Product description

A clear extruded acrylic sheet with a slight matte surface finish on one side to reduce glare and reflection. Suitable for use for applications where high lighting levels can cause distracting reflections.

Anti-glare or Anti reflective acrylic acrylic sheet is a high quality acrylic sheet material with a high level of light transmission. Extruded acrylic is of a slightly lower quality than cast acrylic but its production process is more economical making it a lower cost material to purchase.


The media being framed must be directly behind the picture glass or the slightly matte surface of the anti-reflective acrylic may cause a frosted effect and decrease the detail visible of the artwork.

Key features:

  • Anti-glare surface
  • Excellent thickness tolerance
  • Optical clarity
  • Hard wearing
  • Weather resistant
  • Easy to bend and shape
  • Economical
  • Suitable for vacuum forming
  • Resistance against figure marks

Typical applications:

  • Point of sale
  • Retail display
  • Glazing
  • Picture framing

Detailed description:

Anti-Glare / Anti-Reflective

Produced with a fine matte surface on one side to help avoid glare by reducing reflection.

Excellent thickness tolerance

Extruded acrylic has an excellent thickness tolerance meaning there is little variation in thicknesses within the same sheet of material, thiis is also true of the thickness tolerance between mutliple sheets of material. The thickness tolerance of extruded acrylic sheet is +/- 5% while the thickness tolerance of cast acrylic sheet cab be as high as +/- 15%.

Optical clarity

While not quite as high as the optical clarity of clear cast acrylic sheet, clear extruded sheet still performs very well in this area. The economic cost of extruded acrylic is often required for high volume projects, so unless the highest possible levels of optical clarity are required, then extruded acrylic is an attractive option.

Weather resistant

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


Extruded acrylic sheet is very easy to work with.

Vacuum forming

Extruded acrylic is suitable for vacuum forming making it a popular choice when complex shapes are required.

Production process

Clear extruded acrylic sheet and clear cast acrylic sheet are visually very similar but are two different materials each with advantages and disadvantages and each produced by very different manufacturing processes. Extruded clear acrylic sheet is produced by an extrusion process, acrylic resin pellets are heated to a molten mass which is continuously pushed through a die, the position of which determines the thickness of the sheet produced. Once through the die, the molten mass loses temperature and can be trimmed and cut to the required sheet sizes. The continuos nature of the extruded acrylic production process produces larger batches than that of cast acrylic production making it a more economical material.

Good product for picture frame. Delivery was very fast

New cover for two much-loved pictures. The anti-glare improvement was fantastic - really pleased with the cut-to-measure perspex 'glass'.

The glass was cut according my request and it keeps the reflection at bay. It fit my purpose.

anti-glare acrylic sheet used for picture frame. Excellent condition on arrival, exactly measured, prompt delivery. All good, basically

Replacement for broken glass in a picture frame. Exactly as described and much lighter than glass so easier to hang, and won't break all over the floor if it falls off again! Arrived in good time, well packaged.

I used these sheets with A3 photo frames. The difference compared with traditional glass is huge, just remember to put the sheets the right way round - "rough" side outwards. Packaging etc excellent. Will be buying more.

Used to glaze artwork. Have used this excellent product before .

Fronting large picture frame on brightly lit room very effective anti glare - responsive and affordable service too -must use again

Had these made for some photo frames in the main room which is south facing and very bright - the difference is ridiculously good. The one right by the window does get a dull glare when the sun is out but that is leagues better than the previously installed glass. I will definitely be buying more, thanks!

I ordered this product for a large picture frame to replace my clear acrylic to anti glare. I received it in a nice packaging and it was perfectly pre cut. Good quality and good service. Will definitely recommend.

Perfect replacement frame glass !

It does exactly what simply plastics say. The anti glare coating works beautifully and it's virtually unbreakable . Highly recommended.

So easy to order replacement plastic for broken glass frames - wish i'd known about this years ago! Great product, arrived on time no issues. Brilliant!

Bought this for a painting and it has transferred the assistance. Great product and great value.

Excellent product - eliminates glare almost totally

I used it to replace the glass in a picture frame for a print I had made of my son and his wife from their wedding day. Works an absolute treat, virtually complete removes reflection when standing in front of it in a well lit room. I'll definitely do it again. Highly recommended.

I had someone elses plastic to start, but a phone call rectified this and the required plastic was with me in next 2 days. Very impressed with their after customer service.

Picture frame glass Excellent service perfect product

I ordered 2mm anti-glare extruded acrylic sheet to replace the glass belonging to a picture in a large frame. The glass had cracked in transit and I wanted to replace it with something lighter and more robust. The clear acrylic sheet was ideal and the anti-glare finish makes the picture much easier to view in a well lit room.

Fit for purpose. Good price and good support.

I bought this just to test it if would work and cut down the glare on my TV, worked brilliantly. I jus had to discover a way of fixing it to the screen, double sided tape worked well.

Anti-glare plastic for picture frame is just what I was after. Made to measure, it arrived quickly, was great quality at a good cost. Very pleased.

We ordered this sheet to complete an outdoor TV Box The anti-glare Matt finish works really well if you get the screen of the Tv as close to the acrylic as possible, Having bought purpose built out door Tv enclosures in the past this time we built one & the result is a much better finish & visually a much better picture when outdoors & it was half the price 👍 We won’t be hesitating to do it again.

