The year end production

// November 11th, 2012 // No Comments » // Blog, General Information

We are coming up to christmas and it’s a very busy time at Showcase, we have all our crew working long hours getting all the work done, just like Santa Claus!

This is so that we are completely up to date come closing time over the christmas break.
We close for four weeks over that time, and will be hitting full production as soon as we are back, ready for all your work to come in.

A few facts of interest.

Perspex is a brand of acrylic, and not an interchangeable word for acrylic
Fabrication is not the cutting out of plastic; but the constructing of…adding the returns to the sides.
Acrylic is half the weight of glass; yet 10 times stronger.
There are two types of Acrylic Extruded and Cast Acrylic…we use the latter

Are you aware we supply to the industry, but are also happy to whip you up a display case for that signed footy you have, or to make you a set of drawer dividers for the kitchen, we can cut you a piece of acrylic for the garden shed/pergola as easily as we can cut your name out of acrylic.
We customise and can cut things out on the CNC multicam router, whether it be your address in acrylic or the name of your dog for his kennel.

Come in and see us or email us a file for a quote.

Cell Cast Acrylic has unique physical properties and performance characteristics. It weighs half as much as glass, yet is equal to glass in clarity and is up to 17 times more impact resistant.

Most often, it is used to describe a clear, glass-like plastic known as poly(methyl) methacrylate (PMMA). PMMA, also called acrylic glass, has properties that make it a better choice for many products that might otherwise be made of glass.

There are two basic types: extruded and cast.


A unique property of this thermoplastic is its ability to be shaped. Showcase Plastic &Displays can custom fabricate a wide variety of items including –

  • Tradeshow Display
  • POS items
  • Display boxes
  • Podiums

  • Cubes
