Rubber Stops

Use our CLEAR Round Self Adhesive Rubber Stops on your Furniture Protector for a more secure finish or if you are concerned about possible slippage. Our packs contain 20 Rubber Stops.

The Rubber Stops are approximately 11mm x 2mm in size and made of clear polyurethane coated with a powerful pressure sensitive adhesive to the back.
 
In practice we have found that using a pad approximately every 300mm to 500mm is extremely effective in stopping the furniture protector from moving about when in use.

Important Notes About Royal Acrylic 

The beauty of the Perspex® Royals  effect is due to the nature of the pigments used reflecting light in a number of directions. Some variation in natural or perceived colour will occur. This natural variation will also provide a directional effect. It is therefore important that any adjoining samples are cut in the same plane.

We recommend that you purchase a sample to check the shade before placing larger orders – just to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting.


Your order will be processed through our standard delivery service (typically 5 – 7 working days) unless you choose otherwise.

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.
 
Can I collect my order?
Our trade counters in Leeds and Newcastle are open Monday - Friday 08:00 – 16:00. Callers are welcome – you can view our materials before buying or come to collect. If you come to collect your order we will make no packing / delivery charge.  
Can I fit an acrylic splashback myself ?
Fitting is typically 4 x faster than glass splashbacks or ceramic tiles.

Because our acrylic splashbacks are so light they are very easy to lift and manoeuvre making fitting fairly easy. They can be either screwed or glued to your wall.  If you choose a clear or translucent splashback we recommend  fitting the splashback with screws because adhesive will be visible through clear and translucent acrylic.

The distance for gas hobs must be at least 200mm.

Track and Trace - TNT

Our couriers will also email you to let you know delivery details.

How does acrylic compare to other plastics in strength?
In terms of strength and impact resistance, Polycarbonate is stronger than acrylic and is virtually unbreakable followed by PET/PETG and then acrylic. To put this into perspective with glass - acrylic is around 10 times stronger than glass and polycarbonate is around 200 times stromger than glass.
How flexible is acrylic?
Acrylic is relatively flexible compared to glass - it does bend. Thin acrylic sheets will bend more easily than thicker acrylic sheets.  If you over-flex acrylic it can crack or break.  If you require your acrylic bending we can do this for you, please email us with your requirements and we will be happy to help.
 
How long does delivery take?
We send out orders once payment has been received. For Cut To Size orders this is next day; for Orders with optional extras this is around 3 business days. 
How many screw holes should I have on my splashback to fit it safely ?
We recommend that there are screws fixed approximately every 300mm.
 
How much adhesive will I need to fit a splashback ?
If you choose to glue your splashback to your wall area we recommend using Strong Stuff adhesive spread thinly and evenly across the back of the entire splashback before fixing into place. Please note that Strong Stuff dries white, not clear. A 200ml tube covers approx 2 square metres.
 
How much will my delivery be?
Our standard delivery service operates through mainland UK and is free for orders over £100. If your order cannot be delivered using our standard service we will advise you.  If you live outside of mainland UK your delivery charge will be shown before you checkout: it will be either £20 or £25 depending on the size of your order.
How scratch resistant is acrylic?
Acrylic is reasonably hard wearing but will scratch if something sharp or abrasive is put on it. 
Surface scratches can be removed from acrylic with a proprietary acrylic scratch remover.
Please see our blog post with step by step instructions of how to remove scratches from acrylic
 
How should acrylic splashbacks be cleaned ?
We are often asked about the best way to care for acrylic splashbacks.

Acrylic splashbacks can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.  Most splashbacks will be seamless — just wipe them  clean with water, there’s no longer any worry about bacteria being trapped in grout.

No chemical cleaning products should be used on acrylic as this will lead to damage to the acrylic. 

Alternatively, we are very impressed with suitable cleaner Vuplex for a shiny, cleaner, more lustrous finish with no smears or smudges. It makes colored plastics vibrant, clear plastics virtually transparent and plastic paints gleaming like new.  Vuplex is a product which delivers fast quality results with minimal effort and fuss. It also protects new plastic from scratches and grime and restores plastic which has fine scratches and in ground grime.
How strong is acrylic?
In impact resistance tests, acrylic has been found to be between 10 - 20 times stronger than glass.
How will my order be delivered?
We normally use UKMail, TNT or our own carriers.  Your order will be carefully packed to protect it in transit. Depending on your order, this may be bubble wrap, cardboard sheet /tube or wooden pallet. If you have any preferences for packing/delivery, please let us know when you order. 
I need a specific size of plastic – can you help?
Yes, we can cut plastic to your specific measurements. Just key in your measurements into our Cut to Size calculator for an immediate quote/to place your order.
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.
 
What are the advantages of acrylic over glass?
- Acrylic is very clear - it lets through 92% of the visible light as opposed to 80% to 90% for glass.
- Glass reflects more light than acrylic and the thicker the glass the more discolouration you will notice. No matter what the thickness of clear acrylic, it will always be clear.
- Scratches can be polished out of acrylic but scratched glass cannot be repaired.
- Acrylic does not shatter into sharp shards like glass. Acrylic breaks into large pieces with relatively blunt edges.
- Acrylic scratches easier than glass but surface scratching can be polished out of acrylic while glass would most likely need to be replaced.
- Acrylic is 20% more efficient than glass in reducing temperature flux which means that the outside temperature penetrates the acrylic less easily that it would penetrate glass.
What are the benefits of acrylic splashbacks?
Acrylic is a popular choice for splashbacks. The main benefits of acrylic splashbacks are:
- Versatility - acrylic can be cut to shape and size, is easily fabricated to accommodate socket holes or bends in walls
- Durablilty - acrylic is very strong and has a high impact resistance meaning it is very unlikely to break (like glass or tiles)
- Hygienic - acrylic is safe to use with food. Acrylic does not harbour bacteria and is very easy to wipe clean. The splashback can often be seamless meaning no more grout lines.
- Longevity - coloured acrylic is highly resistant to fading.
- Lightweight - meaning you can easily lift it to fit.
What is the difference between Perspex and acrylic ?
What is known as Perspex is really a brand of acrylic.

Acrylic is common thermoplastic.  It's chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA).  PMMA was invented in 1933.  Acrylic became available for commercial use under various protected trademarks such as Perspex®.  Other trademarks include are Plexiglas®,  Acrylite®,  Altuglas® and Lucite Plazcryl®,.
Why should I use acrylic instead of glass?
Acrylic is a great alternative to glass in that it is  about half the weight and 10 times the strength or glass making it a safer material. In addition, acrylic:
- Insulates better than glass
- Takes less energy to make             
- Offers higher impact resistance where glass can be more easily broken, becoming hazardous
- Provides better optical clarity
- Can be easily fabricated or shaped
- Can be polsihed to remove any scratching where glass cannot
