Acrylic Bin With Backplate Fails

Acrylic Bin with Flatback Backplate Fail Main

Acrylic Bin with Flatback Backplate FailsThe beauty of acrylic is that it is clear. The limitation is that it is brittle and can fail, particularly when thin, and if designed with a hole that focuses the load and stress on the weakest point. No need to avoid clear acrylic totally. Just employ a design like this in low-load, low-abuse uses, rather than child-appealing cashwrap jobs like this. CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate angle. I invite comments from Acrylic aficionados to further defend their material of choice, though I think I have offered an even-handed analysis.
