    Polycarbonate is having the fire certification Bs1D0 according to EN 13501-1 and 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 cold bend it without cracking. Polycarbonate is unbreakable! Furthermore, the sheets are 50% lighter than glass and are UV-resistant.
