Material for skylite panels/shields
I'm hoping someone can give me some ideas (other than the typical (home depot acrylic panel) for placement in my skylites. I have several solar tube installations and instead of framing/installing them flush with the ceiling they were recessed somewhat and framed to look better. I will then place a clear/semi clear panel in between the frame/moulding for the solar tube and the interior dome/circular hole where the light filters through. Four are actual tubes and three are the more "typical" framed/drywalled skylites. The two larger openings are approx 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 that are incorporated into box beams in my kitchen and another is larger, approx. 2 x 3 1/2 in an art room. Can someone suggest something better looking than the old 1970's acrylic that was used to be placed in many of the florescent lighting fixtures in kitchen/ workspaces? It does not have to be clear - however I do not want any stained glass, or colored panels. I'm looking for a white material - - could be slightly opaque as well. Any ideas? They will need to bend slightly as the moulding they will be "resting" on has been installed. Thanks!
