Clear Polycarbonate Sheets & Panels Cut To Size

You can order one of the toughest plastics available here at The Plastic People; clear polycarbonate.

As well as having a much-deserved reputation for its strength and impact resistance, polycarbonate benefits from all the transparency of glass. It is half the weight and 200x stronger. Our polycarbonate also comes with a 10 year guarantee against yellowing, ageing and hailstones.

Our clear polycarbonate panels also offer good UV and fire protection. Therefore, they are perfect when used on outdoor glazing, greenhouses and buildings that need to be safe and secure.

Polycarbonate as a material is suitable for both DIY and professional applications too, with the sheeting providing a successful solution for:

•    Replacing any glass that has been broken in the home or work
•    Replacing broken greenhouse and cold frame glass
•    Making vulnerable windows or doors secure
•    Secondary glazing

We cut our clear polycarbonate panels to the exact size you need.  Simply enter your measurements above.
