Opal & Bronze Polycarbonate
The white tint in Opal provides a pleasant light diffusion that reduces glare and overheating. Unlike the Bronze panel, Opal allows more of the growing light spectrum needed by plants for healthy growth.
Opal is recommended for roof applications, especially in Southern states, and at higher elevations where solar radiation can be intense. The insulating, internal air space reduces condensation, making it ideal for a patio roof.
Bronze tint is attractive and is ideal for patio roof and walls. It provides shading, privacy, and minimizes condensation.
