Phase 5 Transit Hub - Polycarbonate Glazing Panels to Support Heavy Snow and Provided Cooling

Back to Home


Polygal’s 32mm Super 10 Wall Polycarbonate panels


Location / Environmental Challenges

The project specified that the material had to withstand snow loads of 70 lbs/sq ft in the winter time and on hot summer days, allow light though while providing a cooling effect.


Technical Challenges

The design required curved panels that had to be cold-formed on the job site.

Budget limitations also supported plastic over glass. This is because its light weight allowed for a more economical solution to the underlying structural support: a 6-35 aluminum glazing system.
