What are the advantages of acrylic shelving?

Acrylic shelving is durable, shatter resistant, décor neutral and complements both retail and residential spaces. Acrylic shelves support and showcase an array of items of varying weights and sizes with the proper mounting accessories. Since acrylic shelves are practically shatterproof and impact-resistant, they can endure more pressure than glass shelving and offer comparable clarity, making them more dependable and a safer choice.


Will acrylic shelves bend or warp?

The number one reason acrylic shelves bend or warp is exposure to heat. Acrylic shelves do not have a high tolerance for heat and will begin to bend or warp at approximately 80 degrees F. For best results, keep acrylic shelving in a cool climate-controlled environment.


How much weight can an acrylic shelf hold?

The amount of exact weight that any given acrylic shelf can hold is exclusively dependent on its thickness. However, what is known is that acrylic shelving is approximately 30 times greater than its glass pane alternative of the same thickness, making acrylic shelving a safer and more prudent choice.
