FireCrunch is an Australian owned and operated company which focuses on providing high quality and sustainable fire-resistant building materials for interior and exterior cladding in residential, commercial and all types of industrial and public buildings.
We nationally distribute our products in major capital cities, regional cities and country areas. We focus on CSIRO fire tested and NATA labs approved building boards that go above and beyond certifications in a progression to future-proof construction and high rise residential and commercial buildings today.
FireCrunch acknowledge the major threat of all fires and the need for bushfire resistant building boards to protect lives and homes against bushfires which destroy many homes every year in Australia.
FireCrunch meets the major threat of ALL fires and the need for bushfire resistant building materials to protect lives and homes in areas to BAL FZ for which it certified.
Our goal is also to protect and strengthen homes and properties from such unpredictable threats. Our CSIRO fire tested and approved building boards are unique and totally different to conventional so called fire proof plasterboard products. FireCrunch is high impact and termite resistant, whilst maintaining a very low carbon footprint of only 5% compared to cement based and plasterboard products.
Magnesium Oxide (MgO) / Sulphate FireCrunch is an innovative Magnesium Oxide (MgO) composite using only Magnesium Sulphate supplement (MgSO4) and not the metal corrosive Magnesium Chloride which is contained in all MgO available in Australia to date.
See our Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for magnesium oxide products and more information about the benefits of FireCrunch.
Victorian fire storms
Black Saturday 2009 was Australia’s most damaging bushfire in Victoria , with the death toll being 173. Over 2000 homes were destroyed and It was from these horrific scenarios that the team at FireCrunch decided there needed to be a change, a change giving people the opportunity to build their houses with a more sustainable and fire-resistant building material.
We have this FCA material fully tested to the most aggressive BCA requirements under AS1530.4 (C1..C19)-/ 2025 and also as shown in the real time CSIRO video located under “About Us” web site browser home page firecrunch.com.au showing it will ensure buildings constructed with this FireCrunch product will survive fire storms. It was tested in real time live full scale Bushfire simulation test by the CSIRO and subsequent additional tests shows FCA meets AS 15188.8.131.52 BAL FZ and the VERY aggressive AS1540.4, 1000 deg c wall systems fire test for 1.5 hours FRL 90/90/90
