Acrylic can be used to enhance your environment and create visually beautiful results.. Transmitting 92% of all visible light and high tensile strength and rigidity, light weight and good impact resistance, 

Other key properties include:

  • A high gloss, hard surface

  • 1/3 the weight of traditional float glass and five times as strong

  • Easy to clean – the high gloss surface makes it easy to clean, keeping maintenance costs to a minimum

  • Excellent environmental credentials – An efficiently produced, non-toxic pure material with a long service life



The smooth and non-porous surface of glass is very effective in preventing transmission of viruses and glass can easily be cleaned and maintained.

Our tempered glass is an ideal surface for writing and exchanging of ideas. Magnetic glass is also available.




Polycarbonates are extremely robust, lightweight with glass-like transparency and is impact resistant. Although it has high impact-resistance, it has low scratch-resistance.

Polycarbonate is highly transparent, with better light transmission than many kinds of glass. Polycarbonate has an impact resistance 200 times better than glass. And while it is a much stronger material, polycarbonate is 50% lighter than glass.

Polycarbonate provides a very easy to clean writing surface using dry-erase markers.
