Detailed description

Frosted finish

A frosted green finish, similar to that of etched glass with a matte finish on bothe sides.

Hard wearing

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

Light weight

While offering higher levels of clarity than glass, forest glass-look acrylic weighs half as much as an equivalent glass panel making fabrication, installation and transportation a far more attractive proposition.

Weather resistant

With excellent resistance to the elements, cast acrylic performs 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 and polymerised in batches in a carefully controlled manufacturing process.

Recyclable

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

What are polished edges?

When we cut an acrylic sheet to size, the saw blade produces a matte finish on the edges of the panel. We use a technique called diamond polsihing to polish the edges to a bright, smooth and glossy finish. 

Our diamond edge-polishing machine polishes the edge of acrylic by running a rotating, diamond tipped wheel along the edge of the material.

How do I clean acrylic?

  1. Blow or lightly brush away any dust and loose dirt from the surface of the acrylic
  2. Using a mild solution of lukewarm water and washing up liquid clean the surface of more resistant dirt and grime.
  3. Rinse with clean water.
  4. Blot dry with a microfibre cloth to prevent water spotting.

I bought this to put in one of my sideboard doors which had been broken. It matched perfectly and I am very pleased. This was the cheapest price I found.

I fixed it above a bespoke shower wall. Lighter than glass and does the job.

5mm acrylic sheet purchased to use as sink splashback in bathroom. Worked perfectly. Note this has a matte finish! I'm really happy with the final result.

A really nice material to work with. Cuts well with a laser cutter and when stacked together can create beautiful light effects. Excellent service as ever.

I wanted to renovate an old glass topped hall metal table. The glass broke years ago and the table was relegated to the garden. Now the BBQ season is here I decided to paint the old table and replace the old glass with a frosted acrylic sheet for use with the BBQ by having all the food stuff on it ready to cook etc. When not in use for the BBQ it serves a very nice potted plant holder. The acrylic sheet I ordered was just the job and very strong. No more broken glass.

Precisely cut, quick delivery, robust and looks amazing in my bathroom window reveals! Couldn't be more pleased. Thank you!
