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.

Richard Todd 20/02/2017 22:14:10

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.

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.

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.
