Detailed description:

Glass "effect" green edge

Glass "effect' green edged acrylic sheet imitates real glass with a very slight green tint to its appearance. This is most visible on the edges and can be used to great effect to fabricate products where the look of real glass is required.

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

Glass "look" cast acrylic weighs half as much as an equivalent 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 very easy to clean.

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.


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

Used for top of coffee table. Very happy with the product

I needed this Perspex for a door for my vivarium. Not only was the sheet cut to the exact MM that I requested, you couldn’t tell it isn’t glass without touching it. I was originally going to go to my local DIY store to buy it and I’m glad I didn’t, no hassle cutting it myself, cheaper, delivered to my door, I would recommend the product and the company without doubt. When I had a question I emailed them and got a reply within the hour. Great customer service and great products. Thank you

Fantastic. Exactly what we expected.

I used the product to replace broken glass in a picture frame and thought it was excellent.

Extremely good quality for the price I brought the glass effect look and cannot fault the product in anyway including this company

Quality product that really does look like glass. Online ordering and options menu made it easy to get what I was looking for, when as a first time user, I did not really know what I could get.

Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size for my coffee table top so I have now re-ordered. However delivery and quality were great. Was kept informed about delivery times. Great service.

Used to protect the top of an oak sideboard. I wanted the look of glass with the safety of acrylic. Excellent product. Would definately purchase again.

I used the product to replace glass in a cabinet door and it woks well I would recommend this product to anyone.

Cast acrylic sheet used in double sided frame to display 250 year old double sided map.It fitted the frame and looks like real glass. - many thanks

Product works perfectly to replace the glass in a large picture frame (50cm square). Fit was very good. Delivery took a few days,

I used the sheets of acrylic to replace glass in three photograph frames. They are far more safe for children to have around.

The Glass "Look" Cast Acrylic Sheets I ordered was cut exact to my measurements. The Acrylic was packaged well and it still had the protective film on front and back. The 50mm holes I asked for was cut perfect. I will definitely order from SimplyPlastics again. Cheers.

Delighted, safely packed, well protected surfaces, accurately cut to size, just what I needed for secondary double glazing

I used it to replace an existing glass window in a garage where there was limited access. Normal glass would have been too fragile - and I was unable to remove or replace the frame/surround (again due to access)

Bought this as an alternative to a glass splashback behind a sink. The glass look was much better than I expected. I'd recommend this product and without a doubt use it, and Simply Plastics again.

Very pleased with product. Used as a top for a bathroom shelve. Needed something to stop paintwork getting dirty and this was perfect.

The 5mm sheet looked just like glass and was very sturdy.With polished edges and slightly radiused corners it looks like a quality item.

I bought to cover my menü board in my takeaway. They looks just like real glass and fit perfectly on my menü. Nice job.

Great product, looks just like glass. We purchased a Rattan Sofa set with a coffee table. The Sofa was lovely, however the coffee table had a cheap looking clear flexible sheet to protect the rattan. Glass was out of the question as it was far to expensive, so opted for the 5mm glass look acrylic at a fraction of the cost of glass. Looks amazing, well impressed.

I used it for photo display in a retail area. Well cut product. Looks smart. Good delivery times.

Used the product to make a bookcase, it was excellent and I would certainly recommend it to friends and family

I bought the acrylic sheet to protect my chest of draws and bedside cabinets, they look great, I am very pleased with them and yes I would recommend this product and company

Excellent product ..would recommend

Used this for a window in the garage. Great price and brilliant quality looks amazing.

I've use it to display my Lego in the cabinet. That's what I want and it's good quality. I will recommend to others.

Used as glass for garden lamp post

I broke the glass top on a small garden table. A new toughened glass one was going to cost £84 from the manufacturer, So I though I would try this product. The table tapers from one side to the other & has scalloped edges so I had to cut it to the correct shape. It cut easily with a Jig saw. I then sanded it to get it smooth & finished it with fine wet & dry. The result is very good. It doesn't clatter like the glass top, but the glass look edges look really nice. I just hope that doesn't scratch too easily. Fingers crossed !!

