At just 1/8 the weight of glass, Rooflite® corrugated sheet does not require the extensive structural support that a heavier glass wall or skylight needs. Lightweight sheet is easy to handle and install.
Able to withstand extreme abuse, the strong Rooflite® corrugated sheet has an impact resistance 20 times stronger than fiberglass and over 200 times stronger than glass. Resisting hail, wind borne objects and vandalism, Rooflite® can withstand over 235 inch per pounds of impact within a temperature range of -40°F to 250°F as measured by ASTM D 3029.
EASY TO INSTALL
Rooflite® corrugated sheet has been specifically designed for simple and rapid installation. It easily adapts to any wall or roof with a bending radius over 13'.
Rooflite® corrugated sheet meets the requirements of approved light transmitting plastic under the Uniform Building Code as recognized by ICBO, BOCA and SBCC.
Clear Rooflite® corrugated sheet transmits visible light - up to 90% (as measured by ASTM standards and demonstrated in the chart below) to your crops, house plants or enclosure.
REDUCED U.V. TRANSMISSION
Rooflite® corrugated is essentially opaque to ultraviolet light at wavelengths below 385 nanometers. This U.V. protection will help to prevent fading and discoloration of interior decor as well as protect tender seedlings and greenhouse crops. Rooflite® corrugated sheet is manufactured using state-of-the-art co-extrusion technology combining color, U.V. resistance and durability. Remaining clear for many years, Rooflite® is backed by a ten year, non-prorated warranty against yellowing.
By introducing glass into the polycarbonate material, CO-EX has developed a product which gives you the best features of both. When incorporated into Rooflite® sheet, Britelite offers high abrasion resistance as well as greatly increased light diffusion.
Unharmed by most substances, it is necessary to avoid contact with adhesives, paints or solvents incompatible with polycarbonate. Avoid benzene, gasoline, acetone and carbon tetrachloride among others and use recommended closure materials, avoid P.V.C. shade curtains and gasketing. For specific product information, call CO-EX for compatibility recommendations.
Factory applied condensation control is provided with Rooflite® panels. Reducing surface tension, the condensation control allows water to spread into a thin sheet rather than form into droplets.
Rooflite® is designed for normal use in temperatures from -40°F to 250°F making it appropriate for use in all climates.
During early morning and late afternoon hours, standard flat glazing reflects solar light and energy. The profiles of Rooflite® are engineered to capture angled light for increased solar heat gain during colder winter months to save energy costs in greenhouses and other structures.
Optical transparency (light transmission) deterioration shall not exceed 6% in 10 years per ASTM 1925-77. Yellowness index shall change no greater than 10 delta from originally measured quality in 10 years per ASTM D 1003-77. Rooflite® shall not break as a result of hail in accordance with EUPA 36876 for up to 3 years from date of purchase (hail at a diameter of 20mm striking the sheet at 21m. per sec.).
