The Polycarbonate Sheet for building material

American architect Louis Kahn once said, “To design space is to design light.” Natural light in an architectural space is crucial. Architects employ a variety of design methods to shape and define a space by using light. One method involves modifying the building’s structure - architects can open light wells, program large windows - another makes use of translucent materials such as polycarbonate sheet

Polycarbonate sheet is a building material used internationally. Its high transparency in a single or twinwall configuration with space between two panels allows light to penetrate. In addition, due to its light weight, impact resistance and sound insulation properties, polycarbonate has been a popular building material since the mid-1980s. In fact, the material has become common in our day-to-day lives, seen in highway noise barriers and greenhouse roofing. 

Compared with glass, polycarbonate sheets are lighter and safer. In the past, polycarbonate hollow sheet were used mostly for industrial purposes. In recent years, more architects have pioneered new uses for the material, integrating polycarbonate sheets into the facades of private residences and even public buildings. By creating a translucent “avenue”, the building transforms into a box of hazy natural light.

MASS DESIGN appreciates the smooth surface of polycarbonate sheeting, as well as the material’s vertical grain, through which light can pass rhythmically like waves of water. Polycarbonate sheet is also light and easy to disassemble, making it suitable for the construction of temporary buildings.
