We make all our splashbacks individually to order for each customer. This means that there are no standard sizes, and the splashback will be made to fit your requirements perfectly. We can make a splashback as large as 2140mm x 1220mm in one single piece. Larger splashbacks can be achieved by making in sections with neat joins.
We strongly recommend that you do not attempt to cut the glass yourself. We can arrange for the glass to be professionally water-jet cut to accommodate electrical sockets, taps and curved extractor hoods. Please see our price list for the charge details.
We advise that a strong, flexible silicon adhesive is used and can recommend a widely available, tried and tested brand. We recommend that you use either a qualified tile fitter (see the Tile Association website www.tiles.org.uk
), or take advantage of our personal installation service. The charge for this depends on location, so please Contact Us
for a quotation.
As there are currently no British Standards for glass ‘splashbacks’, we have had ours independently tested for ‘fitness for purpose’ by British Glass - a renowned centre of technical excellence. Our glass is considered suitable for use as splashbacks so long as direct contact with high heat is avoided. Our splashbacks are ideally suited to kitchen designs. There should be a minimum distance of 10cm from the back of the hob or range, to the front of the glass. If this distance is less than 10cm, then an upstand with a height of at least 10cm should be installed.
Our tiles and splashbacks vary in thickness according to the design. Some designs, such as the Stripe and Retro series are flat and have a thickness of approximately 9mm. Designs such as the Colonsay series have an undulating surface and the thickness varies from 9mm up to 14mm.
Our glass is easy to keep clean with warm water, washing up liquid and a soft sponge. Finish by polishing with a soft dry cloth. Abrasive materials and boiling hot water should not be used.
