Detailed description:

High optical clarity

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


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.


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.

Acrylic picture frame glass is supplied cut to size ready for installation straight out of the box.

I purchased 5 different size perspex for various picture frames I was making! Really great value and especially important that these are made to measure. All 5 have proved to be perfect fit for my frames. They all look great, as good as glass in a frame but much cheaper and lighter in weight. Very impressed and will be buying from here again.
