Can I install panelling as a bath or vanity splashback?

Easycraft’s Wet Area products can be used in Bathrooms and Laundries as wall and ceiling paneling/lining. However certain areas require a “water resistant” material according to the Australian Standard AS 3740 & NCC (National Construction Code) Volume One, F1.7 and Volume Two, 3.8.1.

Behind a bath or vanity are areas that must have a water resistant material (eg: tile, stone, glass) to a height of no less than 150mm above the vessel (for the extent of the vessel) where the vessel is within 75mm of the wall. It is always best to consult an experienced qualified builder or building surveyor to review your particular requirements.
