1. Twinwall/multiwall is safe - upto 200x stronger than glass, twinwall and multiwall polycarbonates are incredibly impact resistant. In fact our twinwall and multiwall is bomb blast resistant!  Because it is virtually unbreakable it is a safe choice for the home and public spaces.

2. Twinwall/multiwall insulates brilliantly- twinwall polycarbonate has two thin sheets of polycarbonate separated by vertical dividing sheets; multiwall polycarbonate is the same with atleast three thin sheets of polycarbonate separated by vertical dividing sheets.  The thicker the multiwall, the more dividing sheets it contains.   The dividing sheets give this polycarbonate a fluted appearance and structure.  Air is trapped within the flutes which prevents heat escaping. Generally speaking the thicker the multiwall the higher the insulation; the thinner the twinwall/multiwall the higher the light transmission.
