Common, silica-based glass is notorious as a poor insulator, allowing unwanted heat or cold to easily be transported through conduction and radiation. Silica glass is also heavy and subject to shattering upon impact, which can make it a poor choice for pharmacy appliance doors that are opened and closed frequently.
Poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) organic glass, also known as acrylic glass or plexiglass, is a strong, tough material that provides superior insulation at about half the weight of common glass. It is impact-resistant with excellent transparency.
B Medical Systems offers a line of pharmacy refrigerators with windowed doors constructed of four-layer PMMA organic glass. Their clear-door options provide the highest insulation combined with reduced weight and ideal clarity. Lighter doors mean easier door-closing effort and minimal wear and tear on hinges, offering better refrigerator longevity.
