The Benefits of Glass Splashbacks

Benefits of Glass Splashbacks

Multipurpose, strong, and stunning glazing option it’s no wonder architects and designers worldwide are using glass splashbacks. As suppliers and installers of safe, durable and immaculate glass solutions, here are some benefits of glass splashbacks.


Glass splashbacks are completely customisable, guaranteeing custom-built kitchen designs. This makes GPO placement and appliance integration a breeze, whilst also opening up other splashback possibilities, including bathroom, laundry and outdoor BBQ areas.


When choosing glass splashbacks, it’s important to consider which design type you’re looking for:

    • Painted Splashbacks

You’ll find that you can achieve just about any coloured glass splashback, ranging from solid to metallic colours, providing you with true design versatility. As a result of the naturally occurring iron oxide found in materials used to produce glass, glass products, including splashbacks, will have a slight green hue. In some cases when using lighter paint colours, this green can impact the splashback’s overall colour. Understanding the importance of preserving design intent, Rapid Glass offers Clear and Ultra Clear options, ensuring clarity and minimising colour distortion by reducing iron levels.

    • Prints and Graphics

Printed glass splashbacks are ideal for achieving that bold, truly unique and breathtaking design statement. From an image of a natural landscape, to a patterned digital design, to an image created to emulate marble or tiled splashbacks — the possibilities are endless.

    • Mirrored Options

During a time where the residential landscape is shifting dramatically towards smaller and more efficient homes, maximising space has never been more important. Mirrored splashbacks work well to enhance a kitchen’s space by magnifying the room’s view and natural light, all through reflection. By creating this sense of space, glass splashbacks assist in encouraging more interactive, open plan living zones.


Glass splashbacks are naturally more durable and resistant to scratches compared to stainless steel and tiled counterparts. On top of that, glass splashbacks are toughened using a series of rigorous heating and cooling processes. Rapid Glass works with a reliable local manufacture to ensure the strongest glass splashbacks are supplied to guarantee efficient installation, as well as safe and lifelong satisfaction for end users.


Unlike tiled options, glass splashbacks are smooth and seamless, resulting in much simpler cleaning and maintenance. In most cases, a microfiber cloth and some water are all you’ll need.


Glass splashbacks can take the heat — literally. When used properly, heat applied to glass splashbacks as a result of cooking will not affect the product — no fading colours or materials, no cracking, warping, blackening, and certainly no impacts to safety.

As our lives are becoming increasingly fast-paced, so is the demand for enhanced building and living materials. Glass splashbacks work well to provide that sense of hassle-free living, all whilst ensuring customisation and tailored design to suit your needs.

Benefits of Double Glazed Glass

benefits of double glazed windows

Double-glazed windows are an ideal energy-efficient choice with the added benefit of minimising noise. The sealed air gap between the two panes acts as an added layer of insulation. This added thermal resistance reduces the amount of heat escaping in winter and keeps your home at a more comfortable temperature.

Everything you need to know about double-glazed windows.

Windows play a large role in the efficiency of your home. But they can also be a big source of unwanted heat gain and loss. As the cost of energy rises, electricity bills become a burden. And, with up to 30-40% of heat energy lost through your windows, improving your windows’ efficiency can reduce energy costs.

What are double-glazed windows and how do they work?

Double-glazed windows are closed units made using two pieces of glass which are separated by an air gap of at least 12mm. The gap is sealed and acts as a break between the inside and outside pieces of glass. The air gap is filled with gas which increases the insulation between the glass pieces. Double-glazed windows are highly efficient, reducing your heat loss or gain by up to 30-40% when compared to single-glazed windows.

Single glazed vs double glazed windows

As its name suggests, a single glazed window is made using one panel of glass. This means the only thing between your home and the outside temperature is a panel of glass which doesn’t give adequate insulation. A single glazed window is not very efficient when it comes to heat loss or gain.

Double glazed windows use two panels of glass with a vacuumed air gap between them which creates an insulated barrier. Double glazed glass is laminated or tinted, but is similar to single glazed window glass otherwise.

What are the benefits?

The most obvious benefit of double glazed windows is the increased thermal efficiency. This means it is easier to maintain the temperature inside your house. This is important if you use air conditioners or central heating or cooling systems. Other benefits include:

  • Energy-efficient
  • Sustainable and environmentally friendly
  • Reduces outdoor noise
  • Durable with low maintenance
  • Increases the value of your house
  • Less condensation on your windows

The final word

The cost of installing double glazed windows is higher than single glazed windows. But they will pay for themselves with lower energy costs and a positive environmental impact. With so much to gain, these windows are the obvious choice for your house.

5 Tips – Choose The Perfect Shower Screen

5 Tips to Choose the Perfect Shower Screen | Rapid Glass

If you’re undergoing a bathroom renovation, no doubt you’re thinking of getting a shower screen installed. Shower screens are high utility items which can keep your bathroom clean and hygienic. They are also elegant to look at and far better than cheap shower curtains.

