Akril Panel  is an innovative new acrylic sheet which is targeting vertical surfaces including wets areas in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry’s, cupboard doors, commercial fitouts, retail shops, wall cladding, kitchen splashbacks and various outdoor applications. It comes with a 10 year UV warranty.

It was released mid-last year at Designbuild in Melbourne. Akril Managing Director Brian Hughes said, “The response was even greater than we anticipated. Designers, architects and builders loved it."

Whilst it gives the appearance and finish of painted glass at a cost effective rate, it doesn’t give you the same constraints. “The two key benefits people loved were its ability to be taken to site and fitted, and the fact you could polish out any scratches on the surface,’’ Hughes said.

Akril have been working on this product for four years and believe its introduction will help overcome many of the logistic and handling issues designers and builders have with glass. The panels are easily cut, light weight and provide a very clean decorative finish.

Akril has released the panels in standard sizes and in eight designer colours. When needed they will also offer specific colours.

Akril Panel is available Australia wide in all standard sizes and thicknesses.
