SUNGLAZE® Polycarbonate Roofing & Glazing Systems
Smart design, elegant appearance, versatility, low maintenance and sustainable performance
SUNGLAZE is a solid polycarbonate roofing system that offers smart design, elegant appearance, versatility, low maintenance and sustainable performance for a variety of architectural challenges. The polycarbonate roofing system is a popular glazing solution for an array of structures including commercial, architectural, and residential buildings. SUNGLAZE is comprised of flat solid polycarbonate roofing panels with edges made to fit a proprietary standing seam glazing system, and is engineered to allow for wide spans with increased loading capacity. It can be specified in various lengths to match different structures, including flat and curved designs.

LET VISITORS ENJOY THE SUNSHINE WHILE KEEPING THEM COOL & COMFORTABLE
Architects and developers around the world are working to create environments that are bright, enjoyable and comfortable—a combination that can be difficult to achieve while also maintaining energy efficiency and sustainability.
Palram offers four different types of polycarbonate glazing products including flat solid sheets, multi-wall sheets, single-layer corrugated sheet, and complete panel systems. Our Project Support Engineers can help you evaluate a variety of glazing options with the goal of meeting your design aspirations, your efficiency and sustainability goals, and your budgetary and performance needs.
If you are an architect, engineer or builder and need assistance evaluating your design and developing an installation method and process, contact us to learn more about our Architectural Project Support Center.
A Complete Architectural System
The main benefits of a SUNGLAZE standing seam polycarbonate roofing system are that it provides superior water tightness and it is easier and faster to install. Unlike standard sheets, SUNGLAZE is supplied together with all installation accessories, including interlocking aluminum profiles (base and cap, cap plugs, screws, end closures) and architectural elements. Specified accessories for each project, such as wall-roof detail, gutter detail, ridge cap detail, side flashings and double-glazing system profiles, provide solutions for a wide range of installation challenges.
All the accessories and elements are provided as a complete system, so you can create the perfect polycarbonate canopy, solid polycarbonate roof, awning, curtain wall, or any other glazing and polycarbonate roof system.
SUNGLAZE SYSTEM COMPONENTS
The SUNGLAZE system is based on flat-solid polycarbonate panels with corrugated edges, and a comprehensive complete set of components that enable versatility of design.
With the suitable system components, SUNGLAZE can be applied as a double-glazing curtain wall, single glazing façade, a curved, single glazed canopy, or as a designed skylight.
SUNGLAZE™ Panel Sizing, Thickness and Load Bearing
There are varying sizes and thicknesses in which SUNGLAZE panels can be purchased. The recommended thickness of the SUNGLAZE polycarbonate roof system is based on factors such as wind and snow load, as well as the spans between structural elements such as purlins and rafters. The higher the impact we expect the solid polycarbonate roofing panels to withstand, the thicker it should be specified, and the higher the expected loads the polycarbonate roof system is expected to bear, the smaller the spans between purlins should be. The length of the system's panels is limited only by transportation and logistics. There are creative loading solutions that enable transporting SUNGLAZE panels which are more than twice as long as a standard 40ft container.
