Home owners that want to build or renovate in BAL-40 zones have to now comply with Australian Standard AS 3959-2009 and AS 3959-2018. Paarhammer windows and doors have been tested to AS 1530.8.1-2007 for BAL-40 and passed the test with flying colours. This means that home owners can now live in BAL-40 zones with all the benefits of Paarhammer's superior energy savings and security. All Paarhammer Bushfire Safe products comply with all relevant Australian Standards and come with Compliance certification.

Living in BAL-40 zones has become very easy with Paarhammer windows and doors, without the need to use shutters. See a case study of the Blairgowrie Dune House or the Forever House
