Perspex cut and measured to size. It was just unfortunate that my measurement sizes were out by about a milliimetre. But otherwise fast delivery service, fairly priced and good quality. Perfect for protecting artwork.

Details

Clear polycarbonate sheeting is an ultra-tough, versatile material with a wide range of possible uses, from secondary glazing to riot shields, to external panels. This ultra-tough material can be purchased in varying thicknesses to provide further levels of insulating.

As a result of the multiple options of thickness, this enables the Plexiglass sheets to have transparency and low thermal transmission, meaning this is a perfect alternative to glass panes.

With great uses both indoors and out, this weather-resistant product makes a fine addition as a longer-lasting replacement, whether that be in a bathroom installation as a shower screen, or outside, such as by adding plexiglass windows to a polycarbonate greenhouse, making them a safer, longer-lasting alternative.

For ideas on how to transform your glass into polycarbonate panels, check out our guides on Plexiglass sheets, and where you can use them.

Polycarbonate maintains its appearance for years due to its scratch-resistant qualities. It is easy to keep clean and hygienic, making it ideal for use in kitchens or bathrooms and can be washed with just soap and warm water without the need for chemical cleaners.

It’s a popular material for use in gardens, polycarbonate greenhouses windows and children’s play areas, as it is impact resistant and more secure than glass or regular plastic. It can be used as secondary glazing or for windows indoors, where security may be an issue. In fact, there are many potential uses for clear polycarbonate sheeting, from carports and garages to swimming pool covers, shower screens and splashbacks, and even glazing for skylights.

The most common use for clear polycarbonate sheets is as a replacement for glass, as it is shatterproof and far more lightweight, making it easier to handle and work with. Polycarbonate sheets can be purchased in a variety of thicknesses to suit your project, as well as it being easy to cut into virtually any size or shape.

Polycarbonate is easy to fit and can be installed easily and safely by any DIY novice. It can be drilled with ease, or if you’d prefer you can let us know where you need the drill points to be and we can do that for you to save you time and effort when it comes to installing the sheet – just let us know when you’re placing the order.

Key Features

Excellent Clarity

Our clear Plexiglass polycarbonate sheets give excellent optical clarity, providing up to 90% light transmission, higher than most types of glass, making it an advantageous option for use in windows or as a skylight. 

Versatile

300 hundred times stronger than glass and 30 times stronger than our Perspex® acrylic sheets, our clear polycarbonate sheets are shatter resistant, as well as long-lasting making them ideal for use in both indoor and outdoor projects. You can expect at least 20 years of continued use from your sheeting without showing signs of deterioration.

Durable

With a higher impact tolerance to acrylic sheeting, clear polycarbonate sheets make a stronger, long-lasting alternative to both acrylic and glass. At its thickest point polycarbonate is also resistant to bullets, and its brake form is a tenth of an inch thick.

Weather Resistant

With both UV, abrasion, and weather resistance, the sheets can withstand the most severe weather conditions, making them fantastic alternatives to glass windows.

Lightweight

Polycarbonate weighs up to five times less than an equivalent glass pane, making installation, transportation, and handling an easier, and more attractive option.

Malleable

Polycarbonate is capable to be fabricated and altered to any requirements including drilling, or shaping making Plexiglass polycarbonate sheets a flexible material to work with.  Polycarbonate is also able to be perfectly thermoformed without losing the strength or quality to fabricate. Plexiglass polycarbonate can also be cut with appropriate machinery, 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 polycarbonate sheets are equally easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish.
