Gable plates are also called multi-walled or tunnel sheets. These sheets consist of at least two layers of plastic with small partitions in between. These form open hollow spaces next to each other. The partitions connect the plastic sheets at the top and bottom. This gives the sheet its special stability.
At Kunststof Forte Belgium, the polycarbonate channel sheet in 4 mm is available in clear/transparent or opal. The clear sheet allows up to 69 % of light through and the opal sheet allows up to 45 % of light through. It is advisable to choose the opal colour if you want to keep the sun out more. This also makes a big difference in the heat it lets through.
Polycarbonate channel plates are available in different thicknesses (4 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 16 mm and 25 mm) and different lengths and widths.
Because the sheets are made of polycarbonate, they are protected against UV light, flexible, competitively priced and (almost) indestructible! The channel plates are lightweight plates and easy to handle. They also spring along, so that they can absorb a lot of weight.
The 4 mm plate is 2-walled. There are no other versions.
The 4 mm polycarbonate channel sheet is the thinnest channel sheet available, therefore it is also relatively flexible. It is even possible to roll it up into a tube. However, this means that it only has a limited number of applications.
The 4 mm is well suited for a garden greenhouse or as a glass replacement for small windows. When it comes to small dimensions, 4 mm is usually always suitable.
This board is not recommended for roofs with large spans. A thicker sheet is required here.
The polycarbonate channel plates have countless processing possibilities. For instance, you can bend the sheet hot and cold, saw, drill, polish, facet, matting and print.
You can easily cut the sheets to size yourself using a fine saw.
