Acrylic Greenhouse Glazing - Standard Sizes

Choose clear Perspex greenhouse panels here at The Plastic People to replace your damaged or broken greenhouse glass panels.

The panels that we have available are lighter than glass and much stronger.

They come in both cut-to-size and standard sizes, to suit all requirements.

Our Acrylic Perspex Replacement Greenhouse Glass is:
 

  • Safer than glass - if it does break, it will not shatter
  • Lighter than glass - 50% lighter than glass
  • Stronger than glass - 10X the impact resistance of glass
  • Cheaper than glass
  • Has great UV and weather resistance
 

Rest assured that as well as our Perspex sheets for greenhouses being stronger than glass, they are also lighter and much cheaper and so are a superb choice to replace broken or existing glass panels.

When selecting your replacement acrylic greenhouse windows we recommend a minimum gauge of 3mm for adequate rigidity.  This is because some customers have told us 2mm thick panels can be 'too bendy' particularly on larger panel sizes.

Our extruded acrylic, from Perspex, has excellent UV stability and is durable even in the worst UK weather conditions.

How To Order

 

  • Simply enter the measurements of your panels into our Cut To Size Quote Calculator above
  • If you'd like to send us a drawing of your requirements with your order you can upload it using our Quote Calculator above.  It will arrive with our team once your order has been completed.

That's it. If we have any questions about your order we will be in touch.

How do I fit replacement greenhouse windows?

If your replacement panels are the same size and thickness as your original panels you should be able to fit them in exactly the same way. On wooden frames you can even drill and screw acrylic on.

How to Drill Acrylic

If you prefer, we can drill any holes for you, just let us know how many you'd like (we generally recommend a hole every 300mm) by completing the optional extras section when you place your order.

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.

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 suitable for outdoor use ?

Yes, acrylic can be used outside.

What effect does UV have on polycarbonate ?
Solar radiation has a particularly harmful effect upon materials that are not protected.  Our multiwall polycarbonate comes with a UV protected surface, ensuring long-term optical quality even under UV exposure.
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®,.