Used this to protect the surface of a valuable stone table. Not wishing to damage the stone through spilling wine etc, I decided I wanted a clear, but anti-glare protective plastic. The sheet, some 3 metres by 2 metres came very well wrapped and protected. It was cut to the exact size including perfect rounding of corners. A great product and a decent price. All round good experience and would not hesitate to use this company again in the future.

Excellent product, used it in a photo frame, just as good as glass and cheaper

Used for picture to reduce glare,worked well. Delivery on time, dimensions spot on Would recommend this site to others.

Ordered to replace glass in IKEA ribba frame Works perfect

Used to replace damaged glass in large picture frame. Excellent, very pleased with the service and the product.

Eliminated the reflected glare from a framed photograph in a corridor. Brilliant. Problem sorted 👍

I have a cork board on which a number of historic family photos of kids and grandkids had been posted over the years. Most had started to curl, so I thought it would be good to protect them and flatten them out with a sheet of acrylic fitted on top. SimplyPlastics cut the piece I wanted exactly to size, and I was able to fit it on top of my pictures very easily. Very happy with the result.

Sheet of Anti Glare Acrylic for outdoor picture frame. Quick delivery, reasonably priced.

Perfect for framing a very large tapestry. I really won't have fancied my chances with a thin sheet of glass this big. Sheet was very well packed and protected.

Used this for some high quality photographic prints. The prints finish made them look like fine watercolour paintings which was spoiled by the normal clear plastic that came with the frame. Changing to these anti-glare sheets allowed that watercolour finish to be what you see and the acrylic sheet to appear invisible. Very happy with the final result and have recommended your product to my photographer son.

quick delivery, good quality products.

Just what we needed picture looked like a mirror prior to using the anti-glare acrylic sheet and will be ordering more for other problem pictures. Thank you for the excellent service

Bought for a picture which previously had glass in the frame. Second time I have bought this product. Does what it says on the tin.

I replaced the glass in a picture frame with the anti-glare glass. We can now view the picture from any angle.

Good quality at god price with good service. What more would you ask! Unusually I imagine I used it for protection from cats scratching/destroying the sides of my leather sofa. Bought one to try it out and will buy some more to complete the job!

Old picture frame

Used to replace clear acrylic cover to wall print because of light glare on print. Cured the problem and pleased with result.

I used this in a picture frame. The product was extremely well packaged and arrived very quickly. Customer Services sent me the link to make my purchase as I had trouble using the website. Thank you.

It's a great alternative to expensive and heavy non-reflective glass and came well packaged and undamaged.

i used anti-glare acrylic sheet for a hand crafted diamond painting which was perfect

Anti reflective product for a large picture frame was ordered and the product fits the bill. The description is exactly what it says on the sites description. We would order from Simply Plastics again without hesitation. Delivery was also spot on.

I used this anti-glare acrylic to display some large posters, it works really well and the posters look great.

The 2mm anti-glare sheet is used as a chart table on my boat...it is located directly under the windscreen, where a shiny sheet would cause major visibility issues due to reflected light. It work well. Very happy.

to cover paper maps -- needed anti-glare. The anti-glare helps a lot, it is not perfect but I'm not sure anything would get rid of the glare at a reasonable price as this was. 100% satisfied; let me see how long it lasts as i have only had the panel for 2 weeks.

I purchased this acrylic sheet for a piece of art work I had made, before it was framed. It is the second sheet I have purchased for the same purpose. It arrived well protected and within a week.

Anti glare sheets were an ideal replacement for my two wall prints

Used for framing expensive film poster. Very good quality and have ordered another.

To cover and protect wall mounted photo's. This was my second purchase which shows that I am very satisfied with the product. Service and delivery excellent, thoroughly recommend and will be happy to use this company again.

Used to replace glass in a large Rothko print. Nice and light replacement, perfectly cut to size and well packaged. I opted for the recommended museum glass and the final overall appearance is great.

Used a sheet of 3mm anti-glare acrylic sheet to replace a shiny, warped sheet of perspex in a fairly cheap 800x1000mm picture frame. Worked perfectly - excellent result - the framed print now looks gallery standard.

Anti-glare glass for picture. All fine except they should make clear which is the front and which is the back. If you put it the wrong way round (which I did) it acts as a mirror!

I used this product for framing my artwork. Good quality product that did the job. I certainly would recommend this product to others.

Excellent accurate cut size and packaged well for shipping. Would have appreciated betters comms about delivery as I had to phone twice to see where order was .. so only 4 stars...

I have used Anti-Glare Extruded Acrylic Sheet many times for my framed pictures, as it is clear and lightweight and ideal in bright rooms as the anti-glare reduces reflection. The delivery is great and the staff are very helpful. I would recommend to others.

To display photographs. Sheets arrived promptly and were well wrapped. I will definitely use this company again should the need arise. 10 out of 10.

I used this product as a protection for my mixed media artwork. Would highly recommend this product. This product would be even more useful to me if it can in a thickness thinner than 2mm.

A large display cabinate and replaced 5 large picture frames as normal glass was highly reflective.

I ordered Anti-Glare Extruded Acrylic for my picture frames. This acrylic is fantastic, arrived in A1 condition and I am very pleased with this product. I wanted Acrylic as it is light, won't shatter like normal glass. The anti-glare is a must when in bright rooms or exhibitions, as you want to see the picture clearly.

I bought this acrylic cut to size, to reduce the reflection of light on pictures on a stairwell - it did the job perfectly.

I got this product to stop the daylight glare on my TV screen and this really does help.
