We have the knowledge, experience and technology to offer a bespoke design and fabrication service for plastic sheets to cater for almost any idea you can think of.
Please provide as much information on your size and design requirements and we will get back to you with a no obligation quote within 2 working days. You may also upload up to 5 files containing sketches or technical drawings to assist our designers with providing an accurate quote.
We offer clear Perspex® acrylic cut to size in a variety of thicknesses from 2mm - 15mm.
Unlike Cast Acrylic, Extruded Acrylic sheets are manufactured by extruding the resin over a production line which offers a uniform thickness and an excellent surface finish. A superb replacement for glass in a number of applications, Extruded Acrylic is as much as ten times more resistant to impact than glass and has excellent UV stability.
This makes it a popular choice of material for replacement greenhouse panels and secondary glazing, where it can offer 15-20 years of flawless service in all weathers. It performs well wherever a strong, lightweight and shatterproof material is required – particularly in environments where safety is a concern.
Clear acrylic is also known by the trade names of Perspex®, Lucite, Altuglas and Plexiglass.
In addition to its strength, the versatility of Extruded Acrylic is further broadened by its light weight, resistance to chemicals and a low moisture absorption rate which makes it suitable for food contact and for use in hygienic environments.
It is easily maintained and can be cleaned with a soft cloth and a little soap and warm water.
Please Note: our current machines work to a tolerance of +/- 1mm. Please enter your requirements to the nearest whole mm.
I would like to say a very BIG thank you, the level of customer service you have provided has been excellent and I look forward to doing business with you again as soon as I find my next project.

Great Product - Handle with Care Reviewed by Bryan.stark on 16 Mar 2018
As used for secondary triple glazing. Packaging damaged in transit - carefully laid in delivery van with damaged side down. Bubble wrap had protected the acrylic sheet from damage. Supplied cut exactly to size - for final trimming use a sharp saw and cut SLOWLY. Final result is really good and eliminates cold spots by big windows.
It's clear Perspex... Reviewed by Mark Naylor on 14 Mar 2018
...not much else to say; 8mm sheet is very sturdy over a longer length, I ordered a 1400x400 piece and 1000x700. Just what I needed.

Q: Is clear acrylic/perspex suitable for secondary glazing?
A: Yes, it is a perfect material for this task. 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 DIY and the extremely high light translucence means there will be no noticable reduction in light entering the room. For extra security you may want to consider using polycarbonate sheeting which is roughly 30 times stronger than acrylic.
Q. Is Perspex acrylic heat resistant?
A: No, acrylic is not heat-resistant.
Q. Is there a difference between Perspex, Plexiglas or other acrylic brands?
A: No, there is no discernible difference between these brands or any other brand that produces acrylic.
