Our fields of application.
Translucent building elements
tongue and groove panels
Rodeca translucent building elements made of polycarbonate are valuable in terms of function and design. Thanks to the flexible design options in terms of shape, colour and function, translucent building elements are particularly suitable for use in facades and roofs.
They are both, light-transmitting and heat-insulating, and assist in shape and colour against solar radiation and hail.

– Savenergy –
Recycling as a genuine contribution to improving Earth’s ecological situation is our mission.
Time and time again we encounter the prejudice that our products cannot be sustainable. Plastic has made such a strong impression on everyone’s world and has attracted so much negative attention, especially in recent years, that it is difficult to break away from this misconception.
We produce components that remain as part of an overall construction for decades. Even if the building is renovated or modified, this does not automatically mean that it has to be disposed of or destroyed.
Plastics can be recycled and reused by us in many ways. Polycarbonate in particular is a very high-quality raw material that, even after recycling, can be used again for other applications or as a new raw material mixture for completely different purposes. The best examples of the sustainable reuse of polycarbonate elements that have already been used are our Savenergy panel and our Savenergy corrugated sheets.

Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic polymer. This means that it is one of the few plastics that can withstand high temperatures. It is a strong, hard and transparent material that is 250x stronger than conventional glass. In addition, polycarbonate weighs considerably less than glass. Despite its very robust product properties, polycarbonate is very easy to process and can be used in a wide range of applications. Please visit our products section for more information.
Our products have more than one lifetime.
Thanks to our sophisticated technologies, facades and roofs made of polycarbonate can be converted back into moldable granules after use. Recycled by global value cycles, it can be incorporated into new products worldwide.
