Can I cut the Lustrolite panel to size?


Absolutely! It can be cut down and worked using general power tools. It can also be cut for plug sockets, shower valves etc. Download the fitting instructions from here for further details and helpful advice.




Can I use Lustrolite behind my kitchen hob?


Yes, it can be installed behind an electric, ceramic or induction hob however we advise that a distance of at least 50mm is required between the hob and the Lustrolite panel. Also additional protection is recommended directly behind hobs to avoid damage to the panels caused by direct contact with hot pans; We recommend the use of our aluminum or colour matched glass hob protector (available in our web store). Please note: Lustrolite is NOT suitable for installation behind a gas hob.




Can I install the product over my existing tiles?


Yes! Just ensure that the surface is as flat as possible and free of any dust or debris.




Can I bend the panel to create a curve?


No. The product needs to be installed on a flat substrate.




My coverage area is larger than the panels shown on your website; do you manufacture wider / taller panels?


Unfortunately we only manufacture the panels in the sizes indicated, however you can install multiple panels next to one another; See the fitting instructions for further information.​




How does Lustrolite compare against glass for wear?


Lustrolite is a unique patented product that has 20x the impact resistance of standard glass and has a hardness of 6H making it a perfect choice for scratch and wear resistance.




Can I use coloured silicone when installing Lustrolite?


Yes, but it must be neutral cure. Check out our web store for colour matched neutral cure silicone options.




Does the wall have to be painted prior to installing Lustrolite panel?


Yes, walls should be sealed or painted otherwise the silicone and tape may not adhere sufficiently.




Can Lustrolite be installed externally?


No, Lustrolite is for internal applications only.




Are expansion gaps required when installing Lustrolite?


Yes, a minimum of 4mm expansion gap is required when Lustrolite panels are joined and where panels meet a bench top, cupboard, wall or other solid surface.




Should Lustrolite be installed on horizontal surfaces?


No, Lustrolite is designed for vertical applications only. Warranty is void if installed in horizontal applications.




How is best to clean Lustrolite?


Use warm soapy water and a soft microfibre cloth.




When do I remove Lustrolite's protective film?


On kitchen and bath panels, remove the rear film just prior to applying the silicone and tape. For all panels, remove the protective film on the face (clear) side once the installation is complete, not beforehand.




Can the Lustrolite glass cooktop splashback be drilled or cut?


No, it is manufactured from toughened glass so therefore cannot be worked.




Can I remove a scratch from Lustrolite?


Lustrolite panels feature a hard coating on the surface, which make them harder to scratch. If these panels are scratched however, repair is generally not possible.
