How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy [X]
Cut-To-Size Items are Non-Returnable!
As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade. Please review our full return and shipping policy here.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.
How to Use a Measuring Tape
Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.
Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.
Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook
The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).
Sanitizing Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sheet [X]
Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sneeze Guards and like products require special care while cleaning and disinfecting. To maintain the optical clarity of sneeze guards and other acrylic or polycarbonate items, use an acrylic or polycarbonate safe cleaner like Novus Plastic Polish #1, Brillianize Plastic Cleaner, or a mild soap solution.
Please reference the following compatible cleaners when DISINFECTING acrylic and polycarbonate items. The use of commonly available commercial alcohol or ammonia-based disinfectants may cause crazing and damage.
Compatible Polycarbonate Disinfectants:
• sBioMed Steriplex SD
• Safetec Surface Wipes
• Contec Healthcare Perodox RTU
• Contec Healthcare PS-911 EB Prostat Sterile Wipes
Compatible Acrylic Disinfectants:
• Pharmacy Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
• Household Bleach
• Isopropyl Alcohol (Water Diluted to 30% Strength)

Clear cast acrylic sheets are versatile thermoplastic sheets that provide an economical alternative to polycarbonate when high strength isn't required. Acrylic is easy to machine and handle, and its excellent transparency, low cost, and moderate qualities make it a preferred material for a variety of applications. It exhibits more brittleness when loaded than polycarbonate, especially when subjected to impacts. Clear cast acrylic sheets allow up to 92% of visible light through while reflecting only 4% from each of its surfaces. Acrylic has a higher impact strength than both glass and polystyrene at less than half the density of glass.
Acrylic has outstanding resistance to long-term exposure to sunlight and weathering. It also has low water absorption, good electrical resistivity, and fair tensile strength. Its applications are effectively infinite and include art installations, outdoor signs, glazing, aircraft canopies, skylights, automotive taillights, dials, buttons, lighting applications, knobs, and machine covers.
Cast acrylic is incredibly durable but is not bullet resistant. For maximum ballistic or repeated high force impact protection, Interstate Plastics recommends certain grades of polycarbonate sheets.
