Hmm - good to know. I use the polycarbonate with the channels running
vertically (typically 6' height) and provide vertical supports every 2'.

When I tried a 4' span between vertical supports I saw some bowing - but
nowhere near the 8+" you describe with your Lexan. The two foot
horizontal span I've been using has worked quite well.
