This was proven by our products after more than 25 years of successful outdoor use.
-Our positive curb frame seal stops wind, rain, snow and dust.
-Pliability of the seal permits free expansion of acrylic during atmospheric changes.
-Low conductivity of acrylic resists the formation of condensation.
-They act as a passive solar heating system. The increase in daylight transmission results in savings on heating and electricity
