Hail Demonstration on Acrylic and Glass Skylights

Example of how a glass skylight can withstand hail while an acrylic skylight breaks and shatters.

Here is a video simulating hail stones hitting a skylight. With the use of frozen paint ball pellets we were able to simulate hail striking an acrylic skylight and a glass skylight. The acrylic skylight shatters while the glass skylight, manufactured by Velux, stays intact.
