The Australian building code includes the Australian Standard (AS3959). This standard includes specifications for design and materials that are necessary for new buildings to comply with regulations. The specifications are designed to minimise the risk of buildings igniting during bushfires.
The building specifications become increasingly resistant to fire as the BAL level increases. This is gained through more fire resistant materials being employed throughout a building.
Some of the materials can easily be retro-fitted to exising buildings to enhance the bushfire resistance.
Our assessment of your building will identify a range of cost effective adjustments that you may wish to consider.
