Home depot or the like should sell it in small sheets. I would go with ~ 3/8" plexi or lexan.

Maurice - My father and i own a glass company...(speaking from experience)...I wouldnt go withh ANYTHING below 3/4" plexi-glass depending on the overall size of it. If its a small area that you are trying to cover with the plexi, 3/4" should be OK.
