Many people dream of living reasonably close to the city while still enjoying the bushland surrounds. But this dream comes with serious risks, and you need to understand the correct Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) for your new home’s construction or renovation.

Each BAL rating has different requirements, which dictate both the construction method and materials used including the materials used for Flyscreens and Security Doors.

There are six BAL ratings, and councils are required to map bushfire prone land and categorise it using the BAL rating system below:

  • BAL12.5
  • BAL19
  • BAL 29
  • BAL40
  • BAL FZ

Depending on what category your new home or renovation falls in will not only determine the type of mesh required on your Flyscreens or Security Doors but also where they are required to be.

You can contact our friendly staff for more information on what requirements may be applicable to your home.
