Bushfire safety is the winner with our BAL-40 and BAL-FZ windows and doors
Many Australians love living in a bush setting but have to constantly cope with the threat of bushfires. In addition, strict building regulations for building or renovating in bushfire hazard designated Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) zones have put many conditions on all aspects of the external built environment.
After extensive testing, Paarhammer obtained approval for its special fire resistant windows and doors. Paarhammer was the first company in Australia to receive approval for BAL-40 and even BAL-FZ designated areas. These fire resistant windows and doors comply with Australian Standards for Building in Bushfire Prone Areas AS 3959-2018 and AS 3959-2009, and have been tested to AS 1530.8.1-2007 and AS1530.8.2-2007. All Paarhammer Bushfire Safe windows and doors come with compliance certification, and do not require shutters.
To find out more about the BAL ratings in your area consult your local council, building inspectors, government or local fire authority.
Paarhammer Bushfire Safe windows and doors make it possible to combine aesthetics and design freedom with safety in bushfire prone areas.
