We supply plastic materials for primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities. Strong, durable and cost-effective, plastic is ideally suited to a wide range of uses within the education sector. Its versatility means it often forms part of the physical environment, in addition to playing a key role within a variety of curriculum subjects, such as Design & Technology, Art, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
As is the case with other public spaces, acrylic is often the first choice for signage and display. Thanks to its strength and impact resistance, it is also a popular alternative to traditional glass glazing. Acrylic sheets are more tolerant to pressure than panes of glass, which means they are more likely to flex than break or shatter – an important Health & Safety consideration for busy, high-footfall environments such as education.
However, the versatility and relative low cost of acrylic make it a popular choice for classroom/lecture teaching and learning materials too. For example, Design & Technology workshops are often equipped with table saws, laser cutting machines and vacuum-forming machines, all of which are used to cut and manipulate a range of plastic materials. Plastic also plays a vital role in a variety of science experiments. More specifically, cast acrylics are ideally suited for prize-giving awards and trophies.
