LUMAsite translucent panels from American Acrylic are a lightweight alternative to frosted glass. The shatterproof sheets are cast from 100 percent acrylic or modified polyester resins and reinforced with fiberglass. In design applications, such as the fence on this house by Glitsch, the fibers are often left visible to create a “silken cobweb” effect. Panels are available in a variety of sizes.
