Lifetime warranty.

Our polycarbonate roofing is covered by a lifetime warranty to give long service under normal usage.

Protection against excessive yellowing of the sheet is for a lifetime from date of purchase. 

Damage from heavy hail up to 25mm in diameter in high winds is covered for ten years. 

Strong and lightweight.

Our sheeting is manufactured from polycarbonate, an advanced polymer with optical and physical properties that can't be matched by other materials, with impact strength up to 150 times that of tempered glass.

UV protection.

The polycarbonate sheeting used by SolarShield not only blocks 99.9% of harmful UV rays so you can enjoy the sun without sunburn, but the integral surface treatment prevents IV from degrading the sheets' surface and helps prolong its life under the harsh New Zealand sun. 

Building code.

Fully complies with the New Zealand building code. Engineering specifications and a producer statement can be supplied if a permit is required.

HEAT & LIGHT TRANSMISSION

SolarShields are available in a range of colours and profiles to suit your home and surroundings.  Clear sheets transmit some 90% of glorious daylight.  Check out the heat and light transmission tables below for the percentage applicable to the various colours. 

 

In cooler climates, clear sheeting allows good heat transmissions, while in hot climates tinted sheets provide a reduction in transmitted heat as well as reduced glare.
