Widest range of flat polycarbonate roof panels, glazing, and sign & display solutions

Often used in place of glass for its significantly higher durability & lower weight, PALSUN offers extraordinary impact resistance and options that range from clear to shaded–in a variety of light transmissions, with or without diffusion to fit any project. Palram’s advanced SolarSmart™ tints offer the full power of selective solar control technology in a polycarbonate sheet.

Virtually unbreakable and easily formable, PALSUN is often used as vehicle shields, safety & security glazing, architectural roofing, machine guards, sound barriers, and many other industrial applications. High impact strength, machinability, and excellent ink adhesion make PALSUN uniquely suited for digital prints, thermoformed signs, and backlit and illuminated signage.

Millions of square feet of our general purpose and co-extruded UV protected sheets are installed around the globe.
