Why are Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets preferred for Swimming Pools, Walkways, and Car and Two-Wheeler Sheds?

As a pioneer in manufacturing and supplying high-quality Polycarbonate roofing sheets in India, Lotus Roofings offers roofing sheets that are highly suitable for swimming pools, walkways, car sheds, and two-wheeler sheds, especially to protect from harsh summers.


Polycarbonate Sheets are the most preferred for swimming Pools.

Lotus Polycarbonate sheets have excellent UV protection. This makes them ideal for use in areas that are exposed to direct and harsh sunlight.  This means that they will not crack, yellow, or become brittle over time.

UV-protected polycarbonate sheets are safe for children using swimming pools as they provide a high level of protection from UV radiation that could be harmful to human skin. This is more applicable to children because they have highly sensitive skin. The UV protection provided by polycarbonate sheets helps in blocking harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of sunburn and skin damage.

Additionally, polycarbonate sheets are highly durable and impact-resistant, which means that they are less likely to break or shatter compared to other materials such as glass. This reduces the risk of injury from broken shards of glass in case of any accidental impact.

Furthermore, polycarbonate sheets can be installed with an anti-slip coating, which helps to improve traction and reduce the risk of slips and falls around the swimming pool area.

Finally, polycarbonate sheets are transparent, which means that they allow natural light to pass through. This can help in maintaining visibility around the swimming pool area even though it is covered, reducing risks and increasing safety.

What are the advantages of Polycarbonate?


Polycarbonates are tough thermoplastics that can withstand large impact forces and can be used in a myriad of ways. As Polycarbonate is 250 times stronger than glass, it gives much better protection to your assets against theft, etc.

Also, glass can be easily broken and when that happens its pieces can harm you and be potentially dangerous to deal with. Whereas Polycarbonate cannot be easily broken and hence offers much higher safety and protection in comparison.

Polycarbonate is also shatter and scratch-proof, making it perfect for roofing and window glazing.


Heat Resistance

Polycarbonate has the ability to resist the heat of up to 250 degrees for long hours, which makes it incredibly energy efficient and a fantastic insulator. Whereas glass can quickly absorb heat and hence is difficult to work with during installation or after service and can get damaged. Lotus Roofings Products have Flame Resistance Test Report and other Certifications.


Ultraviolet (UV) Protection

Polycarbonate is exceedingly resistant to UV light, preventing warping or discoloration in the sun. This helps tremendously in protecting the plants grown in Greenhouses. A vast percentage of UV rays can penetrate glass and cause harm to people who are exposed to it.


Environment Friendly

Polycarbonate as a highly sustainable material can even be melted down, cooled, and reused – limiting unnecessary waste in landfills.

Lasts Longer

 Polycarbonate is a highly durable, impact-resistant material, which makes it a popular choice for applications where glass would typically break or shatter.

Polycarbonate is often used in applications such as safety glasses, electronic device covers, and bulletproof windows among others which is because, it has high resistance to impact, abrasion, and weathering. While glass tends to damage easily and needs to be replaced very often, polycarbonate has a longer life span cutting down on the cost of replacement.


Where is it used?

Polycarbonate sheets are used in unlimited applications, while a few are listed here:

  • Conservatories
  • Skylights & Covered Walkways
  • Industrial Roofings and glazing
