Using Plexiglass (Acrylic) Sheets to Protect Your Tabletop: An Elegant and Practical Solution

When it comes to safeguarding your valuable furniture, especially tabletops, traditional options like glass have typically been preferred. However, advancements in materials have made Plexiglass (brand name for acrylic), a superior alternative. Acrylic is not only aesthetically pleasing but also offers enhanced functionality and durability, making it an excellent choice for
tabletop protection. In this blog, we’ll explore why acrylic is a fantastic choice for tabletops, the variety available, and how you can order custom sizes from Bramur Plastics.

Why Choose Acrylic Over Glass?

Acrylic sheets are an outstanding choice for tabletop protection for several reasons:

Durability and Safety:
Acrylic is much more impact-resistant than glass, reducing the likelihood of breakage. This feature is particularly beneficial in homes with children or pets, where the risk of accidents is higher. Unlike glass, which can shatter into dangerous shards, acrylic breaks into larger, blunt pieces that are less likely to cause injury.

Lightweight: Being lighter than glass, acrylic is easier to handle, install, and move. This makes it ideal for larger tables that need substantial coverage.

Cost-Effective: Acrylic is generally more affordable than glass, especially when
considering custom sizes and finishes.

Variety in Thickness and Style

Acrylic sheets are available in various thicknesses. Common options include 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4". You can also choose from clear, tinted, or frosted finishes to match your decor or achieve a distinct look.
