A carport is a covered structure used to offer limited protection to vehicles, primarily cars, from rain and snow. It is essential for car protection especial in the bad weather area. While the carport allows for more ventilation and most carports are friendly for DIYers, easy to install and handle. A high-quality carport can last 20 years without any damage. So What types of carport have you learned about and how do you choose the carport?You will become more clear about how to choose a suitable carport after reading this article. Let's begin! 1. Color coated steel roof carport Advantages: The color coated steel sheet roof carport has varying colors for options. The common colors are green, blue or white. The price is lowest . The weight of the color coated roof carport is lighter and easy to install and handle. It has high snow load in case for the risk of collapse and leakage.Disadvantages: Color coated steel roof carport is made of color coated steel plate, which is formed into various wave shapes . Its thickness is relatively thin, so it is relatively easy to deform. Because it is a metal material, its corrosion resistance and waterproof performance are relatively poor, and it is easy to rust. The material needs to be processed on site. The layer is stressed, the strength is low, and it is easy to be affected by external forces to damage the entire structure. The color steel tile has poor flame resistance, is opaque and affects the line of sight in the carport. It is easy to adhere to dust and it is difficult to rely on rain to wash to achieve the function of self-cleaning. Increasing the frequency of later maintenance, the color steel tile carport is simple and rigid, basically unable to achieve complex and unique shapes, and the service life is relatively short, generally 3-5 years. 2. Membrane structure carport Advantages: The roof of the membrane structure carport is made of membrane material, which is a new type of building material. It has many excellent properties. First, the membrane structure has high tension, good toughness, high strength, tear resistance, and certain permeability. Compared with the above two materials, the membrane material has a lighter weight, so its safety is higher, the construction is more convenient and the cycle is short. All the material processing of the membrane structure carport is directly completed in the factory, and the on-site construction time is short. Therefore, it is more convenient and quicker. Generally, the carport can be completed and put into use within 15 days from design to construction. Because the membrane structure is formed by the joint action of steel components, cables, and membrane materials to form a stable pre-tension forming, it can achieve more Artistic styling, getting rid of the monotony of traditional carports, making the carport more ornamental. Since the surface of the membrane has an anti-fouling coating, it has good self-cleaning properties and is not easy to be contaminated with dust. It can be washed by rain. Keep it clean, lasting as new, reduce the frequency of subsequent cleaning and maintenance, and the service life of the membrane structure carport can reach more than 15 years, which is more economical in the long run.Disadvantages: The cost is high. It has high requirements for steel structure design and high requirements for membrane material installation accuracy. Therefore, it requires higher requirements for construction personnel. 3.Polycarbonate sheet roof carport Advantages: The properties of the polycarbonate sheets are stable and suitable for various natural environments. It can maintain the stability of various physical indicators from -40℃-120. Compared with color coated steel carport , it has better corrosion resistance and UV resistance blocking 99% rays. So it can better resist ultraviolet and heavy wind resistance in the open environment. and the polycarbonate sheet has good flame resistance, and can withstand high temperatures above 600 degrees. It is a flame-retardant engineering material. At the same time, it has a lighter weight and is of the same size. The weight of the hollow polycarbonate is only 1/15-1/12 of glass, and the strength of solid polycarbonate sheet is 200 times that of glass. It is safe and has no risk of breaking and has good light transmittance. It can last 20 years.

Are you looking for an ideal roof material? It seems likely that you are looking for a lightweight, excellent impact strength and durable glazing solution. Polycarbonate sheets are you fantastic alternative. There are usually three types of polycarbonate widely used for roof, solid polycarbonate multi wall polycarbonate and corrugated polycarbonate panels.Polycarbonate sheets are manufactured with Sabic Lexan raw polycarbonate, 250 times stronger than glass. Polycarbonate is as transparent as glass and transmit approximately 85% of sunlight. Polycarbonate can withstand extreme weather and fire. Polycarbonates can maintain rigidity up to 140°C and toughness down to -20°C or, with special grades, even lower. The material is amorphous, therefore it displays excellent mechanical properties and high dimensional stability. Unique Plastics company is a leading polycarbonate manufacturer in China with best price.We also offer customized service. OEM &ODM What are types of polycarbonate sheets?The solid polycarbonate is tough and high transmission. Polycarbonate possesses impact resistance 250 times greater than that glass while also exhibiting exhibiting tensile resistance. With UV protection on the both sides, polycarbonate can withstand even the harshad of environments and extreme temperatures. There are also embossed and diamond polycarbonate which are popular for decoration gate.These features allow them to be used in a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications,such as balcony roof, door awning, carport,sign faces and highway noise barrier.The multi wall polycarbonate sounds like layered polycarbonate sheeting that is even more powerful in terms of durability lightweight and versatility. Polycarbonate sheet is most widely used for all kinds of roofing systems, swimming pool enclosure,stadiums skylight, greenhouse cover. Multi wall polycarbonate combines light weight and outstanding flexibility which is convenience of storing, transporting and cutting. These sheets are available from twin wall to five walled structures that vary the thermal insulation and thus, application used in.Corrugated polycarbonate are even stronger and cost-effective glazing solution. Corrugated panels have many advantages as the surface of these sheets can be bent or folded into our desired designs by marketing easier to fit pieces for roofing sheets. It has superior performance with exceptional impact resistance. It allows 80% natural light into while against harmful UV rays. They can be easily bent into whichever shape required and can be layered on top of other sheets.Waved polycarbonate can be used for warehouse roof, factories roof,vertical glazing, buildding cladding.What are applications of polycarbonate?Warehouse, factories roofConversatory coverCanopiesPergola roofBalcony door awningCarport shedBuilding claddingDecoration parititonsWalkway roofHighway noise barrierSignageAcrylic VS Polycarbonate Acrylic and polycarbonate both are familiar cover material and incredibly tough completely clear. Many people are confused about how to choose suitable material. They have some key differences that you should understand as you select the right material for your project.Impact strength Polycarbonate sheets has greater impact strength than acrylic, 35 times stronger than acrylic. Polycarbonate panels are virtually unbreakable. If you are prepared for warehouse roof, we recommend you choose polycarbonate sheets. Polycarbonate can also be safely drilled anywhere on the sheet with a
standard bit and suffers no damage, whereas acrylic becomes more and
more likely to break when drilling closer to the corners. Temperature and fire resistancePolycarbonate has wide temperature range from -40℃-+120℃. Even in extreme enviroments, the pgysical featurers of polycarboante still stable. While the melting point of the acrylic sheet is 70°C. Prolonged sunlight exposure will melt the acrylic sheet. Anti-agingThere are 50um UV protection layer on the side of polycarbonate, against 99.9% harmful UV rays. Over 10 years, polycarbonate won't go aging. While acrylic sheets are easy go aging and yellowing. Polycarbonate’s optical clarity and UV resistance makes it ideal for applications such as machine guards, signs, face shields, skylights, POP displays.
