    WE Fashion Flagshipstore Amsterdam - PyraSied Xtreme Acrylic

    Sustainability was an important starting point for the design of the WE Fashion flagship store in Amsterdam. This is reflected in the use of materials. In the store, you will find various materials from our environmentally friendly plastics collection such as the Plasticiet materials in the fitting rooms.

    Polycarbonate from Pyrasied

    Polycarbonate is a transparent plastic that has exceptionally high impact resistance and is also known as Lexan® or Makrolon®. This material is 250x stronger in comparison to glass. The Lexan sheets are excellent to use for shatterproof glazing, wall cladding and roofing and are also perfect if you are looking for material that must be vandal-proof, burglarproof or extra safe. It is also appropriate to be used in machinery because it is practically unbreakable.

    Polycarbonate has an excellent fire certification of Bs1D0 according to European norm EN 13501-1. This classification indicates that this material is allowed to be used in public spaces, because of the high-temperature resistance. Lexan sheets are self-extinguishing and fire retardant.

    Another characteristic of this material is that it is easy to bend it without cracking. Polycarbonate is unbreakable! Furthermore, the sheets are 50% lighter than glass and are UV-resistant. This means that the material does not yellow when using in outdoor applications.

    If you are looking for material for one of these applications, then polycarbonate is the most suitable material.

    Mandatory VAT-number

    Dear customer,

    From 1 July 2021, new VAT rules will apply to Dutch businesses. Due to this new legislation, we have decided to only deliver to foreign customers with a VAT number. It is therefore not possible as a private customer to order in our webshop without a VAT number. We will of course be happy to refer you to a reseller.
