Another benefit is the minimal amount of joins required when compared to traditional old fashion tiles. Klingshield offers a variety of options when choosing the types of substrates that can be used in the installation of splash backs.



The number one choice is Acrylic Glass for the following reasons:

There is a wide range of striking colours to choose from and if required, can be custom made with a personal design choice or even with company logos. 
The colours are impregnated into the product in the manufacturing process,  unlike glass ones which are normally sprayed into the back.
