A guide for fitting your splashback


Important - Preventing Breakages

Before you remove the glass from the packaging make sure you have a flat clean area slightly larger than the glass with something soft underneath to lay the glass on.

All our splashbacks are made from toughened glass and are heat resistant. They are however, susceptible to breakage if dropped on a corner or straight edge. To avoid breakage do not stand the glass up on its corner end, and do not stand the glass up on its end without something soft protecting the edges.

Do not attempt to cut drill or adjust the glass.

Do not lean the splashback against walls  Do not drill or hammer holes into the splashback

Fitting Instructions

Tools required:

  1. Silicon gun
  2. Suction handling pads (Optional for very large panels only).

Before you remove the glass from the packaging make sure you have a flat clean area slightly larger than the glass with something soft underneath to lay the glass on. All our splashbacks are made from toughened glass and are heat resistant. They are however, susceptible to breakage if dropped on a corner or straight edge. To avoid breakage do not stand the glass up on its corner end, and do not stand the glass up on its end without something soft protecting the edges. Do not attempt to cut drill or adjust the glass.

The glass should be adhered to a secure and permanent surface like a plastered wall or plywood. If the wall is powdery you may need to seal it with a PVA first and then wait for it to dry before adhering the glass.

Slight uneven surfaces may be corrected with extra silicone Avoid touching or wetting the splashback for 24 hours following installation
  1. Remove the glass splashback from the packaging and place it image or colour side down, on a prepared flat, clean, soft surface. 
  2. Now that the glass is on a flat clean surface, using our neutral cure, solvent free silicone adhesive; you can start applying equally sized proportions (roughly 20mm about 100mm apart). Be careful not to put any silicone too close to the edge as this may squeeze over the edge of the glass.
  3. Place the glass splashback into position on the wall and gently press into place. 
  4. Ensure there is enough silicone adhesive in place between the worktop and the glass to avoid water ingress. 
  5. Avoid touching or wetting the glass splashback for 24 hours to allow the silicone adhesive to set. 

 Care Instructions

  1. Use microfibre cloths – they clean spillages without the need for harsh chemicals.
  2. Toughened glass is very strong and it is difficult to break even with high impact. However, we recommend the glass be treated with care.
  3. Never use abrasive polishing pads or material (e.g. wax) on the glass surface.
