High impact resistance

Extruded acrylic tube has over ten times the impact strength of a glass equivalent. The hard wearing nature of the tube make it a popular choice for many applications.

Even though acrylic tube is a strong and rigid material, it does so while remaining lightweight.

Weather resistant

Extruded acrylic tube achieves high resistance to the elements making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Transparent / clear

The crystal clear acrylic walls of the tube allow high light transmission and optical clarity. 

Inexpensive

Acrylic tube, although strong and visually impressive is an inexpensive material due to its economic production process.

Recyclable

Acrylic tubing can be fully recycled.

Delivery on time quality wonderful Its a pity i ordered wrong size pipe i should have ordered a 1/2 inch pipe apart from that all was as it should be William

I had a glass display case for a collection of model cars. The display case was floor standing and had 4 shelves including the floor of the cabinet. The shelf loading was fairly light. Each shelf measured approximately 36x36x36 cms but the models which I wanted to display were dinky toy /corgi sized so I wanted to add shelves between the existing shelves to make better use of the space. Additional shelves were not available from the manufacturer. After some consideration, I ordered 4 pieces of acrylic and 16 acrylic tubes cut to suitable sizes and constructed 4 "tables" which could sit on the 4 shelves and so doubled the shelf space in the cabinet and the resultant shelf spacing was much more suitable for the size of the items which I wanted to display. The supporting tubes added to the overall appearance, looking like columns and so fitted in as part of the display. The acrylic was as clear as the glass in the cabinet and the columns were attached to the acrylic sheets by a small amount of acrylic cement .The "tables" can be easily lifted out if necessary.

I needed a range of tube diameters all cut to the same length for some science tests. These did exactly what I needed and they were cut more accurately than I would manage myself. If I ever need more I would buy them from here.

For decorative purposes, in a light display. Website very user friendly.

good quality. used for decoration

The plastic tubing was perfect for our hand wash dispensers as it was very strong and clear. The measurements given were accurate too.

I am using the tube to create an illuminated tube for photographic purposes. Quality was good and packaging protected the tube very well.

I used the acrylic tubes to house a roll of LED lighting. I now have created a 6 meter long strip light in the loft. All the tubes were cut to the correct size and delivered in a very secure cardboard tube. Very happy with the product and delivery.

Great product, just what I needed. I used this tubing on water features I make. Quick and precise ordering with quick delivery. Will be ordering from SimplyPlastics again. Thanks

I made a spring loaded captive fixture for storing Dyson Previous acrylic tube reair a broken miele vacuum cleaner and towel rack

I was very pleased with the speed of delivery and the quality of the product. Although it was a simple short length of tubing it was very strong and the dimensions perfect. It was use as an extension piece on a pond pump to raise the height of the small fountain thus stopping the water draining back into the reservoir when the pump was switched off, I recommend this company and their products unreservedly..

I purchase the tube for a project I’ve done for the garden. It’s call a floating tap.looks like the tap is floating on a stream of water

Quality of the product very good. Arrived extremely well packaged. It was exactly what I needed to make a floating tap water feature

I bought a length of clear acrylic tubing to make a holder for kitchen rolls in our motorhome. It is ideal, as I could specify exactly the dimensions that I needed.

Needed to protect my fishing quiver tips , this product is ideal the 15mm dia takes 3 tips and will stop them from breaking.

The tubing I ordered was for a prototype novelty gadget and if it is successful I will be putting in large orders for same and other plastic products from S/P. Excellent product and excellent tolerances. I use it with a lot of LEDs which illuminate the Perspex beautifully. Have already recommended S/P to colleagues. 10 out of 10.

Good quality.

I have used Simply Plastics on a few occasions when making my own filter components for my aquariums. The quality of their products is excellent and I will continue to buy from them in the future.

Used this clear tube to make a"floating tap" water feature, ideal for the job!

I used the piping to make a custom spray bar for my aquarium. I needed a larger internal diameter to fit the outlet tube of the Fluval FX6 filter. With a little bit of persuasion, I managed to marry the two, having drilled 12x5.5mm holes in the acrylic tube for the escape of the water. It makes an excellent spray bar if you need something larger than the normal ones you can buy.

Ordered 2 acrylic tubes, which arrived quickly, and are the exact measurements requested. Excellent.

ITEM ARRIVED FAST,AND WELL PACKED. Will be used for making fuel tank for model I/C engine

I needed to find a replacement tube for a beautiful antique glass dispenser/siphon I had found at a flea market. The original glass tube was broken. I was thrilled to find your website to replace the broken glass antique tube with a new plastic one (which incidentally looks as clear as glass). The fact that I could get something made to measure and sent so quickly was marvellous! Thank you.

