Acrylic Viewing Windows

Types of Acrylic Viewing Windows for Custom Aquariums

International Concept Management constructs, designs, and engineers large scale aquariums, with environmental safety in mind. Learn about the types of acrylic viewing windows that have been used in some of our aquarium designs.

Acrylic Technology

Acrylic is currently one of the clearest and strongest materials used to design an exhibit or aquarium. Because of the complex technical knowledge needed to engineer a sustainable habitat and durable structure it is required to hire an experienced firm.

Custom acrylic that is used in aquariums or zoo’s for example is subjected to pressure from thousands or even millions of gallons of water, high winds, dust, and a variety of environmental temperatures. Our acrylic engineers and architects make sure to design each structure so that it can handle long-term pressure with the safety of the environment and animals in mind.

At the end of the day, hiring a company to design and manufacture safe, commercial exhibits and aquariums, especially those that involve large amounts of water or wildlife, requires a highly competent, experienced team.

Submerged Windows

To begin the process, the correct preparation of viewing panels is an essential prerequisite of large-scale glazing. This can often be quite challenging for designers and developers.

You can trust ICM with the entire process, including structural engineering calculations, giving you a single source solution with the benefits of experience in the acrylic viewing windows. There is no size that we cannot make or fabricate as we have made some of the biggest custom acrylic glass aquariums in the world!

Our large scale glass panels are individually made to order and can be configured to any duties encountered. We take pride and ensure that our windows are safe to use from your local aquarium to an oceanarium.

Acrylic Tunnel Aquariums

A acrylic tunnel for both dry and wet applications can be formed and fabricated in all kinds of material gauges and dimensions to suit the most daring and ambitious concepts. You can bet that people will be talking about your aquarium for years to come. The applications for this type of viewing panel is limited only by your imagination.


The advantage of an underwater tunnel is it allows the audience to experience the life of underwater creatures in a more first-person, natural way! Not just a top view looking down. Visitors can view observe some of the most interesting animals on earth while safely behind a nearly invisible barrier of clear acrylic. 

Cylinder Aquarium

Cylindrical displays are often the first choice of a designer. This centerpiece maximizes and delivers great value for money in providing 360-degree viewing opportunities from one investment. We fabricate and build our own cylinders to any specifications that you require for your cylinder aquarium.

The concept of the cylinder-shaped aquarium was first made popular by the AquaDom aquarium ICM helped design in partnership with Reynold’s Polymer Technology to build in Berlin, Germany. This style of aquarium has proven to capture the attention of visitors who wish to see the exposed nature at multiple angles.

Acrylic Hemisphere Windows

Acrylic hemispheres are strong structures so they are suited for unusual glazed views into deep aquarium displays. The use of formed acrylic panels often answers both structural and aesthetic demands. They tend to offer a far more cost-effective answer the regular panels. They are just as fun for the kids as they are for adults and will add an extra flair to your aquarium.

We offer a wide range of acrylic windows and we can fabricate and install any design you wish as we have the experience to take on any task you wish to get done.
