Available in a wide range of colours, acrylic (as an alternative to the branded Perspex) sheeting can be used for a number of different applications for any home or business setting. This yellow sheeting is ideal for adding an aesthetic element to the surrounding décor and is perfect for stylish spaces with a modern touch. From kitchens and bathrooms to kids play rooms and businesses, yellow acrylic sheets can be used in a variety of spaces without the risk of its bold colour deteriorating or fading with time. Please note, this colour is slightly opaque, and allows 31% of light through (based on a 3mm thick sheet).
To ensure that your Premium Acrylic colour choice matches your requirements we suggest you purchase a sample in your preferred colour(s) before placing your main order. Once dispatched, colours and sizes cannot be changed.
Why choose yellow acrylic for your next project?
There are many benefits to using acrylic, from its durability to the ease of use thanks to its lightweight qualities. Acrylic plastic sheets are far stronger than glass but are just as reflective and offer excellent optical clarity, so they can be used as a safer alternative to glass sheeting. There are multiple options for ways to use acrylic, as well as several different ways to fix it to surfaces – it can be drilled in place or glued using a strong adhesive – so it’s the ideal material to work with for beginners and experts alike.
Acrylic, the Perspex equivalent, offers high levels of shock, abrasion and flex resistance too, so it’s very long lasting and provides great value for money, especially if you want a product that’s going to stand the test of time. It’s also easy to clean and requires less maintenance than other forms of wall or surface protection, such as tiling.

Is acrylic heat resistant?
Is acrylic suitable for secondary glazing?
Clear acrylic or polycarbonate would be best for secondary glazing. Windows larger than 800mm will benefit from being glazed with a thicker sheet to provide rigidity.
Is acrylic recyclable?
Acrylic is recyclable, however, as it’s not bio-degradable the process is not as easy as putting it in your recycle bin or taking it to a bottle bank. But you can re-use acrylic (e.g. Perspex), by cutting larger sheets into small pieces and forming them into other products.
