Bushfire Compliant Vents
Bush Fire Rated Vents
Bush fires are a constant and increasing threat for not only rural and semi-rural Australian dwellings and businesses but even homes around large parks and coastal areas (often bound with shrubs, trees and vegetation).
Fires are increasing in frequency and severity and it is a common concern for many that their homes may not be equipped to withstand a local fire or an advancing ember attack caused by a bushfire.
These scenarios have had a massive affect on many Australians in the last 10 years with highly destructive fires becoming more common as the Australian (and global) climate changes. Whether you live in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria or any of the other states and territories you need to do as much as you can to keep your home and your family safe and HVS can help you do this.
The Dragon Vent – Bushfire Safe Vents Built For Australian Conditions
The CSIRO tests all products that are designed and used in Australia for fire defense and prevention, allowing builders and consumers to appropriately select materials and products that suit the fire threat level of their environment. The rating system in use with the Australian Standards code is the BAL (Bushfire Attack Level). The levels range from BAL Low 12.5, where the property is not expected to face any fire threat, up to BAL FZ or Flame Zone, where the property is considered to be at risk of loss when facing flames, embers and heat. The CSIRO advises that locations rated BAL FZ are ill-suited for construction.
The Dragon Venting Products are compliant from BAL 12.5 – BAL40, which is the rating directly below Flame Zone and for steel framed home our DV280 is FZ compliant. This means the Dragon Vent systems can be used at any location that the CSIRO has deemed fit for human occupation with regards to fire threat. The Dragon Venting product range helps to protect your home from fire danger by withstanding the high heats of a fire and excluding and minimizing the entry of embers into your home, which prevent the seeds of a fire from being sown. If you need bushfire compliance in your home, the Dragon Vent is a very good solution.
