Where can I buy PVC sheets?

I want to get some sheet PVC to build a lightweight shelving unit for my baby snakes. I have no idea where to buy it, though I see it used as a material around tutorials and what not. Anybody know somewhere local to buy sheet expanded PVC?

Hobby lobby carries various thicknesses of hobby sheeting ford model railroad,or if you need a pic piece just get a piece of polystyrene from Allied plastic

Two comments:

  1. If you’re planning on using a laser cutter on this stuff, don’t. It gives off corrosive gas when lasered that can damage the machine and people.

  2. Kessler is one of my family names, in a manner of speaking. What are the odds that you’re Jewish and that your family comes from the Chicago area?

Another source for expanded PVC sheets is Reece Supply. they have a warehouse on Valley View just south of Rental Car Drive/Northgate.

Allied Plastic near Walnut and Harry Hines will carry it. Ask for Jeannie.

You can also price clear Acrylic there so you can see the snakes. :smiley: IT’s laser safe.

I recommend acrylic and Jeannie is great to work with as @talkers has said.

you can also get weldon there to bind the acrylic

I was not planning on using the laser cutter, but thanks for the tip.

Nope, I am unrelated by blood to the Kessler I got my name from. Complicated story, but that side of the family is from California

Clear is actually not ideal, they do best in when they feel secure. Thanks for the info though I will definitely check them out
