Safety and safe working is an extremely important part of the construction sector. Plastics make an important contribution to this in many different areas. We can distinguish between applications in construction that ensure user safety, or safe working with plastics in construction.
About Acrylic for construction
As clear as glass but about 25 times tronger and many times lighter. These properties make acrylic sheets extremely suitable for many special applications in the glazing sector. Acrylic sheets offer a safety solution in places where glass shards are absolutely undesirable, offer complete freedom of form as balustrades along stairs and can be found in many different versions for balcony glazing and balcony partitions.
- Virtually unbreakable
- Light weight
- Unique UV resistance
- Can be bent cold (min. radius 100x sheet thickness)
- Cold to edge (set)
About polycarbonate for construction
Polycarbonate distinguishes itself from other plastics by its optical purity in combination with a very high impact resistance. Polycarbonate sheets are as much as 250 times stronger than glass of the same thickness. This unique combination of hardness, impact resistance, weather resistance and transparency makes it particularly suitable for architectural glazing and security applications. Polycarbonate sheets are supplied by Amari Plastics in a number of different versions - from standard to super scratch-resistant, structured to flame-resistant and breakthrough-resistant to bullet-resistant versions.
