Perspex® acrylic is a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) acrylic which is made from methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA) and trademarked by Lucite International, now Perspex International Ltd. Produced directly from methyl methacrylate monomer, a panel of Perspex® is cast between two sheets of high-quality glass, before being polymerised in specially designed kilns and water baths in a manufacturing process first discovered by scientists in 1934, the year in which the name Perspex® was trademarked.
Perspex® is easy to keep clean and sanitised, which makes is an excellent choice for social distancing screens. Simply wipe your panels down regularly to maintain a healthy and hygienic work environment.
Transparent Perspex® offers a better optical clarity than glass, meaning that a clear Perspex® screen will maintain proper social distancing within your workplace but still allow light to pass through for an airy and pleasant work environment. It also makes communication between colleagues, or between staff and customers, easy and effective.
