As noted in the New Zealand Standards Authority report NZS 5261:2003 – any combustible material (Gypsum based wall board) within 200mm from the middle of the rear burner needs to be protected by either: 5mm ceramic tiles, 5mm toughened glass or 0.4mm stainless steel, or any other system that can be demonstrated to satisfy the temperature requirement.
Any GlassArt splashback installed within 200mm of the rear back burner is covered by our Paint Deterioration Full Replacement Warranty. However, if the distance is less than 100mm from the edge of the burner we recommend extreme care is taken when using the back burners, particularly the larger ‘wok’ burners. Splashbacks installed within this 100mm may not be covered by the GlassArt Full Replacement Warranty. Continuous excessive heat can cause damage to the splashback.
