Plastic is a suitable replacement for normal glass. Thanks to the high strength of these panels and their high light transmission, you can combine the advantages of glass with the convenient properties of plastic. An ideal combination that can be used for many purposes. For example, if you have glass windows in your shed, a shovel is enough to break the window. Plastic windows, on the other hand, are very stable and robust. For applications that require a less breakable material than regular glass, but still need the same transparency, plastic windows are an ideal solution.

What exactly are plastic windows?

Plastic is often chosen as an alternative to normal glass. To the naked eye, plastic windows are just as transparent as normal glass. Plastic windows are very pressure resistant and can be used for applications such as aquariums and even police signs.

Suitable materials offers a wide range of acrylic and polycarbonate windows, both of which are good substitutes for glass. Choose between a crystal clear version or a beautiful tint for a stylish effect. This way you can be sure that you are making a durable, high-quality and also price-conscious choice. Acrylic is a well-known name and is stronger than normal glass. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is a little less well known but much stronger than acrylic.

The advantages of a plastic window

Plastic windows are more impact resistant than glass and do not break easily even under (very) high loads. Another great advantage of plastic windows is that the material is UV-resistant. This is good for a window material that is exposed to large amounts of ultraviolet radiation.

We are also happy to laser or saw the window to any size and shape you require. This way you can be sure that the new panel will fit your window exactly. In addition, all our orders are delivered to you securely packaged to minimise the risk of damage to the window during transit.

Our advice

Acrylic and polycarbonate are – as you can see from the product recommendations below – the most suitable products for use as windows. Both materials are translucent and stronger than normal glass. Polycarbonate is the front runner and can even be described as foolproof due to its high impact resistance. With both materials, you also have the choice of tinted versions, which can be used to create a special effect. However, tinted acrylic is also often chosen for functional reasons. For example, grey tinted acrylic is a commonly chosen material for the windows of a wine cabinet!
