ADVANTAGES OF 3 mm ACRYLITE® RESIST HIGH IMPACT ACRYLIC WAVE PROFILE

  • Extremely UV-resistant, with a 30-year guarantee against yellowing.
  • Offer excellent protection against harmful UV radiation. Safe and easy to handle.
  • Hail-resistant with a 10-year guarantee for withstanding hailstones with a kinetic energy of 1 joule.
  • Much thicker than many other corrugated sheets and therefore offer high inherent rigidity and loadbearing capacity resulting in much less deflection under snow load, making them safer and more attractive.
  • Excellent light transmission and brilliance.
  • Distinct, stylish appearance.
  • Quick and easy to fabricate and install using simple tools. Can be point fastened. Special weather-seal calottes and fasteners available.
  • Available in various colors and textures, also available in ACRYLITE® Heatstop.

WARRANTIES

Non-prorated, full replacement 30 year non-yellowing, 10 year light transmission and 10 year hail warranties. For details see warranty.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

3 mm ACRYLITE® RESIST HIGH IMPACT ACRYLIC WAVE PROFILE is built to last using environmentally sound manufacturing processes in facilities that have received ISO-14001 environmental certification. In addition, if the time does come for replacement, ACRYLITE® can be recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.
