If you’re looking to upgrade the windows in your race car, there are several options available. One of the most popular is Lexan. It’s an incredibly strong and durable material that can be used in a variety of ways. It’s also very easy to install and can be a great replacement for traditional glass & Plexiglass.
The most common use for Lexan is as a windshield. It is extremely tough and can withstand extreme temperatures. It is also a much lighter material than glass and can save on fuel costs by reducing the weight of the vehicle. The material can also be molded to create bulletproof windows for police cars and armored vehicles.
Another advantage of Lexan is that it can be cold-formed on site from flat sheet into tighter curves than acrylic. This allows for the creation of curved architectural glazing without the additional fabrication and pre-forming costs associated with acrylic. Additionally, Lexan can withstand far more heat than acrylic, as it can be cured and formed at temperatures up to 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lexan can be fabricated and cut into any shape needed for your project. We often create dimensional signage for our clients using Lexan, including pylon signs, reverse channel letters and halo-lit signs. Lexan can also be used to make light boxes, sign panels, awnings and other decorative, informative or directional signage.
