PLEXIGLAS® Aquariums

Unobstructed view of underwater worlds

Life under water has always been fascinating. Especially when viewed through PLEXIGLAS®: Thanks to their perfect optical purity and high light transmission, PLEXIGLAS® aquariums provide a crystal-clear, distortion-free view of submarine worlds. And there are almost no limits to aquarium construction: The excellent formability, extreme stability and decades of durability of PLEXIGLAS® make almost anything possible - right up to saltwater aquariums in dimensions similar to those of water.

The advantages at a glance

  • Perfect optical purity: We give a 30-year guarantee on the distortion-free, crystal-clear optics and high light transmission of PLEXIGLAS® aquariums.
  • Excellent formability and stability: Specific test results certify that PLEXIGLAS® has very good values in the relevant areas (rigidity, impact strength, creep behaviour, etc.).
  • Excellent suitability for saltwater aquariums: PLEXIGLAS® is extremely corrosion-resistant and does not release any toxic substances even in contact with salt solutions.

Certified production, tested quality

PLEXIGLAS® is the world's first acrylic glass and has proven itself in aquarium construction for decades. All solid sheets and blocks for the construction of PLEXIGLAS® aquariums are manufactured by a TÜV-certified manufacturer in a casting process by polymerisation. The "aquarium suitability" of the large-format PLEXIGLAS® GS blocks has been tested and confirmed according to QPA. According to current knowledge, the material does not release any relevant quantities of toxic or other undesirable substances.

What to consider during processing

The material thickness and the permissible water pressure are determined by static calculations and load tests. On request, we can advise you on thickness determination and pre-dimensioning based on your project-specific information.

The installation accessories and sealing materials must be physically and chemically compatible with PMMA1 glazing. Injectable silicone rubber intended for mechanical loads must be used as a seal.

Gigantic panes, spectacular tunnels, huge cylinders - to enable new dimensions in aquarium construction, the system provider for large aquariums Advanced Aquarium Technologies cooperates with PLEXIGLAS®.

A walk between sharks and rays

Tunnels at the bottom of aquariums are no longer a rarity. The Haus des Meeres in Vienna goes one step further: here visitors can walk through the middle of a marine aquarium in a closed PLEXIGLAS® tube.
