Unfitted glass is fragile. Do not place on hard surfaces prior to fitting. Special care should be taken with the corners of the product as impact will cause the product to crack.
To prevent product failures ensure that:
All fitting steps are completed.
A space of at least 2mm is left between the product and all surfaces.
The gaps must be filled with silicone.
The surface to which the product is applied is flat, variations in level in excess of 5mm should be packed with silicone prior to fitting.
You do not use any form of adhesive other than silicone as certain adhesives will degrade the finish of the glass.
Glass can be cut by a suitably experienced professional. Specialist glass cutting tools should be used.
Glass must not be cut into pieces of less than 30mm wide neither should less than 30mm be trimmed from the splash back when cutting to size.
SAFE HANDLING OF GLASS
All products are supplied with a safety backing but we recommend that glass is handled with care and in particular eye protection and suitable gloves should be worn.
Do not use abrasive cleaners. For the best results use:
Hot water with a mild soap detergent.
