All you need is

  • Sealant gun
  • Tape measure
  • Silicone sealant – use transparent low modular neutral cure silicon
  • 2mm tile spacers

Prior to fitting

We recommend taking your measurements at least twice to be sure they are correct and possibly get someone else to check them.

Allow a 2mm expansion gap between the product and all surfaces, this will be filled with silicone. Ensure that the surface to which the splash back is to be applied is flat, clean and dry and that the paint or print on the rear of the glass has not been scratched during assembly.

 Fitting the splash back;  

To fix the splash back to the wall, carefully line up the splash back, using the tile spacers then apply the glue in lines down the back of the panel following the instructions on the adhesive/sealant to ensure you use the correct amount of sealant per m2 of glass. Once the splash back is in position, you will be able to make minor adjustments to get it right.

When fitting adjacent glass splash backs, make sure you leave a 2mm expansion gap. You can use tile spacers if you wish.

 Once the splash back is in place, seal all edges with the sealant.

Once complete, you can clean off any stubborn marks using fine wire wool.

I appreciate the advice to take the measurements twice before starting on this project. It would really not be good if I applied the glue down the sides and then the panel didn't fit. Now that I have read this I feel a lot more confident about fitting the splash back window by myself. I will start today so that I don't forget!

  •  Hello I recently bought 2 mirrors off of yourself, I'm really pleased with both the price and product, you were by far the cheapest quote from many other glass companies and the delivery was brilliant, the mirrors were used on a bespoke wardrobe install I have just completed for a client of mine, here's a couple of pictures of the finished product..
  • I would like to say that the whole experience in buying from you guys was easy, uncomplicated and very fast. The Gym mirrors are great and very easy to install, delivery driver was very good, obviously knew how to handle the glass carefully and was very helpful, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending yourselves to others.
  • I bought two pieces of glass as shelf tops. They were 'low ion' glass which is crystal clear. They were both cut extremely well and fitted perfectly. The communications with the vendor were fantastic - very very helpful. The delivery cost was a little pricey for small items, although glass clearly needs to be sent safely. Despite that, I would definitely use again.
  • Extremely pleased with the mirror cut to size for my bathroom renovation project. the service, delivery and overall quality of the product was superb. Definitely recommend to all my friends
