Acrylic (Perspex)

Where Can Acrylic Be Used?

Acrylic sheeting can be used for many different purposes.
In bathrooms for instance, this type of plastic is used as shower splashbacks – whilst your bath is usually made from an acrylic panel.

Acrylic can also be used behind a kitchen hob provided there is an appropriate distance between the outer edge of the hob and the acrylic itself (60mm for ceramic hobs and 200mm for gas hobs). Acrylic is also heat resistant up to 70 degrees.
You can read our splashbacks page for more guidance on this.  
Our coloured acrylic is available in 18 different colours, so if you’re designing a child’s playroom, this is a great decorative option.

Clear acrylic is also often a good choice for secondary glazing – offering a way to increase sound and thermal insulation.
Acrylic uses also extend beyond the interior of your home – as it is very suitable for outdoor use. Whether that’s reflective acrylic for your garden, or even clear acrylic for shed windows – you can rest assured that your dealing with a highly durable material that can cope with the elements.

However you choose to utilise your purchase, the lightweight and flexible nature of acrylic makes it easy to install anywhere around your home.
 

How Do I Keep My Acrylic Looking Clean?

Keeping acrylic clean is a simple task.

We suggest using warm soapy water with a soft cotton cloth to wipe the surface. You should avoid using chemical cleaners and other types of cloth, as they are likely to damage the acrylic.
However, you can still use some specialist acrylic cleaners – we recommend our VuPlex polish or even our Xerapol acrylic scratch remover.

VuPlex works especially well for keeping acrylic sheets looking brand new. It polishes the surface of the plastic to a very high standard and also protects from grime and scratches.
See the ‘How To’ tab on each individual product section for specific guidance on how to best polish and clean acrylic.
 

How Long Does Delivery Take?

We offer next day delivery for most acrylic orders and the price of this varies depending on the size of your order.

Otherwise, orders get sent out as soon as possible. This is usually within 3 days for cut to size orders, whilst you can expect orders with optional extras or shapes to arrive within 5 days.
The estimated delivery date is always displayed in your shopping basket before you make your order.

However, we will always advise you if we think that it will be difficult to deliver your order safely using our standard service. This is only usually the case for especially large orders that need to be delivered on a pallet.
