Rubber Stops

Use our CLEAR Round Self Adhesive Rubber Stops on your Furniture Protector for a more secure finish or if you are concerned about possible slippage. Our packs contain 20 Rubber Stops.

The Rubber Stops are approximately 11mm x 2mm in size and made of clear polyurethane coated with a powerful pressure sensitive adhesive to the back.
 
In practice we have found that using a pad approximately every 300mm to 500mm is extremely effective in stopping the furniture protector from moving about when in use.

Number of Holes

If you have ordered standard holes we will drill 5mm holes centred 25mm from the edges in each corner or evenly spaced (depending on how many you order) unless you tell us otherwise.
For panels 150mm wide or less the holes will be centred 15mm from the edge of the material unless you tell us otherwise. To avoid compromising the material, holes cannot be centred any closer to the edge than 15mm

If you would like to tell us exactly where you would like your holes drilling and the hole diameter you can do so as you checkout. Please provide your instructions to us in our 'Special Comments’ box which you will see before you pay for your order. 

Alternatively, if you have a drawing you can upload it and attach it with your order.

Can polycarbonate be used for glazing ?
Polycarbonate panes offer excellent clarity with the highest impact strength of any transparent glazing product.  Compared to acrylic panes of the same thickness and size it is around 30 times stronger; compared to equivalent glass panes it is over 250 times stronger.  This makes polycarbonate an excellent choice for glazing where security is key.
 
Does polycarbonate have a fire rating ?
Polycarbonate is Class 1 fire rated. This means it will extinguish itself.
 
How durable is polycarbonate ?

As polycarbonate is so strong, you can be confident you'll not need to replace the panels anytime soon. The material is also ideal for making cold frames and cloches, as well as replacing glass to make vulnerable doors and windows more secure.

How should polycarbonate be cleaned ?
We recommend using only warm soapy water with a soft, non-abrasive cotton cloth. Alteranatively you can use the polycarbonate cleaning products which are available here.  Do not use any chemicals as this will damage the polycarbonate

100 degrees centigrade long term; 130 degrees centigrade short term. Long term typically means between 5,000 and 20,000 hours operating at this temperature without losing more than 50% of its performance. Short term typically means upto 2 hours at any one time.
 
What’s the difference between polycarbonate and acrylic ?
They main difference is strength.  Polycarbonate is much stronger (about 30 times stronger) than acrylic. Polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable whereas acrylic can shatter. There are other differences which you can read on our data sheets here for polycarbonate and here for acrylic.
 
Why is polycarbonate good for greenhouse glazing ?

Our polycarbonate is 200x stronger than glass yet half its weight. This makes the material a superb, easy-to-use choice for replacing broken or existing greenhouse glass panels. We think it beats glass panels hands down - but don't take our word for it.
