Suited for use behind any type of cooker and for wall coverings in your kitchen and bathroom.
RAL 7001 Glass Splashbacks
We use a fully digital colour mixing system that enables us to match any RAL paint colour with a very high degree of accuracy. (We do not use actual RAL paint as it is not suitable for glass. Our system can provide indistinguishable colour matches.
With lots of RAL colours to choose from, picking a RAL colour for your custom splashback is easy. Browse or search our website to see our range, or drop into a decorating store for inspiration.
We offer a sample product to help you see your colour on glass. To order a RAL 7001 glass splashback sample please click here
RAL 7001 Glass Upstands
Your glass upstands will be cut to your specific size and produced as toughened glass. Please be aware that toughened glass cannot be cut so it is important to measure accurately.
Glass upstands are usually 100mm - 150mm tall. They are fitted in the same way as a splashback. Upstands add a touch of colour along with more practical wall protection.
Measuring for your glass upstands is easy.
1) Measure from your cooker splashback to the nearest wall or cabinet and deduct 2mm for expansion.
2) If another upstand is to meet this upstand at a corner deduct the glass thickness + 4mm (so subtract 10mm for 6mm glass)
Choosing the right RAL colour for your kitchen or bathroom
If you have not decided on the colour for your walls or cabinets then that may be the best place to start. Would you like your RAL 7001 Splashbacks to complement or contrast your walls for example?
Some tips on chosing the right coloured splashback for your kitchen or bathroom.
- Consider the lighting in your room.
- Test colours with sample pots
- Like paint, our splashbacks can be made in matte (brushed) or gloss finishes.
- What mood are you trying to create?
- Consider the colour of your kitchen units
Complete wall coverage
Like tiles, glass splashbacks can be cut and shaped around electrical outlets or plug sockets. They can then protect your walls around switches just as tiles do.
This image shows two RAL 7001 glass splashbacks meeting in a corner, under your kitchen cabinets.
Measuring for full wall glass splashbacks is a little bit more involved than with upstands, however the fundamentals are the same. You can find further instructions on how to measure for plug sockets etc... in the tutorials section of our website.
