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.

Sockets

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. Yes, our glass is always toughened, we do not supply untoughened glass! The glass splashbacks and splashback coating are heat resistant and will not crack behind the hob. Please see our Toughened Glass Splashbacks page for more information.

A. Yes. All Easy Glass Splashbacks glass splashback panels are toughened glass to BS6206.

You may fit your extractor fan to the top of a curved or flat glass splashback.

A. Our glass splashbacks are made as standard from 6mm toughened, low iron glass.

A. Fitting a single glass splashback panel is easy, and we would recommend you do this yourself, with the silicone glue that we provide. However, when several glass splashbacks need to be measured to fit together this is much more difficult. Unless you are an extremely competent DIYer, we would recommend that you employ a professional to measure and fit, or take advantage of our fitting service, when more than one glass splashback panel is required. If you are measuring yourself, we suggest you go to the trouble of making glass splashback templates from 8mm MDF. If the MDF templates fit, the glass splashbacks will fit. From our own experience, we know that there are many pitfalls! Please see our Measure & Fit page for further information.

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.

A. We do not recommend this.

A. We would recommend against this. If you install clear glass then you require drilled holes to install the glass instead of the silicone adhesive which creates a more seamless look. Also over time you will see dirt and condensation up the back of the glass, this would be avoided if you were to choose a back painted glass splashback which would be opaque and all sealed in.
