What is splashback glass?
Glass splashbacks were once an uncommon occurrence in homes but have since become the focal point of many kitchens. Their ability to bring your kitchen together with an infinite number of colours to choose from, their low maintenance and high-impact design have made them a popular choice compared to regular kitchen tiles. Cut to size, our glass splashbacks can slide seamlessly into any room in your home. Commonly found in kitchens, splashback glass is also becoming a popular design feature for bathrooms and washrooms around the world. Manufactured in any colour, glass splashbacks can give an otherwise bland room that ‘lift’ it so desperately needs.
Creating glass splashbacks
The creation of glass splashbacks begins with glass cutting. Knowing your required dimensions, design ideas, and its application, our master craftsmen can get to work on cutting and designing the splashbacks. All dimensions and measurements must be as accurate as possible, right down to every mm. Once your kitchen splashbacks have been cut to size they will undergo a toughening process to make them more durable and long lasting. The final step before our master craftsmen begins the toughening process is the polishing of the splashback edges to give it that smooth, safe finish.
Your glass splashback is then heated in a large glass toughening kiln-like machine and can reach temperatures of 620 degrees. The glass is rapidly cooled and the contracting of the glass creates a tension that improves the splashback’s resistance to heat and stress, making it a perfect material for behind the hob.
By using toughened glass, you can ensure maximum safety and durability in your kitchen. Toughened glass is more than 4 times stronger than your regular glass, and can withstand the high temperatures of any kitchen. The composition of toughened safety glass also ensures that in the unlikely event that your glass splashback was to break, the glass wouldn’t break into sharp, dangerous shards but into small chunks – making it a much safer material.
Coloured glass splashbacks
After the toughening process has been completed, it’s time to give the glass a splash of colour. You can choose from a patterned design or any colour. If you choose a specific colour, your splashback glass will generally be sprayed. The application of colour is applied behind the glass, so you never have to replace your kitchen splashbacks as the colour will remain as vibrant and beautiful throughout its lifetime. With an infinite amount of colours to choose from, you can either pick from our default range of colours or let us know if you’re looking for something specific.
