Acrylic playhouse glazing is incredibly easy to fit as it is both lightweight and flexible. At seventeen times better at resisting impact than a normal glass acrylic sheet, our alternative is much safer, and longer-lasting for all those windy nights, or play-fighting accidents. 

As well as being durable and safe, both our clear Perspex acrylic and clear polycarbonate options are weatherproof and UV resistant. This means that you can easily keep toys and play equipment in the playhouse without having to worry about the elements getting in, or animals setting up home.

Details

When designing a playhouse, making sure that every aspect is safe, and durable is paramount. So whether you’re replacing the windows, or building from scratch, our clear acrylic or polycarbonate sheets make a brilliant addition to creating a safe alternative to glass.  

Whether you’re building your own playhouse and require windows to fit pre-made frames or you’re fitting plastic window panes to a playhouse that you bought, we can provide acrylic cut to your precise dimensions, making the windows simple and safe to fit. 

What we do recommend though, is that if buying our windows to fit a playhouse from a retailer, the retailers are unlikely to have plastic window panes, or the necessary routing needed to fit glazing into the windows. Fortunately, our acrylic panes can be easily attached with solvent-based adhesives. We recommend allowing for a little extra material all-around your measurements when ordering so that the windows can be securely glued in place. 

As well as being practical, fitting plastic glazing into your playhouse windows extends its life too. Kids will be happy to play out in it long into autumn as their playhouse will be draft-free. Plus when the winter months roll in, the playhouse will be perfect to use for storage until next spring, since it is well protected.  

Our plastic windows are also ideal for replacing shed windows or greenhouse panels.

Up to 10 times stronger than glass our clear Perspex® acrylic sheets don’t show any sign of ageing with continual use, meaning you can expect at least 20 years of use from your clear acrylic sheet without showing signs of deterioration.

Further to this, Clear Perspex® Acrylic sheeting also provides up to 92% light transmission, higher than most types of glass, so becomes a preferable option to glass for use in windows or roofing.

Clear polycarbonate sheeting on the other hand is an ultra-tough, versatile material with a wide range of possible uses, from secondary glazing to riot shields, to external panels. This superior strong material can be purchased in varying thicknesses to provide further levels of insulation for your playhouse plastic. Two hundred times stronger than glass, our polycarbonate replacement playhouse windows alternative is available as a durable, safer option for replacing the glass.

Lastly, high-impact polystyrene (HIP) is the cheaper option and much like polycarbonate is designed for functions that require enhanced impact resistance ideal for use as a playhouse windows alternative.

However, when compared to the other two sheetings, HIP sheets do have a noticeable optical difference often showing vertical lines distorting light slightly which is worth considering if you are aiming for total clear optics. For this reason, our polycarbonate or clear acrylic sheets are perfect for playhouse window replacements, though HIPs is a great alternative if optics are not of concern.

All three of our options as an alternative to playhouse window panels are lightweight and easier to install than traditional glass. While glass would normally deteriorate as a playhouse windows pane, either by losing transparency or warping, the long-lasting consistency of clear acrylic, polycarbonate, or HIP panels makes them an easy replacement, repurposing your playhouse plastic windows and giving the whole feature a second wind.

We are able to provide HIPS, clear acrylic, or polycarbonate exactly to your specifications and measurements, as well as adding options for customization should you require. We have also constructed a helpful guide to assist you with your installation.

Key Features

Excellent Clarity

Clear Perspex® acrylic, polycarbonate, and high-impact polystyrene sheets give excellent optical clarity, ranging up to 92% light transmission, higher than most types of glass, making our clear plastic sheets an advantageous option for use in windows or as a skylight. 

Versatile

Clear Perspex® acrylic sheets are incredibly durable, so are often used as a secondary glazing alternative to glass, as it is resistant to impact and shatterproof, making them a safer option. Further, clear plastic sheets are particularly useful for sheds and around the home with children and pets.

Comparably, our polycarbonate is 300 hundred times stronger than glass and 30 times stronger than our Perspex® acrylic sheets, as well as being shatter-resistant. You can expect at least 20 years of continued use from these long-lasting panels without showing signs of deterioration.

Weather Resistant

Clear acrylic sheeting is UV and weather-resistant, as well as being resistant to prolonged exposure to sunlight. In addition, clear acrylic sheets are also resistant to most chemicals and have a low moisture absorption rate, so clear plastic sheets are useful for a host of different environments and are perfect for outdoor applications.

Durable

With a higher impact tolerance to acrylic sheeting, clear polycarbonate sheets make a stronger, long-lasting alternative to both acrylic and glass. At its thickest point polycarbonate is also resistant to bullets, and its brake form is a tenth of an inch thick.

Malleable

Clear cast Perspex® acrylic sheeting is easy to fabricate and can be cut, drilled and shaped to any requirements, so it’s a flexible material to work with. The cut surfaces can be polished and sanded easily for a more professional finish to your sheeting.

Inexpensive

HIPs works out at one-third of the price of clear acrylic relative to square meter sheets, allowing playhouse windows to become an accessible inexpensive task to complete. 

Maintainable

All of our playhouse plastic options are equally easy to clean, with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth needed to ensure a hygienic finish.
