The product is made by Apogee Enterprises (TruVue) and is available

The acrylic sheet is .118 inches thick; size is 41 x 71 inches.
Unlike conventional acrylic, this coated sheet does not hold a
static charge (our informal tests showed it to be about equivalent
to glass in this respect). It costs about half as much as Mirogard.
