Window Options

Thermoclear polycarbonate

Note: The glazing material (Thermoclear®) used is ideal for humid environments, however, it differs from glass in that it’s not sealed, therefore condensation may form in the cellular walls when interior/exterior temperatures are such that dew point temperatures are created (usually in periods of cooler weather). This condensation usually disappears when warmer weather returns. 

All colours only available in Triple wall 16mm.
