Diagram 1 shows the required measuring points for a basic rectangle. It is often the case that the required splashback will not be a perfect rectangle
(ie. It will have to be tapered on one or more sides to accommodate existing kitchen surfaces).
Measurements B and D for example may well vary by a few
mm so please double check measurements to ensure a neat fit. Please also remember to allow an expansion gap where necessary.
Typically sides 1, 2, & 4 will
need to have an allowance of 2mm and side 3 can sit directly on the work surface. If the splashback is not to be fitted between two wall units then no
expansion gap is necessary on sides 2 & 4.
Similarly, if side 1 is not fitted directly under a cooker hood then no expansion gap is required. For any
splashbacks that require a taper or diagonal side, please sketch the required sizes and upload the drawing on our ‘Contact us’ page.
If you are unable to
upload a sketch please send the written measurements and we will email you a sketch for your approval.
