Advantages and disadvantages of a clear slate

As with any other material , the transparent slate has its " pros " and " cons "

As with any other material, the transparent slate has its "pros" and "cons»

skim areas of application of this relatively new modern coating can comeconcluded that he has many good qualities.However, it is not devoid of drawbacks and specific.All of these "polar" qualities also need to be sure to get information, to have an idea of ​​how the material will behave when exposed to various external factors.

Advantages transparent slate

The positive qualities of this material undoubtedly include the following:

  • strength
Despite its small size , it would seem, the thickness , the material has excellent impact resistance

Although small, it would seem, the thickness, the material has excellent impact resistance

Transparent modern plastics, designed for installation of the roof, installing walls and partitions are designed for outdoor use, so they have a high impact resistance, and superior to the quality of the glass in the dozens of times.As a result of the foregoing, the plastic slate can be called absolutely safe to use material.For example, when falling on a roof of the castle, it is in the worst case, leave it on the surface of the crack, but the glass pieces may scatter and wake up at the head of those who will be in, say, a greenhouse or gazebo.

  • Light transmission
Many kinds of slate for a transparent light transmission are not inferior to the usual silicate glass

roof Transparency makes it possible to maximize the daylight under the roof, which is especially important if it is arranged on a greenhouse, conservatorygarden or in the house.It does not interfere with good lighting and a pergola, a workshop or a balcony, as it does not have to once again include artificial light through the clear coat that will significantly reduce spending on electricity.

The polymers used for the production of transparent roof , it is absolutely safe for humans and the environment

polymers used for the production of transparent roof, it is absolutely safe for humans and the environment

Environmentally friendly material - this is one of the most important qualities of such roofs.In operation, and under the influence of external factors, the plastic slate starts to secrete harmful to humans or the environment substances.In contrast, the traditional asbestos cement roofing eventually becomes dangerous to human health.It is significant that since 2005, asbestos-containing materials generally banned for use in the European countries.

  • UV resistance
Quality transparent slate is not terribly destructive action of ultraviolet radiation

Qualitative transparent slate is not terribly destructive action of ultraviolet radiation

UV resistance - it is also no less important advantage of transparent roofing.It passes through the sun's rays, but are not absorbing them, so there is less susceptible to degradation by ultraviolet radiation, which can be called the main enemy of the majority of other roofing.

The transparent roof is almost not heated and does not accumulate heat, because it does not absorb the heat rays.In contrast, metal roofing, as well as traditional slate very hot, and then, in the early evening and the reduction of atmospheric temperature, are beginning to heat indoors.

  • Flexibility clear slate
Flexible material offers great opportunities for giving roof structures of different shapes

- Fully transparent, having a 92 ÷ 95% light transmission.It may well be compared with glass, so it is used for areas requiring high illumination.

- translucent material is 55 ÷ 75% light transmission.Behind him scanned contours of individual items, but consider them as it should not be possible.

- Matt Slate has the lowest percentage of transparency, therefore hardly transmits light.But it differs the most intense color.

- opaque material is completely light-tight.
