A backsplash application requires 6" patterns to accommodate a typical 18" height backsplash. The Nailup panel is used for this application. A construction adhesive like Liquid Nails and/or AcrylPro is commonly used to adhere the panels to the wall.
Properly finished backsplash tin can be cleaned using a mild detergent and water. The traditional Nailup tin panels are used for wall applications. The Nailup tin panel has a 1/4" overlapping nail flange by which all of the corresponding panels overlap each other. This makes for a cleaner installation and produces the appearance of a somewhat seamless aesthetic. Because the average height of a backsplash is only 18", the 6 pattern is most often used for backsplash applications, as the smaller pattern provides a better aesthetic fill. With the standard 24" sized tin nailup panel, you'll need to cut the top quarter of the panel to fit in the 18" wall height between the countertop and the cabinet. Using a 6" pattern will provide a 3 pattern vertical repeat, where as using a 12" pattern will only provide a 1-1/2 pattern vertical repeat. The panels are commonly cut with a standard tin snips. A factory edge of the tin should sit on the countertop. The top of the panel should be trimmed to fit flush against the cabinet. Most construction adhesives like Liquid Nails® or AcrylPro® will adhere the panels to the wall. A small decorative wood molding is generally used to cover the outside edges. Caulk is commonly used where the factory edge of the tin meets the countertop. Where the top trimmed piece of tin meets the cabinets, a small beveled molding can be used, but because this edge is not normally visible, this edge can be left untrimmed. The.010 tin plated steel has a fire rating of over 1300 degrees fahrenheit. Our powdercoat finishes are cured at 450 degrees fahrenheit. We utilize a high-end industrial powder coat finishing process for our tin backsplash panels. This is superior to any paint product in resisting acids, solvents, impact, abrasions and heat. For customers purchasing unfinished tin backsplash panels we recommend a minimum of a polyurethane clear coat be applied to the tin as a protectant.
