Plastic Sheets, Perspex and more
Polycarbonate SheetsPolycarbonate is the strongest of plastics with an impact resistance 200 times that of the equivalent thickness of non toughened glass. Being light in weight it is an ideal material for roofing & glazing applications. Multiwall Polycarbonate plastic sheets are made of horizontal walls connected by regular vertical ribs to provide strength with good insulation. It is available in thicknesses ranging from 4mm Twinwall up to 35mm 7 wall for large span roofs. Multiwall is used for Conservatories; Patio Canopies; Carports; Covered walkways & many other applications. There is a choice of Clear; Bronze Tint; Opal White & Bi - Colours. Clear Polycarbonate sheet gives up to 80% light transmission depending on thickness whilst Opal sheet is very popular for Conservatory roofs.

Perspex Acrylic SheetsThis is the brand name established by ICI for their range of Perspex Acrylic ( PMMA ) sheeting & has become the name commonly used for Acrylic regardless of manufacturer or country of origin. Perspex Acrylic sheeting is produced in two different ways: Extruded which is produced through a die & Cast which is formed between 2 large sheets of glass. The extruded method is mainly for Clear sheeting used for glazing applications whilst cast produces a much higher quality finish, is often coloured, & used for sanitary ware ( e.g. baths). At Meridian we sell mainly clear extruded Perspex Acrylic sheets in 2mm; 3mm; 4mm & 6mm thicknesses in a large range of standard sizes but we also cut to exact size requirements. Perspex Acrylic is 10 times stronger than the equivalent thickness of non toughened glass but less than half the weight. It is uv stabilised so is ideal for external glazing & provides 90% light transmission.

Fascia Boards (uPVC)House Fascia Boards are located immediately below the roof line onto which guttering is attached. The quality; stability & life span of Fascia Board PVCu has greatly improved in recent years &, being maintenance free, has now commonly replaced timber for this application.

Ceramic tiles are the most commonly used product for covering bathroom & shower-room walls but Pvc sheeting ( both plain & patterned ) offers a useful; practical & cost effective alternative. Often described as Bathroom Cladding, large Pvc sheets ( 8' x 4' & 10' x 4' ) can be fixed directly on to a rigid surface e.g. the existing walls, if flat & true, or onto Plywood & then mounted on to battens. There is a wide range of Trims; Angles & accessories to join & waterproof the panels. We at Meridian supply White Pvc sheets in the above 2 sizes in 3 thicknesses. These sheets are very economically priced & are also widely used as Hygienic Cladding for Kitchen walls ; Food Preparation Areas; Laboratories & other applications where cleanliness is vital. Pvc sheet is easy to wash down & when done effectively prevents the build up of bacteria.
