If you are needing to repair or rebuild after bushfires, a new, Australian Standards approved product could be very helpful.
Fireshield Fire Render, newly granted BAL-FZ accreditation, is designed to protect homes from both ember entry and flame impact. As a bonus, its insulating properties are claimed to keep the home up to 70 – 80% cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
It can be applied to new buildings and retrofitted.
The small, Aussie-battler manufacturers say it is the only render tested officially in a furnace that simulated flame zone conditions reaching temperatures of 1100-1200 degrees. They cite Test Report WFRA F91864 to confirm Fireshield’s fire resistance level of -/240/180 in accordance with AS1530.4-1997.
Seems to me a very good bushfire safety investment.
