Feel confident that your home is protected with residential bushfire shutters from AdShutters for your residential property in the Sydney, NSW or Gold Coast, QLD region.
Bushfires are an unfortunate and devastating issue in Australia. These ruthless and unpredictable fires have destroyed many homes and businesses that were unprotected. These fires cause internal damage when debris and heat cause the windows to break, which allows an entry point for the flames. If the roller shutters are not there to shield the home, flames will engulf anything flammable within the home, easily destroying the entire thing in a matter of minutes.
Luckily, companies like AdShutters are here to provide a solution that can drastically reduce the damage your home or business will take with our bushfire shutters.
Bushfire Attack Level
Bushfire danger of a building or home is rated with one of six potential bushfire attack levels (BAL). These levels range from low-risk (BAL-LOW) to very high risk (BAL-FZ).
- BAL-LOW means that standard window and door products may be used at this level and no special requirements are necessary.
- BAL 12.5, BAL 19, BAL 29, and BAL 40 are the middle tiers of bushfire attack levels
- BAL-FZ is very high risk and requires attention
At AdShutters, we provide fire rated roller shutters for windows and doors that are rated BAL FZ. These particular shutters passed the testing method AS 1530.8.2-2007, which makes them one of the highest grades available. They are stainless steel and contain no combustible materials and are used in many types of roller shutters.
If your development application was into council before January 1, 2018 you can also achieve BAL-FZ by pairing our bushfire shutter with a BAL-40 window or door system.
Our bushfire shutters are manufactured with radiant heat defensive properties and are made from double-wall stainless steel. Your home or business will be safe and extremely resistant to any form of burning.
