New supplier Novolux to put polycarbonate sheet back on the map

A new venture supported by one of the world’s largest independent polycarbonate extruders is set to shake up the UK polycarbonate sheet market.

Novolux, based north of Newport, will supply an extensive array of quality multiwall and solid polycarbonate sheet products made by multimillion-pound Italian firm Dott.Gallina who have recently celebrated their 60th Anniversary.

In its Policarb™ range, you’ll find multiwall UV-protected polycarbonate sheets, with multiple air chambers that guarantee excellent thermal performance.

Commonly used for roofing, windows, skylights, greenhouses, porches, canopies and more, Policarb™ products feature a UV co-extrusion on the outward-facing side, giving greater longevity and a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The company’s Policomp™ range contains solid polycarbonate sheets with UV protection on both sides, making it an ideal choice for all glazing applications and also comes with a 10-year warranty.

Novolux will be offering polycarbonate sheet in several formats – pallet quantities, full or mixed pallets, single sheets or cut to size, bespoke products.

“Reports of the death of polycarbonate sheet have been greatly exaggerated,” comments Novolux National Sales Manager Craig Weatherley.

“In many sectors, it’s still hugely in demand, regularly used in factories, garden centres, sports stadiums, and railway stations, as well as DIY – and in 2020, the market for it has soared, as millions of businesses have rushed to install transparent protective screens to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

“At Novolux, we want to help installers capitalise on those opportunities with great quality products, backed by great service, supplied country-wide.

“We’re not offering low-quality imports from the Far East and Turkey – this is top-of-the-range polycarbonate sheet, manufactured by a world-leader in the field.

“If you’re interested in learning more about how we can help your business grow, don’t hesitate to give us a call.”

In addition to its market-leading range of polycarbonate sheet, Novolux will also supply roof windows, canopy systems, roof lanterns, loft ladders and various roofing accessories, all from stock and on a national basis.
