C. Production

  1. Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of all information contained within our site. If, for whatever reason, we are unable to fulfil your order we will offer the nearest possible alternative or issue a full refund if payment has already been processed.
  2. All our coloured glass splashbacks are made by back painting coloured glass so (as with tiles) our colours are made in batches. If you intend to place a repeat order you should be aware that there may be a slight colour difference, for this reason we cannot guarantee that the colour will be the same.
  3. Please note that the colours displayed on our colour charts, website are only to be used as a guide. We do not use Dulux or Farrow and Ball paint etc as this paint is not suitable for glass. We cannot guarantee that our paint will match other paint manufacturers, the colour represented on an individual's computer screen or that we can reproduce a colour to a higher than 95% level of accuracy. Reproduction of colour online is as accurate as photographic and electronic processes will allow. Colours appear very differently from computer to computer, both on the screen and when printed with different printers. Colour charts when viewed on the Internet, can only give an approximate indication of the actual colour of the glass. We have printed swatches available to order from the website and also standard colour glass samples that will give a very close match to the real colour.
  4. Due to the variation in the manufacture of glass the colours as shown on the colour chart or sample cannot be guaranteed. Due to the nature of the manufacturing process the colour reproduction might vary from one batch to another or from a sample to the finished product. We cannot also guarantee that the colour chosen will be a perfect match to a back-painted glass made from any other manufacturer when using the same colour code.
  5. The Company will use its reasonable endeavours to match as closely as possible the finished product with the colour chart.
  6. Certain glass types other than low-iron have a higher content of iron in them which causes a green effect that changes slightly the final colour of the colour coat. Please refer to the coloured glass samples for a more accurate indication. The colours on samples are slightly lighter than the finished product as samples allow more light through the edge of the glass thus making the colour lighter.
  7. Paint colour can be distorted by the green tinge due to the presence of iron oxide found naturally in the raw materials used to produce glass. This tint becomes more visible as glass gets thicker. Light colours are most susceptible to this, while the impact is minimal on dark colours. We endeavour to source the best possible quality glass to minimise on this imperfection.
  8. Standard colour glass samples are available to order from our website. Any other colours are made individually and subject to additional charge.
  9. For our metallics splashbacks we use the Ral metallics range. If unsure of the colour we do advise ordering a Ral chart to check before ordering.
  10. Please note that as tablets and computer screens can vary and are backlit the images may appear slightly different in colour or brightness.
  11. For Toughened Glass panels we recommend the following: Gas Hobs: Position a minimum of 60mm from any naked flame. This is measured with a large pan in position and the gas set on high.Electric/ Induction/ Ceramic Hobs: Position a minimum of 100mm from edge of hob to face of glass.
  12. Please note when installing glass panels they should not sit directly on or against any other substance, use packing/distance blocks (wood/plastic) and seal perimeter with a suitable material.It is your responsibility to ensure the right product is used in the right place. Cleaning: All glass should be cleaned regularly and only when it is cold.

  3. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor, edit or remove content that we determine in our sole discretion are unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene or otherwise objectionable or violates any party’s intellectual property or these Terms of Service.

E. Manufacturing & Delivery Time

  1. The following orders will incur additional delivery charge: Deliveries going to outside UK mainland (excluding Northern Ireland). Delivery of larger panels that are either over 20kgs in weight or have one dimension exceeding 1300mm. As a guide one m2 of glass weighs approximately 15kg. If an order is placed online matching one of the above exemptions we will be in touch to inform you if there is an extra additional delivery charge.
  2. Alternatively, please email us and we can quote prior to ordering.
  3. Bespoke products typically take the following time frames from order date:
    Clear Glass (approx. 14-21 Days)
    Coloured Glass (approx. 14-21 Days)
    Printed Glass (approx. 21-24 Days)
    Printed Glass (over and including 90mm x 90mm) (approx. 4-6 weeks)
    This is an estimated time frame NOT a guarantee.
    We'll do our very best to keep you informed, and dispatch your order as quickly as we can. Please note that, due to the bespoke nature of the product, on occasion there can be a delay arising from a quality issue or other unforeseen circumstances.
  4. We are unable to consider any claims of compensation for any such delays. If this happens we will do our best to keep the delay to a minimum.
  5. We will email you through tracking details as soon as it is ready to dispatch, unfortunately we cannot give a precise dispatch date until the order has passed quality control.
  6. Please note that if delivery is missed we will not be liable for any damage or breakage caused to the parcel by the courier. It is therefore in your best interest to make sure that someone can receive delivery - the panels are toughened glass but are still easily damaged.
  7. Also note that once the parcel leaves ourselves you will be responsible for taking delivery of the parcel - if you have not received it within 3 days we would advise you call your local depot and check. If the courier attempts delivery and there is no-one home they will only hold it for a few days before returning the parcel to us - we would then have to charge a re-delivery fee to get the panel back to you.
  8. In accordance with the distance selling regulations, your orders may not be cancelled once payment is received “for the supply of goods made to the consumer’s own specification and measurements. However, we reserve the right to make this decision as we may be able to issue a refund if the manufacturing process has not begun (as mentioned above).
  9. We make every effort to keep our delivery and packing charges as low as possible. The delivery and packing charge depends on the value and type of product ordered.
  10. We do not deliver outside the UK.
  11. We can deliver to addresses within the United Kingdom although for deliveries to non-mainland UK addresses and certain remote locations e.g. Scottish Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands there may be an additional delivery charge and slightly longer delivery lead time. We will advise if there are any additional carriage charges to your order once it has been received by us for processing. In these circumstances, you will not be bound to continue with your purchase, and will be asked to email us to confirm that you wish to proceed.
  12. Goods can be delivered either to most UK business or home addresses with a valid postcode.
  13. Your order will be delivered either by Royal Mail, Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, our own transport or by Courier. A signature is required for all Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, own transport and Courier deliveries. If delivered by a courier the glass will be packed in a box. If delivered by us the glass will be loose with travel pads. In that case it will be tailboard, kerbside, driver only delivery and you are to arrange offloading.
  14. Upon receipt of your order you will be asked to sign for the goods received in good condition. If the package does not appear to be in good condition then please refuse the delivery. If you are unable to check the contents of your delivery at the point of delivery then please sign for the parcel as “UNCHECKED”. Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.
  15. Delivery times are calculated in working days – i.e. Monday to Friday inclusive (working days do not include weekends or National Bank Holidays). In case of Bank Holidays please allow an extra 2 working days. In some cases we can deliver on Saturday or Sunday.
  16. Risk in the goods will pass to you on delivery. Delivery is deemed to have taken place once a signature has been received accepting such delivery.
  17. Goods delivered by courier should arrive between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. All deliveries must be signed for. If you are out when the courier arrives the Courier will leave a card with the contact number for you to call to arrange a suitable time for redelivery. We do everything we can to meet the delivery time specified in this section, however occasionally delivery times may be affected by factors beyond our control and cannot be guaranteed. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay. Online-Glass.co.uk shall have no liability whatsoever for any damages or losses arising directly or indirectly as a result of failed delivery.

