Double-glazed acrylic windows
Comprising of two acrylic plastic panels bonded together, usually with a shaped outer and flat inner pane.
Window styles: Windows can be with or without an external frame although the construction of the double-glazed acrylic window fitted to both are identical. Opening windows normally are hinged from the top.
Fitted in the side, door and roof.
Available in clear and various tints. Grey tint is the most popular. Bronze tint is fitted to many models built up to 2005 but has been withdrawn as it was found not to be UV stable and this resulted in the bronze tint fading with prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Acrylic is relatively strong but is susceptible to cracking if it sustains a hard impact to the edge. Cracks cannot be repaired. The surface of acrylic is also susceptible to scratching.
