ACRYLITE® Spectator Protection Acrylic


ACRYLITE® spectator protection acrylic (RinkShield) is the new standard in spectator shielding. The only Acrylic engineered to meet ASTM and NHL regulations. ACRYLITE® spectator protection sheet holds up to puck and player impacts, provides greater flexibility than tempered glass, clearer viewing for fans and easier, quicker changeover operations for facilities.

ACRYLITE® spectator protection outperforms professional hockey deflection benchmarks for spectator shielding. A three-fold reduction in reaction forces over tempered glass significantly reduces the effect of impact on players and the possibility of injury.
