Polycarbonate clear plastic sheet is an extremely versatile and strong material with a high resistance to impact. It's usually chosen over other forms of plastic sheeting because of its strength and resistance to impact. 

Although easy to fabricate, unlike cast and extruded acrylic sheet material, the edges of polycarbonate cannot be polished.

Key features:

  • Impact resistance
  • High strength
  • Excellent optical clarity
  • Hard wearing
  • Weather resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Resistant to high temperatures (UK class 1 fire rating)
  • Noise reduction/sound insulation
  • Easy to cut and machine
  • Recyclable

Typical applications:

  • Glazing
  • Sky lights
  • Construction

  • Security components
  • Signage
  • Vending machines
  • Street furniture
  • Machine guards
  • Lighting
  • Roof domes

Detailed description:

Impact resistance

Polycarbonate sheet has over 200 times the strength of glass while being half the weight. It's virtually unbreakable. The strength and impact resistance of the material makes it suitable for applications where safety and security is required.

Fire resistance

With an excellent UK class 1 fire rating, polycarbonate is often used in public buildings.

Weather resistant

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

David 19/05/2017 22:04:00

Purchased 3 sheets of made to measure polycarbonate sheets as replacement for some broken glass in my greenhouse, due to bad football shooting practice from my son. Easy to order on line, well packaged and would definitely recommend.

David 18/05/2017 20:50:45

Great Product & Service Purchased 3x Sheets of Clear Polycarbonate (5mm) To replace glass shelves in my elderly mothers Fridge & Freezer - Far stronger more durable and cheaper than replacing the glass which repeatedly broke every time we defrosted ! Cut to the exact size requested - Perfect - Thank you

Patrick 18/05/2017 20:47:53

Good product / very happy with transaction / used for shed windows to replace the glass ones

Anthony Walker 08/05/2017 20:05:24

Stable window.

pwm 28/04/2017 07:57:34

Used to cover an occasional hardwood table much u for food and drink to avoid the need for mats and coasters.

Julia 26/04/2017 22:28:29

We drilled a few holes in it and it has made a perfect lid to the fish tank. 1/3 of the price. our lighting sits on top so this allows a secure cover stoping the shrimp escaping. A normal lid was allowing them to escape. Perfect measurements. Very happy. No more lost shrimp.

P Morris 24/04/2017 08:13:54

Plastic inserts for door labels. Product was exactly what we were looking for and cut to exact size, very pleased with item and service.

Greenhouse glass , excellent product would highly recommend ( needed thicker glass for greenhouse) Quick delivery and reasonable price and packaged well would use again

Glenn 28/03/2017 19:51:35

I used this polycarbonate sheet to make a rear windscreen for my porsche 911 replica kit car, cut great with tin snips, very flexible to bend to shape but solid when bent and fitted. Bit of a nightmare job but saved me a fortune and does the job great. Only downside is it does scratch easily but can be lacquered to cover over.

Gary Thirlwell 27/03/2017 19:05:50

4mm polycarbonate sheet, arrived cut to size, used it for a shed window. It came well packaged and scratch free.

Phil 19/03/2017 18:43:19

Used to replace panels in greenhouse roof. Already have one panel installed and very happy with light transfer and strength, also much easier and safer than replacing glass panels.

John Whalley 21/02/2017 08:12:50

For greenhouse

Paul 09/01/2017 16:25:12

10mm sheet arrived well packed, and was very accurately but to size. It was for a TV cabinet in a care home, to protect the television from damage. The previous cabinet had used only 6mm thick sheet, which did in fact break after a couple of years. I'm sure the extra thickness will be more than enough this time!

Peter 02/01/2017 20:04:46

I wanted to protect the windward side of an outside shelf unit that I had built. The shet arrived as promised and fits a treat. Time will tell about its robustness and uv capabilities!

Michael Kibbin 26/12/2016 19:35:05

Just what I needed at the right price and delivered very quickly.

Vic Rus 16/12/2016 22:13:48

I used the polycarbonate sheet to repair / replace glass on my wife's cold frame. Now I've got another good-boy badge, whoopee! I selected the material and gave the size, placed my order via Paypal and within a couple of working days it was here, using these most reliable trades via the internet makes such sense. There's is a specialist service and I did shop around and Simply Plastics provided a competitive price and very good service.

Dave Goulder 16/12/2016 21:09:40

Extended shelter walls to ground level. Can't fault the quality - excellent. I would recommend it to others without question.

Michael Harwood 15/12/2016 20:28:12

Purchased small sheet of 5mm poly to fit a security light, in the absence of suitable glass. Helpful advice and quick delivery of quality product. Fingers crossed it's resistant to heat from a halogen bulb.

John Clarke 14/12/2016 23:46:13

Wendy 26/11/2016 23:27:00

Exactly what I wanted. Cut to just the right size. I'm using it in my die cutting machine as the plastic one that comes with the product warps and replacements cost 5 times as much a a sheet of polycarbonate.

Wendy 22/11/2016 22:04:27

Len Billington 31/08/2016 17:13:43

Clive 22/08/2016 19:53:59

Ken Richman 25/07/2016 19:54:16

Bought for shed window replacement. Seems tougher than original acrylic sheet . Will have to see if it survives multiple football strikes.

Dave palmer 18/07/2016 20:12:06

Made a couple of winglets/ deflectors for my BMW 1150GSA, copied the basic design that you can but for £50, this way it only cost £6 and I have enough for another set. Can be bent cold but I heated it to make it easier, very pleased with the result

Barry 13/07/2016 00:43:16

Glazing purposes, great product, fast service, just what I ordered!!

Mike Young 28/06/2016 11:54:19

Bought the product to pin art paper to, whilst projecting an image through it enabling me to have a solid surface to draw on. Works perfectly, and material was good quality, and much cheaper than other sites I looked at. Thanks also for the very quick service.

John Yates 31/03/2016 07:29:06

The 1mm polycarbonate sheet was selected as a durable backing for a prototype automatic lap timing transponder loop for under carpet placement, this has proven to be successful after its first use at my local model car racing club. The material was delivered very well packaged and was received in excellent condition.

PRK 14/03/2016 19:11:13

Small sheet cut to size to form a gasket when installing outside light. Just the job!

John57 09/02/2016 18:16:45

We had just moved in to a new property. Purchased a new greenhouse with horticultural glass, within the week, high winds had blown out 4 panels. I recalled that the person who installed the greenhouse mentioned we may have been better to order the extra toughened glass or the polycarbonate panes. So I went online, having used this company previously, and ordered 4 panes of polycarbonate. Simple process, you measure the size required, then input it on the order form. The panes arrived promptly, installed them in minutes. However, another bout of high winds ( N. Scotland ) took out 2 of my replacement panes, but the good news was they did not break like the glass panels. I have since put more glass clips in, and the greenhouse has remained in tact through higher winds than had damaged it before. In summary, easy to order, and better than the original glass.

Tracey Gandar 08/02/2016 22:04:01

Used this product after a panel of glass in our greenhouse broke. It was easy to fit, strong and has withstood the incredibly rough weather this winter. Have recommended to several friends and recommended using simply plastics. We were kept informed of date of delivery etc., and all information given was accurate. Will definitely be replacing the rest of the glass as and when we need to.

Bob Crank 08/02/2016 21:47:51

I used this product for the roof and side widows for a greehouse. I was really impressed with the quality and price which was very good. Excellent value for money. This company will be my first port of call should I need any more.

Mr Shields 17/06/2015 08:37:44

Ordered several panels of polybarbonate to replace damaged windows in our summer house. Very easy order process, prompt delivery and suitable packaging. Will recommend to friends.
