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)

Climatic variances are damaging

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

Fire and bushfire safe building is one of these conditions as Australia experiences some of the worlds fiercest bushfires on a very regular basis throughout the hot dry summer months

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

Keeping you safe with fire protection products

The stock shown on our website is FireCrunch a new type of Fire Proof 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 for over 1 5 hours 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 fire proof 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 town houses semi detached duplexes and high rise residential and commercial buildings

INTERIOR /EXTERIOR wet areas, decking, floors, etc.

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 as well

Termites walk away

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 Fire crunch remains inert in water or flooding FireCrunch is Termite Proof

Flooding

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

Customer satisfaction
