Acrylic Table Top Details
We can supply you with a cut to size Acrylic to use as either a clear table protector for your current table or as a Table Top Replacement. Our coloured options are perfect for giving worn tables a new lease of life and will hide any imperfections on the existing table.
Our Acrylic Sheets Table Tops are ten times stronger than glass, meaning they are much less likely to break if something is dropped on them which is ideal for homes with high footfall, children and pets. Acrylic Table Tops can give you the reassurance that your table will safely last the test of time.
Perspex® Acrylic is UV and weather resistant, so it's perfect for outdoor furniture as well as your indoor tables. For your peace of mind, Perspex® International also offers a 10-year guarantee on the outdoor ageing behaviour of both their Clear Acrylic Sheets and Coloured Acrylic Sheets. To find out more, please take a look at the Perspex® 10-year guarantee.
For garden table tops we can add a parsol hole in the centre. Simply choose "Shape" in the "Parasole Hole" option above and add a circle to the centre of the table.
Clear Acrylic Table Top Protector
There is nothing worse than buying a beautiful table, for the top to be ruined by scratches, stains and damage caused by spills! Our table tops cut-to-size are popular as discrete (or bold, depending on your choosing!) plastic sheet protectors which can be placed on top of your table to protect it from damage.
If the edges of your table are going to be on show, we suggest that you get polished edges of your tabletop for a more attractive finish. Once the edges are polished, they are as smooth and transparent as the top surface of your acrylic. Sometimes people set their table top within an existing table meaning the edges are concealed like in the image with the yellow table top. In this instance - no polished edges are required.
A popular use for our acrylic table top is protecting or hiding damaged furniture. Your Clear Table Top Protector can be cut to size and placed on top of dressers, chests of drawers, vanities and shelving units to protect the surface of your furniture whilst you can still see the original finish.
Alternatively, if for example, you have white IKEA furniture, you could use our White Perspex® Acrylic to place on top of your IKEA Micke desk or your IKEA Malm dressing table to cover up any makeup marks or other damage that has occurred to the surface. Our Acrylic Sheets are easy to clean and maintain with just a microfibre cloth and some soap - which is perfect for busy households where spillages and drops often happen!
All of our Perspex® made to measure table tops can be cut to size to fit your furniture at a much lower price than other retailers and with long-lasting durability.
Another popular finish for our table tops is our Glass Acrylic Table Top, which gives a glass-like appearance with a green tint. It is just as clear as glass, so you can still see the finish of the original table underneath. With this option, you can enjoy a premium appearance and texture for your table, while also reaping the benefits of Acrylic, including UV resistance. This means that you can place your table in a sunny area without worrying about it yellowing over time. Our glass look acrylic is created to replicate the look of real glass, adding a green tint to the sheets, only fully visible when looking directly at the edges. We suggest ordering a sample if you would like to make sure you are happy with the finish.
If you would like to add some style and elegance to your table top protector, we can also supply Acrylic Mirrored Sheets in a variety of mirrored colours. These look especially nice on smaller pieces of furniture such as a coffee table or a vanity topping
For Acrylic Table Top Protectors, we also recommend adding on some self-adhesive plastic buffer dot sheets to your order. You can attach these to the underside corners of your Acrylic Sheet to provide a sturdy, non-slip base. They offer soft cushioning between surfaces which makes them a great accessory to prevent your surfaces from getting scratched. They’re also an effective way to absorb shock and impact.
Acrylic Table Top Replacement
If you are looking to replace your table top, you've come to the right place. We provide these in the same variety of finishes including clear, coloured, frosted or mirrored acrylic, all of which can be fully customisable to fit any room or surface.
Perhaps your current table top is broken, or you simply just don't like the finish anymore, then we have plenty of options for Acrylic Table Top Replacements to choose from, which allows you to choose the colour you would like to match your decor.
Our Acrylic as a Table Top Replacement is a great material to use as an alternative to glass, as it is 10x stronger and half the weight. If the edges of your tables are exposed then we recommend that you go for polished edges for a nicer appearance. We can also curve corners, making the table top safe to use anywhere in the home and avoiding those hurtful bumps.
We would recommend a thickness of 5mm or thicker for table top replacements. The thickness you require will depend on the number of supports you have under your table, as well as the positioning of them. If you are unsure, please feel free to contact our customer service team who will be happy to advise you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Perspex® acrylic good to use as a tabletop?
Acrylic tabletop protectors add safety and reassurance that your table will last longer. Acrylic also makes for an ideal surface for tables as it is easy to clean and can be tailored and personalised to fit styles and tastes.
Why would I not just use glass as a clear table protector?
Acrylic is cheaper than glass! Our Acrylic table tops also give ten times the impact resistance of glass so they are much less likely to shatter. This means that even with small children or pets, our sheets are safer to use if accidents do happen.
How do you protect an acrylic tabletop?
Once the edges are polished they are as smooth and transparent as the surface of the tabletop. If the table top is to be set within an existing table and the edges are concealed, then no other polishing is required. Perspex® tabletop sheets are also easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish. You can also polish them to buff out any scratches.
How do I attach my tabletop protector to my current table?
We can pre-drill your tabletop protector to make installing with screws simpler, but you might want a less permanent solution. You could stick some of our self-adhesive rubber ‘feet’ to the underside of the sheet which will help stop the Acrylic from slipping while in use.
Which thickness should I choose for an acrylic table top?
If you are using this as a table top protector, then we recommend a thickness of 3mm/4mm. As a Table Top Replacement, then a thickness of at least 5mm is recommended. This also depends on the number of supports you have under your table. If you are unsure, please contact our customer service team who will be able to advise you.
