Bushfire windows and doors

Many Australian homes are located in areas prone to bushfire attack. If you currently live, or plan to build, in a bushfire prone area, there are many precautions you can take to help protect your home and maximise your safety.

AWS has developed and tested a range of aluminium windows and aluminium doors certified to meet the requirements for a BAL-40 zone. Our aluminium windows and aluminium doors are engineered, tested and certified to withstand the conditions likely to occur in a BAL-40 zone and are designed to help you protect your home whilst still delivering unprecedented style, efficiency and functionality for your lifestyle.

The 2010 BCA and amended AS 3959 cover all aspects of the external built environment, including windows and doors. AS 3959 outlines different construction practices and building materials for five bushfire hazard levels, known as Bushfire Attack Levels (BALs).

  • BAL 12.5: Low
  • BAL 19: Moderate
  • BAL 29: High
  • BAL 40: Very high
  • BAL FZ: Flame zon

AWS has rigorously tested an extensive range of bushfire windows and bushfire doors to ensure their suitability for use in BAL-40 zones and compliance with the requirements set out by Australian Standard AS 3959.  These products are identified throughout the AWS websites by the BAL-40 symbol. Please contact us for more details.
