How do I trim a glass splashback down?

Abrasive water jet cutting of glass splashbacks makes light work of cutting wall socket holes, the trimming of the splashbacks down to a certain size, or even cutting the splashback into a unique shape.

How does abrasive water jet cut glass shapes?

A 1mm diameter jet of high pressure water is mixed with a fine abrasive sand, the mixture of the sand and water erodes (cuts) the glass. A low pressure jet is used first to start the cutting process to ensure the glass does not shatter, once the initial hole is made in the glass the pressure of the cutting jet is increased to 3600Bar.
