Technical

General - Glass Splashbacks can be installed almost anywhere that wall tiles have traditionally been used. Typically kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms, although they are not limited to these rooms, they can be installed almost anywhere to create a feature.

 

Glass Types - Generally, two types of glass are used.
Standard (Float) Glass has a slight green appearance
Float glass contains small traces of iron and because of this, when colour is applied to the back of the glass, it has a slight green tint.For this reason it is not recommended to use float glass for lighter colours.

Opti-clear (Low-iron) Glass is optically very clear
Opti-clear glass has a very low-iron content and therefore provides a much truer representation of your selected colour.
It is highly suitable for applying any colour but is recommended for lighter colours.

 

Toughened
As standard all our glass is supplied toughened and complies with the BSI and kitemark standards. 

 

Safety 
All is glass is supplied 6mm thick for splashbacks and upstands and 10mm thick for worktops, toughened, with polished edges as standard for safety. Once fixed into place the glass is very strong and hard-wearing.

 

Colours
As standard, you can choose from the RAL & BS colour charts, although we also offer a colour matching service.

 

Installation
Your glass must be fixed with a special adhesive and sealant that will not react with the colour coating. This can be purchased form us.

 

Size & Shape
The glass is all custom made so almost any size and shape can be manufactured, altough certain shapes are not practical such as the 'T' & 'L' shapes as it weakens the glass and increases the risk of breakage. In these cases the glass can be split into 2 or 3 pieces to achieve the overall shape required.
The accuracy of the sizes supplied by you are vital as the cutting of the glass is done prior to toughening, once toughened no changes can be made.

 

Cutouts & Holes
Cutouts for sockets, switches, hobs, sinks and drill holes etc can be put into the glass. All cutouts need to be a minimum of 50mm from the edge of the cutout to the edge of another cutout or edge of the glass.


Guarantee
10-year guarantee against delamination of the colour coating, providing the installation requirements are met and the correct adhesive and sealant used.
