Fire 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.
It’s the protection for the family and is usually designed to suite the personal aspirations we have in a comfortable and more and more so an environmental fire safe building product which reduces Co2 by up to 95% in manufacture protecting the environment (New Scientist magazine USA).
Unlike some countries Australia is subject to some extremes of weather and temperature and specific parameters of construction must be addressed to meet these variable conditions that have often proved fatal in the past fire, flood, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.
Bushfire safe building is essential and choosing the right type of fire tested and Fire resistant building materials is mandatory to survival of your home in Bushfire building areas such as BAL FZ. FireCrunch meets the maximum requirement protection level of (Bushfire Attack Level) BAL FZ Flame Zone, Fire Tested by the CSIRO and AS 3959
FireCrunch is a new type of fireproof building board material which is a magnesium oxide building board, MgO board and features a total fire block to intensive fire storms over 1000 deg c. This bushfire-safe building board product has been tested and certificated to the BCA Australian standard FRL 90/90/90 which means 1.5 hours at a continuous 1000 deg c and meets the Australian Standards AS 1530.8.1 and 1530.8.2 FRL 30/30/30.
Fire resistant and fireproof building board exterior and interior for all bushfire safe building. It is fire tested compliant and ideal for boundary fire walls fire separation walls in detached homes townhouses semi detached duplexes and high rise residential and commercial buildings.
FireCrunch has several additional benefits over Gyprock alternative and gyprock paper-based plasterboard board, it can be used in all aspects of home building where fire resistant building boards are required. Withstands fire, floods, termites and impact.
Apart from being a much better gyprock alternative for interiors as it is much stronger it will also not gather mould and mildew in wet areas and bacteria cannot survive on FireCrunch magnesium oxide MgO board so your home becomes a much healthier place also.
70% of households are still being built with timber framing, Termites are repelled by MgO magnesium oxide board. They cannot reach Mgo enclosed timber framing and FireCrunch remains inert in water or flooding. FireCrunch is termite-proof.
Just dry out the board and timber framing and reseal and repaint, try doing that with Gyprock plasterboard which just falls off the walls, makes an incredible mess when soaked, and cannot be reused at all.
FireCrunch has been able to create a strong image by offering these new CSIRO Fire tested and fire resistant magnesium oxide building products of highest standard all CSIRO Australian fire tested. Protecting homes from a bushfire attack and determining that a bushfire safe and fire safe building plan is made much more affordable with FireCrunch fire resistant building and fire proof fire separation walls and boundary firewalls.
Whether you are a major projects manager needing to get a better cladding option in less expensive product by eliminating multiple layers of plaster board to reach an FRL of 60/60/60 or 90/90/90 where one layer of 10mm FireCrunch achieves the same fire rating with a dramatic reduction in project labour costs.
You are a homeowner wanting to upgrade fire protection in a Bushfire building area or any area or maybe building a new home in a Bushfire building area and are seeking a bushfire safe building process with substantial cost savings over brick and cement block type constructions as a gyprock alternative.
