BAL 29 RURAL EXP BAL 29
Living in Australia offers a lifestyle beyond compare. But the threat of bushfires is never far from your doorstep and needs to be considered when building or renovating. Australian Standards outline 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 zone
Corinthian offers a large range of doors designs that are manufactured to meet the regulatory requirements of building to BAL 29 and BAL 40 standards. To determine your home’s BAL rating, and any special requirements for building in your area, consult your local council, government, or local fire authority.
Entrance doors MUST be installed in weather protected openings;
You should avoid getting your doors wet, even after finishing/sealing; and NEVER hose your door down.
