Protection when you need it most.
Protect your Home Against Bushfire Attack
In recent years, bushfires have caused huge losses of life and property across Australia. Bushfire protection is now required on constructions where the Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) has been determined as one of the six levels of risk.
In response, Crimsafe has designed and tested its security screens to meet the highest levels of protection in the event of a bushfire.
Crimsafe’s Tensile-Tuff® stainless steel mesh is specially designed to a size and shape (1.5mm x 1.5mm aperture) that meets the requirements of the Australian Standard (AS 3959-2009) for the construction of homes in bushfire prone areas.
When used in conjunction with a compliant window system, Crimsafe screens provide excellent protection from ember attack, reduce radiant heat and protect glass from the impact of burning debris in all Bushfire Attack Levels up to and including the most severe, BAL-FZ.
The Ember Attack Test
The Australian Standard (AS3959-2009) requires screens that cover openings to be made of corrosion-resistant, stainless steel, with an aperture size that will not allow a circular probe of 2mm to pass through.
Specifically designed with a 1.5mm x 1.5mm aperture, Crimsafe has been tested to effectively protect a home in all Bushfire Attack Levels up to and including the most extreme, BAL-FZ.
