SUNLITE’s cellular polycarbonate structure yields a lightweight sheet with high impact strength and superior thermal insulation. High light transmission makes SUNLITE ideal for varied roofing, wall cladding, and glazing applications.

Typical Applications

  • Architectural roofing and glazing
  • Skylights and sidelights
  • Conservatories
  • Covered walkways
  • Displays, signage and decorations
  • Industrial roofing and glazing
  • Residential roofing and glazing
  • Covered swimming pools
  • Agricultural greenhouses

Cutting

  • A. SUNLITE sheets can be cut with standard wood or metal workshop equipment. Saw blades designed especially for plastic yield best results. A circular saw (fixed or portable, with small teeth suited for hardwood), rotating at high speed, band saw or a jigsaw (best for short, complex cuts) can all be used, taking care to advance the blade slowly. A hand and hacksaw may also be used for local cutting.
  • Always support the sheet in the vicinity of the cut and clean (with compressed air and/or by a vacuum cleaner) the dust and debris generated by the cutting. Running clean compressed air through the hollow channels, blowing away sawdust and shavings inside is a good practice.
  • Sheets of low and intermediate thickness, with modest dimensions, can be cut (taking the appropriate precautions) with a short, thin, sharp blade. A special cutting-wire hand tool may also be used, to make lengthwise cuts.

Drilling

  • Drilling can be carried out with drill bits intended for metal. When pre-drilling for a fastening screw, the hole’s diameter should be 2mm larger than that of the screw used. As when cutting, always support the sheet in the vicinity of the place being drilled, and clean away the sawdust and shavings, both on and inside the sheet.
  • Special attention must be given to drill all the required holes perpendicular to the face of the sheet.
  • Though drilling the sheet for fastening is a common way of installation, it is recommended to be used mostly in plain, economyoriented projects, and used sparingly elsewhere.
