Q : Can they be installed behind the range or stove ?
A : You can use them behind the range without any worries. The Backsplash tiles are resistant to heat as well as cooking splashes. For gas ranges without a back control panel or metal lid, keep a safety zone of 15 inches (vertically) on the back wall to prevent any direct exposure to an open flame. We recommend the use of a stainless steel panel to fill that area. For other cooking devices such as counter ovens, toaster ovens and others, keep a distance of 2 inches between wall and device.
Q : Will they stay in place in spite of the humidity ?
A : Once they have been properly installed, the Backsplash tiles are as stable as conventional glass tiles and will resist the normal humidity level.
Q : Can they be installed in the shower ?
A : Although they are humidity resistant, it is NOT recommended to cover the interior of a shower. Exposure and direct contact with water, over a long period of time, might attenuate the adherence of the product.

A : Nothing could be more easy! All you need is a standard box cutter to cut and shape them to cover even the most tricky areas. Furthermore, you can even pierce them with nails or screws should you wish to install a shelf, frame or towel holder for example.
Q : Are they easy to clean ?
A : A simple sponge is all you need to give them back their original shine. For tough stains, use a mild cleaning product with no abrasive agents.
Q : Can they be easily removed ?
A : Should you need to remove them, simply use a hair dryer to heat up the surface and gently remove the tiles starting with the corners.
Q : Can I use them for a counter top or as a table mat ?
A : Although they are very resistant, the Backsplash tiles have not been developed for that purpose and therefore should NOT be used as a counter top. However, they can be used to give a touch of style to an old night table or wooden chest for example. Leave it up to your imagination…
