Easy to clean luxury acrylic splashbacks

Made from 5mm Clear Acrylic and back painted to match any paint colour range.

Ideal for use in Kitchens, Bathrooms and Interiors- can be cut to size using DIY tools

Heat resistance

Acrylic splashbacks CAN be used as a cooker splashback but they must be a certain distance from the heat source. The minimum distance between you hob and the acrylic splashback is as follows:

Induction, Ceramic and Electric hobs: 6cm/60mm/2.5 inches

Gas hobs: 20cm/200mm/8 inches

Hot pots and pans cannot come into contact with acrylic sheet for a prolonged period of time as this was damage the panels.

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)


Coloured Acrylic Splashbacks when back painted look very similar to glass splashbacks (certain colours may look a shade lighter or darker, low iron glass is used and this may show on lighter colours)*, therefore they are perhaps the ultimate DIY Splashback. Although they are not as heat resistant as a coloured glass splashback behind a kitchen hob they can be used so long as they are in accordance with the above heat resistant guide. Alternatively if you would prefer more resistance to heat you can use a coloured matched glass splashback at that point and carry on with acrylic beside this.

* low iron glass has a lower iron content than float glass, acrylic has zero iron content, so lighter colours may be a shade different.

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

Cutting acrylic

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 simply order a rectangular sheet and cut it to size or around sockets on site. Toughened glass cannot be cut once manufactured.

Order times and delivery

The lead time on coloured acrylic splashbacks is 2-3 weeks during busy periods.

Acrylic paint colours

As with our glass splashbacks, we can colour match any paint range or colour and also colour match to a swatch if you wish. We cannot use the actual branded paint colours as we must use specialist paint to be able to guarantee our paint finishes on the rear of the acrylic for 5 years. Normal emulsion would not correctly adhere to the acrylic. For this reason we use paint formulas that are coloured matched. Generally, our colours are highly accurate but we have of course made the odd mistake but with in excess of 50,000 orders dispatched the margin of error is well under 1%. Our QA team do of course check items prior to dispatch based on the paint suppliers colour swatches but again, a very small number may fall through the net. If this happens we will of course work with you to resolve any issues but we strongly advise you order a sample here.
