What are Sky-Scapes®?

Sky-Scapes® are durable, lightweight decorative fluorescent light diffusers that replace existing light panels. Sky-Scapes® diffusers measure 23 ¾˝ x 47 ¾˝ and are .045 mils in thickness. Our diffusers drop into a standard 2’ x 4’ fluorescent light frame. If your light fixture is smaller, Sky-Scapes® diffusers can easily be cut with a utility knife to fit your existing light frame.

For a less costly alternative to the Durastrong® panels, Repacorp offers Clear Cell™. Clear Cell™ is a printed film that lies on top of the current fluorescent light diffuser. All Sky-Scapes designs can be printed on either Clear Cell™ or Durstrong®.

Our Durastrong® panels and Clear Cell™ films are rolled to reduce shipping costs. Durastrong® plastic has a bit of memory, so when you receive your Sky-Scapes® diffusers, promptly remove them from the box and lay flat until installation. If you store them in the box too long and they are curled, lay them flat to rest. Your panels will flatten out, and if you don’t have time to wait, our spring clips will hold them flat in the light fixture’s frame. Our Durastrong® diffusers have clear protective sheeting on the back to keep the panel clean before installation. Peel off the clear plastic sheet before you install your diffusers. Regular cleaning with a damp cloth will keep your new Durastrong® panels clean and bright. Dust the Clear Cell™ films with a soft dry cloth.

Repacorp’s Durastrong® plastic has an UL-94V-2 rating, and a flame spread of 0-5! We have our Durastrong® plastic specially formulated with just enough white pigment for the best luminosity without viewing the light bulbs. UV inhibitors are added to our plastic to help prevent yellowing and to keep colors bright and crisp. And best of all, our Durastrong® plastic is guaranteed not to break during shipping—even with rough handling! 

Our Product Lines

Repacorp has Durastrong® plastic specifically manufactured for our Sky-Scapes® fluorescent light diffusers. Durastong has a 10-15 year lifespan, and a UL-94V-2 rating. Durastrong® plastic is .045 mils thick and formulated with just enough white pigment so that you don’t view the fluorescent light bulbs. Plus, we added UV inhibitors to Durastrong® to help prevent the material from yellowing. Our Durastrong® panels are strong and safe. In fact, a .060 mil (1/16”) thick sheet of Durastrong® plastic even stopped a bullet in a test by the manufacturer!  “We shot the sheet with a .22 pistol from about 25 feet and pieces of the bullets were bouncing back at our feet. None went through the sheet.”

Durastrong
® plastic is used in manufacturing riot shields, fire fighter helmet lenses and F-16 canopies are made from ½” thick sheets and acrylic to keep birds from penetrating. The Heat Deflection Temperature of Durastrong® plastic (HDT) under a load of 264 psi (1.8 MPa) is 271˚F (133˚C). With a load of 66 psi (0.45 MPa) the HDT is 282˚F (139˚C). The test method for measuring the HDT is ASTM D648.

Our plastic manufacturer tested the Sky-Scapes
® sheet for flame spread and smoke developed. The manufacturer’s flame spread test results of 0-5 prove Durastrong® plastic is safer than existing acrylic panels that come with fluorescent lighting. When asked by fire marshals for information about our Durastrong® plastic, present these fire ratings.

3. Sky-Scapes® Clips

Our Sky-Scapes® Durastrong® panels and Clear Cell™ films can be rolled to reduce shipping costs. Durastrong® plastic has a bit of memory, so when you receive your Sky-Scapes® diffusers, promptly remove them from the box and lay flat until installation. If you store them in the box too long and they are curled, lay them flat to rest. Your panels will flatten out. If you don’t have time to wait, our Sky-Scapes® clips will hold them flat in the light fixture’s frame.

You do not need these clips to secure the Durastrong® panels. They are optional.

One bag of 10 clips is $0.96

To prevent clips form rattling around in the box and scraping the panel design, clips are taped to the inside of the box.  Please check inside of the box before disposing of packaging.
