    Light Diffuser Cut To Size Details

    Opal Gloss Perspex® cast acrylic is a luminous and versatile material that is an ideal light diffuser. Our stunning Opal plastic sheets are made of Perspex®, a high-quality brand of acrylic plastic sheeting. Perspex® sheets are lightweight yet durable, making them a delight to work with.

    An opal plastic sheet is a perfect choice if you want a high-quality light diffuser for projects involving LEDs or ambient lighting.

    Beautiful and Convenient Acrylic Light Diffuser

    Opal Gloss acrylic’s brilliant and bright colour makes it a popular option for interior designers and DIY enthusiasts. Gloss Perspex® material has a stunning, high gloss finish and can be polished to the highest standard.

    Light diffusers can be easily and safely installed in any space. A reflective Perspex® sheet will help with alleviating the harshness of strong lightning to lower the chance of headaches or eye strain.

    A light diffuser helps with the glare of electronic devices or direct light sources. An opal plastic sheet can also help with creating the desired mood by manipulating the illumination of space or objects. Opalescent diffusers are perfect for office applications.

    Thanks to the durability of Perspex® material, an Opal Light Diffuser will not yellow, even after years of use, and will lower the chance of glare points appearing.

    Vibrant and Versatile Plastic Light Diffuser

    Off-white sheets are the prime choice for any project using light sources, such as lightboxes or acrylic LED displays. The opal surface gorgeously reflects UV and ambient light. The semi-transparent nature of the panel allows the light to pass through, making the opalescent sheet perfect for LED-backed surfaces.

    The impeccable gloss of coloured Perspex®, combined with a milky shade of lustrous white, makes opal acrylic a fantastic choice for under-the-floor lighting for dance-floors, LED wall tiles, and glow-in-the-dark art exhibitions.

    Solid colour plastic sheets offer excellent chemical resistance and good electrical insulation properties. Opal plastic sheets are considerably flame and heat-resistant, having a Class 3 Fire Rating.

    Perspex® sheeting’s strength and durability make opal acrylic an incredibly versatile material you can use almost anywhere.
