Windows and Doors in Bushfire Prone Areas


Building a new home or carrying out renovations to your existing house? Heatseal’s Window & Door systems can help you to comply with the Australian Standards AS 3959:2018 Construction of Buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas.

Here at Heatseal, Our UPVC window frames have been developed and tested specifically to meet construction requirements for designated Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL) within Australian Standards for Construction in Bushfire Prone Areas (AS 3959:2018). UPVC windows with metal reinforcing are permitted in zones classified as up to BAL-29 risk. Our uPVC window system has been independently tested and we are proud to produce the only UPVC system in Australia to comply with AS 1530.8.1 which permits their use in zones BAL-40 and above.

As part of its commitment to raising the built performance standard of windows & doors in Australia, The Australian Glass & window Association (AGWA) have provided a guide to the different construction requirements for windows and doors at each Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) which you can download & Read Here.
