A popular choice of material for areas that require high levels of hygiene, sheet acrylic boasts a high resistance to chemicals and is simple to maintain. Acrylic’s resistance to chemicals and easy upkeep has made it a very popular choice for kitchen worktops and surfaces in restaurants, pubs and homes.
Since its inception, acrylic has always been a popular alternative to glass as it can have the same transparent clarity but is also lighter and more durable. In addition to this, acrylic (also known as Perspex) is available in a large number of vivid colours, which means it can be simply incorporated into any area, in any style. Other key features include:
Please be aware that this extremely vibrant pink material needs to be fixed to a blemish-free wall, ideally with a white or light background. Dark blemishes or tape can sometimes show witness marks though the front face of the material.Please Note: Acrylic sheets should not be used at the rear of gas/electric hobs without protection or within close proximity to a high heat source.
Colour of sheets may differ slightly due to variances in your computer display.
Coloured acrylic sheet is a lightweight and strong material with a superb aesthetic which is suitable for a variety of uses including:

Q. Is acrylic sheeting suitable for use as a splashback behind a hob or oven?
A: No. Temperatures of over 60°C will affect acrylic, so it is not suitable for use in close proximity to heatsources. A popular solution is to protect the acrylic splashback directly behind the heat source with a sheet of toughened glass.
