Howdy Mybuddy,

 

Welcome to the Home Depot community and thanks for a question that is more common than you might think. Now let's get to figuring out how fix your window.

There are a few alternatives to actual glass such as;

 

Acrylic or  Plexiglass, glass is used as a substitute for glass in window panes. While more expensive and less scratch-resistant than glass, acrylic is lighter and less prone to shattering.

 

Lexan, polycarbonate windows are up to 250 times stronger than glass and 30 times stronger than acrylic. While it is much stronger thank Acrylic is also cost more.

 

As for "Platcee" glass, I'm guessing you meant "Plexiglass" which is the same as Acrylic glass. While this is a great alternative for safety, be aware that it will not look or wear that same as actual glass.

 

Happy Building,
