Palram is a leading global manufacturer of semi-finished extruded thermoplastic sheets, panel systems and finished products.
Natural daylight is a source for many good things and is increasingly used as the main source for lighting in buildings.
On top of minimising the use of electricity to conserve energy, using natural daylight also greatly improves the quality of the work environment. In fact, natural daylight helps people feel better by triggering the release of serotonin.
Research demonstrates a clear correlation between classrooms with good natural light and improved student performance and even attendance. Daylight improves concentration so that working environments tend to achieve increased productivity, while research in retail areas suggests that many sales outcomes tend to improve in naturally lit locations.
The use of natural daylight in buildings is made possible through the installation of skylights.
Polycarbonate makes an ideal skylight material due to its unique combination of light transmission, weather resistance and inherent blocking of harmful UV radiation.
SUNTUF proposes many advantages. An advanced proprietary corrugation technology enables SUNTUF to be quickly matched into any given metal profile, allowing it to integrate into virtually any industrial building and many others.

Palram South Africa
Palram formed a base for activity in Africa in January 2009. Palram realised the potential embodied in its wide product range and solutions that are applicable in the African climate and local business activities.
Palram South Africa was established after merging with a local company. Located in Johannesburg, the branch offers many services, including warehouse stocking and supply on a large Palram product range which includes polycarbonate, PVC and acrylic sheets and panel systems, as well as finished products.
This product range helped establish the branch as an important supplier of high quality sheets for construction, display and other application markets. Customers from across the continent benefit from Palram’s production array spread across the globe through a local base who understands their language and their needs.
In light of the expanding business, Palram opened another branch in Cape Town in June 2012, that stocks and supplies the majority of the products utilised in that area.
