  • Conservatories: These are rooms with glass or plastic walls and roofs that are attached to houses. They are used for growing plants or relaxing.
  • Skylights: These are windows on the roof that let in sunlight from above. They can make a room brighter and warmer.
  • Greenhouses: These are structures with glass or plastic walls and roofs that are used for growing plants. They protect the plants from cold weather and pests.

What are some of the benefits of using Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheets and why is it important?

Understanding the benefits of multiwall polycarbonate sheets can enable you to optimize your building design and performance. You can achieve more energy efficiency, durability, and aesthetics with this material.

Increased natural light:

Lotus Multiwall polycarbonate sheets can let in more natural light than other materials, which can improve your mood, productivity, and sleep quality. Natural light can also stimulate the production of vitamin D, which is essential for bone health and immune system function.

Reduced noise pollution:

Multiwall polycarbonate sheets manufactured by Lotus Roofings can reduce the transmission of external noise, such as traffic, airplanes, or machinery. This can create a more peaceful and comfortable environment for you and your family. Reduced noise pollution can also lower your stress levels and blood pressure.

Enhanced indoor air quality: Multiwall polycarbonate sheets can prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria, which can cause allergies, asthma, and respiratory infections. They can also reduce the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are harmful chemicals that can be found in paints, solvents, and adhesives. Improved indoor air quality can benefit your health and well-being.

Some of the other health benefits of using multiwall polycarbonate sheets for various applications are:
  1. Multiwall polycarbonate sheet is resistant to UV rays, which can cause sunburn, skin cancer, premature aging, and other skin problems. By blocking the harmful UV rays, multiwall polycarbonate sheets can protect the skin of the people who are exposed to natural light under the sheet.
  2. Beneficial for eyeglasses, skylights, greenhouses, and other applications where natural light is desired but UV exposure is not.
  3. Reduce heat loss and noise, as polycarbonate sheets have a cellular structure with insulating air spaces that reduce thermal transfer and sound transmission.
  4. Create a more comfortable and energy-efficient indoor environment for residential and commercial spaces.
  5. Prevent fire hazards and injuries, as polycarbonate sheets are flame-resistant, heat-resistant, and impact-resistant. This can enhance the safety and security of buildings and structures where fire or impact risks are high, such as banks, factories, airports, etc.
  6. Can improve the aesthetics and mood of the spaces, as polycarbonate sheets offer high light transmission and can be colored to match different designs. This helps in creating a more pleasant and attractive atmosphere for the occupants and visitors of the buildings and structures.
  7. They can prevent bacterial growth and infections, as polycarbonate sheets can be coated with anti-bacterial agents that inhibit the growth of microbes on the surface. This can be useful for applications where hygiene and sanitation are important, such as hospitals, kitchens, bathrooms, etc.
  8. Lotus Multiwall polycarbonate sheet is durable and weather-resistant. It can withstand harsh environmental conditions such as rain, snow, wind, and heat. This can prevent the discoloration of the roof due to corrosion, oxidation, or fading. A discolored roof may affect the appearance and value of the building or structure.
