Perspex (also known as acrylic) is a type of plastic that softens when heated, this allows it to be easily made into a variety of shapes. Perspex is transparent and can be used for many different applications.
The price of perspex varies and depends on the size, thickness and quality of the material. Perspex is cheaper than glass and therefore a good glass substitute. Untreated, the average prices of perspex per square meter are the following:
- 3 mm thickness £40 per m2
- 5 mm thickness £60 per m2
- 8 mm thickness £80 per m2
Thicknesses of perspex
Perspex can have various thicknesses, a limited thickness will quickly fall into the same price range as double glazing. The thicker the perspex, the higher the price will be. Sheets with a thickness of 2 millimeters are soon strong enough.
Perspex with a thickness up to 3 millimeters is easily bendable and is widely used in various applications. The thicker the perspex is, the more solid it will be. Of course, which thickness is best to use depends entirely on the size and function of the sheet.
