Plastics Ltd manufacture and supply Polycarbonate Roofing, Polycarbonate
Sheets and a wide range of components and services
conservatory and lightweight roofing market.
We are able to offer professional advice, based on over 15 years experience from
our dedicated staff in helping our customers select the most suitable solution
for their roofing requirements. The professional advice includes the design and
supply of bespoke conservatory roofs.
We manufacture and supply structured polycarbonate (SPC) panel roof-packs,
cut-to-size to both trade and DIY customers. The projects we are involved with
range from the relatively simple lean-to roofs, through the huge variety of
domestic conservatory designs to large commercial roofing solutions for
supermarkets, warehousing, large public projects.
We supply all polycarbonate roofing
components from stock to anywhere in the UK. We supply a variety of glazing bars
and accessories. These include rafter-supported bars (suitable for timber
supported roofs), self-supporting bars, wall plates, eaves beams, hip rafter
bars, ridge beams, finials. We also supply roof vents suitable for all
installations with either glass or Polycarbonate glazing.
Our range of accessories include all the components required to complete a roof
installation. These accessories are Sheet Closure Extrusions (used to protect
and finish the bottom edge of the polycarbonate panel), Eaves Filler (to close
gaps at the Eaves and prevent draughts), Screw Buttons, Solid Aluminium Top Tape
and Breather Anti-Dust Tape to seal the ends of the polycarbonate roof sheets,
Silicone Sealant and Self Adhesive Flashing
sheets are supplied in a wide variety of colours and
thicknesses. The colour range is clear, bronze opal, bronze-opal and heatguard-opal.
Heatguard-opal is designed
to control the heat build-up in conservatories and is effective in reducing the
impact of the suns’ energy by 50%. We are also able to offer solar inserts as a
factory fit option fitted to the polycarbonate sheets. These are the most
effective solution in controlling heat build-up in conservatories. The solar
inserts reflect 80% of the suns’ radiant heat and reduce glare by 80%. Solar
inserts can also be fitted by Omega fitters to existing polycarbonate roofs
through our Omega Solar Insert Retrofit Service and, in addition, solar inserts
are supplied as a solar insert DIY kit.
Sheets vary in thickness from 10mm, through 16mm, 25mm, 32mm
to 35mm. The thicker polycarbonate panels offer the highest level of insulation
of any glazed roofing solution. The 35mm polycarbonate has a U-value of 1.2.
A similar solution is provided as a supply and fit service for glass roofs,
employing a solar film with similar specifications to the solar inserts.
In order to provide a comprehensive range of roofing solutions we also supply
and fit a number
different types of canopy. These canopies can be Cantilever or Self-supporting.
The cantilever options are suitable for a wide range of applications. Their key
attribute is that no supporting posts are required and therefore provides an
uninterrupted floor area. These are particularly popular as car ports. The
Post-Supported Canopies are very flexible as they can be configured to fit most
customer specifications for an outside covered area. Both types of canopy can be
used as Smoking Shelters. We do supply specialist standalone Smoking Shelters in
addition to the canopies.
We are able to provide Roof Light Domes to suit any requirement, both in terms
of the dimensions required, but, also, importantly the level of insulation
required. These roof light domes are designed specifically for flat roofs.
As part of our range of energy conserving products we supply a very simple
secondary glazing solution and light tubes supplying natural light into the
The secondary glazing can be supplied with different thicknesses of glazing
material to suit the installation and also in either acrylic sheet or plate
polycarbonate sheet. Plate polycarbonate is specified where security/safety is a
key customer requirement, being 250 times as strong as glass. All secondary
glazing can be cut-to-size in our factory.
The tubular roof lights are supplied in both rigid and flexible variants. The
flexible roof light is very popular as it is very easy to install.
