View Full Version : Acrylic Sheeting

11-11-2003, 01:02 PM
Ok I Read A While Back About Using 1" Acrylic Sheeting For Windows On Enclosures. I Wasn't Sure Has Anyone Used This Before? Is It Like A Solid Plastic Type Material? I'm Working On A Whole Setup Design To Change The Bottom Portion Of My Trunk So Can Acrylic Sheeting Support Some Weight?

Any Help Would Be Appreciated

Acrylic is very strong, especially in 1" thickness.

We use 1/4" acrylic for some displays here at my work, supported (hanging) by just two 3" acrylic "arms".

I've actually tested it before, and just one of them held a 12" L7 and a couple thick books, before it broke.

So, yes 1" acrylic would be very strong. Especially if the "foundation" is strong.

Ok And What About 1/4" Lexan?? Any Experience With That? Also Where Can You Get Acrylic Sheeting?

Either go to the "Select Products" link in the menu, then go to the next page, and look under "Plexiglass" or use the category index and go straight to "Plexiglass."

a full sheet is almost always expensive. It's not cheap to make thick plexi sheets.

Search for 'plexiglass' Not too expensive I dont think.
