Bal-FZ Shutters Sydney & Gold Coast

Plantation Shutters Sydney & Gold Coast

When your windows & doors need maximum protection from the raging Australian bushfires, your home needs BAL-FZ fire shutters.

At Adshutters, we provide varying levels of bushfire shutters that are intended to protect your home according to the zone your home is located in. For those homes in a high-risk zone, Bushfire Attack Level – Flame Zone (BAL-FZ) is necessary.

Adshutters BAL-FZ flame zone shutter system comes packed with huge benefits for your residence. We stay at the forefront of innovation with our shutters and are happy to provide BAL-FZ fire shutters that meet the highest Australian standards and protect homes from Sydney, NSW to the Gold Coast, QLD when a bushfire erupts.

What does BAL-FZ mean?

This is the highest danger rating that a property can be given regarding bushfires. It also means that the property is likely to be exposed directly to flames from the fire front and is susceptible to attack from embers. Additionally, a heat flux of more than 40kW/m2 can be expected.

Installing flame zone bushfire shutters is the only way to meet the BAL-FZ standards on a property with standard windows.

BAL ratings can vary from house to house and even vary depending on different sides of your home.

BAL ratings vary and are rated depending on the following criteria:

  • Where you live
  • The type and density of the vegetation around your home
  • The distance from the vegetation to your home
  • The slope of the ground beneath the vegetation


These shutters are suitable for both new and old buildings and come in customizable colours so you can aesthetically match your new shutters to your property. For assistance in styling, work with AdShutters professionals on selecting your shutter colour.

Product FAQ’s

The testing standards for BAL-40 and BAL-FZ shutters are different. Meeting the BAL-40 standards is easier than meeting the BAL-FZ standards because the BAL-FZ fire shutters are designed to withstand more extreme fire conditions than BAL-40 shutters.

Your windows are one of the weakest points on your home, especially when a bushfire blows through. Structurally, windows are prone to cracking and breaking during these circumstances. Broken windows can be a gateway to sparks and embers that will then set your home or commercial building on fire on the inside.

Our stainless steel shutters protect your home from bushfires while also adding additional protection from prying eyes, noise, and sunlight/heat.

Of course—your BAL-FZ fire shutters are designed to have all the normal components of regular shutters with the added protection against bushfires.
