Splashback Compliance


EnduraPanel is ideal for use as a wet area splashback. Most local bodies now require a waterproof barrier to the area immediately behind a splash zone (bathroom vanity, bath etc). In this area EnduraPanel is fully compliant with all council requirements.


EnduraPanel makes an excellent splashback for areas behind bench tops.

However, due to the differing specifications of cook tops and their ability to deflect large amounts of heat, EnduraPanel is not recommended for use as a splashback in the critical heat zone in areas immediately behind cook tops that offer no flame deflection. In this application it is recommended to terminate EnduraPanel at the edge of the appliance and within 300mm of the periphery of the nearest heating element.

EnduraPanel is not recommended for use behind gas hobs or burners.

Some cooking appliance manufacturers have models with glass lids that lift into place, acting as a fire resistant barrier. In this situation EnduraPanel is compliant with AS/NZS 5601.1—2008.

All installations must comply with ‘AS/NZS 5601.1 — 2008 Gas installations’.