However, there are some areas to consider when shopping for shower screens in Perth. Is your main priority design and aesthetics? Functionality or perhaps its ease of access?

1. Consider your budget

While most of our shower screens are affordable, the range of prices can vary significantly elsewhere in the market.

Of course, whatever your budget may be, you must never compromise on quality. There is no use choosing something cheap and then spending thousands on fixing problems later on. If you’re looking for something really affordable, yet of high quality, consider a Semi Frameless Shower Screen.

2. Consider your bathroom size and space available

Once you have your budget determined, you should next consider the available space and size of your bathroom. For this, you will need to take measurements of your shower space and also the area around it.

If you have a small shower space, you should opt for a Frameless Shower Screen with clear glass. Such shower screens do not have unnecessary attachments and can easily fit into compact spaces. Also, the clear glass will allow light to pass through, making your bathroom appear larger.

If space is not a constraint, you can go for either Frameless or Semi-Frameless shower screens with patterned or frosted glass. Patterned or frosted glass will not affect the proportion of large bathrooms.

Also, when shopping for shower screens in Perth, consider the shape of the screen. This will depend on the size of your bathroom. Shower screens with sliding doors are the best for small spaces, as they are easily accessible. Pivoted and hinged doors are a practical solution for a standard bathroom size and will provide years trouble free operation.

3. Choose high-quality glass

An important thing that I mention to all customers is to always choose high-quality glass that meets Australian Safety Standards. You really don’t want any accidents to happen in your bathroom, especially if you have kids.

All our shower screens are made from toughened safety glass which meets AS2208 standards of safety. This type of glass will not crack or break, even when considerable force is applied to it. By choosing our quality shower screens, you can make your bathroom safer for your family.

Rapid Glass shower screens are perfectly measured and custom made to accommodate your tiling, bathroom shapes, out of square/level walls and flooring. So yes, you can buy a shower screen from Bunning’s for a cheaper price and try to install yourself or pay someone to install for you; whereas we can custom make, install and provide warranty for nearly the same price! Unless your bathroom is perfectly square and level a pre-fabricated shower screen will not fit properly, in addition a majority of these products are of a very poor quality – have you not noticed the ones on display are usually broken……this in turn will only require the job to be redone, by a professional.

4. Choose something that’s easy to maintain

When shopping for a new shower screen, you must choose something that’s easy to maintain. This means that the glass should be accessible at all places and easy to clean.

Note clear glass is easier to maintain than frosted or patterned glass. Also, Frameless screens are easier to clean than framed or Semi-Frameless ones, as they are free of any fixtures or tiny areas.

5. Call in the experts

While this may seem like a no-brainer, many homeowners select and install shower screens on their own. Do not make this mistake – take advice from someone who has! Installing shower screens takes a significant amount of skill. If things go wrong, it becomes a costly and more importantly, a dangerous affair.

Call upon a glazier to help you choose and install your shower screen. Rapid Glass can help select the right shower screen for your bathroom and assist with the installation.

When you’re looking for your new shower screen you need to make a few considerations to ensure you end up with the solution best for your bathroom. First of all, you must determine your budget and select a shower screen that fits in. Next up, consider the size and space of your bathroom – this will determine the type of screen to go for. Always ensure it features high-quality glass and will be easy to maintain. Finally, do not hesitate to seek expert help in selecting and installing your shower screens.

We have a wide range of shower screens including Frameless, Semi-Frameless and Framed models. Whatever style, size and budget you may have, we have something that will work for you.

EnduroShield – Reduces Cleaning Time


EnduroShield is an after market easy clean protective coating that creates an ultra-long lasting invisible shield on all glass, ceramic tiles, grout, stainless steel, and chrome surfaces. It protects against staining, together with inhibiting the build-up and etching caused by products such as soap scum, body oils, lime scale, dirt, grime, salt and chlorine spray.

It works by adhering to the surface and providing a protective layer that will repel both water and oil based stains. Similar to a non-stick fry pan, cleaning is made easier using only water and a mild detergent or with a microfiber cloth. No longer is scrubbing with harsh toxic cleaners needed.

EnduroShield makes cleaning a breeze. The superior protection also helps prevent the build-up of mould and harmful bacteria, promoting a germ free environment. Remember untreated glass is porous and as a result absorbs mineral deposits and soap scum, making it very difficult to clean. EnduroShield can be applied to all new or existing bathroom surfaces – we highly recommend it for all new glass shower screens

This super product is easy to apply and can be done by Rapid Glass who is a certified applicator so feel free to ask about this product when you order a Shower Screen.

Thereafter cleaning is made easier using only a microfiber cloth with water and a mild detergent or white vinegar.
