What is the returns policy?

Custom Size Products

Custom made items are exempt from the returns and cancellation policy which is stated on the Distance Selling Regulations. Because the items are made to the specifications of the consumer and therefore changing the size of the standard sizing products they are unable to be refunded.

Due to the process of which the order has to be processed, if the item is a custom made product then this is also exempt from the Distant Selling Regulations and once the order has been placed it cannot be cancelled.

When ordering custom sized products, the measurements and colours must be checked and doubled checked and the customer are obliged to agree to their specifications they have imputed via a pre-contractual contract. If they do not agree to the contract then the order is unable to process.

Standard Size Products and Accessories

If you wish to cancel your order you have 10 working days after you have received your goods to cancel. After the 10 working days you cannot cancel as this information was stated in the pre-contractual contract of which was agreed before the purchase.

Returning the products; when returning the products, the product must be packaged back with the original packaging, unless discarded, and safely packaged due to the nature of the material. The product can be opened and viewed by the customer; it must return in the same condition that the customer received the product. If the product is returned to the company in a damaged state which was not stated when the customer opted to return the goods then the customer is liable.

When returning the products the customer is liable to pay for the postage of the products. We have recommended couriers. When you turn the item you will be refunded the full amount of the products returned and the packaging.

What is a ‘RAL’ colour code and where can I get one?

A RAL colour code is the code given to colours. You can find them on paint samples and colour codes from most major brands. The RAL code ensures the closest possible match to the colour you choose. You can find RAL colour codes on most colour samples and colour cards from DIY and home stores. Please be aware when typing in a RAL code that it is exactly the code you wish to input.

Will the colour of the splashback be exact?

The RAL colour code, if you wish to choose a custom colour, will give the closest match to your chosen colour. If you choose a standard colour, please be aware that different computer screens have different resolutions and therefore might display the colour in a different shade. UK Glass Centre endeavours to supply accurate images of the colours and products and therefore are not liable for the change of colour due to the screen resolution.

How is the glass and mirror cut/drilled/bevelled?

The glass and mirror is processed on a CNC processor. UK Glass Centre uses the state of the art technology and machinery to give the highest quality results. If you are ordering toughened glass this process is done before the toughening process as once glass is toughened in no way can the glass be cut, drilled or bevelled.

What should the condition of the wall be in for me to attach the splashback/glass shelf/mirror?

The wall should be clean, dry with any bumps in the wall being sanded away to keep the wall flat.

How do I install a splashback?

If installing a coloured glass splashback you will need to use adhesive and a gun to apply it to the wall. Always seal the edges of a coloured glass splashback with the same silicone. If installing a clear glass splashback which has 4 holes then you will need a pencil to trace the holes, wall plugs to secure the holes and a drill along with a flat head screw driver. Please note you cannot fix a clear splashback with adhesive, as the adhesive will be visible from behind the glass.

Is it ok to use the glass and mirrored products in wet environments such as bathrooms/steam rooms?

Yes, however the edges of the glass and mirror must be sealed to ensure that no moisture seeps behind the product.

What is low iron glass?

Low iron glass has a whiter appearance than clear glass where this has a greener appearance. By lowering the iron in the glass the glass becomes a clearer colour offering a higher degree of transparency. Low iron glass is a great solution for using coloured/painted glass, glass screens, doors and shower screens as it is clearer and more translucent therefore giving a truer colour of the painted glass and background.

Is the glass safe?

The glass products we supply at UK Glass Centre will be mainly toughened glass. We use EN 12150 compliant toughened glass, being toughened if the glass smashes it will go into small fragments rather than large pieces to minimalize risk of injury. Our glass products come with polished edges making the glass safe to handle.

What if the items are delivered damaged?

If the items are damaged upon arrival, there will be an email address and telephone number for you to contact us on, we will then arrange the item to be picked up at your convenience. We will cover the cost of the courier and offer you a replacement or a full refund.

What measurements do I need to use when creating a custom design?
