plexiglass in a shower

Not really, it yellows, crazes, scratches to eazy.
How would you seal the inside corners?
Why not just buy a real surround, sure would look better.

If you insist on doing it anyway it would be best to use Lexan instead, It would end up costing more then a real enclosure.

plexiglass in a shower

I am wondering about installing plexiglass as wall material for my bath tub walls. I understand that exposure to ultra light may yield long term yellowing. My tub Area is not in direct sun light, Has anyone used plexiglass as a tub wall surrounding.. Does it meet code for ontario Canada.
