Roofing material reduces interior heat, saves energy
Makrolon Multi-Wall UV sheet roofing material offers heat-reduction properties, low weight and flexibility. Results in 25% energy savings. The 5X structural sheet comes in thicknesses of 25 mm, 32 mm and 40 mm. Compared to commercially available standard sheets, material reduces heat levels in the interiors by up to 50% (relative to the total degree of energy penetration), while still maintaining the same level of high exposure to light.
