Introduction to Acrylic Sheets
Acrylic is used throughout the world as a lightweight and shatter-proof alternative to glass. However, acrylic is typically able to withstand a greater impact than glass of the same thickness. This makes it ideal for a variety of interior and exterior applications.
When buying acrylic, you may see it being referred to as Plexiglas or Perspex. These are particular brands, but most acrylic sheets offer similar advantages to homeowners. Some sheets are available with tints, but clear acrylic sheets remain most popular.
When buying acrylic sheets online, you should ensure they feature UV protection. This is particularly important if you intend to use them outdoors, where ultraviolet could cause discoloration and warping otherwise.
If you will be using these sheets inside, polystyrene sheets may be more appropriate. Although they lack UV protection, they offer similar benefits to acrylic. They are particularly ideal as a splashback, room divider, and wallpaper protector.
Uses for Clear Acrylic Sheets
Acrylic is a highly versatile material, with its flexibility and strength being suitable for a variety of applications. Due to the cost-effectiveness of acrylic sheets, they can be used as either a permanent or temporary glazing too.
Whether you’re repairing a broken window or want to protect an existing window, clear acrylic sheets are ideal. They allow plenty of natural daylight through whilst being far tougher than glass. Acrylic can also be fitted safely without any specialist tools.
Available in lengths of up to 2.4m and widths of 1.2m, acrylic is great for dividing rooms or creating private areas. Due to their weight and strength, acrylic sheets can be easily passed through a property and fitted into place without the risk of shattering.
From cloches to cold frames, clear acrylic sheets will protect your plants from frost whilst allowing daylight to pass through. Unlike many other materials, acrylic is also flexible and can be drilled without the risk of cracking.
