16 mm ACRYLITE® Resist is a high impact acrylic double-skinned sheet that is light transmitting, heat insulating and highly weather resistant. Made from impact-modified acrylic (polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA) polymer, it is used mainly as glazing for sloped roof and vertical applications. This product is ideal for situations that require a high load-carrying, long-lasting, glazing material with exceptional impact resistance, hail resistance and toughness combined with easy installation.
The advantages of using 16 mm ACRYLITE® Resist in greenhouses and controlled growing environments include:
- extraordinary clarity with UV resistance offering protection against excessive amounts of UV radiation
- Added protection from a completely non-toxic biologically neutral Anti Algae Application that prevents algae, mosses and pollen from adhering to the sheet encouraging decomposition by the natural UV radiation from the sun
- greater impact resistance during transportation, handling and installation
- greater hail resistance with a 10-year warranty for withstanding hailstones with a kinetic energy of 1 joule
- high light transmission in the PAR and visible spectral energy wavelengths – 86%
- insulating values are offer energy savings of up to 50% and reduced CO2 emissions
- patented NO DRIP anti-condensate control coating that, when installed on the outside of the roof, maintains optimal transparency even in bad weather and causes condensation to flow off as a continuous self-cleaning film
- when installed on the inside of the roof, patented NO DRIP coating prevents uncontrolled dripping that can result in crop damage and disease
- easily customizable with stock lengths available up to 28 feet and custom lengths up to 36 feet
- choice of colours available includes Clear, Bronze, Solar Cool White, Light White, Sunglass Gray, HEATSTOP Pearl and HEATSTOP Cool Blue
- 30-year non-yellowing, 10-year light transmission guarantees
When subjected to a uniform snow load of 15 lb/sq.ft., the 47-1/4” wide sheet, installed on 4 ft. centers, can be installed without any additional cross members up to 16ft. in a suitable aluminum assembly glazing system. Refer to load chart for additional detail.
