The Right Glass for your Splashback
PLANNING TO INSTALL A SPLASHBACK IN YOUR KITCHEN? THERE ARE A WIDE RANGE OF SPLASHBACK OPTIONS IN THE MARKET, AND IT CAN BE CONFUSING AND CHALLENGING FOR HOMEOWNERS TO MAKE A CHOICE.
Deciding and knowing on which material you are going to use for your Splashback can be a difficult decision. The most common and popular kitchen splashback material are tiles, however they aren’t the only option, glass is the other alternative, as opposed to stainless steel, pressed metal and natural stone. However your decision process does not stop there, you also have to choose which type of glass you are wanting.
Here are the different types of glass options that we offer and knowing the difference between them, will give you the right result and help you decide which one suits you best.
TOUGHENED SAFETY GLASS – is one of the most popular choices for splashbacks, as it can withstand the high demands of the kitchen environment. Toughened glass is a safety glass (know as tempered glass) and is certified to meet Australian Standards AS2208/1996, so if broken, crumbles into small granular pieces instead of large sharp jagged pieces, like regular glass would. Can be used in any indoor or outdoor area, for residential or commercial projects.
CRYSTAL GLASS – is a very low iron glass which eliminates that natural green tint, providing clarity and accurate colour matching and representation. It’s the most popular glass for Splashbacks, as the colours appear more vibrant.
MIRROR – Our Mirror Splashbacks are heat resistant and are available in many different colours such as bright silver, bronze, deep grey and deep smokey. A mirrored splashback will help to create the illusion of a bigger room by reflecting light and space to the room.
STANDARD GLASS – is your standard type of glass and it has a natural green tint.
No matter what your kitchen style is, Polytech Glass has the right glass for any application, so you can be confident in selecting your glass splashback knowing they are extremely durable, heat resistant and are very easy to clean and maintain.
