Transparent Lexan penthouse elevator
Florida Plastics Projects

A new oceanfront Ritz Carlton penthouse has this 2 story tube elevator. My first impression was "James Bond" or maybe "beam me up Scotty". Flat polycarbonate sheets were cold flowed or just forced into a metal frame.

Only 1/4" thick plastic had some scratches from construction workers, and I did my best with the Lexan equivalent material, but it is not as easy to buff as acrylic sheet. Some panels may just need to be replaced.
This new opulent hotel, is directly on the Fort Lauderdale beach strip.
