Details

Perfect for DIY enthusiasts, hobbyists, and professionals, our bold vibrant translucent acrylic provides a high gloss finish, illuminating a slightly translucent colour to space as a result of the light that passes through. Translucent Perspex masterfully illuminates and adds a colourful element to light.

This can be used as an effective way of replicating coloured glass, or by utilising clever interior design techniques, to inject some light and playfulness into space.

Ten times stronger than glass, our Perspex® acrylic sheets are shattered resistant, as well as UV and weather-resistant, making them ideal for use in both indoor and outdoor projects.

Their high durability and low moisture absorption rate makes translucent acrylic a suitable option for fitting around the home, without fear of waterlogging, or from causing harm, unlike glass sheets. 

As a result of this, you can expect at least 20 years of continued use from your sheeting without showing signs of deterioration to the product, or the translucent colour.

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.

Translucent Perspex® sheets are equally easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish. One of the main benefits of coloured acrylic is that regardless of consistent and regular cleaning, there will be no impact on the boldness of the colour that illuminates through.

Versatile

Ten times stronger than glass, our colourful translucent acrylic sheets are shattering resistant, as well as long-lasting making them ideal for use in both indoor and outdoor projects.

With exceptional durability and weighing half as much as glass, our translucent acrylic sheets are able to withstand up to 10 times more impact than glass.

Food Safe

Our translucent acrylic sheeting is made from food-safe materials allowing it to also be easy to maintain and keep clean. Therefore, our dark blue acrylic is ideal for use in kitchens, both domestic and professional, as worktop savers, tabletop covers and splashbacks.

Weather Resistant

With both UV and weather resistance, the sheets can withstand the most severe weather conditions, salty spray, or intense Sun rays showing no signs of deterioration from the elements.

Frequently Asked Questions

What tolerance do you cut to?

We cut to a tolerance of +/-1mm.

What is your delivery timescale?

3-7 working days.

Is mirrored acrylic like normal mirror?

Mirrored acrylic is a flexible material, and needs to be attached to a perfectly flat surface. We recommend attaching it to MDF or something similar, making sure the adhesive is spread in a thin even layer across the acrylic. we also recommend using the 5mm thick acrylic as it is more rigid.

Can you cut any shape?

Yes, in acrylic. We will shortly be able to also cut any shape in polycarbonate as well.

What's your standard radius corner?

20mm, but we can cut to your requirements.

How many holes do I need in my acrylic?

1 per corner should be sufficient for smaller pieces. You might want to consider an extra hole in the middle if your sheet is larger.

Can I cut acrylic?

Yes, you can. Just take it slow and easy.

Can I put acrylic behind a hob?

Not if it is gas or electric. You need a gap of 5cm between an induction hob and the acrylic.

Do you fit the acrylic?

No, we don't. We do provide some templates which should help you to take your measurements. The acrylic is easy to install by any competent DIYer.

What's the difference between acrylic and Perspex?

Perspex is a brand name. It is the same as acrylic.
