Standards & Compliance
DecoSplash® fully complies with all of the relevant Australian and International Standards for Splashbacks.
Australian Construction Code (BCA) or NCC
The BCA sets out the requirements for non-combustible materials that are used in building construction. DecoSplash has been tested at the CSIRO Building Research Station to AS 1530.3 and AS1530.1, and complies with BCA requirements as a “non-combustible” material.
DecoSplash fully complies with the requirements of AS5601.1 (the Australian Standard for the installation of gas appliances) as a Fire Resistant Material. However it is recommended that gas cook tops are installed with a minimum distance of 200mm from the splashback to the back gas hob.
DecoSplash® can also be installed behind an electric cooktop. A minimum distance of 100mm from the splashback is recommended.
Power Points sold in Australia by major Australian suppliers are designed for installation with metal in accordance with the Electrical Standard AS3000.
Power Points are designed to be electrically isolated from the metal surface, however as an additional safety measure, an earth wire can be fitted to the splashback. The fitting of the optional earth wire is recommended.
NOTE: power point installation MUST be carried out by a licensed electrical contractor in all circumstances.
Powder Coated Surface Standards
Qualicoat is the international standard for quality assurance in powder coating.
The powder coat finish used for DecoSplash® is applied by a licensed Qualicoat applicator and complies with Class 2 “Super Durable” requirements. DecoSplash® also fully complies with the requirements of the Australian Standard for powder coating, AS3715.
DecoSplash® features a Polyurethane powder coat finish which means it is ‘anti-graffiti’ grade. DecoSplash® splashbacks will repel anything trying to stick to it. In a kitchen environment, this makes DecoSplash® very easy to clean with minimal maintenance. Simply wipe clean by using a damp cloth. For more information, please see our cleaning guide.
