Can printed splashbacks work for large developments?
This is major dilemma faced by many large projects.
Your high quality apartments and homes deserve high quality features and finishes. However when the estimator and builder comes in, many of the most stunning features get taken out. And one of the most desirable features is a printed splashback and wall feature in a shower or in a kitchen. Perhaps even under the kitchen bench.
They’ve been very popular on the renovation TV shows. And you know your buyers will jump at such an amazing feature. However, there’s always been that one problem; the cost. Printing on glass is expensive. Hideously expensive.
The good news is there is an alternative.
Now you can get a printed splashback produced from acrylic instead of glass. And it looks exactly the same. Now, you might be wondering...isn’t glass superior to acrylic? Actually, no it isn't.
Some acrylics are clearer than glass, such as the acrylic used by Innovative Splashbacks. It’s optically clear, which means it’s as clear as eye-glasses. And it doesn’t have the green tinge you get with glass splashbacks. They are also far less expensive because the process used is far simpler, not to mention that it uses significantly less resources. And it’s actually far more effective.
Just think about it...glass and acrylic were designed for very specific purposes. But printing isn’t one of them. Which is why the company uses a specialized surface designed just for high definition printing. It’s the reason they create such sharp, crisp images, EXACTLY like printed glass.
Second, acrylic is a lot easier to work with than glass. It’s half the weight and 25 times stronger, making installation a breeze.
Glass splashbacks are easy to break. With acrylic splashbacks you wont have a heart attack if the kids tap the fruit bowl into the splashback – you are not going to see thousands of dollars worth of splashback in a gazillion little pieces all over your benchtop! And it has a small amount of flex in it which makes it easy to work with.
If you want the EXACT look of glass make sure it’s high quality cast PMMA acrylic and NOT any of the other inferior types of acrylics or polymers (such as high gloss PVC/Vinyl). Because these inferior acrylics and polymers have way to much flex. Plus they don’t look identical to glass no matter how much they say they do!
Whereas cast PMMA acrylic sits straight against a wall, other acrylics and polymers are more flexible and ‘bendy’ which means they can hug a wall, mirroring any imperfections.
Innovative Splashbacks use a world renowned brand of acrylic (cast PMMA) which has over 80 years of proven and trusted worldwide use. This acrylic is the best polymer/acrylic on the world market, envied and used in both residential and commercial applications ranging from aircraft windows and windscreens, commercial aquariums, glazing in place of glass, ice hockey protection screens to even bone cement.
