Bush fires in Australia are seasonally a common occurrence due to our hot and dry climate, and at times have caused destruction to property, and more tragically has taken lives. When building on bush fire prone land consideration is placed on building construction and design.
At Jensen we offer a range of products that have successfully exceeded the test requirements outlined in relevant Australian Standards, including those requirements under BAL40 ratings. Your BAL40 rated aluminium windows have been designed to withstand temperatures of up to 40kW without failure.
The building requirements for house design and construction vary according to the bush fire attack level that a development falls into. These are classified as Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL).
