The VanShades Splashbacks are a stylish and practical solution to combining a bulky sliding window and a thermal blind.
Manufactured from tough 5mm cast acrylic or aluminium bonded composite sheets, VanShades Splashbacks are laser cut with polished edges and a stylish way to finish your kitchen side conversion.
Available in a wide range of colours (see splashback colour choices here) and finishes and include your choice of VanShades Window Pods thermal cellular blinds (see this page for the wide range of blinds colours available).
They solve the problems associated with factory-fitted and OEM sliding windows behind the driver getting in the way of the traditional Window Pod® system.
The rear of the Splashback is carpeted using Anthracite carpet to prevent light ingress.
Blinds supplied with Splashbacks are supplied with Anthracite headrail as standard, if you need to order white headrail then please let us know.
We supply Splashbacks oversize so that they can be trimmed if necessary. Size: ~1800mm x 650mm
(Aluminium Splashbacks size: 1800mm x 607mm)
Splashbacks have a matching blinds aperture cut to the same profile as the Window Pod® system.
Sikaflex 221 is our recommended bonding product, only a few small dollops to the rear of Splashback and the wall of your vehicle.
You may need to space your Splashback from the wall of the vehicle to allow the blind to pass the sliding window handle. This largely depends on what type of window you have and your furniture.

Please note the following important compatibility issues…
CARAVELLE – Window Pods® are design to sit flush with the window reveal and as the Caravelle uses a plastic trim unfortunately our Window Pods® are not yet compatible.
CARPET – As there are several manufacturers of carpet with the same colour names, please ask for a free carpet sample before ordering to ensure good match.
CLEAR GLASS – In most instances aftermarket glass is privacy glass however in some cases you can purchase clear glass and some factory fitted glass can also be clear (eg: tailgate glass). If clear glass is fitted you will see the rear of the Window Pod® as you would curtains and so you may want to consider tinting the window before fitting your Window Pod®.
REAR QUARTER SLIDING WINDOW – Window Pods® are NOT compatible with aftermarket rear quarter sliding windows.
SPLASHBACKS – SplashBacks solve the problems associated with factory-fitted and OEM sliding windows behind the driver getting in the way of being able to use the traditional WindowPod® system.
SLIDING WINDOW BEHIND DRIVER – If you have ANY sliding window behind the driver and you have ANY of the following kitchen items; EVO® kitchen units, a worktop height of more than 730mm, a top-loading fridge, shelf or lighting pelmet above the window, then please call our Technical Helpline on 0800 009 6291 for advice before placing your order.
