Bushfire Roller Shutters – Keeping your family safe and protected
If you live in an area at risk of Bushfires you may like to consider using our Bush Fire shutters. These shutters have a 40mm slat height and are 9mm thick similar to our domestic shutters but have superior strength and performance to protect your home in the event of bushfire.
One of the key safety issues in a bush fire situation is that the intense heat can shatter the glass in windows which may allow burning embers and intense heat to enter the home. Our Bush Fire Shutters provide an excellent physical barrier protecting against extreme heat and burning embers.
The high strength aluminium used for the slats is x3 thicker than our domestic roller shutter range to withstand the effects of extreme heat. Our bush fire roller shutters have been extensively tested by CSIRO in simulated severe bushfire conditions. They are rated as BAL (bushfire Attack Level) 40 and can withstand a maximum radiant heat exposure of 40kw/m2 after 60 minutes with no ignition or flaming.
Bush Fire Rated shutters can be used for larger than average openings spanning up to 4.0m wide and can be made up to 3.8m high to accommodate openings of up to 12 square meters.
