BAL Ratings

Hume Doors & Timber has extensively tested it’s range of doors and door frame systems, which include both hinged and pivoted entry frame systems in meranti up to 2700 x 1200, to meet the AS1530.8.1 criteria set for buildings in BAL12.5 (Bushfire Attack Level – 12.5) zoned areas. 

Hume have made it easy to ensure your doors and frames are bushfire zone compliant for BAL19 & BAL29, by providing a range of doors and frames designed and manufactured to meet the specific regulatory requirements of building in designated bushfire zones 19 & 29 as specified in AS3959.

Hume’s Bushfire Resistant door range (BFR) is:

  • Suitable for BAL12.5, BAL19 & BAL29 Bushfire zones when installed as per Australian Standard AS3959-2009-AMDT3-2011
  • Solid Core Construction
  • Available in Tempered Hardboard for Paint Finish or Veneer options for Stain finish
  • Glazed with 6mm Tempered Safety Glass
  • Available in a wide range of designs

It is also important to ensure that your door frame meets the requirements of AS3959. If your door is suitable for a specific BAL level, but your frame is not, you will not be able to gain certification, as your entryway will not comply with Australian Standard AS3959 and will need to have an independent certifier sign off on the door and frame.

The Hume Weatherguard Frame in Merbau is the perfect solution for building in Bushfire zones.

  • Sill options Aluminium weatherguard or Merbau timber
  • Must be ordered in Merbau to be BAL compliant 19/29 or Maple for BAL 12.5 (please specify BAL level required when ordering)
  • Suitable for BAL12.5, BAL19 & BAL29 Bushfire zones when installed as per Australian Standard AS3959-2009-AMDT3-2011
  • Energy Efficient
  • Self-draining aluminium sill
  • 140×40 standard Weather guard frame

By pairing your Hume Bushfire Resistant Door with a Hume Weather guard Frame, you will have complied with the regulations, and ordered the products knowing you will have a complete door system that is suitable for BAL12.5, BAL19 or BAL29 Bushfire zones.
