SAFETY GLAZING and ARCHITECTURAL USES

 

Acrylic and polycarbonate are glass-like plastics that are strong and light weight with excellent weather resistance and optical clarity.  We can supply full sheets or cut-to-size panels with a variety of edge finishes available.  

 

Acrylic and polycarbonate are available in clear, grey tint and opal with acrylic available in coloured tints and solid colours as well.  Both materials are available in a range of thicknesses.  We are happy to recommend which product and thickness to use depending on the use and the size of the panel required.  

 

ACRYLIC has a higher impact strength than glass and will not shatter like glass when broken.  Used for various purposes such as replacement window panels, boat windows and screens, caravan windows, fence and balustrade panels, internal fitouts, sign faces and much more. 

 

Plexiglass® and Perspex® are some of the well-known brands of acrylic.

Polycarbonate is the correct glazing choice where there is a potential for glass breakages.  With 250 times the impact strength of glass, polycarbonate is literally sledge hammer proof.  

 

This material is widely used for roof structures, machine guards, in schools and public buildings, correctional facilities, transportation terminals and in high traffic areas where vandalism is prevalent.   

 

It is available in clear general purpose "GP" which is non-UV stabilised, clear UV2 which is UV stabilised both sides, Abrasive resistant "AR1" or "AR2" which has a coating on either one or both sides.  Polycarbonate also comes in grey tint which is UV stabilised both sides and opal which is a translucent milky white colour and is usually UV stabilised one side only. 

 

We also supply Hygard which is ballistic grade polycarbonate panels for security windows/panels - used in banks; detention centres; money windows in Casinos, RSL & sporting clubs, 24 hour convenience stores & petrol stations etc.   

 

Lexan® or Makralon® are common brand names of polycarbonate.
