If you find yourself looking for a safety glass that is lighter and even more difficult to break than a tempered glass then you should consider using Plexiglass as an alternative to the typical “glass” options. Plexiglass is an acrylic resin that provides the same function and glass-like appearance of regular glass but offers an increased strength, durability, and variety of sizes and colors. From clear (transparent) to colors (opaque) green, yellow, blue, black, red, white and more, there’s a color to fit any need.   CRT has Plexiglass available in both stock and custom size sheets and can be ordered in a variety of thicknesses (1/16”, 1/8”, ¼” and more).


Types of Uses for Plexiglas

Plexiglass can be used in place of regular glass in your home or business to fit your needs. Some indoor uses of Plexiglass include: Shelving, Cabinet Doors, Picture Frames, Display Units and Table Top Covers just to name a few.

Want to take Plexiglass outdoors? Because it has such a high resistance to breaking Plexiglass is a great alternative to glass usage outdoors for patio table tops, enclosed patios, decks, around railings to decrease the risk of falls, to even greenhouses. Plexiglass panels stand up harder to glass and are less likely to be cracked or broken, and if they happen to be cracked or broken the edges are still not as sharp or dangerous as regular broken glass.
