The sheets of Perspex were to cover two inset wall led light cavities, the product was excellent quality and exactly as ordered, diffusing the leds into blocks of colour just as I had imagined.

Used to make a light box to scan black and white negatives of early 1900s. It worked perfectly and the staff were very helpful with a problem I had.

I used this product to act as a diffuser for my LED under unit strip lighting which has given me excellent light spread

A small piece of frosted perspex used to diffuse the light source of a light box. Much safer than glass (which was the original material used) and did the job well. A good clear white diffused light was the result.

I ordered a very small piece of frosted plastic, hardly worth describing! But it arrived promptly and in good order, and was exactly as expected.

To protect vulnerable skirting board. Product made to exact dimensions required. Delivered on time. Very well packaged.

Used for an old light unit from a radio station. Good price paid and exactly what I wanted. Will be ordering again soon. Thanks. Highly recommend!!!

Really pleased with quality so pleased I decided to use on my other cupboards in my static, cut centres out added perspex added lighting inside when doors are closed light shines just suble enough for the desired effect. Would add extra stars.

I used my light diffuse Perspex for an arcade machine project , the quality was excellent , and the service was second to none .

Used for wall lighting. Found the quality of the product excellent.

Used for a bar top to diffuse light from underneath. Works perfectly.

I am making a clock that is back lit for my granddaughter and the perspex is ideal. Many thanks for the prompt service.

Used this Perspex to make a light box. Custom size fitted perfectly and great for the job :)

Wanted this to use as diffusers in photography . Brilliant , just the job .

Good price, nice plastic, cut to the millimetre.