Replaced broken glass In picture frame , really pleased with product would definitely use again.

A replacement for a glass top garden table top. Good product looks like the glass it is replacing

I am currently building a box type unit, with sliding front panels.The unit when finished, will sit on top of my aquarium, [Paludarium style for tall plants, that will grow in water below in the aquarium. Some plants like a humid atmosphere. I shall be using fish safe aquarium sealant in the build! Glass "Look" Cast Acrylic Sheet is highly recommended, it is a fine product!

Replaced glass in two large pictures broken in house move. Brilliant just like glass but lighter, amazing

Love this stuff. Used it to replace the glass in a fire screen over an embroidered panel. Looks great and won't break like the glass did. Would certainly recommend it.

Used this to protect the top of some oak furniture, excellent product looks the same as a glass top but cheaper and safer, excellent service from Simplyplastics

Great quality and arrived quickly. Perfect for protecting a new set of oak bedroom drawers that I recently purchased.

I built a tarantula tank with this product looks like real glass would recommend it

Excellent quality and just what I need to protect my succulent plants from heavy rain and frost in winter, whilst still allowing them daylight and fresh air. Not as fragile as glass and very robust. Great!

Great quality product. I am using the three small pieces to cover curiosity boxes to be hung on a wall! Can highly recommend both product and company.

I wanted a safe alternative to glass for my summerhouse, as the grandchildren play in the garden. The 3mm clear acrylic has proved to be an excellent choice. I was pleased by the packaging, the accuracy of the cut to my specification and the fast delivery. I would have no hesitation in recommending this product.

The product was used to replace broken glass on a bedside cupboard , this it did very well the quality is good and it was cut to the correct size as requested . Thank you for a good service.

Excellent product, very good service.

I used 5mm in quite large sheets in a new greenhouse I built. It looks and feels fantastic. I built the frame first and sent exact measurements which were delivered all different and cut exactly. A great service for a great product, less breakable than glass and about the same price. Well done simply Plastics!!

Used this to cover my coffee table. It was a perfect fit, was as described and looks just like glass. Arrived promptly, would definitely recommend

Used product as extra security to cover a bulls eye pane of glass in a front door. Delivered in good time and acrylic nicely rounded at corners with smooth edges and holes neatly drilled. Very pleased with purchase, as good if not better than glass.

Used to replace 2 broken panes in Greenhouse. Perfect size and it looks just like glass. First Class.

Bought 3 pieces of Glass Look Acrylic to use in an IKEA Detolf display cabinet and to be honest they look even better than the glass shelves that are supplied with the shelf. The green edging looks very good and is perfectly smooth with no marks where the piece has been cut to size. Overall extremely impressed with the product and would recommend and definitely use again. Many Thanks, Mark

Great product and prompt delivery.

What I received was a bit more frosted and more green than the photo - which appears more clear with exception of the edges. However, they were exactly what I wanted, good quality, packaged securely, highly recommended!

Product is first (g)class, exact to size specified, polished edges and of good quality. Packaging was also of high quality however you missed out of the 5 star review as it did take a few more days to arrive than expected - you should ensure that it is clear on the website around delivery times to help guide customer expectations. That said, I am very happy with the product. :)

Bought slim piece of plastic, with screw holes in corners, to attach to a door and prevent our pupy from scratching off the paint. Makes a great scratch guard.

Product arrived slightly later than stated but happy with condition on arrival . Fitted quite well into shed window frame and doing it's job. Would go for thinner measurements next time! Value for money.Thanks.

I had 12 acrylic sheets cut for an artwork project for young people in NHS care. Not only was the product exactly what I needed, and well finished, but this company went out of their way to ensure that the squares were delivered to me in time after a hold up due to Bank Holidays. Thank you.

