A strong stable and cost effective natural lighting sheet. Maxilite is suitable for most industrial and commercial buildings where a low cost sheet is required. Maxilite is a quality 20 micron thick polyester surface film protected translucent sheeting warranted not to lose more than 30% of original light transmission after 10 years of use. Maxilite is the low cost option for commercial buildings helping your budget stretch a little further.

Sheet Characteristics

The useful life of Natural Lighting products is determined by their ongoing ability to allow sufficient light into the building. The following table gives a guide for the recommended use and the expected useful life based on light transmission. The long-term performance of Durolite products is enhanced by the use of a 100-micron integral gel coat surface rather than a laminated polyester film (Maxilite).
