Description

SUNTUF is a corrugated polycarbonate sheet for architectural, industrial, agricultural, and DIY applications, including skylights/ rooflights, sidelights, and complete corrugated polycarbonate roofing and cladding solutions. Weighing half the weight of glass, SUNTUF corrugated sheets also offer multiple advantages over traditional alternatives: up to 20 times greater impact resistance, the highest light transmission rates, the lowest yellowing index, the highest load rating, and the highest resistance to wind uplift. These properties confirmed in accredited laboratory testing and in installations around the world since 1984, make SUNTUF corrugated polycarbonate roofing an optimal solution.


SUNTUF polycarbonate skylights/rooflights and corrugated polycarbonate sheets are available in hundreds of profiles and match all standard metal profiles. MetalMatch™ technology gives an almost unlimited ability to customize new solutions, and design a tailor-made corrugated profile for structures.


SUJNTUF’s full line of installation accessories and instructions enables weather-tight fit and long-term performance.

Performance requirements

-

Light transmission

Clear: Transmits up to 90% natural daylight, resulting in high lighting within the structure.

Opaque: These colours transmit very little to no light.

Transparent: Low haze colours offering high clarity. Breeze and Smart colours offer advanced heat blocking that reduces heat build-up while allowing a clear view through the sheet.

Translucent: White Opal transmits 24–45% visible light with high light dispersion, produces mild and even lighting within the structure. Diffuser transmits 85% visible light with complete light dispersion, produces diffused and consistent lighting within the structure.
