As practical as they are pleasing to the eye, these splashbacks are incredibly durable and have a vibrant colour that will never tarnish or fade.
Acrylic has many beneficial qualities, one of which being the difficulty with which the material can become stained, and the ease with which it can be cleaned when it does. Dust and dirt does not adhere to acrylic as readily as they would to steel or glass (which are other prominent splashback materials). Even when they do, they can be removed easily, by nothing more than a slightly moistened cloth.
It is important that you do not use a scourer or rough sponge to clean these splashbacks, as they will scratch the acrylic and impact upon the colour clarity and gloss finish.
Additionally, if these splashbacks are placed less than 150mm away from a hob or other heat source, a layer of glass should be placed between it and the heating element; to protect it and prevent the acrylic from burning or becoming soft.
Overall acrylic is a very hygienic option, as in addition to being easy to clean, it is highly water resistant and does not encourage the growth of bacteria. It also cannot break in the same way glass can, so it is safe to have in a house with children and pets.
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.

This was just what we wanted for the kitchen. Easy to cut out the socket hole with the jigsaw, not as fragile as I thought it would be. Pleased with the results. Quick delivery, well packaged. Thanks

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.
