How to Take Care of your Acrylic Lectern

As with all fine furnishings, acrylic lecterns require attention and care to keep them looking spectacular. Improper cleaning and rough handling will adversely affect the appearance of your acrylic lectern. Please follow the recommendations below to provide the best care for your lectern.

Improper Care:
  • You must be careful when you clean an acrylic lectern. Do not use cleaning products containing ammonia or alcohol on the acrylic – Windex, 409 and other glass cleaners contain ammonia meant for cleaning glass finishes – Do not use these types of cleaners. Ammonia or alcohol-based products can scratch or leave a film and can cause cracking to the acrylic surface. They are not intended for acrylic materials
  • Do not use a dry cloth, a paper towel, your hands or textured material when rubbing dirt or dust off the surface. Paper towels contain wood fibers that can make hairline scratches on the exterior when used for cleaning or drying. This type of cleaning method will cause scratching and marring of the shiny, smooth acrylic surface.
  • Do not rub or wipe the surface of the acrylic in a harsh or abrasive manner with any method of cleaning.

Proper Care and Cleaning:
  • Use a soft, wet sponge and lightly wipe away loose dirt or dust.
  • For more stubborn stains or fingerprints, remove them using a mild dish detergent and warm water on a soft, wet sponge.
  • For more stubborn stains or fingerprints, remove them using a mild dish detergent and warm water on a soft, wet sponge.
  • Dry the acrylic with a clean, damp chamois or a soft, lint-free cloth. A cloth diaper or Micro Fiber Cloth works well.
  • For a professional cleaning, use an anti-static acrylic cleaner or plastic polish ( Brillianize® ) that cleans without scratching. These can be purchased at a local hardware or home improvement stores and makes the acrylic surfaces sparkle, resistant to fingerprints and repels dust and lint. As always, use a soft, lint-free cloth when applying and drying. ,
    Do not use paper towels!

Below is a demonstration video from Tubro showing how to use Brillianize to clean an acrylic display cube.

  • Proper use will avoid any activity or product that might cause the acrylic to become scratched.
  • Do not drop or drag lecterns or use metal objects (such as keys), sharp objects (such as letter openers), or rub it with harsh, textured cleaning cloths.
  • If fine scratches do occur on the lectern itself and you prefer to attempt to treat them, the scratches may be removable by using specialized, mild polishes designed for this purpose.
  • Scratch Removal: Remove hairline scratches with the Novus® Plastic Polishing System or for heavier scratches that you can feel with your fingernail may require using a Novus Buffing Kit.

LaLa Spreading Cheer at the America's Cup 2013

Images by Mike Kepka via SFGate
At this year’s America’s Cup racing season, LaLa Hill-Courtney took the role of the “welcoming ambassador” and cheerleader, greeting patrons of the event and informing fans of the America’s Cup Park’s attractions at Piers 27/29.

Sitting tall and pretty atop a 6-foor chair dressed in a red America’s Cup outfit accentuated with a pair of shiny golden sneakers, LaLa volunteers her time making sure all in attendance receive a great experience and get to see the best of the park.

As Lala sits on top of her high chair that she has wittily named “LaLa Perch”, she communicates to the crowd using a S602M Mity-Meg Plus Megaphone from AmpliVox. The megaphone helps LaLa to amplify her voice as she notifies guests of the Parks other features such as the Kids Zone, visiting Food Trucks, the “Flying on Water Experience”, and occasionally sings to crowd as she welcomes them to the park.

LaLa works the megaphone all day long and tries to make eye contact with the few who pass by. She talks about the weather and the food, and reminds people to shop at the Louis Vuitton gift shop.

"What I hope it does is make our visitors realize that San Francisco is a come-back-to place," LaLa said. "I do it because I love San Francisco and I really love America's Cup and I'm so excited that it's here in San Francisco."

S602M - Mity-Meg Plus Megaphone

Easy to use with detachable corded mic and shoulder strap for all day use. Effective range can reach up to 1760 yards / one mile.
