AmeriLux | DIY Tip of the Month

 “Creating Private Spaces”

Want to add privacy to a room or define areas in a large, open space? Build a room divider or partition with multiwall polycarbonate. Customize panels with printed art or photos.

Looking for a way to add privacy to your deck or patio? Multiwall polycarbonate is a great alternative to traditional screen panels, creating a private area while allowing natural light to filter in.

Add multiwall panels to your gazebo or pergola for more privacy and enjoy protection from the sun, wind and rain. Order panels cut-to-size for quick and easy installation!

Multiwall polycarbonate is available in translucent and opaque colors. Panels are light in weight and easy to install with basic carpentry tools. Ask for a quote. Call 888.602.4441 today!

The Hub at Times Square NYC

“Kiosks Feature Polycarbonate”

Located in the heart of Manhattan, Times Square was the recent home to the latest Hub Culture experience. The temporary installation featured new experiments in mobile design architecture including a virtual reality studio, a creative meeting lounge, and a new form of kiosk.

Modified twenty-foot shipping containers, the mobile design units demonstrated creative ways of integrating repurposed materials. The collection of mobile units were all created with circular economy and cradle-to-cradle initiatives in mind.

The custom-built kiosks were designed using aluminum and LEXAN™ THERMOCLICK™ 40mm opal polycarbonate panels. The benefits of using LEXAN™ THERMOCLICK™ for this type of application are many. The product is light in weight, making it easy to handle and transport. The multiwall x-structure provides high impact strength and breakage resistance. The tongue and groove connection is designed for fast and easy on-site assembly. The inter-connecting system also eliminates the need for vertical profiles, enhancing overall aesthetics.

The 2017 Concept Collection is now in Bermuda at the Hub Culture Innovation Campus and Beach Club at Ariel Sands. The mobile units are serving as hospitality suites and hotel rooms for visiting members.

LEXAN THERMOCLICK is a trademark of SABIC
