Bushfire protection is what we do

Bushfire protection is what we do and after 10 years in the Fireboard industry, FireCrunch products are now used extensively throughout the country.

FireCrunch has been tested by NATA laboratories in Australia ( CSIRO) and others – see certifications.

The increasing intensity and duration of bushfires is what Australia has to contend with in dryer and longer summers. New regulation and modifications to older bushfire systems to eliminate exposed timber and use masonry walls in many cases have made this a very expensive exercise.

FireCrunch has however been able to design new systems under the new NCC structure (National Construction Code) that allows for “Alternative performance solutions” to be used to combat the burn down capability of homes in BAL FZ areas.

FireCrunch uses 22nd century materials which are totally non-combustible at 1000 deg c ( AS1530.1) and withstands fire at 1000 deg c up to a continuous 90 minutes (AS1530.8.2) and (AS1530.4) and more .

FireCrunch clad homes constructed to FireCrunch clad Manual specifications, will not burn down in firestorm, no matter how fierce.

So you don’t have to live in an ugly Concrete block house.

We have decorative external timber appearance weatherboard which can be set vertical or horizontal and exterior cladding, roofing and decking all BAL FZ approved. Interiors can bet set with our K-Clad TE10 finish board for plaster set joints or use the new fashionable match lining.

K-Wall can be set vertical or horizontal (A fire wall and finish wall), which can be painted texture painted or rendered to your choice.

If you are a bushfire victim and looking for assistance with rebuilding, please see bushfire victim support.
