High optical clarity

Acrylic picture frame glass has exceptionally high levels of light transmission creating optimum optical clarity, even higher than that of glass.

Lightweight

Acrylic picture frame glazing is half the weight of glass benefiting the production, and hanging of frames. This can be even more advantageous for use in larger size frames where weight can increase substantially.

Shatterproof

Unlike standard glass acrylic is shatterproof making it a safer material to work with and suitable for display in any area.

High impact strength

Acrylic has over ten times the impact strength than glass so ideal for frames hung in high traffic areas.

Used the product for reframing a picture. The sheet of acrylic glass was cut perfectly to size and well finished. This product is much easier to use than traditional glass, and the improved safety is an added advantage. Very happy with product, value for money and service.

Alan Currie 01/03/2017 20:18:21

Bought 5 sheets of 3mm acrylic for picture framing cut to size. Excellent product, properly finished and first class packaging for delivery which also arrived on time. Can't think of any way they can improve their service other than giving it to me for nothing. ;-)
