How to Install

1

Clean

Ensure the area is smooth, clean and dry.
You can use alcohol wipes to clean the area prior to installation.

2

Measure

Measure the area DesignerSplash is going to cover. Make sure that you include any PowerPoints (if applicable).
Mark the measurements on the reverse side of the panel.
Note: If any electrical works are to be performed, this should be carried out by a certified electrician.
If you have an electrical or induction hob, we recommend that you allow a 20mm minimum set back from the rear edge of the cook top to the surface of DesignerSplash. If you have a gas cook top ensure there is a 110mm minimum clearance between the naked flames (i.e. edge of the burner) to the surface of DesignerSplash.
Where more than one panel is needed to cover the length required, for a silicon join, please allow for a 3mm gap or please use our anodised finish joiners.

Cut

Make sure that you are working on the reserve side of the panel. Cut your panels using a circular saw (with aluminium cutting blades).
For PowerPoints, use a drill for the corners, then use a jigsaw to cut out the edges.

4

Fix

Test the positioning by applying the panel against the area without using any bonding materials. Once satisfied, remove protective masking on the reverse side. Apply double-sided tape on the area in vertical strips, 400mm apart. Then for fixing DesignerSplash onto GIB board, apply Den Braven Hybrifix or other MS Neutral Cure Silicone Adhesive with a caulking gun in a zig-zag pattern between the vertical strips of double-sided tape. Or for concrete block/tiles/glass/stainless steel use Den Braven High Tack or Sikaflex 11FC or Holdfast HG MS

Install

Apply the DesignerSplash panel onto the area.
Leave for a few minutes before carefully removing the protective masking on the front side To ensure a clean finish, apply masking tape around the 3mm gaps where silicone is required to be filled.
Then apply sealant into the 3mm gaps between DesignerSplash panels and other edges to avoid any water infiltration.

 

Electrical Earthing

DesignerSplash has an aluminium face, which is conductive to electricity. In situations where there is any kind of power point, an earth connection must be made.
We recommend that the installation of the earthing be carried out by a registered electrician.
