Application by an approved installer only
- Ensure surface is clean and dry. If the surface is plastered or rendered brick, ensure the walls are completely dry and sealed, using a sealed MDF backing board or suitable paint finish.
- Ensure surface is true and plumb, with maximum dimensional tolerances of + or – 2mm. ImageKOTE Glass is manufactured under licence in accordance with AS/NZS 2208 standards.
- Special care must be taken to ensure glass edges are not damaged during storage, handling and installation procedures.
- Dimensional and Process Tolerances – As per published Toughened Glass Manufacturers Standard Product specifications.
- Edge work – Flat smooth edges are recommended for most applications.
- Roller Wave Acceptance – Acceptable if less than 0.15mm when measured on a roller wave tolerance gauge.
- Cutting Shapes and Cut-Out Limitations – As per published Glass Manufacturers Standard Product specifications and tolerance data.
- Templates must be made from rigid material as per Toughened Manufacturers standard requirements.
- ImageKOTE glass should be installed in accordance with Australian Standard AS1288- 2006 (Glass in buildings – selection and installation).
- Use only neutral cure silicone sealants and double sided glazing tape when installing ImageKOTE glass.

- Glass to cabinets or other fixtures silicone joint tolerance + or – 3mm (maximum permissible joint width 6mm.)
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS
- ImageKOTE glass must be kept clean and free from surface contaminants.
- General cleaners recommended for glass are suitable as cleaning agents.
- Sponges, chamois and soft cloths may be used, but must be rinsed regularly to remove any foreign particles that could scratch or mark the glass surface.
- Products similar to steel wool, scourers pads etc. must not be used in any circumstance, as they will permanently damage the product surface.
- Gas top burners / splashbacks: If the gas burner installation is located less than 200mm from the periphery of the nearest burner to any vertical combustible surface to be covered with toughened glass, the vertical surface needs to be protected to ensure the surface temperature of the combustible surface does not exceed 65oC above ambient. This protected area must cover a minimum 150mm above the hob.
- Standard plasterboard and other general wall materials do not comply with the definition under
- AS5601:2010 Standard and therefore cannot be taken as “non-combustible”. This means that these materials are not exempt from the clearance requirements for gas cooking appliances and need to be covered by a non-combustible material.
- All power points and switches must have correct mounting plates behind them.
- All power points must be positioned no closer than 30mm from any edge of the glass or 30mm apart from each other.
Important Notice – Glass installers (Glaziers) are not licenced to remove or refit general electrical power outlets. All electrical work must be carried out by a licensed electrical contractor.
