Standout characteristics of our acrylic sheets

Our clear acrylic sheets offer near perfect optical clarity and make for great alternatives to glass. That's because acrylic is around 10 x stronger, yet much lighter to handle. Acrylic is also clearer than glass and actually transmits more light.

A clear acrylic sheet from The Plastic People also benefits from a high gloss surface, and is exceptionally hard-wearing and easy to form or bend – as well as being physically easier to lift, hang, carry or transport.

Should acrylic be dropped, or impacted in any way – it’s much less likely to break. If it does break, it won’t shatter in the same way as glass. It won’t break into tiny sharp shards but into a couple of large, easy to pick up pieces, which makes it ideal for situations where safety is paramount.

Acrylic is great for outdoor use – as it has excellent UV resistance and general weathering properties.

So, as well as arguably being more straightforward to install – a clear acrylic sheet is much more durable and suitable for outdoor use than a standard glass panel.
Policril, Acryglass XT, Oroglass, Altuglas, Plexiglas and Perspex are all brands of acrylic you may have heard of. We find that Perspex is the better product & we only supply Perspex acrylic sheets. 

Acrylic sheet applications

Clear acrylic sheets can be used for a variety of different things. The main applications typically include:

However, sheets of acrylic can also be used for retail displays and signage for shops, for example.

How to order your Perspex sheets

Ordering clear acrylic sheets from The Plastic People is quick and easy.

Simply select the size of acrylic sheet you would like to order and add it to your basket.

However, if you want to make a cut to size order – you’ll need to enter your bespoke measurements in regards to thickness, length and width.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

Are Acrylic and Perspex the same ?
Perspex is a brand name for acrylic (in the same way that hoover is a brand name for a vaccum cleaner).  There are other brands of acrylic too – such as Plexiglass.
Can acrylic be used behind a hob ?

Acrylic can be used for kitchen splashbacks but the following distances should be kept between the outer edge of your hob and the acrylic: at least 60mm for ceramic hobs and at least 200mm for gas hobs. Acrylic is not suitable for use behind an Aga or similar range cooker.
See our splashback pages for further details.

Can acrylic be used in bathrooms ?
Acrylic can be used for bathroom splashbacks, shower splashbacks and bath panels. 

Acrylic can be delivered at a maximum size of 3m x 2m meaning it is possible to cover a large area without the need for any seams (this means no more grouting !). 

Because acrylic is so light, lfting acrylic and fixing it to walls is a fairly straightforward DIY task.  See our acrylic splashbacks for further details.
How can I clean acrylic ?
We suggest simply use warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.   Any chemical cleaner should be avoided as it is likely to damage the acrylic.  If you would like to use a cleaning product we suggest our specialist acrylic cleaner and polish Vuplex.
How can I cut acrylic sheets
You can cut acrylic at home yourself - learn how to do it here.

How should I clean acrylic ?
The team here at The Plastic People are often asked about how to care for acrylic.  Acrylic should not be cleaned with chemical cleaners as this will very likely lead to damage.  Cleaning acrylic should be with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.  We are impressed with a cleaning product called Vuplex which polishes acrylic to a high shine in minutes, keeping acrylic looking like brand new.   It also protects new plastic from scratches and grime and restores plastic which has fine scratches and in ground grime. 
Is acrylic better than glass ?
Acrylic is 17 x stronger than glass and about half the weight of glass.

This means it is physically easier to lift, hang, carry or transport around and safer at the same time too.  Should acrylic be dropped, it is much less likely to break too.  If it does break, it will not shatter in the same way as glass.  It would not break into tiny sharp shards but into a couple of large, easy to pick up pieces.  This makes it ideal for situations where safety is paramount.

Acrylic is also clearer than glass and actually transmits more light than glass.  


Is acrylic heat resistant ?

Acrylic is heat resistant up to 70 degrees.


Is acrylic suitable for outdoor use ?

Yes, acrylic can be used outside.

Is clear acrylic suitable for secondary glazing ?
Yes, acrylic is a good choice for secondary glazing. 

The benefits of secondary glazing include increased thermal and sound insulation as well as extra security. Acrylic’s light weight and flexibility make it very easy to install yourself at home and the extremely high light translucence means there will be no noticable reduction in light entering the room.

For extra security consider using polycarbonate sheeting which is roughly 30 times stronger than acrylic and is also ideal for secondary glazing.
