Default side panel window mod - flimsy acrylic sheets?

interested in adding a window to my side panel.

currently looking for clear sheets to buy - a local art shop has some, there's also home hardware, etc.

i went to the local art shop and they had acrylic sheets (plexiglass), and i noticed that it is rather quite flimsy. the thinner sheets bend like rubber (a little tougher than rubber), but is nothing close to what a computer case side panel window is like.

is this just because of the thickness of the sheet? or are there different types of sheets with different "toughness"?

i am looking to mimic normal case side panel windows, and don't think those flimsy sheets will do the job.

what acrylic sheets should i be looking for?

thanks very much in advance!
