Window Replacement

Windows make up an essential part of any building, playing various structural, aesthetic, and functional roles. Just as important as their design or placement is the material from which they are made. Plexiglass, polycarbonate, Lexan, and other plastic window panels are gaining popularity across the United States for several reasons.

Whether you're a homeowner looking to make some changes or a contractor handling substantial building projects, there are plenty of good reasons to make plastic your first choice. Let's take a look.

You should be excited to know that plastic panels are incredibly robust and long-lasting. Acrylic window panels, for example, are up to 17 times stronger than glass panels. Plexiglass is considered an excellent choice for those living in areas prone to hurricanes and strong storms due to its ability to withstand impact. Your windows will last for as long as you could wish for without any need for replacement.

Safety and Security

If safety is a priority for you, then plastic should be your first choice. When glass breaks, it tends to shatter into potentially dangerous shards and posing a safety risk, especially where children might be involved. Lexan window panels do not shatter and will be hard to break through in the first place, meaning that accidents will be extremely rare.

In terms of security, it serves to recall that most burglaries are opportunistic, meaning that perpetrators will avoid a difficult target whenever they can. If it's taking them too long to break a window, many will give up and try their luck elsewhere. You can sleep a lot better with plastic windows fitted on your property.

Flexibility of Use

For construction projects, the glass will often be too rigid and difficult to handle should the architect or homeowner envision something creative or unusual for their window panel design. Plexiglass window panels are especially suitable for such purposes because they comprise flexible polymers that are easily molded, cut, moved, and installed.

Clarity and Transparency

It might surprise you to learn that certain plastics offer greater transparency than the glass itself. A clear plexiglass window panel, for example, is capable of transmitting light 90 % fidelity. Plastics will not start to get discolored as their thickness increased, unlike glass, and they will not give off a reflective glare in sunlight.

Unique Qualities

The sheer variety available to you in the world of plastic window paneling is impressive. You can have panels specially designed and manufactured to optimize any number of qualities or fulfill certain roles such as UV filtering, bullet resistance, light diffusion, static resistance, insulation, fluorescence, colors, and more.

Going Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate window panels are popular with clients whose particular circumstances might not be adequately served using plexiglass or acrylic window panel solutions. Extreme climatic conditions or more exceptionally heavy usage are the two major factors influencing this decision.

These windows are 250 times stronger than ordinary glass and up to 30 times stronger than acrylic types. This is even though it is much lighter than glass. These two qualities make it a great favorite with contractors and architects seeking to build projects where windows will have relatively little structural support.
