Can corrugated sheets be curved?
Yes. Corrugated sheets can be cold-curved to create arched shapes. It’s important to follow the relevant Palram specifications for minimum radius in cold-curving, which can be found in the Installation Instructions of the relevant sheets. In addition, corrugated sheets should be arched so that the corrugations themselves are curved lengthwise.
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.
Can the percentage of light transmission be controlled? I need a lot of light but I need it to be diffused.
Palram offers various LT% parameters – from 0% to 90%. In addition, we offer a color called a “diffuser” that allows 85% of the light in while diffusing it by 100%. The result is a light-transmitting panel that is not transparent but is highly translucent.
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…
