Why should I use polycarbonate instead of glass for my greenhouse?
Polycarbonate is available as a clear, durable sheet that is over 200 times stronger than glass, making it a far safer option for areas where there’s a risk of damage or breakage. Despite its strength, it’s incredibly lightweight and easier to fit than glass panes, as well as being UV and weather resistant. Our glass plastic sheets are available in different thicknesses to suit any project with the ability to let plenty of light through and the heat in. These sheets are easy to maintain and clean and can be transported much easier than fragile glass panes.

Where else can I use Polycarbonate?
Polycarbonate is a flexible and durable material that has a multitude of uses in and around the home, as well as for commercial spaces. It makes a great alternative to glass in shed windows or children’s playhouses where there’s a risk of them getting knocked, as well as boat windows for a safer and more lightweight option. Polycarbonate can also be used for cold frames and garages. Within the home, polycarbonate is ideal for secondary glazing.

Is mirrored acrylic like normal mirror?

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.