I bought this sheeting for my summer house windows. The company were very professional and on time with delivery. The product was in my opinion outstanding, and I will recommend the product and company to my friends.

my fridges shelf broke. i ordered an acrylic sheet cut to measure and the quality is very good. customer service was also good. overall i am very satisfied

Used the product to put a glass effect on bedside cabinets and chest of drawers - look fab - very helpful when ordering and prompt reliable service

The product was ordered to make a display case for a large model aircraft . The quality and finish of the product was first class , as was the service received. The product was joined together to make the case using Tensol 12 adhesive , an excellent way to join pieces of acrylic together.The finished item has the look and feel of real glass , superb.

Purchased clear plastic to repair broken window in children's playhouse. Arrived promptly and worked a treat. Much stronger than the original. Great service all round thanks

A woodcraft project with a large badge inserted covered with the plastic for protection. A good project would recommend it to others.

I bought the glass effect acrylic to put on top of a vintage steamer trunk to make it into a coffee table. It has worked perfectly and has enhanced the final piece beautifully. I drilled the holes I need in myself, I am not particularly experienced with drill work but it wasn't too hard, just had to work slowly and gently. All in all a fantastic product!

The panel is to be used in our Nursery to protect children's display's. The product is of exceptional quality, far better than I expected. The price was very competitive. It was delivered on time. If we need anything similar in the future we will not hesitate to use SimplyPlastics. Thank you

I have made several orders for Glass Look Acrylic sheets over the last few months. The first one was for a small surface and really as a tester. The result looked fine so two other orders followed. Sheets used as an alternative to glass for tops for bedroom furniture. All surfaces to be covered were carefully measure and sheeting was a good fit. Goods delivered punctually and well packaged.

Ordered a small sheet of acrylic for the top of a small bedside cabinet proved successful, I so ordered a larger sheet for the top of a refurbished chest of drawers. Both very suitable for the purpose used. So far no scuff markets.

Bathroom shelves

Replacement square barometer glass

I make and sell 1/12th scale Contempoary Dolls Houses and Miniatures in which the materials used come under very close inspection. Simply Plastics cutting, profiling and polishing services are 'the icing on the cake' of the excellent produduct range that you'll find on the website. Great product range! Great Service! and PDQ too! A big thank you well deserved.

Used instead of glass to cover small bedside table. Couldn't fault the purchase really, albeit cost including carriage was a bit more than I was expecting. Neverthetheless will be ordering a larger size for another piece of bedroom furniture which reflects level of satisfaction.

Closing piece on an outdoor enclosure for a clock. I would use a 5mm thickness section next time but that is only because of the loading I gave to securing screws.

I recently purchased The Glass Look Acrylic sheet and found it to be absolutey brilliant as have all my purchases from Simply Plastics with an excellent delivery service as well

I used them to replace a broken pane in the shed and cold frame. A stars all round.

Used this product to go on the top of my daughters bedside table that I renovated, it's fantastic really looks like glass very happy, plus quick fast fuss free service!

I used the product to fix on to the back of my parrots' cages to minimize food spillage. It works very well, almost unnoticeable and also allows their UV light to shine unimpeded into their cages. I am well pleased.

I bought this product to use as double glazing to my bathroom. It works great. Stops all the drafts and noise. Think I may buy more for the rest of the house. Great product, and fast delivery. Would defiantly recommend this company.

Great product, excellent service and a reasonable price. Second time we've used Simply Plastics and would certainly recommend them.

Using our glass 'look' acrylic sheet to protect our white dining table. Looks just like the real thing, but easier to move and cheaper. Great finish, no more unsightly protective table cloths that still manage to attract stubborn stains - amazing. Would definitely recommend.

Used in my greenhouse. Product was first class and easier to install than glass.

Constructed a protection box for a TV set in a sheltered housing unit. Happy to find a supplier who will deal in small quantities cut to size. Product was fine, no problems and the client was pleased with the end result. Hard to find any fault.

I bought the glass-look perspex to sit under a fish tank, to protect the pine unit the tank sat on from water marks or denting from the weight of the tank. I am delighted with the product. Great quality and great service.

Substitute for glass shelving in a bathroom cabinet. It worked very well, I was delighted with the product
