Acrylic Perspex Sheets


The clear acrylic perspex sheets available here at The Plastic People offer near perfect optical clarity and make for a great alternative to glass.

Our crytsal - clear acrylic perspex sheets also benefit from a high gloss surface, which is exceptionally hard wearing as well as easy to form or bend.  To ensure they reach you in perfect condition, we cover our acrylic perspex sheets with a protective film surface too.

Our Clear As Glass Acrylic (also known as Perspex) sheets are available in a wide range of sizes - choose from the selection above.

We can also cut the sheets to the exact size you need - simply enter your measurements into our Cut to Size calculator.

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 wall: at least 60mm for ceramic hobs and atleast 200mm for gas hobs.
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.
 
Do you offer an advisory service?
Our team of specialists are on hand to help and advice as you need at no cost – you can reach them on 0113 249 2222 or via  service@theplasticpeople.co.uk. With over 40 years in the plastics industry and knowledge of all materials, manufacturers and brands, you can be confident in our impartial advice. However, to take advantage of the low prices on our site, you will need to place your order online.
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.
 
Can you cut / shape my plastic?

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.  If you need holes drilling or your plastic bending or shaping in any way we can also do that for you – just let us know what you need.  You can tell us as you go through our online checkout process.

If you need a particular shape cutting, we can help. Send us your drawing/requirements to artwork@theplasticpeople.co.uk.

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.
