Bushfire Prone Areas

One of the outcomes of the Black Saturday fires in Victoria in February 2009 was a fast-track review of Australian Building Regulations associated with
bushfire prone areas. 

This culminated in Standards Australia publishing a revised version of AS3959, which now  provides clear guidance on the construction requirements for all new buildings in bushfire prone areas. This Standard aims to improve resistance to bushfire attack from burning embers, radiant heat, flame contact and combinations of these.

Kilargo’s comprehensive range of quality fire and smoke solutions are designed to meet the standards, maximise fire safety and provide increased protection with confidence and peace-of-mind. Our door bottom seals from the Integrity range, incorporating silicone rubber gaskets, provide door sealing solutions as required by this Standard.
