The versatility of plastics can meet almost any requirement from designers and customers. Plastics are lightweight and durable and their versatility in colour, touch and shape is giving tremendous marketing advantages. The production of most plastic products is not energy intensive compared to metals, glass and paper. Plastics can be recycled at the end of use then play a major role in saving and conserving energy and power safety.

Hanwood offers Polycarbonate and Acrylic products as they both boast impressive levels of resistance to forceful impacts and can hold their own against the majority of alternative materials. Often a comparison is drawn between them and glass, this is because both plastics are highly resilient to damage and will easily brush off an impact that would have reduced a pane of glass into thousands of shards. This ensures the two products are right for a wide range of applications.
