Plastics

Creating anything out of Perspex, from prototypes to mass production

Acrylic cases

Gordon Engraving has a great deal of experience in producing acrylic display cases for a wide range of uses.

We combine our personalised design service with the use of a variety of types and thickness of materials, to ensure we meet the client’s needs and expectations. 

We designed and created the case used to display Her Majesty the Queen’s millennium diamond at the Tower of London. We have also worked with museums, stately homes, promotional companies and private individuals. 

In addition to individual, bespoke cases, we can mass produce display materials for commercial production runs.

 

Fabrications

Fabrication is defined as ‘the action and process of manufacturing and inventing something’ and Gordon Engraving has a great deal of experience in fabricating anything plastic. We have used our expertise to make a whole host of different plastic items including exhibition stands, lecterns, point-of-sale displays, acrylic cases, awards, signs, bespoke items and much more.

Whether it’s one-off creations (such as complex experiment apparatus for a university) or longer production runs (including making balloon holders for a major restaurant chain) - with a wealth of experience in creating with plastic, we have the expertise to you help with your fabrication requirements.

 

Prototypes

So much of what we do at Gordon Engraving is bespoke.  Our work demands high levels of workmanship and experience along with a disciplined approach to accurately assess the project’s requirements. 

With our skilled bench fabricators and extensive knowledge of materials and processes, we can turn an idea from a sketch right through to a finished product. 

We have worked with many large companies, creating prototypes such as accessories for petrol stations through to merchandising aids for major sports footwear brands.

 

Magnetic Glazing

A simple solution for your double-glazing requirements

Also known as Magnetherm, our unique magnetic Perspex glazing system is an easy and cost-effective secondary glazing system.

It’s so simple. A thin white steel tape is applied to the edge of the window frame, whilst magnetic strips are attached to the edges of the Magnetherm. The Perspex then fits snugly to the window and the two pull together and close like a fridge door, only this keeps the cold out!

Magnetic glazing will immediately cut down draughts, reduce external noises and dramatically cut down on condensation.  It is warmer and safer than glass and even lets in more light. An additional feature is that in the summer, you can take it down and store until it is needed again. 

Magnetherm has been approved by Canterbury City Council in its conservation advice on secondary glazing.
