Clear Acrylic Details

With excellent optical clarity, our clear acrylic sheets have a wide range of uses for home, commercial and DIY projects. Clear Perspex® sheets are a hard-wearing material that is optically transparent and can be used for a variety of applications.

Up to 10 times stronger than glass, clear Perspex® acrylic sheets don’t show any sign of ageing with continual use, meaning you can expect at least 20 years of use from your clear acrylic sheet without showing signs of deterioration.

Clear Perspex® Acrylic sheeting also provides up to 92% light transmission, higher than most types of glass, so becomes a preferable option to glass for use in windows or roofing.

Clear acrylic sheets are additionally easy to fabricate, cut, drill and shape to any requirements, so becomes a flexible material to work with. Subsequently, any cut surfaces can be polished and sanded easily for a more professional finish to your sheeting.

Plastics have a uniform thickness and smooth finish that makes them easier to keep clean with just warm soapy water and a soft cloth. This makes clear acrylic sheeting a great option in places like bathrooms or kitchens where you want to ensure the surface is hygienic, but it also means that clear acrylic sheeting can be used to great effect in commercial cooking spaces or even in medical settings.

100% recycled clear acrylic is available in 3mm & 5mm thickness and we offer a scratch-resistant coating on our 5mm which is great for table protectors.

Clear Acrylic Key Features

Excellent Clarity

Clear Perspex® acrylic sheets give excellent optical clarity, providing up to 92% light transmission, higher than most types of glass, making our clear plastic sheets an advantageous option for use in windows or as a skylight. 

Versatile

Clear Perspex® acrylic sheets are incredibly durable, so are often used as a secondary glazing alternative to glass, as it is resistant to impact and is shatterproof, becoming a safer option. Further, clear plastic sheets are particularly useful for sheds and around the home with children and pets.

Weather Resistant

Clear acrylic sheeting is UV and weather-resistant, as well as being resistant to prolonged exposure to sunlight. In addition, clear acrylic sheets are also resistant to most chemicals and have a low moisture absorption rate, so clear plastic sheets are useful for a host of different environments and are perfect for outdoor applications.

Lightweight

Clear cast acrylic weighs half as much as an equivalent glass pane, making installation, transportation, and handling an easier, and more attractive option.

Malleable

Clear cast Perspex® acrylic sheeting is easy to fabricate and can be cut, drilled and shaped to any requirements, so it’s a flexible material to work with. The cut surfaces can be polished and sanded easily for a more professional finish to your sheeting.

Maintainable

Clear Perspex® sheets are equally easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish. You can also polish a clear acrylic sheet to buff out any scratches.

Clear Perspex® sheets can be recycled all the way back to the original raw material, the monomer. We additionally offer 100% recycled acrylic sheets in 3mm, 5mm and 10mm thickness for those wanting to reduce their environmental damage.
