The Suncover has a 0.04mm UV protective coating and the Starcover has a 0.06mm coating. This is why Starcover has a 15 year warranty and Suncover has 10.

Starcover is also processed slightly differently making it optically clearer.

You’ll probably need fasteners which are specifically for polycarbonate roofing.

We also stock accessories: noise stop tape to stop creaking due to temperature change, foam infill to stop wind or debris going in-between the sheets and the purlins and we stock flashings.

If you don’t know what accessories you need, feel free to contact us, we’re happy to help.

Yes, the corrugated profile has the same wave length and pitch, and runs easily into coloursteel.

We also have Greca and 5-Rib profiles.

All colours block out 99.5% for SUNCOVER and 99.9% for STARCOVER of harmful UV rays. This is because the UV protection is applied to the top side of the sheet, and has nothing to do with the colouring in the sheet.

It’s important to ensure the sheet is installed with the UV coating facing upwards towards the sun.

Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic polymer. It is very strong, flexible and does not shatter. It also has a UV protective coating applied to it giving protection from the sun.

PVC is very cheap to produce however it goes brittle quickly and will generally only last a couple of years.

Yes. Clearlite roofing generally refers to any type of clear plastic roofing.

There are three main types – polycarbonate roofing, fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) and PVC.

Polycarbonate roofing is the clearest and strongest.

Condensation is caused when warm air collides with cold surfaces. So if the sheets are cold and the air inside is warm (i.e. you have it installed in a sun-room or similar) you will get condensation on the inside.

The only way to stop this is to ensure that the temperature under the sheets is the same as the temperature outside, by using adequate ventilation.

You should try to build your structure in such a way so you don’t have to use any sealants.

If you do need to, there are only a few that are suitable (most will adversely affect the polycarbonate). Ensure it says that it’s suitable for polycarbonate on the back.

The following are suitable:
HOLDFAST FixAll 220 MS
HOLDFAST FixAll MS Crystal

Yes, if you’re picking up we can help you roll it into a tube. I.e. 2.4m sheets will roll into a tube about 200mm wide and 2.4m long.

It’s then quite easy to tie onto roof racks or a trailer, the shorter sheets will even fit in a van or station wagon.
