If we draw a comparison between polycarbonate and glass, we find out that the former, with its 78% transparency, can boast superior features in terms of energy saving, safety and practicality. The versatility of polycarbonate makes it extremely suitable for civil and industrial building: in fact, panels can be inserted in all those structures that require a reduced weight, brightness and high resistance to atmospheric conditions. Specific filters enable the material to trap UV radiation that, though invisible to the naked eye, has highly harmful effects on wood and paints. Furthermore, the particular patented joint and the specific technical features of SEPLUX panels make them suitable for an innumerable range of applications.
THE ADVANTAGES offered by SEP polycarbonate panels
- Light weight, that make their use and installation easy and practical, as well as reducing transportation costs.
- Available in different shades, as well as in the traditional versions, opal and transparent.
- Around 78% transparency, which results in high light transmittance.
- The panel size can be adapted to the customer's needs.
- Suitable for inclined roofs, vertical closures, industrial windows (both fixed and with opening), sheds, transparent areas combined with sandwich panels.
- 10-year guarantee against UV-induced deterioration.
- 10 year guarantee against hail damage.
- The patented UNI for SepLux 40, 40-5PX, 40-9P system ensures perfect and constant watertightness thanks to the tongue and groove E4 (UNI 7979) joint. Even though no silicone, nails and sealants are used, airtightness is guaranteed (UNI-V1 certification.)
- High breaking strength; load and crack resistance, due to the special alveolar structure.
- High fire and UV radiation resistance; service temperature from -40 to +120°C.
- Reaction to fire: Euroclass B-s1,d0.
- High insulation value, that allows a 13-17%* reduction of energy costs, in comparison to a similar structure in glass, in conformity with UNI 10344 prescriptions on energy saving.
