Glass Splashback Processing Options

Generally, your splashback will be on 6mm glass with a flat polished edge finish, and can be toughened for safety and durability for the heat that it may encounter being behind a stove top or oven.

There will be circumstances where you will be unable to toughen pieces due to their size as warping may occur. Your splashback can have power point cut outs (GPO’s), corner cut outs, circular cut outs as examples to mould to your desired area (see images below).

Splashback Material Options:

Clear Float Glass
Clear float glass comes with a green tint, this is due to the iron oxide content found naturally in the raw materials used to produce this product.

  • With clear float glass the thicker the clear float glass the more prominent the green tinge will be.
  • When the size of the clear float glass increases as a result so does the colour of the green/black edge.
  • When looking front-onto a piece of clear float glass it may look clear to the eye, but once turned on its side the green tinge is very visible.
  • Although clear float is the cheaper option we would not recommend using it for your splashback, due to the colour distortion it can cause once painted.
  • Clear float glass has a lower light transmission rate, this means the amount of external light that passes through the glass.
  • Clear float glass can be toughened, laminated, cut and painted.

Ultra Clear & Starphire Glass
Ultra clear and Starphire low-iron float glass deliver a clarity that can't really be compared to the standard clear float glass.

  • Elevates natural light in a space.
  • Contains less than 1⁄10 of the iron present in typical clear glass.
  • Keep its distinctive clear colour all the way to the edges.
  • When painted this glass projects clear vibrant colours true to that of the colour chosen.
  • Can be used in showers, office partitions, staircases, splashback's to produce clarity in a space.
  • This glass type can also be toughened, laminated, cut and painted just like normal float glass.
