Using the right fastener type and size for your specific application is very important. Each and every application can be different. When the wrong fastener is used, both the fastener and the panel may fail.
Never use nails to install polycarbonate or PVC panels. Nails do not allow for the expansion and contraction of panels with seasonal temperature changes. We recommend using screws with at least a 3/4” or greater washer for all polycarbonate applications. Washers distribute load to a wider area and help protect the surface of the panel from being damaged.
There are many factors to consider when selecting a fastener including length, color, panel thickness, type of structure, and even the environmental conditions — especially in corrosive or high-moisture environments. The right fastener selection will provide high product performance and prevent unwanted problems later on.
