Detailed description:

Impact resistance

Polycarbonate sheet has over 200 times the strength of glass while being half the weight. It's virtually unbreakable. The strength and impact resistance of the material makes it suitable for applications where safety and security is required.

Fire resistance

With an excellent UK class 1 fire rating, polycarbonate is often used in public buildings.

Weather resistant

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

I needed a replacement rainguard for a moth trap. The options of thickness and custom sizes meant that I could buy a bespoke product at a very good price. The speed of the service was an added bonus!

Used to fabricate fog light covers, dimensions correct, good value.

The product was exactly as advertised. Seems very good quality. We are going to use it to repair polycarbonate roofing sheets that have broken around the fixing screws. They seem to be an ideal solution to the problem.

Replacement for glass on a garden light. Quick delivery. Good price. Perfect fit.

This polycarbonate 2mm thick disc was just what I needed and delivered quickly. I had a round glass topped bistro table with an open lower circle between the 3 legs. I used the disc to make a useful lower shelf on the ridge this circle created.

Set of two inspection windows for Flight Design CTSW aircraft wing and a spare. Stronger than original Perspex items and fraction of the cost. Great!

Product delivered exactly as ordered and well finished.

Bought them to make personalised coasters. They were well cut, cut to the exact required size and still had there protective covers on, with no damage at all. Brilliant surface once again.

Absolutely brilliant service and a really good product. Will recommend these guys any time ...

Clear plastic 62mm discs for covering air vent in newly enclosed sun room. Although ventilation of roof is important but inserting these in some vents it reduced heat loss. They were well cut with clean edges and well packed and received as advertised.

I used the discs to protect my fog lights from stones, works very well didn't change the light beam much.

Used this for a home made Router table insert.

Used as secondary glazing on a porthole window which was draughty. Has worked perfectly, really improving things. Perfect fit. Option of having drilled holed made the fit easy.

lens replacement. very good

I needed a clear plastic disk the exact dimensions of a CD that could be decorated using white-board pens. I bought one to try as prototype - which worked fine so I will be ordering more.

fantastic, fast delivery and great customer service

Needed some plastic discs for trumpet mic discs for our big band. Trumpet players often find they can't hear themsleves in a big band, so putting a 10" plastic disc on the mic allows some sound to be reflected back. I originally thought acrylic would be best, but I know from past experience that it can crack easily. I went for polycarbonate which is much stronger and fits the bill perfectly. 10" dia with a 1" hole was what I got. I needed to open up the hole a few mm with a conecut to make it fit a standard mic, but that was easy. My five discs came within a few days, and were nicely finished, They even had a protective film which was a delight to peel off. Many thanks.

I used the sheet for a garden table project. The disc was for the top of the table. The dimensions were perfect as we're the pre drilled holes, the website was really easy to use and the price compared to other websites was very good.

Fast service delivered on time. Would recommend without hesitation.

Fitted well, arrived quickly and as described.

Excellent service and price, quick delivery. This item was used to replace a broken tier on a cupcake display stand. Brilliant!

Hi all, I bought some 10" and 7" polycarbonate discs to make my own recordings on a vintage record cutting lathe, I'll be buying from this company again. ++++++++++
