Tinted Acrylic Sheets
Available in two shades of tint, our tinted acrylic sheets can be cut to size to fit your specific requirements. Whether you are a DIY enthusiast or a professional tradesman, these sheets will be practical for your project.
Our tinted acrylic sheets are ideal for those who want to add a little darkness to their windows and benefit from some more privacy, whilst still providing excellent optical clarity. They are designed to provide an extra layer of protection from minimising light. Light can still pass through these sheets undistorted and you can see clearly distinguished objects behind the sheets. Due to this, tinted sheets are ideal for caravan windows, luxury yachts or even as a motorcycle windshield where you may want to reduce light but see clearly through the sheet.
Our light tint shade has a light transmission of 61%. With its subtle translucent appearance, it allows natural light to pass through whilst creating a soft and inviting ambience. These sheets are ideal for areas where you would like to preserve a sense of openness and still maximise the amount of light a tinted sheet can provide. The dark tint shade has a more bold and dramatic effect. They have a rich deep hue which adds a touch of mystery and intensity to an environment. Only transmitting 41% of light, this choice is ideal for more privacy and a more sophisticated look.
Made of Perspex Acrylic®, tinted sheets benefit from being UV and weather-resistant, making them ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. They also offer exceptional durability, as unlike glass, they are lightweight and more resistant to shattering on impact.
We can provide you with an accurate cut to size sheet of our tinted acrylic with an excellent cutting tolerance of +/- 1mm We also offer cutouts and drilled holes in all of our acrylic sheets for those who may need to fit them around a light switch or run a cable through the sheet.
If you are unsure whether a tinted acrylic sheet is right for your project, or you can't decide between light and dark tint, we recommend that you order samples from us before placing your final order.

Tinted Acrylic is easy for us to cut and drill to your requirements. The cut surfaces can be polished and sanded easily for a more professional finish to your sheeting.
Ten times stronger than glass, our smoked-look acrylic sheets are shatter resistant which makes them a longer-lasting option than glass. They are also much less prone to discolouration.
With both UV and weather resistance, the sheets can withstand the most severe weather conditions, making them fantastic alternatives to glass windows.

Frequently Asked Questions for Tinted Acrylic Sheets
What’s the difference between Perspex® and acrylic?
Perspex® is a brand of acrylic plastic. They are the same.
Can I get samples of your tinted acrylic?
You can request samples of any of our products: When on the store page for the material you are interested in, first select the thickness you want, then click the "Order Sample" icon at the top of the page. This will add one sample unit to the shopping cart. Make sure to check your shopping cart before checking out.
Acrylic samples come as 10cm squares and are intended to let you see the colour or finish in real life. For coloured acrylic, sometimes we won't have sample stock of the exact thickness you ask for, but you'll still get the right colours. Clear Acrylic and Tinted samples will always be the correct thickness as the thickness can be important for the properties of the product.
How much light passes through tinted acrylic sheets?
Light Tint provides up to 61% of light transmission and Dark Tint lets in up to 41% of light transmission.
Do I need polished edges?
If your item is going to be on display and is not going to be set into a frame, we recommend opting for polished edges when possible. This will leave the edges as smooth and transparent as the surface. Without this, your item may have slightly visible tool marks along the cut surfaces. This is particularly important for items that will be handled, as the edges would otherwise be rough. The effect of a polished edge will be more visible on thicker sheets of acrylic.
Is tinted acrylic Perspex® food safe?
Perspex® Acrylic Sheets comply with current EU and American (FDA) food contact regulations.
Is acrylic Perspex® heat resistant?
Perspex® sheets will melt at high temperatures or from exposure to direct flames. The melting point for Acrylic Perspex® is 80̊C so they cannot withstand extreme temperatures.
Is Cut My able to fabricate my product?
We can cut to various sizes and shapes out of flat sheets in a range of thicknesses.
How can I clean tinted Perspex® acrylic?
Keeping your Acrylic Perspex® clean and hygienic is easy to maintain, as all that is required is warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth. Please avoid using abrasive cleaners or materials, as these can scratch the surface of the material.
How resistant to scratching are your acrylic sheets?
Acrylic is not as scratch resistant as a similar panel of glass, but light surface marks can be more easily buffed out from acrylic with a plastic polish.
