What's the difference between Acrylic and perspex sheet?
Acrylic sheets are often known as Perspex sheet or Plexiglass sheet, these are all brand names of acrylic sheet. Some brands offer unique colours or sparkly effects but in essence all acrylic sheet is made from PMMA resin with almost identical qualities.
What can acrylic sheet be used for?
Light Weight, High Impact Acrylic (Perspex®)
We are suppliers and fabricators of acrylic sheets (also known as Perspex® or Plexiglass) cut to order. These plastic acrylic 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 Perspex sheets which have that authentic green tint when looking at the edge of the sheet, keeping the look of real glass but preserving all the benefits of plastic.
We are experienced suppliers of acrylic cast 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 Privacy Glazing
We have opal, frosted and translucent acrylic sheets which, again, are brilliant for displays and signs, however, it can also be used as light fitting diffusers, and privacy 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 walls coverings.
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. We also have a range of 100% recycled acrylic and our 5mm acrylic comes with an optional scratch resistant surface, great for areas which will require more frequent cleaning. 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) 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. Check out this guide for more pros and cons of acrylic sheet.
