Summer is coming soon to Australia and with the dry and hot weather bushfires are a threat to many properties. At DHE Group, we are proud to offer a wide range of bushfire window roller shutters to help you protect your loved ones and assets.
Consequences of the bushfires:
As we have seen during the devastating Australian bushfires of 2019-2020, in most cases, commercial properties and houses get destroyed when uncontrolled heat breaks in the windows of a building.
Unfortunately, once this happens the chances that the fire ignites curtains, furniture and other flammable items are high.
Thankfully, that’s where window roller shutters come in place. Did you know that bushfire shutters can reduce heat by 90% and decrease the likelihood of windows exploding?
As a result, having fire-rated roller shutters in your windows will help keep fire out of your property and to protect your life, as by blocking the fire entry points into the property, the chances of the premise burning down will be significantly reduced.
Choose the correct type of bushfire roller shutters:
After the catastrophic Black Saturday Bushfires in 2009, the 2010 Building Code of Australia (BCA) and the amended Australian Standard AS 3959-2009 both were set in place with the objective to ensure that buildings in bushfire-prone areas will meet some security requirements.
In fact, there are six bushfire levels that are in place to determine the window roller shutter level that has to be used in that area:
- BAL – LOW
- BAL – 12.5
- BAL – 19
- BAL – 29
- BAL – 40
- BAL – FZ
In addition, at Dynamic Roller Shutters, our options for bushfire roller shutters include full BAL – 40 protection for windows, an essential part of protection from bushfires and the current highest offering available.
