Thickness calculator

It’s quick and easy to find the correct thickness of the sheet material you intend to use with our thickness calculator.

It works like this:

  1. Identify the plastic sheet material you want to use.
  2. Whether you are going to mount the sheet vertically or horizontally will affect the calculation so view the right table.
  3. Find the dimensions of the sheet you require in the table.
  4. The thickness calculator will give you the correct thickness for the dimensions of the sheet.

Please note:

  • We calculate the thicknesses in our thickness calculator on the basis of small spans that are subject to little wind force.
  • We are assuming that the plastic sheets are properly fixed all round with glue, screws, slats or clamps.
  • Plastic sheet material will always “give” slightly.
  • Plexiglass ( acrylic sheet ) is not suitable for balcony screens because of the risk of breaking. Choose polycarbonate when installing balcony
  • screens as this material is almost unbreakable.
