Glass backsplash.

Is it possible to use glass backsplash? I'm guessing it cannot handle the vibrations. Thanks a lot.

There are small glass tiles that I have seen used as a backsplash. They are small enough to not be an issue.

We did our kitchen with them. In our house, not the bus.
But would look good!

How big of a panel/how thick? How is it mounted?

It could be done, but would need extra consideration in mounting. Not so much vibration as flex would be dealbreaker.

You know vehicle windows are made of glass, right???
