Polycarbonate Sheeting Sydney – what you need to know

01st Aug 2016

Polycarbonate Roofing are suppliers of Polycarbonate sheeting in Sydney.  We can supply direct to your door from our Sydney warehouse, or you can collect. If your looking for Suntuf, Laserlite, Sunlite, Makrolon, Sunpal, Sunglaze or just about any polycarbonate product we are able to supply it direct from our Sydney warehouse.


Sydney has specific climate conditions and these may influence your choice of polycarbonate roofing.

Sydney and surrounding areas enjoy a temperate climate, with mild winters averaging temperatures of 9 degrees and average summer temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius. Sydney can also be prone to the occasional (though recently more frequent) thunderstorm. Given these conditions, there are a few key considerations when choosing the right polycarbonate product for your area.


Summer temperatures are moderate with cooler temps in winter, meaning that you may want to consider choosing a colour that allows a moderate amount of heat to pass through, keeping the polycarbonate covered area warmer in the winter but not too hot during the warm summer months. Keep in mind that there are other factors that will also play a part in the apparent temperature in an area, such as orientation, roof height and shading.  Read more about environmental factors to consider when choosing polycarbonate colours here.

Twin wall or Multiwall or thicker solid sheets may also provide an advantage by providing increased insulation factor.  This can also be helpful in keeping areas cool in summer and warm in winter.  Investigate the U-Values of a few of the different products to help you decide on what might be appropriate in your situation.


In recent years Sydney has been hit hard with some damaging storms. While all polycarbonates offer great impact resistance, some products will offer more robust solutions than others.  Standard profile sheets offer a base line option, thicker profiled sheets a step up while thicker solid sheets will be the most robust.

Getting your sheets

Need polycarbonate products delivered anywhere in Sydney? We can deliver to your door or job site.  Or if you would prefer to pick up we have a few Sydney locations that you can collect from.  Don’t forget that if you intend to pick up, you will need to be able to handle a length at least as long as you roof.  Many of the sheets can be rolled… but they will still be long rolls.

We can help with advice on what products are best suited to different situations and give you a quote including delivery to anywhere in Sydney.  So what are you waiting for – have a look over the rest of our detailed website, or if you would prefer to talk to someone give us a call to discuss your needs.

So Sydney, we’ve got you covered for all your polycarbonate needs.

    1. Hi Pauline

      Yes – we do have an outlet in Melbourne… we can arrange for you to collect or to have it delivered from our Melbourne warehouse.

  1. Hi. Do you cut to length? Say 2m for example if I wanted 10 sheets x 2 m Suntuf clear corrugated?

    1. Hi Peter
      Yes we can cut sheets to lengths as required. For example 10 x 2m would be cut from 3 x 6m sheets (=9 x 2m) and the last one would be cut/charged at 1 x 2.4m.
      Let me know if you need any further info.
      Regards Judy

  4. I am in Sydney only this morning, so I hope I can get a reply.
    I need two x 3mtr lengths of polycarbonate, corrugated roofing sheets.
    Where could I pick them up from?
    Where is closest to Bondi?

  5. Hi there. I’m replacing the roof overhang/awning at the back of our house. Do you stock the Suntuf Beehive clear sheets? They look like the sort of thing I’m after. I need 7 sheets, of the smallest you have (1.8m?) as I need to cut them down to 1.55m, or could you cut them to 1.55m for me (very happy to pay for the 1.8m sheets, of course!). Thanks.

  6. can you recommend any roofers in the southern highlands area that can replace and install your roofing pls?

    1. Hi Stuart
      Thanks for your enquiry.

  7. Hi Team,
    I want to enclose our front veranda to reduce heat and improve insulation in winter too.
    I need 9 sheets of 2 meter length and 0.980 meter wide.
    How much would this be if picked up in Sydney and how much when delivered to Mudgee NSW?

  8. Hi Team,
    Which product will cut heat but leave the most light passing through. I would guess one is a trade off for the other but what you recommend for a deck cover please? What would the lifespan of that product be?

    1. Hi Chris
      Thanks for your enquiry. Yes it is a trade off but the colour that gives the best balance is the Suntuf SolarSmart Diffused Ice. If you look at the Suntuf page on the web site you can see all the light and heat transmission for all the colours.
      Regards Judy

  9. Hi Team
    Do you have a showroom in Sydney that I can visit to select the most appropriate product and colour for my domestic project?

    1. Hi Bryce

      Thanks for your enquiry. We sell various brands of polycarbonate so if you email us at sales@polycarbonate.com.au with which product you would like to see we can advise warehouse you would need to visit. Alternatively we can arrange for samples to be sent out.
      Regards Team PCR

    1. Hi David

      We supply directly from warehouse so depending on what product you are wanting would be either Wetherill Park or Horsley Park in Sydney.
      You will need to pre-order/pay prior to collection i.e. no direct sales from warehouse location.

      Regards Team PCR
