Glass splashbacks can be installed almost anywhere wall tiles have traditionally been used. And can be installed in Kitchens above benches and in cabinetry, Bathrooms over basins, around baths and over walls and Laundries over benches and around walls.
We use 5mm thick glass in our splashbacks which are safety and code compliance. Cabinetry panels can be use 4mm glass and we recommend toughened safety glass.
Is inherently green, which lends a green tinge to any colour coating beneath. This has the strongest effect on light or neutral colours. Darker colours are rendered approximately ¼ shade darker. Where colour match is particularly important we recommend the use of Low Iron glass which is almost completely clear and has a far lesser effect on the colour coating.
Choose from the Resene Mono (Standard) & Metallic charts and can often be coloured matched with other major manufacturers. When choosing your colour bear in mind the type of glass required to get a colour match.
Splashbacks installed within 200mm of a gas hob are to be made from toughened safety glass. All glass splashbacks installed in a bathroom must us toughened safety glass.
Glass that is more than 200mm from a heat source may be in Annealed glass. Whereas this is cheaper, the installed glass is more likely to break. Where cut outs for electrical sockets, holes and fixings are required it is recommended toughened glass is used to provide sufficient strength.
The splashback must be fixed to the wall using the supplied neutral cure sealant that won’t react with the painted surface on the back of the glass.
Important Information : The gas hob should be installed in such a way that the flame cannot come into contact with or close proximity to the surface of the splashback. Generally this means keeping the hob at least 50mm from the surface of the splashback. Although the glass is heat resistant, the colour-coating could be affected by direct heat from the flame.
Size / Shape.
Splashbacks are custom made for your location. Where there’s a special shape a template will be required to ensure an accurate fit. All visible edges of the glass have polished edges.
Cut outs for switches/power points can be put in your splashbacks. These should be a minimum of 50mm from the edge of the glass.
