Immensely popular and easy to install, acrylic splashbacks require very little maintenance and will always retain their vivid colour clarity; ensuring their constant appeal.
Acrylic is a solid, durable and versatile plastic, with a damage resistance over 10 times that of glass. It also requires very little care, as any dirt or mess that gets on it can be easily cleaned with little more than a damp cloth; though under no circumstances should a rough sponge be used, as it will scratch the splashback and ruin its amber colouring.
Inherently hygienic, being so easy to clean makes acrylic even more so, allowing it to excel in busy kitchens that are used often for baking, preparing elaborate feasts, or even just day to day cooking.
As well as being highly functional, acrylic splashbacks can be adapted to suit the style of any home due to the wide selection of colours in which they are available, in addition to their sparkling glossy finish. To top things off acrylic does not tarnish or rust as glass or steel splashbacks eventually would, so they will keep their stunning looks well into the future.
Best kept away from high temperatures, if you intend to place an acrylic splashback near a hob it is necessary for you to ensure that it is a good distance away from it or that a sheet of glass is put in place to act as a barrier between the acrylic and the heat source.
This amber splashback is made using translucent acrylic, which will allow a certain amount of light diffusion in order to create a level of depth that will stand out in any kitchen.
Please Note: We recommend all acrylic splashbacks are not installed closer than 150mm to an open heat source such as a gas/electric hob.
NB: The Amber Translucent Cast Acrylic Kitchen Splashback may require a longer lead time than other products and any bespoke cutting (e.g socket cut outs or diagramed work) will incur an extra cost. For any advice or to discuss customisation options, please call or email our sales team with any cutting list applicable.

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.
