Key Takeaway: Our golf cart windshields are made from either 100% genuine acrylic or industry-leading 70/30 impact-modified resin.
Acrylic: Acrylic, also known as Plexiglass, is a plastic material found in a wide range of commercial products. What makes acrylic so popular is its versatility and ability to be molded and adapted to various uses. Acrylic can come in different thicknesses, colors, mirrored or non-glare, and other additional properties. In addition to its adaptability, acrylic possesses other assets that make it ideal for use in golf cart windshields. Optical clarity, impact resistance (10x more impact resistant than glass), natural weather and UV resistance, and others make acrylic an ideal choice. On top of that, acrylic is lightweight and easy to handle, so getting your windshield installed won't be a chore! Our windshields use 3/16" acrylic, an ideal ratio balancing optical clarity, strength, and flexibility for the perfect blend of form and function. Don't just take our word for it, read the experts.
Impact-Modified: Our 70/30 impact-modified windshields are made from 70% impact resin and 30% acrylic. By utilizing this ratio, our windshields provide superior strength while at the same time still maintaining optimal visual clarity. Most windshield companies that claim "impact modified" don't disclose their resin ratios. The reason for this is they can increase their profit margins by putting minimal amounts of impact-modified resin into the windshield but still claiming impact-modified status. Our windshields are guaranteed to have the stated 70/30 impact-modified resin ratio.
