Advantages of acrylic

High impact acrylic multi-skin sheet is lightweight, easy to fabricate, UV resistant and exceptionally weatherable. Today, more and more homeowners are recognizing that incorporating high impact acrylic multi-skin sheet into their home’s outdoor space not only increases and improves outdoor leisure time, it can also increase property value.

Safe, filtered and diffused light

Medical researchers continue to discover new findings illustrating the harmful long-term effects of exposure to the sun’s powerful rays. Patio covers made with ACRYLITE® acrylic multi-skin sheet temper the sun’s harsh heat, allowing enjoyment of the sun, without the risks. Available in a range of solar tints, these acrylic panels have been designed to block harmful UV rays and also block up to 80 per cent of the sun’s heat.

Extend the use of outdoor spaces

Homeowners who love the outdoors are all too familiar with the disappointment of being chased inside by scorching sunlight or a downpour of rain. Incorporating high impact acrylic multi-skin sheet into outdoor spaces allows homeowners to enjoy time outside, even in inclement weather.

Stands up to extreme North American weather

Perpetual heat waves, damaging hail, torrential rains and heavy winter snow are no match for high impact acrylic multi-skin sheet. This European-engineered acrylic is made with the most weatherable polymer available with unique properties that help it excel in the most extreme North American weather. It’s even protected with a 10-year hail warranty.

Never yellows and lasts for decades

Other plastics are no rival for acrylic when it comes to patio cover applications. Polycarbonates, fiberglass and other inferior plastics can quickly become brittle, discolored and unsightly. 

ACRYLITE® high impact acrylic multi-skin sheet is made with the most weatherable polymer available, will never yellow and comes with a 30-year non-yellowing warranty. Shatter-resistant and designed to withstand driving rain, howling winds, one-inch hail and harsh winter snowstorms, ACRYLITE® is also protected by a 10 year hail warranty.

An environmentally friendly alternative

When substandard patio coverings get damaged, they often take a direct trip to the landfill. Acrylic multi-skin sheets last for decades, and when the time does come to replace them, they can be recycled.
