Paarhammer BAL-FZ bushfire safe windows and doors give peace of mind without the need for shutters.
In a major technical breakthrough Paarhammer has achieved the so far unattainable: the first windows and doors that do not require additional shutters or fire screens in Flame Zone designated areas. These windows and doors make it possible to combine aesthetics and design freedom with safety in the highest bushfire prone areas.
Flame Zone windows and doors are made from selected FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) certified Manilkara Bidentata timbers combined with Schott Pyranova® glass (intumescent layers on one of the panes of the double glazed unit swells up and acts like a heat blanket in case of fire).
Paarhammer BAL-FZ products are tested and approved to the relevant Australian Standard AS1530.8.2-2007, and comply with AS3959-2018. The windows and doors come with compliance certification.
Our Flame Zone products have been recognised at the Victorian Fire Awareness Awards by the Department of Sustainability and received the Australian
Windows Association 'Most Innovative Window and Door System' award 2012.
