Strict building regulations for building and renovating in areas in high risk of bushfires have put many conditions on all aspects of the external built-environment. After much R&D and testing Shade & Shield Shutters [Paarhammer Windows & Doors] have passed the BAL-FZ [Flame Zone] requirements, meeting AS3959-2009 and AS1530.8.2. All such products are suitable for new builds and retrofitting; and these shutters make it possible to use standard windows [using a minimum 5mm toughened glass] for BAL-FZ compliance. Moreover these shutters provide a 100% block-out of radiant heat in the hot weather, helping to keep the house cool.
