Informations PC

PC Profile panels are profiled continously by moulding material and for a thermoplast thight tolerances are applied due to the prescribed profile while using a special forming process.

Area of application:

The PC profile panels are utilized in hall constructions preferably for illumination of sidings and roof surfaces. The variety of types of profiles allows a combination of panels with other profiled materials (e.g. steel and aluminum), which results in a economically efficient and simple provision of daylight.

Delivery length:

Different types of profiles are available in various sizes in a short delivery time. Therefore corresponding cuttings of the panels can be done according to the individual needs. For transport and process-connected reasons lengths of 6000 mm should not be exceeded.

In the standard design PC profile panels are delivered in a nominal thickness of  0,8 - 1,2 mm.

PC profiles are available in "crystal clear" type in general and special profiles are also deliverable in other versions.

Transport and storage:

The storage of PC profile panels has to be dry and infinitely protected from sun- and heat radiation. Therefore an outdoor storage is only partially recommended and in case it is inevitable, the material must be covered with white, light- and wet impermeable foil. This covering should also be used right away after removing material while processing.

Drilling is done with a sharply grinded drill without applying high pressure. Dilling holes should be sufficiently large since there is a higher thermal extension of profile panels in comparison to other construction materials.

The expansion coefficient is approx. 0,08 (mm/m)°C, which results in a length variation of approx. 4 mm per m panel length in Central European climate.


Mounting is utilized via regular hexagon screws with washers and seals, but we kindly notice, that the washer's diameter has to be at least 23 mm. Mounting on a raised bead needs calottes or spacer and the maximum mounting distances have to be chosen according to our table. We are pleased to consign it to you upon request.

Panel walkabilit:

PC Profile panels are not walkable!

Walking on profile panels is only possible when there are running boards which cover at least two fields of purlin. In this case the applicable accident prevention regulations have to be observed. 

It is not permitted to step on the panels itself! Extreme danger of falling! 

Bearing surface:
All bearing surfaces ought to be coloured white, otherwise an accumulation of heat due to extreme solar radiation can occur under the panel. Deformations and long term discolourations including material damage are otherwise result of non-observance.


Soiling can be removed by a low concentrated detergent brine, but abraisive or corrosive additives ought to be avoided. After cleaning rinse with clear water. 

Resistance against chemicals:
PC profile panels are stable against many chemicals used during construction and a detailed list of resistances can be given upon request.

Length tolerance:

Due to differences in temperature and the mechanical cutting procedure the following tolerances regarding to the length of order is possible:

Length unti: 2, 4, 6, 8 m
Tolerance:+/- 4, 6, 10, 14 mm

A probable fitting addition is to take into account within the order.

Technical Data:

  • visible light: approx. 90%
  • Infrared: approx. 90 %
  • Ultraviolet: almost 0 %
  • Density: approx. 1,2
  • Temperature resistance: temporary, without load up to 115°C
  • Reaction to fire: normal inflammable B2 according to DIN 4102
  • With the material sealed openings ensure the deduction of smoke and combustion gas is set free at temperatures above 200°C

The type of light panels in PC is consistent to the trapezoidal profiles are in 35/207 and 40/183 available.

In general light panels are available in standard type 'crystal clear' or 'smoke- coloured'. Also other colours (smoke, yellow, green, white, red, brown and blue - transparent or opac) are possible due to an appropriate purchase volume. 

Upon request light panels can also be offered in a acryl surface hard-PVC-variant.

Walking on profile panels is only possible when there are running boards which cover at least two fields of purlin. In this case the applicable accident prevention regulations have to be observed.
