Multi-wall polycarbonate is a lightweight material that allows for high light transmission, high insulation, is flame retardant, impact resistant, and allows for design flexibility and ease of installation. Its insulation rating is R-1.6 to R-3.7, depending on the thickness of the sheet, which for a light-transmitting material is pretty good. It is typically used in greenhouse applications because of these qualities of the material. It comes in a variety of colors which will dictate the amount of light transmitted. It is visually attractive, offering a slightly skewed transparency allowing for privacy without compromising light transmission. The material itself is recyclable.

The price is relatively inexpensive. Prices range based on color and thickness, but start at $1.40 / sq ft to $5.95 / sq ft. See Sundance Supply’s website for detailed pricing with specifications or installation guidelines.
