Ballistic polycarbonate product line for a variety of applications

The PALSHIELD ballistic polycarbonate product line is available with different levels of ballistics and forced-entry protection to meet a variety of application needs.

Due to their layered, laminated structure, PALSHIELD sheets can withstand both physical attacks and multi-shot ballistic assaults by absorbing impact energy without shattering or spalling. 

PALSHIELD also features an abrasion-resistant coating, which ensures long-term clarity for applications in accessible public areas.

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.

Are there customized sizes of BULLETPROOF sheets?

Yes, BULLETPROOF is available in custom sheets of up to four square meters.

What level of protection against forced entry can I expect from BULLETPROOF?

BULLETPROOF offers forced entry protection equivalent to ASTM F1915-05 Security Grade Level 1-3 — a standard developed to measure impact-resistant fittings in correctional facilities.

What is the protection level for ballistic?

For bullets, BULLETPROOF offers UL 752 protection up to level 6 — protection against automatic weapons firing pistol-caliber ammunition such as an Uzi sub-machine gun chambered in 9 mm.

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

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.
