AmeriLux and strategic-partner Duo-Gard view projects like the Houston Stadium as opportunities to create cost-effective solutions that exceed customer’s expectations. Understanding the stadiums desire to expand its branding efforts, AmeriLux provided a special “Orange” 50mm Thermoclick* sheet to portray the teams color.

As the exclusive distributor, AmeriLux is excited to offer the Lexan* 50mm Thermoclick* sheet – there is no other product like this in the U.S! The advantage of this material over others is its strength, superior insulating qualities, and UV protection. By investing in extensive warehousing capabilities, AmeriLux is able to stock sheets up to 38.7’ long in standard colors of clear and opal.
