FireCrunch offers peace of mind, safety and security with our fire resistant and high FRL fire rated building board range. Australia experiences a number of unpredictable and dangerous bushfires every year, therefore it is important that your home property is well protected.
Bushfire areas are defined under a special code AS 3959 standard.
Australia has eight climatic zones requiring definitive redirection and compliance in building codes. The requirements in bushfire building are covered by a set of Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) regulations and this range in figures which relate to Kw/m2 (per square metre of irradiance). This heat flux is identified as 12.5, 19, 29, 40 and Flame Zone (FZ), 50Kw/m2 (12.5 is the low end with lower risk and FZ is the top end high risk).
