WHAT ARE BUSHFIRE PROTECTION MEASURES?
Due to the high risks associated with living in a bushfire prone area, building requirements have been designed to ensure your maximum safety in the event of a fire. These requirements vary dependent on your bushfire attack level (BAL).
what is BAL?
BAL stands for ‘bushfire attack level’, it is used to determine the appropriate level of protection needed relative to the likelihood of a bushfire attack.
BAL is determined by knowing 4 things:
- Type of vegetation surrounding the property
- Slope of vegetation
- Fire Danger Index (FDI)
- The distance of the vegetation from the property
The BAL levels vary dependent on potential danger and each level has seperate requirements in order to satisfy safety standards, these levels include:
BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN HOME
The industry leading MicroLouvre technology is an ideal addition to homes within any setting. The specially angled louvres of MicroLouvre can reduce the temperature in your home by up to 10ºc in summer! This is done by stopping the heat before it reaches your window.
With the louvres at a 17º angle, MicroLouvre provides complete shading when the sun is at its hottest. MicroLouvre has twice the open area of most other screens. this makes MicroLouvre almost invisible from the inside giving perfect outward vision.
