FireSafeTM Bushfire Roller Shutters

Protect Your Home And Family With FireSafeTM Bushfire Roller Shutters!

As more and more Australians move to country and semi-rural areas for a better lifestyle, and our urban sprawl takes homeowners closer to bushfire prone, wooded and high vegetation areas, protection from bushfires has become increasingly important in Australia. Add to that the ongoing devastation of bushfires in many states across the country, and it becomes vital that we help protect Australian families and their homes from bushfires. 

Aside from the obvious and growing need for bushfire protection, a new Australian Bushfire Construction Standard AS3959-2009 has been implemented, detailing minimum standards for building and construction in bushfire areas. This new standard is now mandatory in some states of Australia.

The FireSafeTM Bushfire Rated Roller Shutter has been tested by the CSIRO at their testing facility (Report# FSZ1379) achieving a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of A40 when fully closed. Exposed to a radiant heat as severe as 40 kW/m2, to simulate bushfire attack, FireSafeTM has been successful in all its performance testing, and complies with AS3959-2009 (Clauses 3.7 & 8.5.1).
