Gas Information Sheet No. 53 now published

Reconstituted stone, also known as ‘quartz surface’, is a popular product used in domestic surfacing applications and kitchen and bathroom bench tops and splashbacks. (A well-known brand of reconstituted stone is Caesarstone.)

But reconstituted stone may be a fire risk if it’s installed too close to a hot plate burner.

For more information about the properties a fire resistant material must have, especially if it’s being installed close to a burner, see Gas Information Sheet 53.
