    I made them 2.5m long and using the sandwich method, there's no noticeable deflection at all.
    I think you could quite easily go 2.8>3.0 without issue.
    Used Axiome Clear 16mm Polycarbonate Sheets 2500mm x 840mm
    From a place called Build4Less.
    Then re used my aluminium box with knock in 90s on the corners from Metals4U.

    HI I used 10mm on my pond. 8ftx4ft sheets. these sit on alloy t bar and lay flat ontop of copping slabs. a few house bricks dotted on edges does the trick for me. keeped my water at 6 deg last winter.

    2200 gals pond. 3stage bakki, shower run by 10000 gal messner pump, 25w uv, easy pod, 10000 vari pump.
    my water is really clear

    Hi Johnathan Spray painted them seem ok. Keep them in a shed away from the weather.

    I float 8ftx4ft polystyrene floor insulation (50mm thick) directly on the water's surface, covering approx 70-80% of the water's surface. Cheap as chips. Works a treat. Can pick them up from Wickes etc

    Chuck a few bricks on top in high winds to stop them flying away.

    ...12 meters x 8 meters, i could even throw one frame away

    that would be so cool for winter....if it didn't break 50% of cover allowed on the permitted development regulations....
