Acrylic is a strong and durable material that can stand up to the wear and tear it might receive in the kitchen.
Extruded acrylic is easy to care for and keep in good condition. It will be less susceptible to dust and grease, something glass and stainless steel splashbacks struggle to achieve. And when it does get marked or slightly dusty, it is simple to clean with a wet cloth.
Something that is incredibly important in the kitchen is hygiene, and acrylic offers an extremely hygienic option. It is also water resistant and can be used behind hobs, as long as it is protected by glass or positioned at a suitable distance of 200mm or more.
Along with the above benefits, acrylic splashbacks are lightweight and incredibly easy to install at home. This means that those with a limited knowledge of DIY will be able to fit them quickly and easily to create a new look in the kitchen.
Fitting 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. We recommend all acrylic splashbacks are not installed closer than 200mm to an open heat source such as a gas/electric hob.
Please Note: 3mm and 5mm white acrylic is extruded and 10mm white acrylic is cast.
