and boundary conditions. Visit the Palram website for access to calculators that can help you determine the recommended thickness.

Can flat solid polycarbonate be installed in a similar manner to glass in curtain wall applications?

PALSUN can be installed with standard curtain wall aluminum glazing profiles and EPDM gaskets (similar to glass), or spider fixing spaced with approximately 400 mm centers. However, it cannot be used with structural silicone and PALGARD (PALSUN) with anti-scratch coating is the recommended substitute in this case.

What is the minimum allowed bending radius of polycarbonate?

The minimum allowed bending radius of the polycarbonate is 200 times the thickness of the sheet, for example, a 2 mm sheet has a minimum 400 mm bending radius.

How do I design the secondary steel support spacings for roofing/siding?

Palram created specific loading tables for each product. Please visit our website and download the specific catalog.

How do I clean the polycarbonate?
  • Never use abrasive or high alkaline cleaners on any Palram polycarbonate products.
  • Do not leave cleaners on Palram polycarbonate for extended periods of time. Rinse immediately with cold, clean water.
  • Do not apply cleaners in direct sunlight.
  • Never use sharp objects, squeegees or razors on polycarbonate.
  • Do not clean with gasoline.
  • Always practice safety first and never step directly on a polycarbonate panel.
  • Always test cleaners in a small inconspicuous area prior to cleaning the entire panel to ensure against adverse results.
  • Avoid allowing the pressure washer spray tip to come too close to the panel. Pressure washers often have enough pressure at the spray tip to penetrate or tear the panel.
  • Avoid dry cleaning as sand and dust particles clinging to the exterior of the panels may scratch the surface.
If polycarbonate sheets block UV radiation, why is there a “UV-side” that faces outwards?

Polycarbonate sheets block UV radiation by absorbing it. This absorption mechanism can cause degradation to the material, and to prevent this from happening, the sheet is coated with a special material.

For this reason, it is recommended that the sheets are installed with the marked UV protective layer facing outward. Moreover, most of the sheets are only protected on the side that is clearly marked as such.

What is the difference between multiwall and solid polycarbonate?

Multiwall is a multi-cell structured sheet. Due to its multi-cell structure, it has superior thermal insulation and low area weight.

How do I install flat solid or multiwall polycarbonate sheets as skylights?

Flat solid or multiwall polycarbonate sheets need to be installed with designated aluminum profiles when used as a skylight.
