Polycarbonate sheet prices are a little higher than acrylic materials, or the "hybrids", but the durability is the uttermost in clear plastic flat goods. Still most of the bagel bin size units, like below are made of acrylic. I think the visual properties of acrylic are very slightly better. When dealing with food, all aspects of the closeup presentation is very critical. The medium size "bagel bins" in production here are not available in a molded form yet. lnjection molding of precision parts like the supermarket candy bins with a manual shoot metering system, are much less expensive than the hand made ones, but custom products cost.

Daily use, commercial products have to be cleaned and moved, so durability is a big factor. The lexan bins, glue and bend with the same basic processes, but definitely are more difficult to make.
