Bushfires in Australia are almost a common occurrence during the hotter months due to Australia’s hot and dry climate. Bushfire events in New South Wales, South Australia, Canberra, Western Australia and Victoria have been the most tragic bushfires events to occur in Australia’s history.
The Alspec BAL40 aluminium range has been designed to withstand temperatures of up to 40kW without failure to the glazing system while complying with AS2047. Protection from ember attack and burning debris preventing internal ignition to the building prevents possible loss of homes from the start.
The Alspec BAL40 range successfully exceeded system test requirements outlined in AS1530.8.1 while remaining in operation after the test. Although there are no requirements set for operation after a test, having peace of mind in functioning allows for potential egress and access of the building by occupants or fire authorities. These results are possible through the extensive Research & Development adding to the high quality design and functionality of this product.
