Detailed description:

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. 

Lightweight

Even thought 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.

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.

Tube arrived in good time and finishes off my Uni project a treat. Thank you xxx

Produced to dimensions, delivered quickly.

WILL USE AGAIN
