What is it?

Multi-wall LEXAN® THERMOCLEAR® (LTC) is a sheet that offers high impact strength, yet provides light transmission, all with superior energy efficiency. In addition to these crucial components, Lexan is one of the most long-term solutions for canopy covering materials—despite extreme weather conditions, such as are experienced in Florida. The LEXAN® THERMOCLEAR® DRIPGARD (LTD) sheet provides these advantages, but also contains a specialized coating that makes it useful for greenhouses. The weight-bearing structure of Lexan gives it a strong internal support, but the ribbed surface also displays an attractive look for any awning project.

What are the Benefits of Lexan?

Depending on your needs, Lexan can be superior to many traditional canopy options. For one, it is one of the strongest materials, and can sustain high impact. This could potentially be helpful during extreme weather. For all its strength, Lexan is lightweight. It is only 15% the weight of traditional double-paned glass, yet it is many times stronger. And, when compared to glass, its insular capabilities outperform glass by 40%. That translates into better performance when trying to keep cool or reduce energy output. One of Lexan’s major benefits is its use of natural light. While Lexan blocks all UV rays, it still allows the majority of usable light, giving it a unique advantage for energy-efficient lighting options. Lexan is approved for use with major model building codes, so it is an ideal option for your new construction or canopy.
