Light Weight, High Impact Acrylic (Perspex® Alternative)
We are suppliers of polycarbonate and acrylic (also known as Perspex®) sheets cut to order. These plastic sheets are lighter than glass, have better impact resistance and are safe to use around children and animals. Our range includes mirror effect acrylic sheets which are perfect for use in gyms, fitness centres and dance studios. They can also be used in the garden as a design feature, enhancing both the light and sense of space.
Table Tops And Table Top Protectors
You can buy acrylic sheet (E.g. Perspex®) which can be used as a replacement glass table top where safety is a concern. Clear plastic sheets, cut to size can be used as a table top protector. Now an heirloom piece of furniture with engraving or marquetry can have a new lease of life under the protection of a bespoke cut and polished plastic shield. Alongside our clear acrylic sheeting, we also have glass effect plastic sheets which have that authentic green tint when looking at the edge of the plastic, keeping the look of real glass but preserving all the benefits of plastic.
We are experienced distributors of acrylic (also sold as Perspex® and Plexiglass) cut to size, and extruded acrylic which is perfect for signs and displays for home and retail. Being unaffected by UV, as well as being weatherproof, our cut acrylic sheets are perfect for illuminated signage and outdoor displays, as well as for cabinets and shelves. Because cast acrylics have a low softening temperature they can be easily moulded. A keen DIYer can, using basic tools, easily create new forms from their plastic sheeting. Perfect for a huge variety of projects.
Light Fittings and Discreet Secondary Glazing
We have pearl and translucent finish acrylic sheet which, again, is brilliant for displays and signs, however, it can also be used for fluorescent light fitting diffusers, and secondary glazing where you want as much light as possible, while avoiding the eyes of passers-by.
Shed And Playhouse Windows
Cut acrylic sheet has many fun applications too. A play house fitted with acrylic glass becomes a warm, bug free environment for children to play in without the associated dangers of window glass. Putting plastic sheet glazing into a Wendy house means that it can also be used to store toys and play equipment over winter, instead of taking up space in a shed or garage.
Wipe-Boards, Splashbacks, Signs and Displays
Cut My Plastic also stocks a range of opaque acrylic sheet in a range of colours, including black or white. These are perfect for use as wipe-boards, splashbacks, signs, displays and cabinets, table tops and wet room tanking.
Your Plastic, Cut To Order
When we cut plastic to order our saw-cut sheets have a tolerance of +/- 3mm. Once the plastic has been cut we can also bevel the edges, polish them to a glass-like finish and round off corners. Simply place your order, advising us of all your bespoke requirements. We'll take care of the rest.
Features of Acrylic Sheet
There are many benefits of using an acrylic sheet (Perspex sheet equivalent) and it makes a great replacement for glass in various applications. The primary reason why acrylic is used is for its durability and toughness – it has up to ten times the impact resistance of glass and is also shatterproof, making it a safer alternative. Acrylic sheet (Plexiglas equivalent) is also easy to fabricate and machine, and bonds effectively with adhesives and solvents. It can be cut to any shape, size or thickness, making it a really versatile and flexible material that’s ideal for so many uses.
Acrylic has great weathering properties, so it can be used both in and outdoors without any worry about the quality of the material deteriorating or showing signs of damage. This material is also transparent and offers brilliant optical clarity, so it can be used as an alternative to glass for applications such as secondary glazing. However, it’s half the weight of glass so it’s not only safer but also easier to install.
Benefits and Applications of Acrylic Sheet
Acrylic is commonly used for signage as it can be used effectively for outdoor use as well as indoor applications and is durable enough to withstand the elements. This includes point of sale displays and exhibition stands and overhead signs. Because of its optical clarity and shatterproof properties, acrylic sheet (branded as Plexiglas sheet or Perspex sheet) can make a great option for windows, secondary glazing and skylights. You can also see our coloured acrylic sheet options.
Commercial spaces can benefit from acrylic in numerous ways, from shelving and retail fixtures to wall coverings, branding and totem signs for offices, hotels or museums. The versatility of acrylic along with its excellent aesthetic qualities makes it an ideal material to work with – it can be cut easily with regular household tools and will last decades without showing signs of wear and tear, both in the home and for commercial use.
Installing Acrylic Sheeting
When placing your order, you can choose a variety of thicknesses from 2mm through to 30mm, depending on the plastic, application and the rigidity you require. You can also request holes and cutouts to be pre-cut for you by our skilled machinists to make installation even easier. Acrylic sheets (Perspex equivalent) can be installed either by drilling it to the wall or by using an appropriate adhesive to glue it into place, making installation incredibly easy and quick, even for a DIY amateur. Acrylic sheets are lightweight unlike glass or other materials, so it can be put into place with ease. This is particularly useful when installing larger sheets, such as wall splashbacks.
