Suntuf - Solar Control
More Light - Less Heat
When Covering Your Pergola Go For Suntuf not Hotstuff

New Suntuf Solar Control reflects reflects 66% of the sun's direct heat. (Conventional polycarbonate sheets reflect between 44% & 40%). It also blocks out 99% of harmful UV rays. Enjoy relaxing under your pergola even during hot weather with Suntuf Solar Control.

Why Suntuf Solar Control?

Suntuf Solar Control is a unique product of the Suntuf family of Polycarbonate sheeting. It transmits 25% of the natural light while reflecting the heat at the same time, providing "cool" daylight conditions under the roof.

How Does It Work?

Millions of small flat particles are dispersed in the sheet. The light rays can pass between the particles while the heat is reflected away. The reflected light is diffused because the particles are dispersed in different planes - thus reducing the incidence of "glare".


Omega Profile

OMEGA PROFILE is a modern shape designed to give optimum light transmission without casting shadows. It can be fixed through the crest or valley. The major advantage over other corrugated profile sheets is that the overlap (wastage) is only 50mm compared with 100mm, which not only makes the sheet more economical, but also reduces the build-up of dirt between the side lap. The OMEGA PROFILE will side-lap both corrugated and greca profiles. Sheets come in eleven lengths.
