Details

Dark red Perspex® acrylic sheets have a wide range of uses for home, commercial and DIY projects. With varying shades and tones available, our dark red Perspex® acrylic is a vibrant, versatile and easy to machine, hard-wearing material for a variety of applications.

Our dark red is elegant, timeless and sophisticated with roots in royal British heritage. Utilising dark red in a space can transform it into a place of decorum and regality. With a subtly of blue allowing the sheet to compliment shadow, the dark red sheet is fully capable of lifting a space bringing a unique warmth and character.

Ten times stronger than glass, our dark red Perspex® acrylic sheets are shatter resistant, as well as long-lasting. As a result, this makes our acrylic sheets ideal for use in both indoor and outdoor projects. In addition to this, their UV and weather resistance makes them great alternatives to glass windows.

Dark red Perspex® acrylic 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. Dark red Perspex® sheets are equally easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish.

Most importantly, our dark red Perspex® acrylic boasts fantastic aesthetic properties. With a diverse variety of shades available, our dark red acrylic sheets make for great creative projects in the home, and commercial spaces.

Typically Perspex® acrylic sheets are commonly used as an alternative to glass, offering great optical clarity and durability, however, where dark red acrylic excels is in making a unique and creative option. For example, our dark red acrylic sheets can be used to protect work surfaces from wear and tear, as wall protectors, as contemporary and attention-grabbing signage, and even for shelving that adds a decorative touch. 

Further, as acrylic is so easy to maintain, it is great for spaces where dirt and grime build up quickly such as bathrooms, outdoor applications and even in nurseries and kids’ playrooms where you need easy to clean surfaces that can simply be wiped down. For retail displays and advertising boards, dark red acrylic is an ideal choice of material as it provides more versatility in terms of design and aesthetics, with all the same great qualities that standard acrylic sheets provide.
