Jerry Smith on Aquarium Windows & Underwater Tunnels

We are proud to share that we were recently featured on the International Zoo and Aquarium Review monthly podcast, hosted by Joe Lavery and Johnny May! Our founder, Jerry Smith, joined the hosts for a discussion about the industry rotation from glass into acrylic, the process of forming acrylic into shapes, and what acrylic actually is!

With 30 years of experience in the field, Jerry brings valuable insight and expertise as he looks back on the history of glass and acrylic windows in zoos, aquariums, theme parks, and more. In this episode, we’ll discuss the evolution from the invention of acrylic, to Walt Disney’s fish tank, to maintaining some of the world’s largest installations.
