Acrylic glass replacement for picture frames

Acrylic glass cut to size

getGraphix supplies high quality Acrylic glass, also known as Plexiglass, cut to size for picture frames.
The acrylic that we sell is the best acrylic available for framing.

Framing Grade Acrylic is manufactured to a higher standard than other grades of acrylic, such as acrylic for displays and signs, and will have fewer flaws. Lexan, a polycarbonate, and Styrene are not made in Framing Grade and are not the same quality as Framing Grade Acrylic.

Replace your picture frame glass with top quality Specialised clear Acrylic glass. Safer, lighter, durable and clearer, allowing more light through than standard glass.

Your Acrylic will have a protective polyethylene film that must be peeled off before use

Why Acrylic glass for framing?

Framing grade acrylic, also known as plexiglass, is specially made for picture framing. It is not plastic or polystryrene. Acrylic is half the weight of glass.

Clear acrylic is a lightweight, shatter-resistant product that is virtually impossible to tell apart from glass in a frame. It has an attractive glossy surface and is very transparent and colourless, which allows the most light through at 92% light transmission.

Coated with tough UV protectors, this high quality acrylic sheet in addition to other properties such as weather resistance and break resistance makes it a very popular choice for reproducible art such as posters, digital photographs, or art prints.

Your Acrylic will be delivered with a protective polyethylene film that must be peeled off before use.

What are the benefits of acrylic over glass?

Acylic is stronger, more impact resistant, lighter in weight and won't shatter. It is half the weight of glass, and a 3mm thickness of acrylic is 2 to 3 times more impact resistant than double strength window glass, 4 to 5 times more impact resistant than wire glass or other types of glass.

Acrylic transmits more light than glass. Up to 92% of visible light is transmitted through acrylic. Mineral glass transmits 80-90%, depending on the type of glass and manufacturer.

ACRYLITE framing grade sheet is the only acrylic framing grade product that is guaranteed defect free. It is an exceptional general-purpose glazing for cherished memorabilia, photographs and prints as well as for valued artwork, and is used by museums and galleries for both indoor and outdoor framing.
