Glass Splashbacks – Your Questions Answered

Can glass splashbacks go behind a gas hob?

The answer is yes. When toughened, glass is heat resistant to up to 400’C so is completely safe to use behind a gas hob. This also applies to mirror and printed splashback.

Does glass need to be toughened to go behind an induction hob?

No. Due to the fact that induction hobs transfer their heat directly to the pan, untoughened glass is perfectly safe to use.

At Crystal Clear we always use quality toughened glass as standard on our back painted and digitally printed splashbacks to ensure the highest quality as standard.

Do splashbacks have to be toughened?

The simple answer is no. As long as it is not behind a gas hob, a bathroom or kitchen splashback does not need to be toughened. Despite this, we recommend for added quality and safety that you choose a toughened splashback over a cheaper option.

What splashback mirror options are available?

We can supply plain silver mirror, pink, blue, bronze and grey. We also supply bronze and grey antique mirror effects.

What colour splashback can I have?

Thanks to our in-house paint mixing system we can colour match most colours, even those from your favourite paint brands eg Dulux, Crown and Farrow and Ball.

You also have the option to add effects such as glitter, fleck, water droplet and metallics.
