Heavy Weather, Storm & Crime Protection 122711

Polycarbonate Sheet:  200-250 Times Stronger Than Glass!


Our polycarbonate sheet is a flat, rigid product.  Thousands of people use it on their homes not only for crime protection, but also  in the winter and summer months to create an insulating air space between it and their regular windows, saving them hundreds of dollars on heating and cooling costs!

This page is for those in interested in our polycarbonate sheet for HEAVY WEATHER, STORM and CRIME PROTECTION.
What we have is a CLEAR, see through material that is 200-250 times stronger than glass. Our customers are using this to cover windows and doors for protection from storms, hurricane damage, and crime.

Please note that we are not builders or ballistics/structural engineers. We are not experts in whether or not it is "hurricane approved", accepted by your town's building codes, etc. That is up to you to determine. We are material suppliers. We sell an extremely strong and durable material-the rest is up to you.

Ask yourself a few questions:
"Do I want just glass on my windows, or polycarbonate which is 200-250 times stronger than glass?".
"If I threw a brick at my present window (even so-called hurricane windows), would it smash right through?"
With our polycarbonate sheet, most bricks, stones, rocks, baseball bats, two-by-fours, tools, etc. are deflected!

We ship to FLORIDA, CAROLINAS, TEXAS,  and ALL other coastal states every day.
We ship all over the USA. We have THOUSANDS of sheets in stock.


Our most popular thickness is 1/4".
We Now Have Ultraviolet Resistant Polycarbonate.

Need something clear, strong, and almost unbreakable? This
material is 200-250 times stronger than glass! Known by many trade names
such as Paltuf, Palsun, Lexan, Tuffak, Makrolon, and Hyzod. High tensile strength. Clear,
strong, and tough. Excellent for windows in high-crime areas. Easy machining.

Many can ship UPS. You must choose Motor Freight for those specified. Motor freight will ship prepaid & add unless you specify your carrier information (freight collect) in the comments section at checkout.

Tolerances: Thickness +/- 10%. Length and width +/- 1/4". When we buy 48" X 96" sheets from the manufacturer, they give us a tolerance of +/- 1/4" on length and width. We also use a 3/16" thick blade to cut heavy materials, which reduces the finished size of your sheet.  Sheets under 48" X 96" will likely be under, not over. We will be happy to quote a price for sheets that you require to be at or over the specified size.
Dimensions given in inches unless otherwise specified.

We now custom cut at a small additional charge, $1.00 per piece. Here's how to get it done:

1). Choose the stock size that is larger than the size you need and enter the quantity. Click "add to cart"

2). In the text box BELOW the item on the checkout page, write the size that you would like it cut to. Specify the size in whole and fractional INCHES. Example: 23 X 16-1/4. No need to put inch marks ("). We will consider all figures to be inches-DO NOT SPECIFY IN FEET. Do not put any other information in the text box, only the size.

3). Checkout, or continue shopping. Thats it! We will custom cut it to your specified size, we keep any cutoff pieces.

Please Note:

A). We will not cut a piece into many smaller pieces, we will only reduce it to one size. We keep any cutoffs. We cannot do shapes other than a square or rectangle.

B.) Except as noted above, cutting tolerance is +/- 1/16". This means that your piece may be over or under your requested size by 1/16". Note that the initial tolerance of the piece we begin with is +/- 1/4", which may affect your requested size. As an example, say you wanted our 1/4 X 24 X 24 custom cut to 24 X 19. Since the piece we start with is already 1/4" undersize due to the initial tolerance, we are cutting from a piece that is actually 23-3/4 X 23-3/4. Therefore, the piece we send you will be actually 23-3/4 X 19. If it had to be exactly 24, you would have to order a larger size. We cannot accept returns because you failed to recognize this, so please be sure!

C). Edges are sawcut. We do not finish edges. Because of tolerance and thickness variations, do not expect all pieces to fit together properly if you are building a box, aquarium, etc. Finish sizing is up to you.

D). If you are ordering MANY of the same item and only want SOME of them custom cut, enter them separately. For example, if you want 5 pieces 24 X 24 but only need 2 of them custom cut, place '2' in the quantity box, add it to your cart, then specify the custom size. Then go back to that page and put '3' in the quantity box and add it to your cart.

E). Cutting charges will be added. 800-269-3163
