The quality of the splashback's aesthetics is guaranteed due to the durability and damage resistance inherently found within acrylic; which will not rust as steel splashbacks would, or even tarnish as glass alternatives are prone to doing.
Even when acrylic splashbacks do get dirty or dusty, the ease with which they can be cleaned is outstanding. Requiring nothing more than a wet cloth or sponge, you can be assured that the splashbacks can easily achieve and be kept to the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene.
The simplicity with which these kitchen splashbacks can be maintained is matched only by how easy it is to actually install them in the first place. They are incredibly light so they do not need two people to be lifted, and the actual installation process is so straightforward that it can be done without the slightest bit of DIY experience.
Acrylic has a melting point of 160°C so it should not be placed to close to a hob or other heating elements that are even capable of approaching this temperature. You will be safe to do so however if you cover the acrylic protecting the area with a sheet of glass, as it will act as an effective barrier; or simply ensure that it is a suitable distance (150mm) away from the heat source.
Please be aware that this strikingly vibrant red material needs to be fixed to a blemish-free wall, ideally with a white or light background. Dark blemishes or tape can sometimes show witness marks though the front face of the material.
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.

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.
