What are the advantages of a translucent roof for a temporary structures?

Translucent roof, which let in natural light, is the distinguishing characteristic of buildings. This offers the wonderful advantage of naturally lighting the building's inside, providing enough light for storage, manufacturing, and other operating requirements. You won't need to utilize an artificial lighting source because a translucent roof naturally emits enough light. This will save you money on the installation and operating costs of such a system. Moreover, translucent roofs are:

Reflective of heat

With translucent roofing, you can shield your ecologically sensitive materials, equipment electronics, and car paint jobs from up to 99.95 percent of damaging UV-A and UV-B rays. Your employees will also feel far more comfortable and protected from the sun than they would if they were working outside. This is because a roofs' thermal-reflective technology naturally maintains the interior of the building at a comfortable temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees warmer in the winter and 15 degrees colder in the summer.

Designed to last a lifetime

The transparent roofs are fastened to an industrial-grade steel frame and resistant to rips. Your fabric structure will withstand the weather and continue to perform year after year with the right maintenance. For added peace of mind, the roof is NFPA701 flame retardant.

Additional Advantages

  • They may be anchored to almost any type of base, such as asphalt, shipping containers, and ecological blocks, which makes them an adaptable option for field operations.
  • Designed to withstand wind and high snow loads by regional construction requirements.
  • Equipped with a plethora of add-ons, such as lightning protection, HVAC systems, resilient flooring, bay doors, and more.
  • Intended to work with an automated rail system in a telescopically operated manner for crane access.

Polycarbonate roofing sheets provide the ideal balance of natural light and roofing covers

Polycarbonate sheets offer several benefits for a variety of roofing applications. Owing to its distinct natural qualities, this substance is currently in use worldwide. Polycarbonate sheets are being used as a great substitute for glass and fiberglass by designers of projects of all sizes, from China to the US, via Australia and Brazil.

Among polycarbonate roofing sheets' principal benefits are:

  • Weight: Compared to glass, polycarbonate is substantially lighter.
  • Versatility: Due to its status as a thermoplastic, polycarbonate is exceptionally flexible and adaptable.
  • Durability: Polycarbonate has great impact resistance and is incredibly robust and durable.
  • Consistency: Polycarbonate lasts for years without losing its color, transparency, or form.
  • Light transmission: Compared to fiberglass, polycarbonate is far more capable of transmitting light. You may also experiment with its color, shape, and percentage of light transmission.

The finest of both worlds

Polycarbonate sheets are a great roofing material because they provide the best of all worlds when it comes to natural light. They allow nearly precisely the same amount of natural light into a structure as glass and significantly more than fiberglass. They are available in transparent, semi-transparent, and opaque varieties in a variety of hues and shades. Moreover, polycarbonate is more resilient than fiberglass and glass. 

People are starting to realize that durability and safety don't have to come at the expense of natural light. You may now enjoy all the natural light when sitting under a pergola, gazebo, at a shopping mall, school, or any other facility thanks to polycarbonate roofing sheets. You'll also benefit from low long-term maintenance and protection from the elements.
