A. Yes. Easy Glass Splashbacks are specifically intended for kitchen glass splashbacks and glass shower walls, so cut-outs for sockets and holes for shower fittings are not a problem, but must be cut in our workshop prior to toughening. Once toughened, the glass cannot be cut or drilled.
Cut-outs in glass splashbacks for electrical sockets should generally be at least 50mm from the edge of the glass splashback or from each other. If sockets are placed side by side the boxes must be placed so that the socket covers sit tight against one another. The sockets sit on top of the glass splashback. Please ensure your electrician leaves plenty of wire so sockets can be fed through the glass splashback cut-outs.
Standard sizes for sockets:
Single socket 75mm x 75mm
Double socket 135mm x 75mm
Double + single 218mm x 75mm
A. Easy Glass Splashbacks glass splashbacks can be can be curved or shaped to accommodate cooker hoods, and ‘L’ or ‘T’ shapes (i.e., where there is a change in height).
You may fit your extractor fan to the top of a curved or flat glass splashback.
A. The wall needs to be free of bows, twists or raised areas over approximately 2-3mm. Any sharp areas need to be sanded. Unevenness less than that depth can be taken up by the adhesive. All walls must be sealed using either PVA or emulsion paint.
The walls will be obscured by Easy Glass Splashbacks glass splashbacks, so the surface does not need to look pretty.
Wiring must be chased into walls and any light fittings should be fitted, allowing at least 10mm for the thickness of the glass splashbacks.
Please could you contact us with the rough measurements of the pieces of the glass that you require along with the number of sockets, and then we will send you an estimate within 24hours (Monday – Friday)
