Plastock Produces the Perfect Finish
Perspex® acrylic stockists and manufacturing specialists Plastock were asked to provide expert advice for the BBC popular prime time program, The House That £100k Built. In this particular episode the budget was a mere £70k, which had to cover the cost of the build, exterior and interior décor and furnishings.
Esteemed architect Piers Taylor was called in for assistance throughout the show and when a dilapidated kitchen showed itself to be in dire need of some TLC – on a budget - he introduced the novice house-builders to Plastock.
The clients needed a material that was durable, attractive and most of all, cost-effective, to make an impact in their home. After a tour around the Plastock warehouse in High Wycombe, they had their solution.
A bright array of fabulous Perspex® acrylic sheets were shown along with suggestions for and demonstrations of their range, functionality, colour and versatility.
The Plastock team were also able to illustrate the design capabilities of Perspex® acrylic alongside their own fabrication services as they did a live demonstration of thermoforming – a technique whereby a sheet of Perspex® acrylic is bent to make it more malleable for design work. They also showcased a wide range of acrylic rods and tubes they had in stock and spoke of their usefulness within design.
The finished installation revealed a myriad of multi-coloured Perspex® sheets which came together to form a vibrant and eye-catching centre-piece in the couple’s kitchen. The sheets were juxtaposed with old antique kitchen units giving them a well-needed makeover and modern touch. Further Perspex® acrylic was also used to provide bespoke kitchen shelving.
