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.

Related Accessories

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 buy acrylic offcuts?
Our acrylic is sold cut to size so we can supply what you need.  Working in this way we reduce our offcuts anda nything too small to reuse is collected for recycling.
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.
 
How can I cut acrylic sheets
You can cut acrylic at home yourself - learn how to do it here.
How can I cut Perspex
Cutting Perspex can be done at home - see our guide on how to do it here.
How do I dispose of acrylic?
For recycling purposes plastics are categorised into 7 groups. Acrylic sheet is classified as group 7. Although group 7 plastics can be recycled most councils do not collect it in their curb side collections.
The best way to dispose of unwanted acrylic sheet is to take it to your local council household waste and recycling centre.
How do I remove scratches from acrylic?
Scratches can be removed from acrylic and this is something you can do yourself. Learn how by reading our blog post with step by step instructions of how to remove scratches from acrylic
 
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 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 I clean acrylic ?
The team here at The Plastic People are often asked about how to care for acrylic.  Acrylic should not be cleaned with chemical cleaners as this will very likely lead to damage.  Cleaning acrylic should be with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.  We are impressed with a cleaning product called Vuplex which polishes acrylic to a high shine in minutes, keeping acrylic looking like brand new.   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.
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 safe for food?
Acrylic is food safe and will not leach toxic chemicals like BPA.
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
