Easy Maintenance

  • Acrylic splashbacks keep dust and grease marks off much more than stainless steel and glass.
  • Acrylic splashbacks are very hygienic because there are few, if any, joins - andthere's no more grouting.
  • Use warm water with a small amount of mild detergent and a soft cotton cloth to clean acrylic.
    Alternatively we'revery impressed with the results from acrylic cleaner VuPlex which polishes acrylic to a high shine in seconds. Keep your acrylic looking like brand new by adding VuPlex acrylic cleaner to your order today.

Simple Installation

  • Acrylic kitchen splashbacks are half the weight of an equivalent glass sheet and 25 x more impact resistant - this makes themvery light and safe to handle
  • Fitting is typically 4 x faster than glass splashbacks or ceramic tiles
  • Our splashbacks can be screwedto new and existingwalls. We can pre-drill holes for you, just select them in our form above. We suggest you order your holes and screws every 500mm.
  • Our non translucent splashbacks can also be fixed to new and existing walls using adhesive. We recommend the wall area is prepared white and StrongStuff adhesive is thinly and evenly spread across the entire splashback before fixing into place.Please note that StrongStuff dries white, not clear. A 200ml tube covers approx 2 square metres.

  • Any joins can be sealed using neutral transparent silicone

Cooker Safe

  • Acrylic splashbacks can be used behind cookers. The distance between the outer edge of a ceramic hob and the wall must be at least 60mm. The distance for gas hobs must be atleast 200mm.

Colour Advice

  • If you are unsure of a colour we recommend purchasing a sample so you can check it before placing yourorder.
  • For large scale commercial projectsour helpful Customer Services team can advice about morespecific colour requirements, eg) to match schemes or brand colours.
Can I fit an acrylic splashback myself ?

Because our acrylic splashbacks are so light they are very easy to lift and manoeuvre making fitting fairly easy. They can be either screwed or glued to your wall. If you choose a clear or translucent splashback we recommend fitting the splashback with screws because adhesive will be visible through clear and translucent acrylic.

Fitting is typically 4 x faster than glass splashbacks or ceramic tiles.

Can I put an acrylic splashback behind a hob ?

Acrylic splashbacks can go behind hobs but a safe distance must be kept.
The distance between the outer edge of a ceramic hob and the wall must be at least 60mm.
The distance for gas hobs must be at least 200mm.

How do I measure up for a splashback ?

To produce a splashback for your space we will need measurements of that area – for example, the length and width and measurements for any special cut outs. Alternatively you can always make a template of the area and post it to use if that is easier.

How many screw holes should I have on my splashback to fit it safely ?

We recommend that there are screws fixed approximately every 300mm.

How should acrylic splashbacks be cleaned ?

We are often asked about the best way to care for acrylic splashbacks.

Acrylic splashbacks can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth. Most splashbacks will be seamless — just wipe them clean with water, there’s no longer any worry about bacteria being trapped in grout.

No chemical cleaning products should be used on acrylic as this will lead to damage to the acrylic.

Alternatively, we are very impressed with suitable cleaner Vuplex for a shiny, cleaner, more lustrous finish with no smears or smudges. It makes colored plastics vibrant, clear plastics virtually transparent and plastic paints gleaming like new. Vuplex isa product which delivers fast quality results with minimal effort and fuss. It also protects new plastic from scratches and grime and restores plastic which has fine scratches and in ground grime.

Is acrylic heat resistant ?

Acrylic is heat resistant up to 70 degrees.
