Has anyone converted their eisenglass to polycarbonate boat windows?

    Polycarbonate = lexan not a flexible product.

    years ago i had a convertable car that had solid glass in the "Fabric" roof, I had thought about the same question visibility would improve, but storage becomes an issue.

    When I say lexan is not flexible meaning that is has a really good impact resistance so it does flex to absorb impact. But it scratch easily and hard to polish. So has Britinusa  mentioned storage does become an issue and also weight is another factor .

    The product everyone calls eisenglass is nothing more than plain clear pvc with has poor UV resistance and about zero resistance to environmentals (acid rain, etc). 

    If you want a product that is a step up and can even be ordered tinted for UV protection of the covered area, Strataglass is the stuff.  I used it on my new enclosure a few years ago and it is worlds better than 'eisenglass'.  You can still roll it, although it is stiffer than eisenglass.