Excellent service. HIgh quality materials cut perfectly to size. I used the tubes as stands for an acrylic shelf in a display cabinet so accurate size is critical. Fast service and a good price. Thanks, Paul

I am an art student and needed the tubing for an instalation...it was perfect for my needs.

The acrylic tube was used for a water feature

Used to construct a bubble tube for a sensory trolley in a care home. Worked really well!

I used the plastic tubing to replace a rusting flannel ‘hanging rail’ attached to a radiator in our bathroom. It was the perfect diameter for the existing supports, was very rigid, and supplied cut to the requested length. It will obviously never rust, & was supplied at a reasonable cost & time.

Highly recommended. I bought clear acrylic tubing in 20mm x 12 and 6mm lengths which I will cut to fashion navigation and other lights in my R/C modelling. The product is ideal, service first class and communication excellent.

Excellent quality.

Quality is good. Ends cut nice and straight.

The tube was used to support a string of lights inside a glass bottle to make a table lamp. It was just what I ordered. Thanks

Used to cover pull cord in care home for infection control

Good price good quality and on time.

The tubing appears to be good quality. However, it was not what I was expecting. The acrylic is very hard. I thought I was ordering a softer, flexible type of plastic tubing. So potential purchasers may wish to note this.

The product is being used as tubes into Reservoirs of plant troughs

Got exactly what I ordered for the time I ordered it.

Perfect for what I want - to make a lit and moving but indestructible toy for an autistic child. Came exactly as I asked for and superbly packaged.

Spot on

Part of it was for my Grand daughter's school Design Project and the rest for repairing some damaged bird feeders

A great product, very useful

Absolute quality . The company and products I bought and at an affordable price too . Will be using again and recommending to fellow marine keepers for supporting the rock work .

I used it as part of a floating tap water feature.

Good quality and good price

I'm an experimental artist. I stood the three short, different diameter, tubes on a canvas and poured different coloured acrylic paint into them. I chose the clear tubes as I could keep tabs on the colours I'd already used. The full tubes were then carefully lifted so the paint could spread across the canvas in a controlled way. I found all three tubes to be sturdy, steady, well cut and excellent for this procedure. I will continue to experiment with them and would recommend these products to other flow artists.

Use to make statement stand in a pond. Works very well. I have no problems with this tube. Will use this company again.

Excellent product, neatly cut to size. Good quality acrylic, crystal clear and strong.

As described. Satisfied customer

Good quality.

Glass shelf supports for display cabinet. A good solution for supporting extra shelves within an existing display cabinet. My only criticism is that it is quite an expensive way of supporting three shelves but the quality is good and the service was excellent, delivered two days after order.

I used the acrilic tube to make an LED light tube for my aquarium. It arrived when I was told it was going to all at a reasonable price.

LED Lighting, ran led strip through gives protection and makes them easy to mount with clips. Will recommend this product to others. E.J.

Perfect for making a spray bar for the aquarium filter. Highly recommended.

Tubing used to complete straw dispensers. Excellent quality,good value. Service 1st class, highly recommend this company.

I used these for balloon display stands. They were just what I needed. Thank you

I have a steam boat which uses drip feed lubrication from brass oil pots. This works fine but you cannot see how much oil is left in the pots without taking the lids off (and they can get quite hot!). I thought to replace the brass pot bodies with clear acrylic tubes instead, retaining the brass lids to retain the vintage appearance. Simply Plastics provided exactly what I needed, cut to the size I wanted and the order came by return of post. This was excellent service and I cannot rate them too highly.

Acrylic tube........... 1 metre strip of LEDs and hey presto a caravan awning light.

I required a small quantity of 8mm O.D. acrylic tubing and, via the web I identified "Simply Plastics" as a supplier. I placed my order and they delivered - a good product at a good price and in good time. Couldn't have asked for more.

Purchased 4 x 70 x 1000mm units. Good quality, instock. Collected items, great.

Used as base form for a mosaic.

I bought this as a replacement for a glass inspection part of a florin stick barometer reservoir the glass one are about £70, in acrylic far cheaper and not as fragile, the service from emails and phone call were excellent, postage next day, full recommended will definitely use again, if you don't see it ask? jimmy *****

Exactly what was needed for the project from a local supplier

It was used to add on to a coin saver

Excellent quality. Used as a vertical water gauge with rain collections systems.

Good and sturdy. Fitted to the end of a flexible tube to use as a syphon for a fish tank. Just the job.

I am a model enthusiast and found it useful to be able to order a small amount of plastic tubing and rod in various sizes. The website was easy to use, the items easy to identify and order, and delivery prompt.

Produced to dimensions, delivered quickly.

WILL USE AGAIN
