Lexan* Thermoclick* Wall Sheeting is mainly used in facade applications
utilising 40mm UV protected multiwall X-Structure sheeting that has a
profiled tongue and groove connection.
The inter-connecting system
eliminates the need for vertical profiles, potentially saving costs and enhancing
building aesthetics. The X-Structure of the sheet provides exceptional stiffness and

Light and Total Solar Transmission
In order to minimise moisture build-up and dust contamination inside the
sheeting, edge sealing of the open ends is very important. An
impermeable tape, and a perforated tape are available.
For standard glazing applications it is generally recommended to seal
the sheeting at the top end with an impermeable tape, and at the bottom
end, seal with an anti-condensation venting tape. A clearance
between the bottom sheet end and the profile platform helps allow for
In extremely dusty environments such as sawmills, welding stations, etc.
it is usually advisable to seal both the top and bottom sheet ends with
Thermal Expansion Allowance
Take into account a clearance of approximately 3mm per lineal metre
between the top edge and top glazing profile, and between the first and
last sheet sides and the side glazing profiles. This thermal
expansion clearance is already taken into account when using the
specially developed top and bottom glazing profiles available from
Periodic cleaning using correct procedures with compatible
cleaners is recommended to prolong service life. For general
cleaning, it is recommended that the following instructions be adhered
to. Clean the surface with high pressure water, mild soap &
lukewarm water and/or steam cleaner. Use of additives to the water
should be restricted to those compatible with Lexan* Thermoclick* sheet.
More detailed cleaning information is available from Ampelite offices.
- Never use an
abrasive or highly alkaline cleaner on Lexan* Thermoclick* sheet.
- Never scrub with
brushes, steel wool or other abrasive materials.
- Don't clean Lexan*
Thermoclick* sheet in the hot sun or at elevated temperatures as it
can lead to staining.
Lexan* Thermoclick* sheet can be cut easily and accurately with most
standard workshop equipment. This includes common circular saws
and jigsaws with fine-toothed blades. The panel should be clamped
to the worktable to avoid undesirable vibration, and the sawdust should
be blown out of the channels.
Lexan* Thermoclick* sheet should be stored and protected against
atmospheric influences like sun, rain, etc. Care should be
exercised when handling and transporting Lexan* Thermoclick* sheet in
order to prevent scratches on the panel surface and damage to the
On most sloped roofing applications a minimum fall of 10° is advised to
allow for rainwater drainage. For additional watertightness a
silicone sealant (compatible with Lexan* Thermoclick*) can be applied in
the groove between the panels.
Never use Lexan*
Thermoclick* sheeting to support a person's weight during installation
or cleaning. A temporary wooden plank supported by the roof
structural members should always be used.
Maximum Recommended Span "H"
Lexan* Thermoclick* sheet glazing recommendations without
/ suction in N/m2
When glazing height
exceeds the maximum recommended span "H", intermediate horizontal
purlins should be used to support the sheet. Fix sheet to the
purlins with special non-rusting metal fastening clips positioned in the
double sided tie on both panel sides. The distance between the
horizontal intermediate purlins should not exceed the maximum
recommended span dimensions "P" as indicated in the table below.

Lexan* Thermoclear* Solar Control IR
With new 5 Star Energy Ratings calling for optimal efficiency, architects are
increasingly seeking to maximise natural light, whilst maintaining aesthetics
and reducing lighting costs. Intensive use of glazing however, can result in
excessive heat build-up, resulting in increased energy costs associated with
cooling the building.
GE Advanced Materials new Solar Control IR Sheet represents an entirely new
technology in the challenge for energy efficiency. Proprietary resin additives
are used to block near-infrared heat, whilst maintaining high light transmission
levels. Studies have shown that this can result in energy savings of 25-40% in a
temperature controlled environment!
Lexan* Solar Control IR sheeting is available in both the multiwall Thermoclear*
range, or as monolithic sheeting. The sheeting is also available in green, blue
or grey tints.
The new Direct Factory Outlets development at Essendon Airport, Melbourne has
become the first building in Australia to use Solar Control IR Sheet. It
incorporates approximately 550m2 of blue Lexan* Thermoclear* Solar Control IR
sheet in 16mm 3X profile!
Lexan* Thermopanel* / Thermoroof*
In addition to the extensive range of polyester sheeting and systems such as
Dual Roof and Clearslide, Ampelite can supply a range of insulated multiwall
panels that can be used in conjunction with metal sandwich panel sheeting. Lexan*
Thermoroof* and Thermopanel* sheeting provides excellent thermal insulation, high
stiffness and high light transmission for use in temperature controlled
Lexan* Thermoclear* Easy Clean
This is the world’s first self-cleaning polycarbonate sheet! UV protected on
both sides, Lexan* Thermoclear* Easy Clean sheet features a unique hydrophobic
coating on the outside surface that reduces the surface tension of polycarbonate
and increases the contact angle of water to the sheet. This causes larger
droplets to form and wash away dirt, leaving the sheet almost spotless.
Furthermore, it stays clean for longer, thereby reducing the frequency and the
associated cost of cleaning.
Lexan* Thermoclear* SunXP
In addition to the inherent properties of the Lexan* Thermoclear* Plus range,
Lexan* Thermoclear* SunXP offers UV protection as standard on both sides, but
with even higher resistance to UV radiation, yellowing and loss of light
transmission. This represents a revolutionary development in the use of plastic
sheeting in Australia’s harsh environment. For more information on the benefits
of GE’s patented surface coating technology, click here.
Lexan* Thermoclear* Dripguard
This innovative product is suitable for any roof glazing application in which
water droplets are unacceptable, such as commercial greenhouses or sensitive
food preparation areas.
Lexan* Thermoclear* Dripguard has UV protection on the outer surface and a
specially developed hydrophilic coating on the inner surface. This coating
reduces the formation of condensation droplets by increasing the surface tension
of the sheet and decreasing the contact angle. As a consequence, a thin mist of
water will form on the inner surface of the sheet, which will not drip and will
not affect the excellent light transmission of the material.
Lexan* Thermoclear* Hammered Glass
In this unique material, the addition of glass fibres into the sheet provides an
original “hammered glass” effect. In addition to the innovative look, it
provides UV protection on both sides, high light transmission and good
insulation properties. Typical applications include interior partition walls,
swimming pool enclosures and bathroom glazing.
Lexan* Thermoclear* Venetian Screen Print
Lexan* Thermoclear* Venetian sheets are UV-protected on the outer surface and
screen-printed with stripes or a honeycomb pattern on the inner surface. The
screen-printed sheet provides excellent aesthetics, together with a shadow
effect. This helps to reduce heat build-up from solar radiation, resulting in an
improved comfort level inside the structure or underneath the structure.
For viable quantities, a custom screen-printed pattern can be applied to the
sheet during manufacture. For smaller quantities, a standard clear or tinted
sheet can be screen-printed locally. Please contact your nearest Ampelite office
