Acrylic is the typical glazing for dome skylights. However, polycarbonate is ideal when impact resistance is required.
For instance, in seaside communities seagulls drop clams to try to break them open on a hard surface. Unfortunately, many times they drop their clams on a roof top and crack standard glazed domes. In these cases, Dome’l recommends polycarbonate domes that are much more impact resistant to resist cracking and breakage.
Multi-wall polycarbonate provides top quality, diffused daylight and superior impact strength. Dome’l offers a range of systems from the most economical to models with superior thermal insulation.
