Botanical Gardens, Conservatories and Zoos
To thrive, tropical environments and habitats require a natural full light spectrum. ACRYLITE® ’s unique spectral options allow these environments to be artificially replicated to achieve the conditions dictated by the application.
ACRYLITE® acrylic multi-skinned sheet’s light-transmitting and energy efficiency properties deliver high levels of natural, diffused sunlight, creating a bright, comfortable and safe environment for people, plants and animals. The ability to reproduce desired lighting conditions combined with an exceptionally long service life and significant savings in annual energy costs mean a high level of product satisfaction for curators of acrylic-glazed facilities.
Glazing with ACRYLITE® helps contribute to a healthier environment through reduced energy use, reduced emissions, environmentally-sound manufacturing processes, certified facilities and elimination of harmful chemicals. Long product life means less old glazing going to landfill sites due to premature failure, but if it must be replaced, ACRYLITE® is recyclable for use in making consumer goods.
Upon combustion, other plastic coverings produce thick smoke and toxic gases that are harmful to people and the environment. Deterioration from UV rays changes the burning characteristics in many plastics, but thanks to ACRYLITE® ’s UV stability, its characteristics do not, so in the event of fire, ACRYLITE® burns cleaner with less smoke and no release of toxic or corrosive gases. In addition, if the time does come for replacement, ACRYLITE® can be recycled for use in the manufacture of consumer goods.
