Cut to size perspex sheeting is a type of acrylic sheeting that you can use for projects that require the use of plastic. If you own retail jewellery, shoes or clothing business, this would be an excellent opportunity to put up some plastic signage. Acrylic sheeting is not only friendly to your pocket but also outdoes lots of other materials when you consider durability and reliability. However, you can only make the most of them if you match the type of acrylic sign to the environment or specific application. Here is a look at various kinds of Perspex sheeting to help you make the right choice.
Infrared Perspex Sheeting
Anything you sell or display in your shop has a significant monetary value. However, some pieces are more valuable than others are, just by their material or place in history. If you have such pieces in your shop, you need to prioritise two things. The first one is their visibility, which increases the chances of a customer spotting them and you making that much-needed sale. Secondly, the security of your item is invaluable because expensive and timeless pieces always catch the eyes of a shoplifter. Infrared acrylic sheeting can transmit infrared light only, which is an essential feature for ensuring the security of your items. Your signage will be able to keep track of heat emitted by the people close to the item, combining with other security features such as cameras to help you detect theft easily.
Typically, acrylic sheeting used for making signage has the edge over ordinary plastic when it comes to resisting impact. However, you can still use more of these capabilities if you are sure that your signage will encounter much impact. Impact-modified acrylic sheeting comes with special additives aimed at enhancing the ability of the material to stand up to high impact. This is the best material if you will continuously need to transport your signage and items from one place to another by road, rail or shipping.
UV Filtering Sheeting
Ultraviolet radiation often has an adverse effect on any material that it encounters. It can wreak havoc on painted surfaces, metals, plastics and people's skin. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in signs that can not only display your items but also keep them from harmful sun rays. Indeed, there is no better way to do this than using UV filtering sheeting that will keep the harmful UV rays from penetrating and reaching your items.
