Rollings Glass are able to manufacture bespoke glass splashbacks, these splashbacks are cut to shape to suit the contours of your fitted units and electrical points and tap fittings.

Painted Glass Factsheet

• Glass with paint applied to one side
• Glass can be supplied in both toughened and non-toughened
• Painted with a high quality two part resin paint
• Can be colour matched to any RAL or BS number. When colour matching we always recommend low iron glass for a more accurate colour.
• Fixing – Bonded with a high quality mirror adhesive/non aggressive glue (not silicone with acetic acid) or alternatively drill holes for easy removal with decorative coverheads.
• The paint coating is moisture resistant
• Heat resistant:- The advantage of using 6mm toughened glass is it is able to withstand a higher temperature of up to 250°C and a greater temperature difference across the whole panel. If using non-toughened, the glass can withstand temperatures of up to 80°C. Non-toughened glass can break if there is a temperature difference of 30°C or more on the same sheet of glass. For instance, a hot cooking vessel that touches the glass could cause it to break.

Taking into account the above mentioned, we can mix using toughened and non-toughened glass to keep the cost down.

Coloured Glass Kitchen Splashback FAQ

Here are some answer to the common questions about painted glass kitchen splashbacks.

Can a glass splashback be used behind the hob?

Yes, all of our glass splashbacks for use in the kitchen can be made from toughened glass.
The advantage of using 6mm toughened glass is it is able to withstand a higher temperature of up to 250°C and a greater temperature difference across the whole panel.

If using non-toughened, the glass can withstand temperatures of up to 80°C. Non-toughened glass can break if there is a temperature difference of 30°C or more on the same sheet of glass.

For instance, a hot cooking vessel that touches the glass could cause it to break.
Taking into account the above mentioned, we can mix using toughened and non-toughened glass to keep the cost down.

What are the advantages over tiling?

Glass kitchen splashbacks can be made in one single piece so there is no grouting, which makes using a glass splashback easier to clean and more hygienic.

How big can a single glass kitchen splashback be?

We can go to 4.2 metres for a single splashback for toughened painted glass.
Lacobel pre-painted glass can only be up to 3200mm or 3.2m.

Are glass splashbacks only for use in kitchens?

With glass being waterproof, non-porous and very easy to clean, toughened glass splashbacks can be used in bathrooms, wet rooms and shower rooms and cubicles.

Do glass kitchen splashbacks have to be rectangular?

Glass splashbacks can be cut and the edges polished to any shape you care to design. Kitchen glass splashbacks tend to be square because many have cupboards over the worktop.

What about holes for switches and sockets?

No problem - our glass splashbacks are cut to size, holes drilled and cutouts made using the latest glass processing equipment, all controlled by computer to accuracies of fractions of a millimetre. Rollings have invested over £1 million in glass processing machines to make glass splashbacks for your kitchen.

What do I need to start?

A template made from MDF of the exact size with holes & cutouts in or we can work from drawings.
