What are these Protective Screens made of?
The panels are available in either clear Polycarbonate or Acrylic plastic. Both of these materials are hi grade industrial plastics that are as clear as glass. Polycarbonate and Acrylic look exactly the same but have different properties.
Can these screens be broken?
Polycarbonate and Acrylic (plexiglass) are very strong materials and are impact resistant. Under extreme force, it is possible to crack Acrylic panels, however Polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable.
What thickness are they, are these screens heavy?
Polycarbonate and Acrylic screens are half the weight of glass at the same thickness. A standard pane of glass is typically 3mm thick. We have polycarbonate and acrylic sheet available in a variety of thicknesses from 2mm to 6mm. The thicker the screen material, the more rigid the screen.
Do you offer a delivery service?
Yes, we offer a Nationwide delivery service using courier transport. This usually operates on a ‘next day’ service, dependent on normal operating conditions, volume of orders, cutting queue etc.
Orders place on a Friday, will be delivered the following Monday. We do not use of our own fleet and hence delivery is subject to a separate cost. We do not place any mark up on delivery. Once we know your location, we ask our courier service to quote us a cost for delivery. This is the delivery cost we quote to you.
Can these Protective Screens be cleaned?
Polycarbonate and Acrylic screens should only be cleaned using a mild soapy lukewarm water solution. Use a lint free and non abrasive cloth. NEVER use chemicals, sprays, polishes, wax or abrasive cleaners on Polycarbonate and Acrylic sheets as these can scratch and scorch or stain the sheets.
Do you only have clear screens available?
Polycarbonate and Acrylic screens are clear like glass. We also supply a ribbed, structured sheet called Multiwall Polycarbonate, which you can see through but it is not clear like glass (see pic below).
This is available in 10mm, 16mm and 25mm large sheets. We also have pvc edge trims available in white or brown.
