If it’s sheer strength and protection you’re looking for in your glazing, Axgard clearly leads the pack. This listing is for a 12mm Solid Polycarbonate Sheet. Made of a bleeding edge polymer it is nigh unbreakable, 200 times stronger than glass. Instead of being separated into thin layers like most polycarbonate sheets for insulation, it is made of solid panels to optimise for durability.
This resilience makes Axgard very suitable for exterior glazing like bike shelters. 12mm sheets are rock solid and all but indestructible due to being a very thick sheet of an already strong material.
Clear Axgard has the advantage of resembling glass’s appearance very closely, making it good for situations where glass is being replaced. Available in widths ranging from 500mm to 2050mm and lengths from 500mm to 3050mm.
Another one of Clear Amber Group’s many product brands, Axgard polycarbonate sheets are extremely durable. Polycarbonate is far stronger than glass, around 200 times stronger than glass of a comparable thickness as well as being lighter. Rather than use this to make thin walls like with multi-wall polycarbonate Axgard glazing panels look like regular window panels. However, unlike windows, Axgard is nigh unbreakable and provides a much higher insulation factor. For this reason, Axgard is particularly popular to use as a secondary glazing solution or as glazing on bus shelters and in public places.Like with Axiome, Axgard comes in different thicknesses and colours. Thinner Axgard is light and flexible, while thicker Axgard is about as tough as glazing can get. Axgard’s colour palette ranges from clear, to tinted bronze and opal shades for reduced light transmission, to gentle patterned and even opaque black.
