Plastics in Construction


Commercial, Institutional, and Residential Greenhouses

Traditional materials like glass and metal have limitations in terms of weight, cost, and flexibility. With their lightweight, durable, and cost-effective properties, plastics have become a popular choice for greenhouse construction. They allow for innovative designs, efficient temperature control, and long-lasting structures, making them great for both commercial and residential applications.

Entryway Canopies

Entryway canopies serve as aesthetic elements and functional features, providing shelter from the elements. Plastics offer the best of both worlds. Their design flexibility allows for creative shapes and styles, while their durability ensures long-term performance, even in harsh weather conditions.

Bus Shelters and Specialty Enclosures

Bus shelters and specialty enclosures need to be cost effective, durable, and safe. Plastics meet all these criteria. Their transparent properties offer visibility, their lightweight nature makes installation easier, and their resistance to weather and vandalism makes them long-lasting.

Sloped and Curved Glazing

Modern architecture often features intricate designs, including sloped and curved glazing. Traditional materials like glass are not always feasible for such complex structures. Plastics, with their flexibility and strength are easier to shape and install, providing a robust and aesthetically pleasing solution.


Skylights must be made from materials that are both transparent and durable. Plastics fit the bill perfectly. They offer excellent light transmission while being resistant to impact, weather, and UV radiation.

Security Windows and Hurricane Glazing

Security windows and hurricane glazing are specialized applications where plastics excel. They offer the same clarity as glass but are much more resistant to impact. This makes them ideal for high-security areas and regions prone to severe weather conditions.

Sound Barriers

Noise pollution is a growing concern in urban areas. Sound barriers made from plastics offer an effective solution. They are lightweight, easy to install, and highly effective in dampening noise, making them ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

Lighting Lenses, Tubes, and Louvers

Good lighting is essential for any space. Plastics are widely used in lighting applications, from lenses and tubes to louvers. They offer excellent light diffusion properties and are available in various designs and finishes, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics.


While glass mirrors are common, plastic mirrors offer a lightweight and shatter-resistant alternative. They are especially useful in areas where safety is a concern, such as children's rooms or public spaces.

Furniture, Benches, and Tables

Furniture made from plastics is not only stylish but also functional. It is lightweight, easy to clean, and resistant to wear and tear, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

Corner Guards and Run Rails

Protecting the interiors of a building is as important as its exterior. Plastics are used for corner guards and run rails, offering a durable and cost-effective solution to prevent wear and tear.


Plastic pipes have largely replaced metal ones in modern construction. They are lighter, easier to install, and resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for various applications from plumbing to HVAC systems.
