Fire Safety

Providing home fire protection to properties in Australia is our top priority. FireCrunch is a 21st century fire tested building board, non-comparable to fire rated plasterboards. Our fire rated building board wall panels have been thoroughly tried and tested to ensure all requirements have been met ( NATA/ CSIRO) and are therefore compliant with Australian building standards to AS1530.4-2005 then highest rating fire test in Australia. Here at FireCrunch, we prioritise safety and security.

Fire tested building boards and fire rated building boards are mandatory to comply with Australian standards in construction. In addition, fire separation walls and BCA standards fire tests are also obligatory. Our MBE, magnesium oxide building boards go through rigorous CSRIO testing, and FireCrunch is the top ranked light weight fire rated building board in Australia.

CSRIO (North Ryde, NSW) has approved our FireCrunch building boards through mandatory fire proof building board tests. Additionally, FireCrunch is a bushfire safe building board, fire tested with BCA standard Fire Certificates from the (CSIRO) Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation to FRL 90/90/90.

FireCrunch fire tested building boards are completely non-combustible. It will not burn at temperatures 1200⁰C (AS 3837) and is system tested fire separation walls under AS 1530.4-2005. It has a BAL rating to maximum BAL FZ Flame Zone and FireCrunch meets AS 3959, AS 3837 and AS 1530.8.2.

Quick Reference Topics


  • Fire resistant to extremely high temperatures (1200ºC).
  • Meets BAL FZ and up to FRL 90/90/90.
  • Non-combustible (AS/NZS 3837).
  • Non-asbestos, Australian certification.
  • Resistant to flooding and prolonged water emersion.
  • Resistant to bacteria moisture, humidity, mould and mildew.
  • Completely resistant to termites and insects.
  • Low thermal conductivity ~0.44 (W/mk).
  • Higher R values than plasterboard.
  • Less expensive, eliminates multiple layers of plasterboard for high FRL.

 

Australian Standards (Certificated in Australia)

See certifications:
