Why choose Polycarbonate?
Polycarbonate sheeting can make a formidable alternative to regular glazing materials. The main attraction is that this group of thermoplastic polymers is very robust, yet relatively lightweight and can allow good light transmission. It can be molded, optically transparent, single or multi-wall and is very versatile.
This makes it ideal for engineering applications like outdoor canopy structures designed to give protection and cover where strength-to-weight ratio is important.
- Impressive strength-to-weight ratio
- Good light transmission
- Exceptional resistance to impact
- Good weatherability
- UV control capacity options through coatings and solar reflective inserts
- Versatile - flat sheet /curved panel possibilities

Polycarbonate Roof Structures - Types of Systems
Independent, mono-pitch lean-to or cantilever? Timber or steel supported? Curved or flat panel polycarbonate sheeting? The options for your polycarbonate structure are many and Falcon Windows are here to advise and help.
Whether you are looking for a canopy for your sun terrace, a car port on the side of your house, a shelter over the bike racks for your business or a smart covered porch canopy over the entrance to your commercial premises, we can help create the best option for your location, requirements and budget.
Timber & Steel Supported Systems
Where structures are to be free-standing, or where there is adequate space to allow for the positioning of columns or posts, the roofing frames may be held by robust steel or timber supports.
These benefit from existing presence of a solid structural wall, so that the polycarbonate roof structure need only be supported independently by posts on one side. A space-saving formula, often adopted by car ports adjacent to a house.
Smart and eye-catching, these are excellent solutions for straightforward mono-pitch roofs on car ports or porches where space does not allow for the inclusion of support posts.
Bespoke polycarbonate canopy structures can be also be designed and created to meet specific requirements. They may be gable or gazebo style, hipped or L shaped style - either valley or hipped as appropriate. Ask the Falcon Windows Ipswich team for advice and we will be pleased to prepare a no obligation quotation on request.
Helping you to replace an existing polycarbonate roof effectively
If you have a small lean-to shed, covered corridor or walkway with an aging polycarbonate roof, then it’s important to replace it before wind or weather damage occurs which may leave your roof covering unsafe or unsightly.
Even though polycarbonate sheeting has a considerable life-span, it may become brittle over time and then falling branches or even aggressive hailstones can soon do serious damage to your roof and your property.
Polycarbonate technologies have made considerable progress in recent years too, so you’re sure to find that a replacement roof in the latest quality polycarbonate sheeting and complementing new components will be not just smarter, but more efficient products and possibly better suited to your specific needs.
Whether you have a small porch or large-scale polycarbonate 'greenhouse' structure covering your swimming pool needing attention, Falcon Windows Ipswich Polycarbonates Division can help.
Don't forget that all polycarbonate installations from Falcon Windows Ipswich polycarbonate division come with a full 2 year warranty for real peace of mind.
