Benefits of Acrylic for Modern Water Features
At Midwest Tropical, our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible products for the manufacturing of their water features. We believe the benefits of acrylic are well worth considering as you choose the materials for your next water feature design. Acrylic offers many of the benefits of glass — including the see-through design and natural light filtering — without the drawbacks. Unlike glass, acrylic is impact-resistant and lightweight. Your water feature can weigh significantly less than glass, while resisting damage better. This is important, because water creates a significant amount of pressure, and an acrylic water fountain will hold up well under that pressure. Acrylic is weather-resistant, so it is not going to be damaged by the constant exposure to water in one of our designs, nor will it fade with exposure to sunlight. This material won’t yellow or change color over time like other plastics, which is another reason we prefer it for our designs. It is easily shaped and molded, giving our designers great flexibility as we create your custom water feature. As you can see, there are many reasons you should consider an acrylic water feature for your space.

What makes acrylic water features a smart choice?
Weather Resistance – Retains Color
Acrylic has great weather-resistance and light-refracting capacities. When it comes to outdoor features, acrylic holds up indefinitely and resist weathering, protecting the colors. Acrylic paints have been known to be unaffected by light, so they retain their color. For indoor features, acrylic makes them easily lit due to its clarity and refractive capacities.
Lighter than Glass
Acrylic weighs 50% less than glass, making it easier to handle. Combine this property of acrylic with easy molding into a variety of shapes – you have a recipe for a spectacular water feature that is sparkling, lightweight, clear and exudes professionalism and serenity wherever it is placed.
Acrylic preserves its optical clarity and doesn’t get yellow with age, retaining its transparency. Resistant to UV light, this material is perfect to be used in a water feature that will be placed outdoors or will be getting significant sunlight exposure indoors.
