General / Commercial Grade

Modern architecture often features large glazed areas aimed at capturing as much natural light as possible to create a sense of spaciousness. Unfortunately, today is also the scene of increased urban crime and vandalism. Glass tends to invite attack, increasing
the risk of personal injury.

Polycarbonate is a high strength glazing material, with exceptional clarity, safety, security and energy savings, allowing design freedoms architects demand today. It is up to 250 times stronger than glass and some 30 times stronger than acrylic. For use in any glazing  or safety application.
