BAL FZ Protection

The new BAL FZ (Bushfire Attack Level Flame Zone) is the most extreme rating that can be applied to building design and construction.

If you are building in a bushfire zone that requires BAL FZ compliance you need to use BAL FZ compliant materials.

This requirement also has implications for your insurance cover, as insurance companies will take a dim view of claims for fire damaged new builds that do not comply.

The weakest point in your home are your windows and doors and if they are left unprotected during a bushfire, they will shatter exposing the entire home, possibly destroying your valuable property and possessions in the process and putting your family at risk if they have not been able to evacuate safely. 

Australian Fire Control provide some options when it comes to protecting your home through tested
and assessed systems. These systems include; fixed fire windows in either timber or steel framing, hinged glass fire doors in both timber and steel framing and a compact manually operated Overhead Rolling Door that achieves a BAL FZ rating. 

Defender BAL FZ  Fire Windows


ARTFULLY CRAFTED IN TIMBER OR STEEL

Our fixed fire windows not only comply wth BAL-FZ but can also meet energy efficiency and acoustic requirements using either single glazed or double glazed systems. 

If you have a room facing a BAL FZ zone, opt for a small fixed fire window to let sunshine into the whole room, you will complete your design and stay within budget!

10m vegetation exclusion zone using -/30/- is required for this system.

Please provide your energy saving requirements (U Value and SHGC) and we can provide the correct combination for you.  There are minimum building code requirements but you may prefer better performance than this, depending on the typical climate where you live.

Defender BAL FZ  Fire Doors

AVAILABLE IN TIMBER OR STEEL - SINGLES & PAIRS

Take advantage of our hinged glass steel or timber framed doors. This system requires a 10m vegetation exclusion zone using -/30/-, but will not take away the amazing views your property has to offer!

For a more cost effective option go for a solid custom made hinged timber fire door. MDF faced with a large range of moulding designs, with the ability to add small sections of  glass and keep within your budget.
