Advantages of an acrylic book stand

Stylish and modern: With its bright and shiny appearance, it adds a touch of modernity to any room.

Durable and strong: It resists cracking and breaking, making it a more durable choice than glass.

Easy-care: Fingerprints or dust? A soft cloth and some water are enough to make your stand shine.

Different types and styles: Thanks to the many colours and finishes of available acrylic, you can let your creativity run wild.

Why choose acrylic?

Book stands made of glass can break easily if they are dropped. Wood, in turn, can split due to changes in humidity. Acrylic does not have these disadvantages. It will not break or split easily, all of which makes it very durable.

Acrylic is also easy to work into any shape. Moreover, our shape calculator gives you all the tools you need to make a creative and handy book stand. Finally, there are many shades available for an original book stand look.

How do you care and maintain your stand?

A soft cloth in combination with an antistatic cleaner works the best for cleaning acrylic. This will prevent the book stand from becoming statically charged, it will therefore not attract dust. Do not use abrasive or aggressive agents when cleaning acrylic book stands. Even Glassex is not a suitable agent, and will damage the acrylic. To avoid scratches, place your stand on a soft surface and avoid placing sharp objects on it.
