Acrylic vs. Glass
When compared to glass panels, acrylic garage door panels have several advantages. For example:
- They are more lightweight
- They have greater breakage resistance
- They reduce (or even eliminate) glare
- They provide better insulation.
With acrylic, you get the glass-like qualities of clarity, brilliance and translucence, but at half the weight and 250 times the impact resistance. Less risk of a breakage means less danger of having to deal with broken glass and the injuries that can come from it (not to mention the headaches!).
Acrylic panels are superior when it comes to blocking both UV rays and noise as well. Sheets of acrylic are better thermal insulators than their glass counterparts as they provide about 20% more insulation. In fact, the ordinary glass heats approximately 4 times faster than acrylic does, which means this option can reduce some of your garage’s heat and relieve some of the burdens on your air conditioner.
The only way to match these benefits with a glass panel is to have the glass toughened and tinted. This is why acrylic panels are usually the more affordable option.
