Well first since you have little ( no) uv any plastic/glass is fine.

Double wall polycarbonate is the less breakable option.
Cell cast acrylic is tied w glass for the clearest as to light transmission.

Regular acrylic warps due to moisture absorption.
Lexan has a mixed track record for warping though seems minimal. The double walled don't have this issue apparently.
May be a thickness thing.

Double walled may lose about 20%
Glass/sheet plastics about 10-15% rough estimates

Framing and aesthetics will prob the difficult part
