6Mm Spray Painted Normal Glass Backsplash For Kitchen!

Recommended Posts

Dear All

Just want to clarify if it is safe to have 6mm spray painted normal glass as backsplash in my kitchen?

There will be a piece of plywood behind the backsplash.

Does this backsplash able to handle the heat from the cooking stove over time?

My family cook everyday and have family gathering on weekend and more cooking will be done.

Wonder if this 6mm NORMAL GLASS can handle the heat?

If it can't what will happen? Crack? Glass Explosion?

Will the broken glass fly and hurt anyone nearby?

Just worried for my family if I should use this glass or change to TEMPERED GLASS?

Any other material to suggest?

Thanks.

My concern HAD just happened!

The 6mm glass backsplash just CRACKED today while my mum was cooking.

There is a loud sound and a CRACK was found at the bottom of the GLASS near the STOVE.

Lucky no one is hurt during this incident.

My RENO ID told me previously that their supplier will not recommend to use 6mm glass if there is problem.

The glass will most likely to crack if direct heat is use to heat the glass.

Normal cooking usage should not have any problem as it is not direct heat source.

Tempered glass will also crack if direct heat is apply, but it will not shattered & the price is 2 to 3 times more than normal glass.

I see. Did your contractor install very near to your cooking stove? I wonder why it so easy to crack. So now what you going to do? Install another one ?

OMG.

(can't see pic here, blocked by firewall) but enough to make me worry already.

Sigh, should I get it or not now... the tempered glass my ID quoted me was 10mm though. :dunno:

The contractor install the stove, how near is consider near? any dimension for reference? 10cm away? Need to go home measure it.

I guess the only way is to reinstall this glass as it will continue to crack even further since we cook almost everyday.

Already told the reno contractor that we are a heavy user and they still give me this 6mm Glass instead of Tempered Glass.

Lucky the glass only cracked and did not hurt anyone nearby.

Tiler Seng, how do we cook usually?

Switch on the FIRE and cook as usual like what we did in all home.

Is there any special practice for cooking that can prevent this?

Or my STOVE too POWER? hahaha

Oh wait, maybe I did not read the front contain, btw, what we usually practise is to have tempered on stove and non-tempered on other area (to save cost)

The Glass is about 15cm away from the fire stove that cause the Crack.

But if you look at the edge of the cooking hob, it is like 2-3cm away from the Glass.

The cracked glass is still sitting there in my kitchen.
