Hayball Turns to Innovative Splashbacks for University Science Labs

08 Mar 2023 by Innovative Splashbacks

Materials are changing so quickly that many of industry’s sacred cows have been slaughtered and laid to rest. 

Once a standard in the architects toolkit, glass splashbacks are now under pressure from acrylic.

Recently Hayball, one of the world’s top 100 architects chose acrylic splashbacks for the science labs in a major university.

They knew a university science lab would get a serious workout. And the needed a material which was tough, easy to maintain and impossible to tell apart from glass.

In recent years higher quality acrylics have been used as splashbacks. The acrylic used by Innovative Splashbacks® is Plexiglas®. It’s the world’s oldest and highest quality acrylic. It’s almost impossible to tell the difference from glass and was developed back in 1928 as the glass alternative and is revered and used worldwide ever since.

Better still it was faster to install since a glazier wasn’t required. The installation was done quickly by the onsite carpenters. And this is also often performed by plumbers, handymen and DIY renovators.

The money saved on the installation was added to the savings made on the purchase, making it a financial win for their client. 

Any adjustments to panels can be made onsite with standard woodworking tools. And if extra panels were required they would be on-site in days, not weeks.

Also, delivery dates were guaranteed and locked in stone. Innovative Splashbacks® offers a 5% discount per day in the unlikely event they are late. Which meant the builder could schedule their works in, knowing the product would be on-site exactly when promised.

It was the perfect solution for a project with a tight deadline which demanded a high quality finish.

The Innovative Splashbacks Journey It all started with a renovation! Husband and wife Hugh and Elli were renovating their home and searched high and low for options for their shower and kitchen walls. After being forced to tile their kitchen and shower, they realised thousands of people just like them were being let down. They didn’t like tiles and grout. Yet glass was out of their budget. Elli in particular didn't want to pay big bucks for glass splashbacks that could break even after installation. Having a young family, they were mindful of needing something durable. They even saw acrylic in the ‘big box’ hardware stores but were disappointed by the lack of colour choices and the quality. And they didn’t want to have to cut it themselves. This however it sparked an idea. What if they could produce a high quality acrylic splashback which looked identical to glass and was cut to size in any colour or design people wanted? Innovative Splashbacks is a unique combination of high quality European acrylic, painted in-house in any colour people want. They even offer metallic and pearlescent colours as well as digital prints. Better still they are cut to size, exactly as their clients require it. They are proudly the first in Australia to supply printed acrylic splashbacks, which remain the highest quality available in Australia. They are the first to be officially certified as Australian Made. And are the first to offer an in-house interior design service to help you choose colours and/or images. Today Innovative Splashbacks supply a range of clients from DIY renovators to joiners and many of Australia’s leading builders and architects for both residential and commercial projects.
