Is plastic/acrylic better than glass for replacement boat windows and screens?

We are often asked if plastic/acrylic is better than glass for boat windows, screens and more.

Like with all purchasing decisions there is a range of factors to consider.

Glass tends to more expensive, and is considered more durable.

However, most boat owners are price conscious and plastic/acrylic is far more cost effective than glass. Marine-grade plastics are highly durable and fit-for-purpose.

What materials do you recommend for curved boat screens, shields and windows?

When looking for a curved boat screen/window/shield, as marine and boat plastics specialists, we highly recommend acrylic or Perspex® as the most suitable options.

There are many advantages to using, Perspex® and acrylic. Each have their own benefits

Therefore if you are in the market for a new curved boat screen, shield or window, contact us today for more information.

Boat hatch covers and liners; what are they?

A boat hatch cover is essential in protecting the acrylic lens of deck hatches.

A boat hatch liner helps keeps the hatch watertight. Therefore boat hatch liners reduce the risk of flooding and damp.

How much do boat windows cost?

Great question. Of course, we are asked how much do boat windows cost all the time! However, there is no simple answer. This all depends on a number of factors. For example, this includes:

  • The material used – Perspex®, standard acrylic, or polycarbonate
  • How many boat windows you need
  • The size of each window
  • Labour costs can vary from supplier to supplier

Typically, Perspex® is a premium type of acrylic so will cost more than a standard variety. If you need five boat windows, that will obviously cost more than three.

Furthermore, if you order your boat windows from a reputable supplier, they will carry a premium that is always worth paying.

What are the different types of boat window materials?

There are four different types of boat window materials. Each has its own benefits, advantages, and drawbacks.

To confirm, the different types of boat window materials are:

  • Polycarbonate
  • Perspex®
  • Acrylic
  • Coated vinyl

Here is a quick benefit to each:

  • Polycarbonate is considered practically unbreakable
  • Perspex® is a branded, premium acrylic and is, therefore, a quality choice
  • Acrylic is clear and offers super visibility
  • Coated vinyl is cheap and is a bit better when it comes to scratching (but that’s it).
