Bushfire preparation is all about ensuring you find a home that has the relevant bushfire zonings before you build or purchase

Each year Australians are faced with bushfire threats — yet how often does this enter your mind when you are trying to find the perfect home solution? Nobody wants to find out that the home of their dreams is at risk.

Beautiful countryside and semi-rural homes are often at particular risk of bushfires and as a result it is crucial to ensure you are aware of bushfire zoning.

Beautiful countryside and semi-rural homes are often at particular risk of bushfires and as a result it is crucial to ensure you are aware of bushfire zoning.

Luckily, Manor has done the research for you.

There are four main Bushfire Attach Levels (commonly referred to as BAL Zones), which classify intensity of the Bushfire zone surrounding your site.

BAL 12.5 – means your site and home will be exposed to ember attacks.
BAL 29 – at this level your site is has increased levels of an ember attack and burning debris.
BAL 40 – There is an increased likelihood of your site and home being exposed to flames, plus under ember attack threats too.
BAL FZ – this means your home is in a Flame Zone, where there will potentially be direct expose to flames in addition to heat flux and ember attacks.

When it comes to building your home in a bushfire zone, there are certain requirements and finishes must be included, depending on the BAL level. For example to prevent embers getting into the ceilings, gutter guards are installed. Or, so your verandah doesn’t catch alight when exposed to embers or flames, the decking will be made from bushfire resisting timber or non-combustible material.
