We are experts when it comes to glass products, so we also know that some people are interested in alternative materials to suit the needs of their window and paneling projects. Diamond State Glass offers efficient and durable plastic products for our customers, partnered with the same high-quality repair, replacement, and installation services that we provide on every job.
Whether you’re going for a purely decorative window project to lighten up a room, or you’re looking to install a practical window system to increase visibility in your commercial workspace, we’ll use our expertise to give you the best type of plastics for your unique requirements. Are you not sure where to start? Below is a quick guide to the benefits of some of our current plastic products.
When looking outside of traditional glass for window, screen, or panel alternatives, acrylic is a great material to consider. Acrylic is cost-effective if you’re looking for something with optical clarity to cover an entire area while on a budget. Our experience ensures we’ll be able to shape the plastic to whatever size or frame you’re looking for, whether that’s for a new sunroom, conference room, shower door, or a protective shield for the cash register area of your business. There is also an increased safety benefit with acrylic. It’s more resistant to high impact blows, and if it does crack or break, the danger and clean up prospects are far less than broken glass.
Polycarbonate windows and panels are another great alternative to traditional glass, offering the same clear visibility as acrylic materials. These sheets have an incredibly high shatter-resistance despite their lightness, increasing protection from extreme weather or vandalism threats that might try to break through. It can even provide thermal insulation depending on where it’s installed. It’s also easy to cut and shape polycarbonate, so your customizable projects will be easier to create.
Adding a tint to one of our plastic window selections can be a stylistic and protective design choice for your home or business building. You can play with various colors to create a stained glass aesthetic or keep the tint simple and dark to increase privacy. Tints provide increased protection and reduced glare from external UV rays, which also protect any delicate furniture and décor elements prone to fading from sunlight exposure.
No matter which cut, shape, and size of window you need, it’s a challenge that we’re ready excited to take on at Diamond State Glass in Camden, DE. If you are set on upgrading your home or commercial building to an acrylic, polycarbonate, or tinted window system, contact us today!
