Bushfire safety is the winner with our BAL-40 and BAL-FZ windows and doors

Victoria - High CountryNSW - South CoastVictoria - Mornington Peninsula

Many Australians love living in a bush setting but have to constantly cope with the threat of bushfires. In addition, new 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 has obtained approval for its special fire resistant windows and doors. As such, Paarhammer is the first company in Australia to receive approval for BAL-40 and even BAL-FZ designated areas. These fire resistant windows and doors meet the Australian Standards for Building in Bush-fire Prone Areas AS 3959-2009 and AS 3959-2018, 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.

To find out more about the BAL ratings in your area, consult your local council, building inspectors, government or local fire authority.
