Q: Is our glass transparent or opaque?

A: We can install our coloured glass on most surfaces that are reasonably level with no hi spots sticking out; this includes walls made from render, plaster, plasterboard, and repaired walls etc.
Q: Is coloured glass safe?
A: Yes! Our coloured glass is suited for most conditions such as moist and heat areas, as it is toughened safety glass, (known as tempered glass) which is certified to meet Australian Standards AS1288/1994 and AS2047/1999 for use in domestic and commercial settings.
Q: Can I have power points or light switch’s in the glass?
A: Yes! This is no problem; as this is taken into account when we measure to allow for cutouts in the glass, ensure these are all fitted in walls prior to check measuring.

A: For a kitchen splashback this is ready when all cabinetry are installed, including overhead cupboards, bench tops, power points, switches, architraves, stoves and all fittings where the coloured glass is going to be installed.
Q: Can I have coloured glass behind my range hood canopy?
A: Yes! The range hood needs to be pre-fitted and fixing points need to be installed or marked out, also pre-fitting of ducting or marking out is necessary. The coloured glass gets installed first and then the range hood canopy.
Q: How is the coloured glass installed to the walls?
A: The coloured glass is installed using Strong industrial adhesives. The perimeters are sealed all the way around, making it completely sealed.
Q: Is it a tidy installation?
A: Yes! All manufacturing is carried out in the factory, making for a clean and quick installation on site.
Q: How long does it take to manufacture my glass?
A: Manufacturing time is 12-15 working days on average from final measure, and a few days longer for complex shapes.
Q: How do I care for my coloured glass?
A: We recommend for best results to use a streak free glass cleaner with a good quality paper towel or lint free cloth. Avoid abrasive harsh cleaners, scouring pads or steel wool; also avoid the use of spirits or solvents to clean the glass. Applying Enduro Shield will also make the cleaning easier.
