Madstad Screens are tough!
« on: September 15, 2019, 10:37:50 AM »
Managed to drop my bike while manoeuvring in the log cabin I use as a workshop. The bike went down with the screen up against the wall of the cabin. Two great groves in the wooden wall -the screen unmarked very impressed with this plexiglass.

I doubt that it's Plexiglas because it shatters easily.

In that case I stand corrected: acrylic is a generic name, Plexiglas is a brand name. :125:

Then it certainly is good enough for a motorbike screen. :300:

mine once got whacked by the barrier on the severn bridge toll when the operator lowered it too soon, the screen survived without even a scratch   :169:
