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.
King MediGrade® HDPE sheets feature proprietary zinc-based antimicrobial technology to protect the sheet surface against stain and odor causing bacteria, fungi, and algae. MediGrade®'s antimicrobial properties are built-in rather than added on as a surface coating -- they are permanent and will protect against bacterial degradation for the product's lifespan. Other antimicrobial agents such as silver or triclosan will leach toxins into their environments over time in order to poison the microbes, while MediGrade®'s built-in protection does not leach any toxins and instead disrupts the cell wall of a microbe to produce the same or similar effect.
This antimicrobial plastic is UV stabilized and will not rust, delaminate, or rot. MediGrade® HDPE sheets are easy to fabricate using common tools and are used across the world in many medical applications such as lab cabinets & clean room panels. Medigrade® comes with a matte gloss finish on both sides.
This product features high impact strength, abrasion, moisture, stain, and odor resistances and contains no VOCs. It will not splinter, rot or absorb harmful bacteria, and has excellent chemical resistance, making it easy to sanitize.
