What can acrylic boards be used for?
Clear acrylic boards are great for use in displays and can be used for exhibitions, events or for commercial spaces to convey important messages to staff or visitors. Acrylic boards can be cut to any size to suit the environment and can be cut with rounded corners for a safer application in busy areas such as hallways, cafeterias and reception areas. Acrylic can be printed onto easily as well, so if you have a particular design or pattern you want to showcase, we can print it directly onto the acrylic board – UV inks work incredibly well on acrylic and maintain their bright colour for years to come.
Acrylic is easily wiped down and can be maintained with minimal effort, so it’s a great option for areas that can get dirty or messy quickly. For this reason, acrylic boards are popular in nurseries or children’s play areas and schools, where kids can draw on the board without the worry of removing it afterwards – it can simply be wiped off with a soft cloth. Similarly, acrylic boards are great for use as splashbacks or in food preparation areas where hygiene is of the utmost importance. In any area where glass would ordinarily be used as an easy to clean material, acrylic boards can take its place.
Acrylic boards can be purchased in numerous colours and shades, so they offer a wide range of possible options to suit your needs. Perhaps you’re looking for a simple white board to make messages and communications stand out, or maybe you’re in need of a bold and vivid colour plastic that stands out and works in tandem with your company colour scheme. Whatever the application, we have a great selection to choose from.
What benefits does acrylic have?
Despite looking like glass, acrylic has up to 10 times the impact resistant and can be used as a safer, more durable alternative in virtually all applications where glass is typically used. Acrylic board is more insulating than many other materials, including glass, as well. The most common reason for using acrylic board in place of glass or other plastics is that it’s far more durable and long lasting, so it’s a great cost-effective investment.
In addition to its strength, it’s also a versatile material to work with in terms of cutting, engraving and printing possibilities. Acrylic boards are ideal for use in interior and exterior applications, from secondary glazing, signage and mirrors to bathrooms, kitchens and point of sale displays – the possibilities are virtually endless.
