There are many reasons why you should consider an acrylic box. If you are looking for a transparent box for storing and highlighting things, you have limited options available, but the material you choose is essential. The two most popular materials are acrylic plastic and glass. For many reasons, acrylic is the better option. Here are some reasons why:
Acrylic is considered up to 50% lighter than glass, but at the same time, acrylic is also much stronger. The most significant advantage of acrylic over glass is that it is more durable than glass. Because of its lightweight and durability, custom acrylic displays are an excellent option for heavily trafficked stores and spaces. Acrylic is weather resistant, and glass is not. Under high impact, a piece of glass will shatter, whereas acrylic breaks into larger pieces that have dull edges. Acrylic has a built-in safety feature that glass cannot replicate. Therefore, many sliding doors, shower doors, and aquariums are built from acrylic plastic.
Acrylic is also easy to shape and fabricate. Custom acrylic displays are cheaper and easier to make than glass variants. Laser cutting acrylic makes it possible to custom cut unique and detailed shapes. Engraving on acrylic is also rather simple.
