Topsheet material question
what are the different materials u can use for the top of boxes, and what are the pros and cons of each?
hdpe is the thing to have

lexan, its really strong and slides really good(250 times stronger than glass)
how about acryllic? how does that work? it's a little cheaper than lexan.
And what about LDPE (Low density polyethylene). It's barely any cheaper than HDPE, but it's still a few bucks that could go towards somthing else, how does it slide?

acrylic will shatter when you hit it
hdpe and lexan are pretty expensive i think. but they are the ideal things to use
the best but exspensive
pvc- cheap but breaks easy
ive tried out some of the outdoor grade pvc (i dont know if thats what it is called) and its held up pretty well. Def a little better than jsut the standard white pvc. i got this stuff at homedepot its the gray kind and it seems to be holding up better. So if u dont wnat to spend that kind of money on hdpe or lexan i would check out that kind of pvc
composite decking wood. it's like a plasticy type wood you can get at any menards or home depot or lowes. it slides really nice, i have it on my box.
