- Natural Light:
Rodeca polycarbonate sheets consist of multi-cell layers which diffuse light and allows for a smooth, and glare-free, light transmission. This also reduces the use of artificial lighting within the building and hence, reducing energy consumption costs.
- Thermal Resistance:
An R Values of R 1.42 is one of the highest available in the polycarbonate market ensuring that heat gain /loss is minimized (this also creates better climate control)
- Impact resistance:
RODECA has a high-impact range and offers a thicker-face sheet to give greater impact resistance especially in buildings such as sports halls and areas with higher traffic areas. It also offers excellent resistance to extreme weather especially hail storms.
Rodeca cladding was used by the famous architectural office Herzog & de Meuron to create the LABAN-Centre in London, which was awarded the prestigious STIRLING AWARD in October 2003. It was one of the first buildings to experiment with translucent plastic as an exterior surface and glows brightly after dark. The clear colour on the outer wall and inner wall coloured creates an amazing 3-dimensional effect.
