Liteglaze acrylic glazing can be used both internally and externally. The clear acrylic sheet is lightweight, easily cut and its UV resistant layer makes it an exceptional solution for outdoor applications such as greenhouse and shed glazing. The high light transmission and excellent scratch resistance also makes Liteglaze suitable for indoor projects such as room dividers, door panels and secondary double glazing.

Styrene is the ideal solution for interior glazing and design applications. The lightweight nature of the sheet lends itself perfectly for projects inside the home such as picture framing, shelving and display cases. It provides a cost effective alternative to glass and with 5 times the impact resistance, it is much stronger and safer. Styrene provides good optical clarity making it the preferred material for wallpaper protection and splashbacks. It can be easily cut and drilled using the most basic of tools.

Corotherm Flat polycarbonate glazing provides exceptional strength with an impact resistance around 200 times more than glass, perfect for the toughest glazing environments both internally and externally. Corotherm Flat has a dual sided UV protective layer, high light transmission, and excellent durability making it perfect for applications such as canopy, veranda and greenhouse glazing. The ‘Class 1’ fire rated polycarbonate sheet makes it one of the safest glazing material to use as it is highly resistant to fire, a key consideration for use within the home.
