Detailed description:

Wide colour range

A wide range of attractive colours are available to suit all tastes and design requirements.

Hard wearing

Cast acrylic is one of the hardest thermoplastic sheet materials available and its attractive aesthetics remain for longer than other plastic sheet materials.

Light weight

Coloured cast acrylic weighs half as much as an equivalent glass panel making fabrication, installation and transportation a far more attractive proposition.

High gloss finish and easy to clean

Its high gloss finish is not only very attractive but also more practically it's easy to clean.

Weather resistant

With excellent resistance to the elements, cast acrylic performs very well outside. No significant changes in appearance are expected over 10 years.

Manufacturing process

Cast acrylic is manufactured by pouring monomer between two sheets of high quality glass and polymerised in batches in a carefully controlled manufacturing process.


Cast acrylic can be recycled all the way back to its original raw material monomer.

Good quality, cost and quick service. Wpuld recommend.

Lamp defusing back...

Excellent product - perfect for what I needed. We have a small round window that I’d like to block visibility for without stopping the light. Thanks

Product. Two discs used for kitchen lighting Perfect as a light diffuser. Frosted acrylic polished edges. Lighter and safer than glass. Arrived very well protected and in cushioned cardboard box. Will use them again. Considering work too protectors next also perhaps for a dressing table and chest of drawers.

Purchased to replace outside dining table top. Good company to deal with and very helpful. I ordered product on line and after submitting my order realised that I had given an incorrect measurement for the middle hole which I needed cutting. Phoned and they were extremely helpful and took the correct measurement, amending the order with immediate affect. Delivery, etc were as promised and I was kept up to date re progress. Would definitely use again

have bought this several times in different configurations, and always consistent top quality

I’ve used this product to place on top of my glass coffee table as the glass was so scratched I am so impressed with the new look and the difference it has made One very happy customer

Use for diffusing microscope light. Works best at higher magnifications


I was trying to make some old light fittings look a little less stuffy. The discs of frosted Perspex have transformed them into modern lighting accessories for pennies. Amazing product exactly as I requested. Top work

Exactly what I was looking for. I turned the product into a turntable clamp for my Elite rock turntable Mk2. Quality was perfect, and I was supplied with exact dimension as requested.

Customer service was good.

Excellent product. I broke a frosted glass disc on a sculptured lamp and this is even better than the original frosted glass

Great service, quick delivery, good price and quality. I ordered acrylic disks to use for signs for an event company and they were perfect for what i needed. Will definitely use this company again

Used as a better top to a side table we had ordered elsewhere. Cut perfectly, fitted well, does the job, good price and great service.


I have a downlighter that used to have a plastic 'push in' lamp protector. Over a number of years, the heat from the original lamps caused the plastic material to become brittle and disintegrate. More recently, I've changed to a LED lamp (much cooler), but the original lamp protectors went out of production many years ago. Then had the idea of protecting the downlighter externally with some sort of acrylic disc and found this company during a web search. I completed their online ordering proforma and sudsequently, a disc to my dimensions, including pre-drilled fixing holes, has since been received & fitted. Very pleased with the result as it looks better than the original and has avoided the need for sourcing a replacement downlighter assembly & all the work that would entail. Also, the disc was supplied at a very reasonable cost and quite quickly considering current conditions.

Used to replace a circular glass disc on a lamp sadly smashed by my cat. Perfect replacement. Saved the day albeit I should have had the holes drilled at the time of ordering. Very pleased.

I needed an illuminated base/uplighter to show a hand-made carpenter’s ‘Fairy Tale Castle’. So I used two 30cm discs and a 50mm band (heated and bent to form a skirt). The top disc was opaque. Inside I curled 1m of 5v LEDs. The effect was just as I wanted. Thx.

Bought this and some coloured discs in different sizes for a home project. They came quickly and were perfect for the job.


It replaced a piece of Perspex for our light fitting, fitted a treat and was a good price to other companies visited.

Perfect, just what I needed. Excellent product and service.

Quality of the product was great Ease of using the website was great Speed of delivery was great Range of product options was great Overall? Great!


The product was perfect for our needs and was delivered very promptly.

light diffuser - worked great

Ideal product, exactly as described and a perfectly sized made-to-measure cut. Thank you. I used them to fill a gap within some pendant lights to allow me to use cheaper smaller bulbs without leaving a gaping hole. ...random or what :)

I used this product for eye discs on the stork of a full size Dalek I am building. Excellent quality and precise engineering.

Excellent quality and finish. Arrived swiftly well packaged. First class product.

Arrived in good time and well packaged . I am using the disc as a light diffuser and I am very pleased with it. Would like a 2 mm version of possible. Would definitely use again. Thank you very much.

I used this product to diffuse light from household pendant lamps. The product description was spot on as was the sizing. It came well packaged and on time and was suitably labelled and presented.

Supplied exactly as described. Well protected and suitably packaged for postage.
