Australia is a well-known country for its extremely hot weather during the summer months and its bushfires as a consequence of it. At Open N Shut, we offer the best bushfire roller shutters for Adelaide & Perth clients looking for extra protection for their homes and commercial properties.

Why bushfire-rated roller shutters?

As mentioned above, Australia has gone through devastating bushfire events in the last years. The first one was in 2009 with The Black Saturday Bushfire in Victoria, killing over 173 people, some others injured, and more than 450.000 hectares of land burned.

Then, in 2019-2020 another massive bushfire happened across different estates and took around nine months to completely extinguish. As you can see, none of us is free from this type of risk. However, we can take action to protect our homes and commercial buildings by installing window bushfire roller shutters.

Types of bushfire shutters:

The Bushfire roller shutters are ideal for residential or commercial use, particularly in fire-prone areas. For this, the best option is BAL – 40 fire shutters because these shutters have superior strength and offer high-security standards and performance.

The Bushfire BAL 40 have been extensively tested by the CSIRO under severe bushfire conditions and proved to be able to withstand a maximum radiant heat exposure of 40kw/m2 after 60 minutes. As no ignition or flaming was observed throughout the test, the bushfire window shutter received a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 40.

How they work:

In most cases, houses and businesses get destroyed when extreme heat makes windows explode. After this happens, the fire can easily get into the property and spread the fire quickly across the premises. 

However, you can prevent this by installing window bushfire roller shutters to keep the fire out and protect the life of your family and employees.

It is a fact that when the fire doesn’t have any entry points, the chances of the property burning down can considerably decrease.
