Perspex - where to get it?

Post by KatieB on Sat Oct 18, 2014 11:31 am

Ive noticed from fb that some people use Perspex to winter proof a run... does anyone know the best place to get it? and how best would you fit it?

Most DIY places like B&Q, Screwfix, etc. stock perspex but it ain't cheap. Screwfix have a minimum order too!

Wickes sell 10mm thick polycarbonate sheeting which isn't too badly priced. This can be cut to size easily with a fine toothed hand saw. To fix it, simply drill SLOWLY through it with a drill bit 1mm larger than the screw diameter and slip a penny washer (or repair washer) onto the screw before fitting. This will stop the screw head pulling through the polycarbonate Thumbs Up

For the walls Claudia (interior walls) I just used some of the double sided fixing tabs that can be repositioned - no more nails or similar.

Mike get's it from B&Q and it's not cheap, we have seen it cheaper online such as eBay but Mike was worried that it would arrive broken.
