About Polycarbonate Replacement Acorn Globes
Originally, transparent and translucent globes for commercial or industrial street lighting were made of glass. Recently, plastic globes, commonly made from polycarbonate have come into widespread use. Polycarbonate is 75% lighter than glass, yet it's shatter proof, high impact strength helps to reduce vandalism.
Our clear polycarbonate globes meet or exceed OEM specifications. UV Stabilized and excellent light transmission add to the value of these replacement globes.
