We supply sheets and cut to size panels on:
Perspex clear acrylic.
Displays UK offer Perspex and Altuglas clear acrylic in both full sheet forms and as a cut to size service. Both Perspex and Altuglas clear acrylic is a premium grade acrylic made from pure monomer (not cheaper recycled acrylic). As such both really are premium materials for fabrication. Premium clear acrylic has excellent light transmission - at 92% transmission rates, its actually clearer than glass. It has no colour bias - great for top end art galleries/exhibitions, museums displays, engineering projects, Point of Purchase Displays (POP/POS), Signage, acrylic furniture, model and display cases etc. Our Premium range of acrylics come with a full 10 year warranty. Even after 10 years of full on outdoor light and UV exposure, our premium acrylics will still transmit 85% of light. We have invested heavily in the very latest diamond polishing equipment. Premium acrylic can be edge polished to give full 92% light transmission like no other clear material. There really is nothing like the sparkly light refraction that can be achieved with a highly polished and buffed piece of premium acrylic from Displays UK. Premium Acrylic has 5x the impact strength of glass.
Whilst we sell Premium acrylic for a point of sale fabrication, engineering projects, acrylic art etc, we also recognise the need for cheaper, less expensive versions to be available for simpler low cost projects, ie replacement shed windows, temporary glazing, secondary double glazing etc. We offer our own DUK brand - very competitively priced acrylic sheet and cut to size service. Please contact us for quotes on custom sizes, our pre-cut perspex and acrylic panels, or help and advice.

Clear Acrylic is available from Displays UK as full sheets or smaller cut to size panels.
Perspex Blocks - Clear Acrylic
Perspex Clear Acrylic is available as blocks - often just known as Perspex Blocks or 'Perspex Tombstones'. Perspex blocks are thick blocks of premium monomer acrylic, usually with a highly polished edge (diamond polished edge), and buffed to sparkle. Photo quality graphics are usually reverse mounted to the back of the block. Because of their fabulous transparent qualities, and high end feel they are great for awards trophies, retail brand displays etc. Please see our ecommerce section of the website for full details.
