Translucent building elements
Rodeca translucent building elements made of polycarbonate are extremely impact-resistant and weather-resistant. The multi-layer structure and thicknesses of 30 mm to 60 mm ensure best insulation values. Thanks to the tongue and groove connection that has been proven over decades, translucent building elements are easy to assemble. The use of coloured elements can make your building project even more unique.
- good thermal insulation
- high load resistance
- temperature resistant from -40° to +115°.
- light and easy to assemble
- available in numerous colours and variants

The 30 mm thick panel with 6 layers and a width 333 mm is the ideal solution for smaller façade areas where thermal insulation is not of paramount importance.
The 40 mm thick panels with 4 to 10 layers and a width of mostly 500 mm are the classics among the translucent building elements. These panels also offer a wide range of possibilities in terms of colouration and effects.
The 50 mm thick panel with 10 layers and a width of 495 mm is used where thermal insulation and span width are of primary importance.
The 60 mm thick panel with 12 layers and a width of 500 mm is the strongest available panel in our product range with the best U-value.

translucent building elements
Thanks to their low weight and the simple construction system, translucent building elements and accessories can be installed quickly and with little effort.
To do this, the panels are placed in the surrounding aluminum frame system and connected to each other with tongue and groove. Additional aluminum fasteners secure the panels – even with high wind loads.
- quick assembly
- light weight
- excellent thermal insulation properties
- extremely weather resistant
- high spans can be realized

Questions and answers
about our translucent building elements.
Usually, the choice of the right element depends on factors such as wind or snow load, required thermal properties or sound insulation properties, light transmission or even other project conditions. Feel free to contact us!
The light transmission of our products is expressed as a percentage – from 0% to 100%.
Depending on the colouring and choice of product, these values differ. Thinner products in a crystalline colouring allow much more light to pass through than thicker products in a dark colouring, for example. Light-diffusing colourations such as opal colours, or even matte surfaces can also let a lot of diffuse light into the building.
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.
In many fire protection concepts Rodeca panels are applied as a meltable surface in accordance with DIN 18230-1, because the melting temperature of polycarbonate is below 300°C.
