Premium Glass How To Guides

Premium Glass Installation Guide:

Fitting your new bathroom or kitchen splashback is easy, provided the wall is flat and in good condition.

We recommend that you use a mirror adhesive sealant to fit your splashback, sometimes called silicone. To make life a bit easier, we supply fitting adhesive as part of your order.

Surface preparation:

  • The wall should be free from bows, twists or raised areas over approximately 2-3mm. Unevenness of less than that depth can be taken up by adhesive.
  • Any sharp areas need to be sanded.
  • All walls must be sealed using either PVA or emulsion paint.

Ultimately, the walls will be obscured by the glass, so the surface doesn’t need to look pretty.

*We do not recommend customers attempt to fit glass kitchen or bathroom splashbacks on top of existing tiles*.

Preparing your glass:

After unwrapping your new splashback, lay it face down on a towel or blanket.

Apply the adhesive silicone to the back of the glass in a grid of 20mm sized blobs. Ideally, they should be around 100mm apart. As you place the blobs along the edges, remember the adhesive will spread a little as you push it onto the wall, so don’t place them right on the edge.

Installing your glass:

Lift the glass onto the wall and into position. If your glass is being fitted behind a hob, it is a good idea to fit 2mm temporary spacers between the splashback and the cooker while the silicone cures.

Once your glass is in position on the wall, gently push down evenly across its surface, making sure it is bonded firmly all over.

If you feel like an area is less secure, gently lift the glass off the wall and apply more adhesive, before placing it back into position.

The silicone should be fully cured after 24 hours. Remember to remove your spacers before the adhesive fully sets!

Once the silicone has cured, apply the same sealant around the edges of your new splashback, making sure the gaps between the wall and your glass are filled neatly.

Once dry we then recommend that you apply your grout. This is an additional safeguard to prevent any moisture from the grout interfering or damaging the inks on the back of the glass.

Premium Glass Cleaning Guide:

Our glass kitchen and bathroom splashbacks are made from super-smooth premium quality glass, which makes them very hygienic and easy to clean.

Following these simple steps will help keep your product in perfect condition.

  • Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe away any food spills and splashes. The sooner you do this after cooking, the easier it’ll be!
  • Don’t use anything abrasive on your splashback. We don’t recommend scraping or scrubbing with a scourer. If you have a dried-on splash, try simply spraying it with household detergent until it softens and wipes away easily.
  • Once your surface is free from food, use a mild soapy detergent to wipe away any grease marks.
  • Use another soft cloth to remove the detergent and dry off the glass.
  • If there are still marks left from cleaning, use a very soft cloth to buff over the surface until you get a streak-free finish.
