What are the benefits in a glass splashback?
There are multiple benefits to using a glass splashback. Glass splashbacks provide a durable, long- lasting and striking reflective surface in all sorts of architectural settings, most typically, kitchens, bathrooms, bars and restaurants. Glass provides a large, seamless surface that is easy to clean and maintain. The glass is painted on the reverse giving it a beautiful appearance with an endless list of available finishes to suit your desire.
What type of glass is used?
We use either clear glass, which has a natural green tint – good for dark, cool and strong colours, or Starphire glass which is a low-iron glass, eliminating the green tint and lending itself to more accurate colour matching for light, warm and bright colours. Our splashbacks are typically 6mm thick toughened safety glass, providing a product that is light enough to be handled but strong enough to adhere to all Australian building standards. As well as being 4-5 times stronger than non-toughened glass, the toughening process also makes the glass resistant to heat, making it suitable for use behind a cook top.
When should I engage The Splashback Company in my project timeline?
We can quote the job as soon as you have plans and advise on shape, colour and set-up, but we don’t do a technical laser measure until the cabinets and bench top have been fitted.
What surface preparation do I need?
Make sure you have a clean, smooth surface behind the splashback, free of sharp imperfections that could damage the painted surface of the glass. We use toughened safety glass and install a fire resistant backing as per regulation where required.
