This product was needed to replace an in built light diffuser. We ordered the product with specific measurements and on delivery we’re not disappointed. Would use this company again,

Item arrived quickly and fit as requested many thanks

Easy to order, quick to deliver, packaged well and cut perfectly.

The sheet I brought was for a cooker hood light. It defuses the light from two bulbs well. Item was well packed and not marked on delivery. The plastic was supplied to the correct ordered size. Drilled holes in it using a slow speed drill & a piece of wood on the reverse side. I would use the company again

Use it to replace some damage garage windows. The cuts was accurate and the quality better than the existing. Happy with purchase, quality product, well wrapped and protected, fast delivery services. Thank you.

Used for defuser for led strip lights

I used this product as a diffuser for a string of LED’s, worked really well and easy to work with, very tough. I would by this again for my next project.

Top quality product and service esp as the turnaround times have improved. Unfortunately prices have risen due to the virus I understand.

I needed to replace the plastic sheets on my double garage doors. They were cracked and split . I had 4 pieces cut to size by Simply Plastics They fitted perfectly and the quality was of a higher standard than those fitted by the garage door supplier. They were also less expensive than the replacements suggested by the supplier. I would use Simply plastics again .

Fast, efficent and value for money. They have even reduced the order to delivery time. All 5stars.

Used this to replace light covers in a paint booth Cut to size very accurately Arrived on time and very well packed Thanks

Good quality, good service, good delivery, good value. All 5 stars. What more could you ask for. I have used simply plastics regularly for over a year and found them an excellent company to deal with.

As a manufacturer we require an number of things from a supplier including accuracy of product size, consistency of the product, performance you can rely on, speed of turnaround and good customer service being able to speak to somebody about any issue or about the product. I am happy to report Simplyplastics meet or exceed all those requirements.

We have a period property with single glazed windows to the bathroom and wc that have small panes of glass. Cut to size Prismatic polycarbonate sheet fixed internally in front of the glass and sealed with a water clear silicone at the edges insulates the windows, looks great, the windows can be opened and provides complete privacy.

To diffuse LED lighting. Item just as described and just as the spec sheet. Only thing I can think of is you could have had them in the post sooner and the survey after rather than before I received them. Having said that I will definately be ordering again in the future. If you could improve your turnaround time I would give 5 stars instead of 4.

I used this in my shop as the last cover shattered, this seems much better quality... very pleased with this :)

Used the product as a panel in a suspended ceiling beneath a fluorescent light within a shower room. Does the job perfectly and Simply Plastics were very helpful as I needed a sheet customised to size containing my particular pattern of pre-drilled holes. Excellent service. Thank you

good service , very helpful

Delivered on time and a very good product.

used to replace vandilised light diffusers

to replace old acrylics

The polycarbonate fitted perfectly - would certainly recommend and use your company in the future.
