Why Plexiglas?

Color fidelity:

Light shining through Plexiglas® is virtually not filtered. When availing (white) glass, there is light distortion to a greater or les- ser extent. White glass provides no higher translucency than float glass. Not in the least does white glass possess the transparency of Plexiglas®.

Specific density:

The density of acrylic glass is close to that of water. Thus, light refrac- tion and with that optical distorti- on are significantly weaker than it is the case with glass tanks. The density certainly makes its presence felt in terms of the total weight. Plexiglas® is only half as heavy as ordinary glass.

Heat insulation::

The thermal conductivity of Plexiglas® is substantially lower than of ordinary glass. Among the benefits are energy savings and in the case of cooled tanks the isolation quickly makes itself positively felt.

Break resistance:

Thanks to the high degree of flexibitity, acrylic glass is more break-resistant than ordinary glass. This not only proves to be an davantage with regard to po- sitioning and maintenance.

Deformability / Workmanship:

Whether cylinder, ellipse, conca- ve- or convex-bent segments, there is no limit to the deformabi- lity of acrylic glass.


Specific multi component glue guarantees a permanent, bubb- le-free and transparent conjuncti- on of the glue seams. The 30-year weather resisitan- ce warranty privides you with a durable high-end product.
