BUSH FIRES AND (BAL FZ) FLAME ZONE PROTECTION BUILDING

Australia is a country regularly ravaged by dangerous bushfires of varying proportions. The loss of life and property has been substantial since European settlers arrived in 1788 and still regrettably continues today.

Indigenous Aboriginal tribes were well used those occurrences and had a definitive policy of clearing bush around all areas of protective concerns. Today we call that an Asset Protection Zone (APZ), which carries defined specifications and requirements for those building in bush fire prone areas.

The Rural (RFS) and Country fire services (CFS) are the best source of local information in your area.

As the name suggests, FireCrunch building boards are specifically designed to be a superior option in safety and fire protection. Through rigorous Australian NATA accredited labs testing like the CSIRO and continuous development. FireCrunch is redefining what it means to protect Australian homes and properties and ALSO establish an environmentally responsible low Co2 manufacturing process.

FireCrunch ensures the protection of homes and buildings in our unique Australian climate and environment with our all in one building board solution.

FIRE – FLOODS – TERMITES – ACOUSTICS – IMPACT – BACTERIA – MOULD

We are proud to present our NATA/ CSIRO fire tested and certificated FireCrunch product range, with a Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of 90/90/90. This only requires 1 x 10 mm thick sheet per side of steel frame (1.1 BMT).v up to 3 layers of 13mm plasterboard.

Through the development and various testing stages, it has allowed us to produce totally reliable, durable and eco-friendly building boards. FireCrunch can withstand temperatures of 1200⁰C which reinforces our quality in terms of protection of Hi Rise buildings and life even from the most dangerous BAL FZ bushfire conditions.

Such quality of FireCrunch reinforces a high concern for our Australia wide customers’ safety and security, with ease of use and multi-beneficial features embedded in our unique Magnesium Sulfate fire rated building boards.

Bushfire Area Building

Through the name it might be noted that FireCrunch is a building board that offers security and peace of mind to people living in or rebuilding in bushfire zones. It does this through the use of innovative Magnesium Oxide and "Magnesium Sulphate" FIRE RESISTANT building materials that block fire to up to 1200°C, all while being more environmentally friendly and asbestos free.

Australian Standards Fire Tested

The CSIRO have fire tested and certificated all the 10mm FireCrunch boards to a standard Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of 90/90/90,and with these in depth and most “aggressive” NATA accredited / CSIRO Labs under AS/ 1530.4-2005/14 FIRE TESTS have well proved the FCA product capability.

The FRL ( Fire Resistance Level ) obtained with 1 x 10mm sheet is FRL 90/90/90 on a light gauge cold rolled formed Blue Scope steel, gauge 1.0 BMT carrying a 55kN load bearing on the BCA minimum 3m x 3m frame.

This is three times the duration level required for BAL FZ (FRL 30/30/30). (See CSIRO Bushfire test video with FireCrunch, Click here).

The FRL ( Fire Resistance Level ) was obtained with 1 x 10mm sheet is FRL 90/90/90 on a light gauge cold rolled formed blue scope steel, gauge 1.0 BMT and a 55kN load bearing.

Fire Combat Australia Pty Ltd (FCA) is proud of that result which ensures minimum cost for construction in bushfire areas and also right through to high rise residential and commercial construction where paramount concern is stability and safety.

It is important to build correctly protected housing for the appropriate locations and to minimise the risk of threats such as Bushfires. FireCrunch meets the full BAL FZ Flame Zone requirement with just 1x 10mm FCA sheet each side of a minimum 90mm x 45mm frame and 1 x 16mm in the roof and under eaves area.

Recognising how FireCrunch can be incorporated into houses in bushfire prone areas is the first step to potentially being the difference between saving lives and even simply saving valuable personal belongings and memories.

Homes will not burn down in Firestorm when protected with FCA.

FireCrunch eco-friendly building materials are also flood water, sound, impact, termite, mould, and bacteria resistant. We have incorporated these resistant factors by analysing current market standards and re-constituting them in order to provide an extensive area of protection and not just Fire … in all construction.
