Colorado® UV Polycarbonate smoke brown is a transparent, brown plastic sheet with exceptionally high impact resistance. Due to this feature, polycarbonate can be used as security glazing or protection that is vandal-proof, burglarproof, impact-resistant or extra safe. In addition, polycarbonate has a fire certification that can be used in public spaces. Polycarbonate is having the fire certification Bs1D0 according to EN 13501-1 and is allowed to be used in public spaces, because of the high-temperature resistance. Lexan sheets are self-extinguishing and fire retardant. Another characteristic of this material is that it is easy to cold bend it without cracking. Polycarbonate is unbreakable! Furthermore, the sheets are 50% lighter than glass and are UV-resistant.
Polycarbonate is also commonly used as a boat window. This type of polycarbonate is UV resistant.
