Easy to clean luxury acrylic splashbacks
Made from 5mm Clear Acrylic.
Ideal for use in Kitchens, Bathrooms and Interiors- can be cut to size using DIY tools
Acrylic splashbacks cannot be used as a hob splashback.
For DIY kitchen splashbacks that are closer to the heat source we recommend a glass splashback behind your hob/heat source with colour matched acrylic splashbacks for the remaining walls (or of course glass)

Acrylic is easier to scratch than glass and should be cleaned with a high quality microfibre cloth and soapy water only. Do not use chemicals or any abrasive cloth. Glass you can clean with wire wool. Scratch resistance and cleaning
*use HSS drill and jigsaw bits (when drilling start with the smallest bit, 3mm probably, and work your way up)
As well as looking exactly like glass when both back painted and sitting side by side, Acrylic is also very easy to cut* as it is just a hard plastic. This means you do not have to worry about getting your measurements exactly right when ordering, you can order a rectangular sheet and cut it to size or around sockets on site. Toughened glass cannot be cut once manufactured.
*Please note that while it is easy to cut and drill acrylic like any product that can be cut it is also possible to crack or chip it (this is the same with tiles, glass, wood and other forms of plastic). If you or your fitter does not have experience fabricating acrylic please read up on best practices for working with acrylic. Whilst the vast majority of our customers are able to cut and drill our products without issue some customers have had issues due to using the wrong tools etc. For this reason we do also offer a cutting and drilling service and we can fully fabricate your order for you (at an additional cost) which will remove all responsibility from you.
