Glass would typically be the installation option for anyone seeking to draw strong levels of natural lighting into a sheltered outdoor space, or wanting a transparent shelter system around pools or outdoor living areas. However, age-old issues with this include the weight of the glass installation, risk of breakage and inevitably the cost.
The lightweight nature of acrylic sheeting used in branded products like ClearVue Translucent Roofing System, or ClearVue Acrylic Fencing System has opened up roofing and fencing options to DIYers and builders who would normally rule out glass options. The lightweight, tough nature of acrylic sheeting lends itself well to the burgeoning DIY market.
The risk of breakage and damage during installation is far less and supporting structures are easily installed. They are also not required to withstand the weight of the equivalent sized sheet of glass.
As well as their easy installation, on completion the aluminium framing for either the acrylic roofing or fencing sheets also helps create a slim framed look, maximising light levels and aesthetics without compromising strength.
New Zealand’s environment is a tough one on any compound type products and the high quality acrylic compounds used in the ClearVue products come with the security of a 15-year full replacement guarantee and a promise that the clarity and strength of the products is retained throughout their lifetime.
The ClearVue Polycarbonate roofing range will ensure 99.9% of UV light is shielded out for the life of the product, providing many years of enjoyable, safe indoor-outdoor living regardless of the season.
