What Are the Benefits of an Acrylic Sheet?

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.

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.

We supply from a selection of acrylic brands (Policril, Acryglass XT, Oroglass, Altuglas, Plexiglas and Perspex) which are all of a comparable quality, and we use them all in our business.

Cleaning Clear Acrylic Sheets

We're often asked how to best clean acrylic sheets.

The best option is to use a soft cotton cloth to clean the acrylic with warm soapy water. Alternatively, we're very impressed with the results you can get from Vuplex - an acrylic cleaner which polishes to a high shine in minutes, keeping clear acrylic looking brand new.

It also protects new plastic from scratches and grime and restores plastic which has fine scratches and in ground grime that has developed over time. You can add it to your order for our promotional price of £6.98.

However, it’s important to bear in mind that acrylic should not be cleaned with chemical cleaners as this will very likely lead to damage.

Acrylic Sheeting Delivery Options

At The Plastic People, we pride ourselves on making sure your order reaches you in top condition as you’d expect.

We carefully cover acrylic sheets before they go in transit – adding extra protection around more vulnerable corners and edges. We also add a protective film on both sides which you can peel off when you unwrap your order.

Unless stated otherwise, all orders are delivered using our standard delivery service.

However, you can also choose next day delivery if you want your order to arrive promptly – or even named day delivery if you have a specific day in mind.

If you have any instructions you’d like us to adhere to with regards to delivering your order, you can let us know in the ‘Order Delivery Notes’ box as you proceed through the checkout.

Provided you’re happy with your plastic and chosen method of delivery, then feel free to place your order for your chosen size of acrylic sheeting with us today.

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 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. For this reason we sell Vuplex at a  promotional price of £5.99.
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.
