Polycarbonate roofing is a popular choice among homeowners and tradespeople in Australia. Its versatility, durability, and advanced technology make it an ideal roofing solution. From its heat and light transmission properties to its fire resistance and excellent UV protection, we will discover why polycarbonate roofing is the best choice for your property.

What is Polycarbonate Roofing?

Polycarbonate Roofing

Polycarbonate roofing is made from a strong, translucent plastic that can withstand high temperatures. It is a durable and versatile roofing solution suitable for various applications, including patios, pergolas, and pool fences. Compared to standard polycarbonate roofing, Laserlite, offered by Singh Roofing Supplies, stands out with its advanced technologies and superior performance.

One of the core components of Laserlite polycarbonate roofing is the thermoplastic material. It is strong, shatterproof, corrosion-resistant, and capable of withstanding extreme temperatures without significant damage. Laserlite roofing also incorporates Comfort Cool technology, which reflects infrared lighting emitted by the sun, preventing it from passing through and reducing glare. This technology keeps outdoor spaces and patios cooler and more comfortable during the warmer months.

Laserlite roofing also features Advanced Weather Guard technology, which protects the roofing from damage or discolouration caused by the sun’s rays, wind, hail, or rain. With proper care and maintenance, Laserlite polycarbonate roofing can last up to 25 years and provide your property with a high-quality and professional finish.

The Key Benefits of Laserlite Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets

Laserlite polycarbonate roofing sheets offer numerous advantages that set them apart from other roofing materials.

1. Heat Transmission

Laserlite’s protective coating is thermally efficient and can handle temperatures up to 140 degrees Celsius. Unlike traditional glass, Laserlite polycarbonate roofing provides excellent insulation, stabilising and even out the temperature of a space. It can keep the space cool in the summer and act as an effective insulator during winter. With different tint options, such as bronze and clear, Laserlite roofing allows you to control the shade and natural sunlight in your outdoor space.

2. Light Transmission

One of the standout features of Laserlite polycarbonate roofing is its ability to provide natural and gentle lighting to outdoor spaces. Artificial lighting can feel harsh and unnatural, but Laserlite roofing allows for comfortable light transmission, enhancing the ambience of your patio or outdoor area. 

With a wide variety of colours to choose from, including clear, bronze tint, grey tint, opal, and cream, you can customise the lighting and aesthetic appeal of your outdoor space. Laserlite 3000, the technologically advanced heat-reflective range, offers even more options, such as platinum, frost, and gunmetal, with varying levels of light transmission and heat reduction.

3. Fire Resistance

Laserlite 2000 polycarbonate roofing is incredibly fire-resistant, able to extinguish flames and prevent the spread of extreme temperatures. It complies with fire-related tests such as Heat and Smoke Release Rates (AS/NZS 3837:1998) and the Early Fire Hazard Test (AS 1530.3:-1999), providing your property peace of mind and safety.

4. Excellent UV Protection

Laserlite 2000 polycarbonate roofing offers exceptional UV protection, preventing 99.9% of harmful ultraviolet radiation. It is designed to withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -30 degrees Celsius to 120 degrees Celsius, making it a reliable and durable roofing solution for Australian climates.

5. Lifetime Warranty

One of the major advantages of Laserlite products is their lifetime platinum warranty. According to AS/NZS 4257.4-1994 standards, the loss of light transmission will not exceed 11% within the first 15 years and 1% per year after that. As long as the Laserlite roofing remains in the same condition installed, the light transmission will remain consistent, providing long-lasting performance and value for your investment.

6. Weather Resistance

Laserlite polycarbonate roofing has a 10-year warranty against weather breakage and impact resistance. It is designed with innovative Weather Guard technology, which extends the life and performance of the roofing. Laserlite roofing is resistant to UV damage and maintains its colour, and withstands damage from hailstones up to 25mm in size for 10 years.

Types of Polycarbonate Sheets Available at Singh Roofing Supplies

Singh Roofing Supplies offers a wide range of Laserlite polycarbonate sheets to suit your roofing needs. The Laserlite 2000 collection features corrugated, greca, and trimdeck profiles in bronze, clear, cream, and grey tint. The sheets’ lengths range from 1.8m to 7.2m, providing flexibility for different project sizes. 

All Laserlite products at Singh Roofing Supplies are certified to Australian standards and feature Comfort Cool and Advanced Weather Guard technology, ensuring protection and performance throughout all seasons.

Environment – Factors to Consider

When choosing roofing materials, it is important to consider the specific demands of your home or commercial environment. Factors such as roof height, lighting, shading, orientation, and aesthetics should be considered to make the best roofing decision for your property. For instance, if you live in a warmer climate, you may want to choose a roofing colour that offers more light transmission while still providing shade. 

Areas in your home that face west may benefit from a colour that offers more light transmission to counteract the hot afternoon sun. Laserlite polycarbonate roofing is available in various colour options to suit your preferences and climate requirements.

Tips for Maintaining Your Laserlite Polycarbonate Roofing

Laserlite polycarbonate roofing is easy to clean and maintain, ensuring longevity and performance. Here are some tips for proper maintenance:

  • You can clean with warm, soapy water, a soft microfiber cloth, a sponge, or a bristle brush.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can scratch the sheeting.
  • Rinse the roofing thoroughly with clean water after cleaning.
  • Do not use high-pressure cleaners, as they can cause damage to the roofing material.
  • Test cleaning tools and solutions on a small area before applying them to the entire roof.

Laserlite 3000 vs. Laserlite 2000

Both Laserlite 3000 and Laserlite 2000 are high-performance polycarbonate roofing options. Laserlite 3000, however, offers additional features such as Comfort Cool technology, which provides up to 50% better heat reduction than standard polycarbonate sheets. It also has a lifetime platinum warranty and comes in a range of colour options, allowing you to customise the heat-reduction properties of your roof. Laserlite 2000, on the other hand, is versatile and designed to suit the Australian climate, offering advanced weatherguard technology for superior performance and durability.
