If you need a little more information, carry on reading the helpful tips below:
Before you start, check that your splashback fits the space and make sure it sits is at least 110mm away from the nearest heat source. Check the surface is perfectly flat, non-porous, dry and dust free.
In addition to the splashback itself, all you need is a tape measure, drill, clear silicone sealant, sealant gun and a clean cloth.
FIRST: Decide where you want to position your splashback, then carefully and accurately mark where the drill holes need to be. Select the correct sized drill bit and determine depth of hole required. Once drilling complete, insert wall plugs firmly into holes
NEXT: Place the bottom edge of the splashback to the rear of the sink or vanity unit lining up the pre-drilled holes with those on the wall. Insert the screws, fix to the wall and cover screw heads with decorative caps (supplied)
FINALLY: Use the Clear Silicone Sealant to seal around all four sides of the splashback. Take care to ensure that the sealant is no more than 2.5mm in thickness.
Note: Our splashbacks are made from high quality toughened glass and so cannot be cut.
From a health and safety perspective, we recommend that glass splashbacks are handled with care and that eye protection and suitable gloves should be worn. Although our splashbacks are made of 6mm toughened safety glass, nevertheless they are fragile and special care should be taken with the corners of the product as impact will cause the glass to shatter.
