Step by Step Instructions

1 Prepare to install the stainless steel splashback
2 Install the stainless steel splashback
  • Step 1. Prepare to install the stainless steel splashback

    Make sure the splashback is the right width for your cooktop. If you need to install it onto tiles, check that the tiles are level and set at the same height as your splashback. Now remove the protective covering and apply beads of silicone every 100mm along the back of the splashback. 
  • Step 2. Install the stainless steel splashback

    Position the splashback on the wall. In this case, we are hooking the top lip of our splashback over the top of the tiles. Then wedge some packers under the base of the splashback to hold it tightly against the wall while the silicone dries. Finish the job by wiping the surface clean with a rag.
