Sturdy, durable and completely waterproof, acrylic is the perfect splashback material; made better still by its low-upkeep and the enduring quality of its colour.
Acrylic as a material is renowned for being damage resistant and easy to maintain. Any dust or grease that does manage to get on it can be easily wiped away with a cloth or some kitchen towel; unlike alternative splashback materials, such as steel, which are notorious for being difficult to clean.
Extremely popular and growing ever more so, acrylic splashbacks are available in a range of different colours, augmented by their stunning gloss finish. These aesthetic features allow the splashbacks to blend in with any style of décor effortlessly, making them an ideal addition to any kitchen or even bathroom.
In addition to these long-term benefits, acrylic splashbacks are extremely light and the installation process is incredibly simple and straightforward; to the point that you will not need to be a DIY aficionado to get the job done.
When cleaning acrylic it is important to use a soft cloth, as acrylic can become tarnished and scratched if something like a Brillo Pad or wire sponge is used.
Acrylic splashbacks can be easily fitted, without the need for professional help, directly to almost any flat surface using our versatile and durable double sided PE foam tape. Check out our splashback fitting guide to see just how easy it is to fit splashbacks yourself.
Please Note: We recommend all acrylic splashbacks are not installed closer than 150mm to an open heat source such as a gas/electric hob.

great colour, easy to fit. Slightly disappointed at delivery time having paid to be delivered in 2 days but took 4. Thankfully, it came before my kitchen fitter finished for the week.

We took a while to decide whether to go with tiles or acrylic for our splashback, fearing acrylic would be difficult to install to a high standard for an amateur DIYer. Such fears were unfounded. T...

Q. Is acrylic sheeting suitable for use as a splashback behind a hob or oven?
A: No. Temperatures of over 60°C will affect acrylic, so it is not suitable for use in close proximity to heatsources. A popular solution is to protect the acrylic splashback directly behind the heat source with a sheet of toughened glass.
Q. If I do want to use it near a heat source, what is a suitable distance?
A: While we insist that acrylic is not suitable as a splashback behind a heat source, if you do wish to use behind a heat source it's recommended that one metre clearance is allowed.
Q. How do I clean my acrylic kitchen splashback?
A: Acrylic is incredibly easy to wipe clean and keep in a good condition. Just use a soft, non-abrasive, anti-static cloth, along with a mixture of washing up liquid and water. If you wish to use cleaning products, please check that they are suitable for the material first.
Q. How do I fix my acrylic splashback to the wall?
A: Acrylic panels can simply be fixed to the wall with screws, and you can order your sheet with pre-drilled holes from our site. If you wish to drill the holes yourself, you can follow our 'how to drill acrylic' guide.
