All four sides of the backsplash are hem-edged for extra rigidity. (See photo.)
The backsplash is made from 430 series stainless which allows you to attach magnetic items like spice tins. The polished surface is shipped with a vinyl coating that protects the surface from scratches during manufacturing and transportation. It is also packed with extra corrugation to keep the package from being bent.
RiversEdge Products suggests the backsplash is installed using an adhesive such as a liquid nail. If you prefer to mount the backsplash with fasteners, you will need to drill your own mounting holes and provide the hardware as needed.
Proudly manufactured in Broseley, Missouri!
