Where to get windscreen materials

I keep tripping over comments about where to get some flexible material which could be formed around the top of a curved console. E Bay is often quoted but I cannot seem to locate a seller of the flexible perspex/polycarbonate which could be used (and cut) to form such a screen

Is there a definitive source of this material or can anyone suggest a source - am looking at more of a wrap around rather than a tall screen but would appreciate comments on manufacturing either

Mine came from the skip outside a sign makers

It needs heating with a hot air gun, or as I did boiling water, to form tight bends.
