What thickness of glass is used?

Typically glass splashbacks are manufactured in 6mm toughened safety glass. This is resistant to heat and impact. Work surfaces however are produced in 19mm toughened safety glass.

Why use a low-iron glass?

We use a low-iron glass - either Pilkington Opti-white or Diamant from Saint-Gobain - as this is more optically clear than normal glass. It provides a clearer definition of the colour chosen, as normal clear glass has an inherent green characteristic which becomes more pronounced, the thicker the glass. This is particularly important if splashbacks need to match the thicker work surfaces in a kitchen for example.

Both thicknesses of glass have a different iron content if using normal clear glass, so the 19mm will appear greener, in turn affecting the paint colour. This issue is drastically reduced when using low-iron glass, rendering both thicknesses almost the same colour when painted.

How is coloured glass produced?

All glass splash backs and worktops are manufactured to order. The colour is spray painted onto the back of the glass, with a paint especially made to bond to the glass so it will not peel or flake.

What colours are available?

We can mix up thousands of colours including all RAL, British Standard and Dulux colours. We also offer a bespoke colour mixing service, so there is no colour we can not match!
