Excellent product and service, I used the aluminium composite sheet to clad in steel works around black aluminium sliding doors and window. It worked a treat and looks fantastic, would definitely recommend this and will use simply plastics again.

A great product with multiple uses. For example I have two plates at 17cm x 17cm which I then in turn added a self adhesive rubber with the same measurement and used them for sitting a set of bookshelf speakers onto. Then another piece this time a circular cut with a 15cm radius and again applied an self adhesive rubber at 2mm thick, again same dimensions to completely cover the base and used it Matt side up for an mouse mat on a small desk, perfect. A very versatile product.

We used this product to stop our dog seeing other animals and now he doesn't bark so much perfect product

Bottom section of a shed door was rotten and this patched the area perfectly and discretely. It also allowed the protruding, protective, door-sill to be reattached. Sturdy and cut to size perfectly it was a doddle to attach and looks seemless. I reckon it has given the door years of life at a bargain price!

Spot on (again) .. just what we needed, quick flash!

Product was used as a replacement cover for electric heater battery, did the trick

Great. Used as blanking panels around waste pipe once scribed in to suit. Good quality and easily cut with a hacksaw. Nice finish. Looks decent. Very pleased.

I used this product to act as a slim window sill in my kitchen, it’s fantastic and looks great, strong yet thin which perfectly matches the tile trim that i have. It also has both gloss and matt finishes on either side which is a nice option to have. 10/10

Needed the exact size to put on small door panels for decoration purpose and match the rest of the tv unit. I cant be happier with the service i got, perfect panels cut to my required size, kept informed from order to delivery, plus they arrived super fast. Would definitely shop again.

Received really quickly and exactly what we were looking for at a fair price, thank you

The panel was used to cover a draughty fireplace that is rarely used. It arrived well packed and was cut exactly to my measurements. It did the job and looks great. I have used simply Plastics before and have been very happy with their products and service.

Great product and arrived promptly. I’ll keep using this company to buy Aluminium composite

Purchased Black Ali Laminate. Arrived on due date and cut exactly to the dimensions I detailed. Pristine condition! Easy to use web site and good service.

Great quality and it came very quickly. I’ll keep buying from them.

Aluminium composite I used for sign and the quality is very good,and fantastic customer service,Many thanks

I have ordered from your company several times over the past year, I have always been able to order exactly what I need and with the fast reliable deliveries your company is an example of professional behaviour and excellence in your trade. Thank you

Was used to make a boat instrument panel. Perfect for the job.

Ideal for the application, blocking open fire, fitted perfectly, great and thanks.

Top quality product. Great service.

To cover behind the cooker as rest of wall between cupboards had black splashback, but wanted metal rather than wood based behind cooker. Excellent material, size was exactly as I ordered.

It was for a support for TV in a motorhome, done the job brilliantly and a great finish, and got exactly what I wanted would definitely recommend Simply Plastics

Excellent product. Used this as a cover to fit behind an un-used coal fireplace fret

Used as backing plates for small computer equipment on a rough surface.

Great product used for splash back in kitchen

I used the product for an edging for my garden. It fitted perfect, as it arrived cut to the size I ordered. It was well wrapped so it was not scratched or damaged in transit. The company emailed me to let me know it had left factory and was on way to me great customer service. I will certainly use this company and it's products again and will certainly recommend it to family and friends.

Very pleased with the quality

Excellent product which met my expectations and delivered as promised.

Back slash and looks stunning.

I've never had cause to purchase a small sheet of plastic before so when I decided that the ideal thing to put at the back of my open- backed TV stand to hide the ugly wires that are necessary to keep my TV, CD, Sky box, Smart Meter, broadband router and cordless landline phone working I spent ages trying to work out the problem. Once I had found the answer I was a bit lost but luckily found Simply Plastics. The customer service staff were exceptionally helpful and very soon the plastic, which was lovely and shiny on one side and matt on the other so matched easily with the TV table was fitted. Now the messy wires have gone and the floor looks so much better. I cannot recommend Simply Plastics enough. Gina Coles

I used this for a diy job at home to close off a hole in the wall left by the removal of an item no longer needed but it had to be lightweight and easy to fit. This composite sheet worked brilliantly, product was cut exactly to my measurements, so I'm well pleased.

I used this as a cover for my black laminate sink - excellent product.

What great service. Order one delivered two days later.

Registration plate and rear lamp mounting on an evocation of a 1913 3 wheel sports car. I required a light but strong plate that will accommodate some vibration. The plate has been shaped and fitted, full evaluation to be carried out.

Excellent product, highly recommended

This was purched as a replacement-top for an outdoor table. It fiits perfectly and the quality is of a high standard.

Just the job to carry out the repairs needed. Delivered on time.

Great product. Used as a back splash. Quick delivery. Very happy. Many thanks

I used the product as backing for a fake fireplace, the Matt side matches the slate hearth perfectly. It’s light easy to cut and fix in place. Great price too. Delivery was on time. I’m really pleased with this product.

Used as blanking panel where rack equipment has been removed. Smart finish, stiff enough to hold its shape, easy to cut. Prompt and accurate delivery from Simply Plastics.

I used the plate as a shelve the quality was excellent and the delivery service was first class!

Used this to replace asbestos boards on the outside of a house . This product worked a treat and looks really good . Very easy to drill though so i could fix it into place . Delivery of the 1st order was abit slow and i had to contact the company , but it was sorted out as soon as i did

Used as splashback behind our halogen hob. It looks very good and because of its composition is safe to use in this heat area. I have limited my assesment to 4* as the first sheet arrived with a scratch and although Simply Plastics replaced it foc pretty quickly i do not know at this stage just how hard wearing it is going to prove to be or whether acrylic would be a better option as the splashback is some 200mm from the hob

This was used to cover an outside gate. The quality is great and it was cut to the exact measurements required. Excellent company, no hesitation in recommending them. Thanks

With advice l used it to put it at the back of a artificial fire and it looks really good.

To form a dashboard section on a rally car, light and rigid Easy to form and drill, rigid good finish once complete the protective film removed, good job.

Good product
