Always great quality products from this supplier

Good Quality.used as a partition filler wall to cover pipes in the Kitchen

Ordered this together with a similar sized piece of Perspex as I was not sure what to use. In the end I chose the Perspex and that did the job wonderfully. That does not detract from the usual excellent service of accurate size, quality of product and speedy delivery expected as the norm from Simply Plastic. They continue to impress and appear happy to provide the non-commercial customer with small orders for which I am always grateful. I am sure that the Alli composite sheet will come into use sooner rather than later.

Really good quality, delivered on time

Used this for Model Railway control panels. Came exactly to size as ordered. Delivery took some time perhaps because of Covid (hence 4star) , however the product is excellent for this application. Easy to drill and looks very smart and convincing using black ‘go-faster’ tape to denote the tracks on the shiny white surface.

Replacement for distorted blades of a ceiling fan. The material was easy to cut with a jigsaw and the edges rubbed down with a fine file. it appears tp be adequately stiff.

I bought these for oil paint portraits as I wanted a beautifully smooth ground to work on. The panel absolutely has been everything I wanted and more. Lightweight, smooth and a dream to work with. I found the price to be fantastic and delivery was fast. I will definitely be using this again. Thank you.

I received the first package that was damaged in transit and the company replaced them very quickly without a fuss, would recommend to a friend

excellent quality, ordered cut to size with corners would recommend!

I used to order from another company based in the south west (who i won’t name and shame) who time after time messed up, delivered damaged goods, were unprofessional at every level. Then I switched suppliers to simply plastics and they have been perfect, on time, and actually bother to wrap their deliveries properly so it’s well protected and had never arrived damaged. F the south west, it’s essex all the way for me now for my deliveries into London

This is a good quality product, which I use as a painting panel. I glue Linen on to the panel and prepare it for painting. Apparantly the panel can be prepared and painted on as it is, but I havn't tried that. An archival panel, lightweight but rigid. Would deffinately recommend this product ...

great product for signage

Great company to buy from, would recommend to a friend

To protect french garden door from dog scratches !!! Quality item.

Im using the panels to paint fine art Landscapes and to then frane them in tray frames . The aluminium is light and a firm base to use palette knives on. I havent completed them yet they are waiting to make up a new collection .

Good product, made to the correct size which was important to us, first time l have dealt with this company, they are always very pleasant and communication is very good.

I use this product for cutting templates to use in ceramic manufacture. It came quickly, well packaged, at a competitive price, and exactly the quality I need.

Sheet to be framed and used for external signage. Looks good, rigid enough to cope well without being heavy. Great service

outdoor signage

I used this product to cover an unsightly space in my kitchen. This is the second time that I have purchased from Simply Plastics and for quality, price and service I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Used to form an access panel in a horsebox roof - worked very well, looks good, waterproof, light and strong.

I use this product as a smooth and rigid surface to produce oil paintings on. It is a great alternative to canvas, board or wood.

I use these dibond panel as a substrate for my artwork. I now favour this media as I use resin a great deal on my work and the large canvases are a problem with sagging under the weight. I now no longer have this problem and an added bonus is that they are light too! A great service from Simply Plastics, I have repeat ordered & I would definitely recommend them.

I used this product to put a sign for the Oxford Gliding Club onto the end of our hangar. It is dead easy to use and I am sure it will be there for many years. Photo avail;able :-)

Perfect item, as described

The product has been used to renew a sign, that had become damaged. The new sign is a really bright white, and rigid, so easy to see and use
