    Default Acrylic shower screens

    Does anyone have any information or knowledge about the pro's and con's of using 10mm acrylic for a shower screen instead of glass?

    It'll scratch. 10mm might be heavier than the glass normally used, too. But it will scratch easily. Did I say that it will scratch? Easily? And you might get annoying thermal cycling cracks in it, too. Oh, and it will scratch.

    +-1, What he said, oh and it might get scratches on it to. Do not use abrasive cleaners on this material it could cause scratches.

    Good luck.
