Fire Tested Building Board

Fire Tested Building Board

MANY BUILDING PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN ALLOWED INTO AUSTRALIA IN THE PAST FROM OVERSEAS COUNTRIES, OFTEN RELYING ON OBSCURE TESTING OR TESTS CARRIED OUT BY NON REGULATED ELEMENTS OR TESTS THAT DO NOT RELATE DIRECTLY TO AUSTRALIAN REQUIREMENTS.

NOT JUST IN FIRE BUT IN MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PRODUCTS AND DISCIPLINES OF CONFORMITY.

The company is owned and operated by Australians and has no foreign ownership or shareholders

FireCrunch is an imported magnesium oxide composite Fire Resistant building board made in China for FireCrunch Australia.

It is  suitable for load bearing or non load bearing requirements in the construction of fire separation walls to FRL 90/90/90 and with modifications in thickness of MgO material to well over these levels made to the FireCrunch specification in meeting the exacting levels of BCA Fire resistant building Compliance in Australia. The product contains no formaldehyde,asbestos or any toxic chemicals and is certified by a NATA accredited testing laboratory “Clearsafe” NSW as free from any Asbestos which is an illegal substance in Australia see web site www.firecrunch.com.au under certification

 

FireCrunch is used extensively in the building and construction industry in Australian in free standing homes, townhouses, semi detached dwellings, cluster housing duplexes and hi rise residential and commercial buildings and also meets the BAL FZ  ,Max Flame Zone in fire resistant building in Bushfire building areas

 

FIRE and the CSIRO

Fire testing of FireCrunch has been carried out by the CSIRO Infrastructure Technologies

North Ryde NSW renewed in2016 to determine the BCA FRL level under AS 1530 part 4  AS 1530.4-2005)

FireCrunch is approved for fire resistance levels in major construction projects to FRL 90/90/90  and all under that level including Bushfire safe building   BAL FZ Flame Zone AS1530.8.1 and AS1530.8.2  at FRL 30/30/30

CSIRO certificates of Fire compliance are on the web site under “Certification” and the full range fire reports in each test are available on request to technical@firecrunch.com.au

Non asbestos and Acoustics tests to Rw 62 are also to be found under Certification www.firecrunch.com.au
