The 2010 BCA and amended AS3959 cover all aspects of the external built environment, including windows and doors. AS3959 outlines different construction practices and building materials for five bushfire hazard levels, known as Bushfire Attack Levels (BALs).

BAL 12.5: Low
BAL 19: Moderate
BAL 29: High
BAL 40: Very High
BAL FZ: Flame Zone

Consult your local council, government or local fire authority to determine your home’s BAL rating and any special requirements for building in your area,

Once you have your BAL rating, you can trust Westal to deliver windows and doors to suit your requirements without compromise.
