How to seal two acrylic sheets together?
« on: September 23, 2017, 12:50:38 AM »

Hi all,

I have a dormer-style window - two panes, one at an angle above the other  Inside I'll be using 10mm acrylic, and the edges will be cut at 90 degrees - they won't be mitered.

What can I use to get an airtight seal at the point the two sheets meet?

I actually have the same question for another window, where I have two 10mm / 3/8"  acrylic sheets but they are in line.

I have to use two sheets because the window is too large, and I want to make the lower sheet a manageable size for removal.

So I plan to mount the top sheet permanently, then fit the removable lower sheet under it. Would a magnetic strip each attached to the adjoining parts of each face give an airtight fit?

The only solution we have come up with that works is to add a 2x4 in the middle and use the L Frame to make the seal for each panel.

OK thanks Randy, that's going to look pretty ugly though. Might have to get them mitered and use magnetic tape on the faces.

Let us know how it works if you do that method..this has been a problem we have been trying to solve for years with mixed and failing results.
