Acrylic is often used where safety and ease of handling are concerns. It is many times more impact resistant than conventional plate glass and has similar impact strength compared to tempered glass. In addition to its excellent impact strength, acrylic sheet of the same size and thickness is half the weight of glass.
High impact strength and light weight make acrylic sheet the choice of people who care! Acrylic also feels warm to the touch, not cold like glass, because it is a better heat insulator. Compared to glass it has a lower coefficient of thermal conductivity.
