Bushfire protection

Bushfire protection is essential in Australia. For most of us the home we live in is the largest single investment we normally make and in doing so the home becomes the centre of much that we do.


(Non metal corrosive MgO board contains no corrosive Mag Chloride)

With the reliability and durability of our FireCrunch fire rated ceiling panel and fire rated wall panel systems, you can reliably ensure that resistance to insipient spread of fire (RISF) is a non event with FireCrunch fire resistant walls, fireproof decking and fire proof flooring systems, meeting BCA Australian standards.

Smart, simple and safe, RISF FireCrunch approved fire and fire rated wall, decking, ceiling and fire tested floor systems are committed to continually delivering only the best quality fire rated ceiling panel options. Made from lightweight and easy to work with fire rated Magnesium oxide sulphate boards (MgSO4) materials.

BCA standards Fire tested in Australia by NATA Labs CSIRO

With the added benefit of rigorous CSIRO NATA Fire testing, our FireCrunch fire rated building board range is BCA standards approved and is 100% fire safe.

The market is saturated with bushfire protection building options that just do not get the job done and can compromise the safety and security of people and buildings. View certifications.

FireCrunch insipient spread of flame, RISF and insipient spread of fire tested products, are the essential choice in lightweight construction where costs and performance meet.

FCA fire proof board and fire rated ceiling panel range is the smart and sensible option for Architects and builders who are dedicated to providing the safest and most secure structures for any home or office occupants with NATA tested materials and systems.

Suitable for both commercial and residential construction, our fire resistant ceiling panel options offer a high standard of bushfire protection, are versatile in their application and make environmentally responsible construction easier than ever. Covering FRL 30/30/30 to FRL 90/90/90 in fire resistant wall cladding, fire floors and fire rated ceilings.
