Duo-Gard’s Variety of Polycarbonate Panel Options Creates Solutions
February 9, 2021
Duo-Gard’s fully engineered and warranted polycarbonate glazing systems will save you time and money on your next project. Our glazing systems are designed to accommodate the longest panel lengths and organic shapes in the industry, providing long continuous runs of polycarbonate panels in both cellular and monolithic sheets. This creates a solution without a step or break in the panels which creates potential leak points and snow or debris buildup and structural issues resulting in unplanned costs to the owner.
Turnkey Services Duo-Gard’s certified installation crews handle, transport, and install longer sheet lengths anywhere in the country. Other manufactures have limitations on their panel lengths due to logistics and origin of the polycarbonate panels. Our energy and cost efficient polycarbonate systems are dry glazed and do not require glue or adhesives for the system’s structural integrity, leading to a longer lifespan. Duo-Gard’s systems do not require maintenance after installation compared to other manufacturers that often need to have their exterior panels reconditioned or replaced, leading to future costs for the owner.
