If our choice fell on one-colored Lacobel glass panels, we can enjoy a vibrant and vivid hue, but in case if higher resistance is needed, we may require tempered glass splashbacks. It is important to remember that the Lacobel glass is not resistant to high temperatures, therefore, these splashbacks should not be installed in areas exposed to heat such as in the oven or gas cooker area.
