Polycarbonate Awnings

Polycarbonate Awnings

Polycarbonate Awnings are economical, aesthetically pleasing and practical; they work well in a wide range of temperatures and are extremely well suited for the harsh South African climate. These awnings are manufactured from high-tech polycarbonate material and have an anti-UV coating that blocks out up to 98% of UV rays and most importantly there is no warping of the awning.

We use 3 mm thick solid Perspex acrylic boards for our awnings, we do not use the cheap 6 mm hollow Multiwall polycarbonate boards as these boards are not as durable as the solid ones.

The PVC brackets of the polycarbonate awnings are injection moulded from specialised polymer plastic. As a matter of fact, aluminium brackets are also available, they are however more costly.