F. Refunds & Return Policy

  1. Please check for any visible signs of damage to the packaging of your order before signing for the delivery. Any items damaged in transit should be noted at time of delivery, and if possible delivery should be refused and returned to us. Please contact us as soon as possible to let us know.
  2. If the order has arrived broken, we do not refund the order but will have a replacement with you as soon as possible.
  3. For faults that are not apparent until after opening, you must let us know within 24 hours of receiving the item this can be done by email or phone. We may need you to email us photographic evidence of the fault. We will then decide how best to rectify the fault, where possible we reserve the right to replace the order or repair any defects rather than remaking that particular piece of glass or issuing any form of compensation. When assessing surface faults the panel is to be observed from a distance of 1.5 metres under normal daylight conditions. Angle of observation is to be 90 degrees to the glass surface. i.e. normal incidence. Only marks visible from this distance will be considered. Only marks that are greater than 2mm in length will be considered a defect.
  4. Online-Glass.co.uk accepts NO responsibility for damage or breakages when panels are installed by others and have not been fitted as for our recommendations.
  5. The toughening process will inevitably result in a product whose optical quality is lower than that of a panel from which it was produced. Surface distortion is produced by a reduction in the surface flatness which can be seen particularly in reflection. This can be exacerbated when the glass used is body tinted, or surface coated (including post toughening coating i.e. back painting)
  6. With horizontal toughening due to the directional nature of the process, the distortion may take the form of bands approximately 250/300mm apart.
  7. These distortions can be made more visible by applying a back coating of paint, which will increase as the paint colour becomes darker. Panels with a coating of black paint will reflect these distortions more than a panel with a white painted coating.
  8. Visual Quality (body faults, seeds & bubbles). The number, size and distribution of seeds, bubbles, etc are defined for the glasses under consideration in the appropriate parts of BS952.No change will occur as a result of the toughening process. Assessment of body faults should be undertaken using the method/criteria given for the basic glasses in the appropriate parts of BS952.
  9. A panel is deemed to be acceptable if surface faults, e.g scars, scratches, etc are not readily visible when viewed in transmission. As with surface distortion, should a panel have a coating to 1 side, then any surface faults on that side may become more visible as the colour gets darker. Please note that glass panels that are smaller than 70mm cannot be polished and the edges will not be treated. Bubbles in laminated glass will be deemed to be acceptable provided that they do not exceed 4mm in diameter and spaced more than 250mm in any direction.
  10. Where you have asked us to leave your order in a safe place at your premises or with a friend or neighbour you do so at your own risk.
  11. If the glass is fitted we are unable to consider any claims of damage.
  12. As all our glass splashbacks are made bespoke to your order requirements we do not offer a refund if the order is correct but there has been a change of mind. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a return service for custom made items.
  13. Please note that our coloured and printed glass splashbacks should be adhered with our recommended neutral cure silicone sealant. Other sealants may cause a reaction with the print/paint. Any fault arising with your coloured or printed splashback once on the wall will not be considered if you have not purchased and used the recommended adhesive from our site.
  14. Once you have placed your order online we will check over your order details and send you through a personal confirmation. Orders requiring additional delivery payments or that have been priced incorrectly will be highlighted to you at this time and you will have the option to continue with the additional payment or cancel your order. Please check your email regularly as we will email through any issues that may arise and also when ready for dispatch.
  15. Once you have received this confirmation then your order will go into production.
  16. Your order may be changed at any time up until the manufacturing process has begun, please note as this is a bespoke item there is no option to cancel the order with a full refund once production has commenced. If in mid way production, we can offer a cancellation with a payable fee for the works done so far.
  17. You should be aware that with all toughened glass products, there is a 2mm tolerance. This is due to the toughening process itself where the glass is taken to melting point before being rapidly cooled meaning the size can change a little. If you have carefully followed our measuring instructions this should not be an issue but should your glass not fit due to this reason we cannot be held accountable.
  18. Although the glass may be low iron, there is always an amount of iron in the glass and this can also slightly effect colours coming through the splashback.
