Our diy printed kitchen glass splashbacks are made from 6mm toughened opti clear glass, and are polished on all edges.
The images are digitally printed on to the back of the glass using a UV cured ink. Once printed, the glass is again printed in a solid white to enhance the colours and to ensure that the glass is opaque once fitted. The images are printed up to 1440 dpi, depending on the quality of the image file, resulting in amazing print quality. We offer a 7 year guarantee against discolouration on all our printed glass splashbacks.
Our printed glass splashbacks may not appear exactly as represented in our image previews due to differences in aspect ratio. For example, the majority of our printed image previews are square shaped but the size you ordered could be taller than it is wide (portrait) or wider than it is tall (landscape). In these circumstances we reserve the right to decide which way is best to size the artwork for your glass splashback, we will usually email you through a proof of print but at busy periods we will print as a best fit. If you require a print proof please email us through.
Adding Clear shield to your order will provide you with a 6K surface protection system specifically designed to protect glass using Nano technology to provide a hydrophobic, water repelling coating. The hydro- and oleo phobic effects makes it difficult for particles of contamination such as grease and dirt to adhere and allows them to be easily removed without applying abrasive agents giving an 'easy-clean' effect.
Sizing: All toughened glass has a 1-2mm tolerance on the sizes. As the glass is toughened it is heated and cooled repeatedly. This causes the glass to expand and contract slightly during the process and can effect the overall measure on width or height - thus the tolerance/expansion gap guide.
Drill Holes: If ordered with drill holes the will be placed 25mm in from each edge, unless stated otherwise.
Adhesive If using adhesive, we recommend that you purchase with the order as some others can react with the paint/print on the back of the splashback.
