    Hi All

    Is a fire panel behind the kitchen oven required? (Something like 13mm fyrchek?)

    I am trying to understand the purpose of it.

    The way I see it is, if the kitchen burns, its going to burn. The fyrchek wont prevent this.

    The only reason I can think of is normal plaster board will burn if the oven gets too hot. Fyrchek wont burn.

    What are your thoughts?

    fyrecheck is an overkill and not required .all heat from modern ovens is vented to the front to enter the room through grills under/over the oven door
