FIRE SEPARATION WALL, SYSTEMS FIRE TESTED BY THE CSIRO, A NATA TESTING AUTHORITY FOR (BCA) Building Code of Australia COMPLIANCE.

FireCrunch is an environmental and extensively NATA tested 21st century building board used in modern construction. It is made from a composition of Magnesium Oxide (Mgo), non-organic minerals, bonders and fibre mesh composites. FireCrunch is completely free of toxins, including formaldehyde, silica, no asbestos, heavy metals, and organic solvents.

It is non-toxic, completely resistant to fire, water, impact, sound, termites, bacteria and mould. FireCrunch increases the R value in any panel insulation application. FireCrunch is recommended and CSIRO tested for bushfire safe building for home fire protection.

FireCrunch has extensive applications in construction for residential and commercial properties. It is a lightweight material and suitable for modern construction, where fire tested and fire rated building boards are mandatory in Australian standards. Construction in fire separation walls; FireCrunch is compliant with BCA standards fire tests. Fire Combat Australia Pty Ltd commissioned the CSIRO Infrastructure Technologies NATA accredited (North Ryde, NSW) to conduct these mandatory fire resistant building board tests under ISO/IEC 17025.
