Stockline Dundee a bit closer...

you also might struggle getting 2060 square as most stock sheets are 3000x2000mm

If flexible on thickness, Righton will do unbranded materials MUCH cheaper...still, you might have to drop the dimensions.

are you sure perspex is the correct spec? i would have thought they would have wanted polycarbonate, doesnt break, and fire rated... but more expensive

Also scratches REALLY badly unless you buy Lexan Margard or similar.

Acrylic is a lot more forgiving when you wipe it clean....and breaking 12mm acrylic takes a hell of a lot of effort when it's a display piece.

Right about the fire rating though...
