Verified Purchase & Recommended Product
I purchased a single sheet to test how easy it would be to enclose my screen porch, then purchased another 12 sheets to finish the job.
The single sheet was shipped to my local Home Depot quickly and for free. It was packaged first in bubble wrap, then inside a corrugate box with edge protectors and extra sheets of corrugate on the sides. The box was rigid enough to tie to the top of my SUV without fear of bending.
After I proved to myself that the sheets would serve my purpose, I purchased another 12 sheets delivered to my home. Shipping took several days longer than the original single sheet shipment to the Home Depot, but the convenience of not having to put a couple hundred pounds on my SUV rack was well worth it. The 12 sheets came in 3 or 4 packages of multiple sheets with extra sheets of corrugate on the side for protection (no bubble wrap needed). The outer corrugate was slightly scuffed, but the sheets were well protected inside.
My only recommendation is to be sure that the delivery people carry the sheets on end, as it would bend severely (and potentially break?) under its own weight if carried horizontally.
The acrylic sheets are stronger than they look and have allowed me to enclose my screen porch to keep the pollen out of my porch during the heavy Atlanta pollen season.
HOW TO CUT, DRILL, and GRIND - BEST PRACTICES:
After reading many articles about how to work with acrylic sheet and trying several techniques myself, I can offer the following advice...
To cut the sheets, it helps if you place the acrylic sheet on a board of foam insulation to support it. Use a circular saw with a 40-tooth carbide blade and a straight edge guide. Set the depth so the blade goes about 1/2" past the bottom of the sheet and just cut right through the foam insulation. If you just have a single short cut to make, you could use an acrylic scoring tool, but I had way too many to make that practical.
Drilling can be problematic: if you drill too fast, it can crack the panel; if you drill with the wrong bit or don't use water, it can leave a very unsightly (slightly melted) hole with chips around the edge that could later crack; if you make the hole too small, it could stress the panel since it expands/contracts much more than glass would. In my case, I placed the acrylic sheets behind framed screen panels that were attached to the porch framing with screws. Since the screw holes were close to the edge, I used a Foredom grinder and a 3/8" rotary HSS burr to grind a slot in from the edge. This left a very clean edge without any chipping, was easy to control, and I even rounded off the corners to make it safe and easy to handle.
