Detailed description:

Hard wearing

Cast acrylic is one of the hardest thermoplastic sheet materials available and its attractive aesthetics remain for longer than any other plastic sheet material.

Light weight

Black and white cast acrylic weighs half as much as an equivalent colour glass panel making fabrication, installation and transportation a far more attractive proposition.

High gloss finish and easy to clean

Its high gloss finish is not only very attractive but also more practically it's easy to clean.

Weather resistant

With excellent resistance to the elements, coloured cast acrylic performs very well outside. No significant changes in appearance are expected over 10 years.

Manufacturing process

Cast acrylic is manufactured by pouring monomer between two sheets of high quality glass in batches in a carefully controlled manufacturing process.


Cast acrylic can be recycled all the way back to the original raw material.

I make museum quality mounts and the blocks are ideal for supporting objects and show them off at their best

thank you :) these were as describes and as requested.

The product was very good quality the company could not have done any better. Well pleased

I bought an aluminium framed patio cover where the support posts had flat square feet to be screwed to the patio floor. I used the acrylic blocks (in black) as sandwich blocks under the square aluminium feet. The blocks were cut square to match the post feet but were 20mm larger all around. The black blocks changed the whole look of the aluminium posts as the frame was finished in a very dark grey colour. Most important was the fact my wife liked the look and even forgave me for buying the cover in the first place. PS, the blocks arrived smack on time and perfect.

My radiator cover was a bit too short so I ordered white acrylic blocks to lift it up. Such and easy and clean neat looking solution. Website was easy to use, delivery was quick. Will definitely use again, much better than Golding up paper to lift wobbly furniture legs!

Very good product and delivery

Used to fabricate a new boom end for my boat. Simple to order, totally as described, great price and arrived in good time. Would definitely recommend.

This was used for support blocks & a home project. It arrived as promised & was top quality

I bought the acrylic block to form a part for an old lawnmower, as they had discontinued the part, the original part was made from plastic. And the acrylic block was ideal for the job.

I used this as a base for a special vase. It looks absolutely fantastic. Great quality with perfect surface and smooth corners. The service was amazing and very fast even though it was the Christmas period.

Bought as a stand for a Christmas ornament and works perfectly. Delivered very quickly and affordably priced. Glad to support a UK business, and wouldn’t hesitate to buy from this company again. Excellent product & service.

Used to create new door glide on shower cubicle which had broken. Excellent material, easy to work with

I ordered these acrylic blocks to reposition a retractable parcel shelf on my MG ZT Tourer. They were perfect for the task.

I needed to raise my TV. ...so the remote would work above the sound bar. Simply plastics had the solution and at a great price. Thanks to you all for the very quick delivery.

used to make runners for a lift. excellent finish

The products I purchased were used as packers to secure a fish tank cabinet to a wall and also as packers to secure a bracket for lighting for the fish tank. Because all packers would be visible I wanted good quality blocks. These are exceptional quality.

Needed some small blocks to form spacers when making a new cover for my keyboard. These were the ideal size and colour. I have dealt with the company previously and found it easy to specify my requirements and order. the items were delivered well packed and in a reasonable time. My only (small) reservation is that I received no indication of the proposed delivery date prior to the delivery. Would certainly deal with the company again and recommend it.

Wonderful bespoke service. Used these to prop up a side table that was too short. Much better than the ugly leg risers available on Amazon.

Good workable plastic. Used to lathe wheels.

Using for the base of museum mounts, excellent quality and safes a lot of work ,no cutting or polishing !😁

The Quality of this product was excellent easy to cut and shape

My products were used to daisplay 2 very special nautical trophies for a customer. The overall quality and finish of the product was perfect and i will recomend and order again ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Test piece to see how it responds to engraving

I used the block to adapt a sat nav mount for my motorcycle. The size I asked for was the size I received. Very quick delivery

Great customer service and I received the products promptly


Good quality acrylic block, exactly what I needed.

Due to a piece of trim on the bottom edge of the tv preventing us from centering the control box I needed something to raise the tv slightly. There was nothing commercially available so we had two blocks cut one to go under each leg.. Just the job, we had all edges polished and it looks very stylish. Good price too.

Spacer block

Ordered two blocks cut to size. They arrived on time and at a good price. They were cut to my exact dimensions. I am replacing my wooden garage door frame due to rot and i didn't want the new vertical posts to sit directly on the floor so the plastic blocks will act as damp proof insulators for the posts to sit on as they are cut to match the post size. I will fix them to the bottom of the posts with brass screws so no corrosion.

Product was exactly to spec. I needed a stand-off to use as a mounting for a dashcam. These blocks wer perfect for that.

Many thanks 5 out of 5

Very pleased, these blocks were used for museum displays. Also communication and delivery prompt

The quality of the custom made blocks was excellent. Manufactured immediately and to spec asked for. Delivered day after. More than happy with service and product. Would certainly use simply plastics again.

Excellent products, highly recommended, excellent customer service.
