How can Plexiglas acrylic sheeting be used outdoors?

Due to its resistance to breaking, Plexiglas is a great option if your glass is going to be installed outdoors. These applications include

  • Greenhouses
  • Enclosed Patios
  • Decks

Using Plexiglas acrylic sheeting on your greenhouse makes it safer and more secure. The panels are less likely to be fractured, and even if they are, you avoid the sharp edges of regular broken glass. Consider Plexiglas for clear and sturdy walls and/or ceiling in your enclosed patio or sunroom. This product is also great if you want to make a deck or outdoor staircase safer for children. Decrease the risk of falls with Plexiglas acrylic sheets around the railings.

Can Plexiglas acrylic sheeting be used indoors?

Durable and appealing, Plexiglas has many uses inside your home or business. Consider it for glass shelves, showcase coverings, and display cabinet doors. Keep your collectibles in plain view with its clarity, and safe through the strength of Plexiglas acrylic sheeting. It can also be used to replace the glass in doors and sidelites, which are windows right beside a door. Plexiglas can even take the place of glass in framed pictures and can be used as a protective table-top. Installing a safety wall made of Plexiglas on your stairway or landing can reduce the risk of falls for young children.

Special features of Plexiglas acrylic sheeting

Plexiglas sheeting has more resistance to solar yellowing than standard safety glass composed of polycarbonate. In making the choice between these two, you will need to consider the amount of sun exposure and then balance the demands of security and visual appeal (since polycarbonate is even more durable). Additionally, Plexiglas is the less expensive of these two options, which is something else to take into account.
