Our wide range of products and systems provide proven and assured levels of fire protection across a wide range of applications and building sectors for both new build and refurbishment projects. We work closely with construction professionals, providing comprehensive support and advice to select the most appropriate fire safety system and to ensure each building element complies with Australian Fire Standards and the National Building Code.

Australian Standards

AS 1530: Part 4: 2014

Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures – The standard follows general principles and procedures contained in ISO 834 series, and other related documents but consolidates them in one document. This standard provides a method for determining the fire resistance of building elements including walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, columns, beams, doorsets, uninsulated glazing, air ducts, service penetrations and fire damper assemblies. The Building Code of Australia (BCA) recognises compliance to the code when the relevant system of construction is tested in accordance to this standard.

AS 4072: Part 1: 2005

Components for the protection of openings in fire resistant separating elements (Part 1: Service penetrations and control joints)
This part specifies requirements for the testing, interpretation of test results, and installation of penetration sealing systems and control joints sealing systems in fire resistant elements of construction. The standard is based on the testing of standard configurations and provides minimum requirements for these fire stopping systems. It is intended to complement the fire protection requirements of the BCA and is to be read in conjunction with the testing regimes outlined in AS 1530: Part 4.

AS1530.4.8.1 – 2007

Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures –

Part 8.1 – Tests on Elements of construction for buildings exposed to simulated bushfire attack – Radiant Heat and small flaming sources
This standard provides methods for determining the performance of external construction elements when exposed to radiant heat, burning embers and burning debris.

AS1530.4.8.2 - 2007

Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures –

Part 8.2 - Tests on Elements of construction for buildings exposed to simulated bushfire attack – Large Flaming Sources
This standard provides methods for determining the performance of external construction elements when exposed to direct flame impingement from a fire front

AS3959-2009

Construction of Buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas.

This standard specifies requirements for buildings that are located in bushfire prone areas in order ot improve their resistance to both ember attack , radiant heat and impact from the fire front.
