Detailed description:

Glass "effect" green edge

Glass "effect' green edged acrylic sheet imitates real glass with a very slight green tint to its appearance. This is most visible on the edges and can be used to great effect to fabricate products where the look of real glass is required.

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

Glass "look" 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 very easy to clean.

Weather resistant

With excellent resistance to the elements, cast acrylic performs 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.

Recyclable

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

Replace a broken round glass garden table. Great substitution at half the price of a glass replacement.

Very flexible with sizes and additional details needed on the phone and website is very user friendly too, as well as the mobile version. Fair prices and well wrapped too. Thanks

To create a leaded window to our front door Using space transplant paints

Needed to replace the glass top of a patio table. Chose the plastic that looks like glass and am very happy with it. Central hole for parasol perfectly cut. Well packaged and delivered within specified timescale. Would use company again.

I clumsily broke a circular toughened glass, ornamental table top and decided the acrylic option was best as a safer (and cheaper) replacement. I bought the Glass look Cast Acrylic with a centre hole and polished edges. Fits perfectly, is remarkably light and looks just as good as the original toughened glass. Great help from customer service by phone, item well wrapped for transit and delivered very quickly. Back in the good books again as well .....

We bought this 5mm deep glass look acrylic disc for the top of a wicker table in our summer house, which has an uneven woven surface unsuitable for putting drinking glasses on. The disc is perfect, exactly what we wanted, and has made our table much more user friendly. The disc arrived within 2 or 3 days, was perfectly packaged and had protective film on the surface. We like its glass look green edge, very occasionally the light catches it and it shines emerald, but we wouldn't swap it for a plain one.

I was looking for custom cut acrylic glass and accidentally stumbled to this website "Simply Plastic" and the rest is great, superb value for money, exactly what I've been asking easy to navigate website menu is simple and clear. Will recommend to anyone "Yes" anyone who are looking for made to measure acrylic glass product , will come back to purchase more.

Simple to order great replacement, Thank you .

I used the product to make an infinity mirror inside a model of a stargate product is top class as always would recommend highly.

Excellent product, used for secondary glazing a small round window.

Great product at a great price. Service was excellent.

Round windows - port holes - on a canal boat

Used behind kitchen cupboard door knobs. Excellent quality and precision of manufacture. Prompt delivery. Look absolutely brilliant and just like real glass. Thank you.

Ordered 495mm disc glass acrylic look, for a outdoor rattan table and very happy with look and manufacture of product, very easy ordering and opted for pickup which was speedy and painless

Used the products for tables top. Good quality and service.

The product was used to replace a clock face and was excellent. The only quibble was the postage cost but nonetheless, I can certainly recommend this company

I wanted to protect a mosaic table I made from the worst of the elements and this was the perfect solution.

Replaced glass table top with this, looks fine. Went for the glass effect hint of green, probably should have gone for just clear as in certain light it looks quite green. but overall am very happy with the product.

found on Google ,very fast delivery arrived before due date ,good company comms., Great product ,reasonably postage rates Have bookmarked then if need more.
