Polycarbonate plastic garden sheds wall and roof panels are practically unbreakable
Using polycarbonate for wall and roof panels of plastic garden sheds is a new application for one of the most incredible plastics ever invented. Polycarbonate was discovered in 1953 by Dr. H. Schnell at Bayer AG, Germany, and by one of those strange coincidences, independently a week later by D. W. Fox at General Electric Company in USA . In the years since, its immense impact resistance and chemical inertness have made it invaluable for an ever widening range of products from cockpit canopies for jet fighters to specialised laboratory equipment. Interestingly, nearly all the new cars made in Europe and USA have headlights glazed with polycarbonate.
Now PALRAM have released the ANTHRACITE range of plastic garden sheds with wall panels and roof manufactured from polycarbonate. Its inherent toughness resists practically any form of impact from cricket balls (even with a test cricketer bowling!) to hail storms – even a determined assault with baseball bats or hammers. Because of this, the polycarbonate plastic garden sheds don’t suffer from the dents, scratches and corrosion that can affect Zinc or Color steel sheds. Plastic sheds simply just look better for longer!
Polycarbonate plastic garden shed panels are not completely rigid – they will give slightly under impact, and consequently galvanised steel tube and aluminium extrusion frame members are used to provide structural integrity. In spite of this added structural detail, the PALRAM ANTHRACITE range is very competitively priced and the polycarbonate plastic garden shed is showing the potential to become a serious contender for the outside storage role in the near future.
