Approx read time: 3 minutes

Building in a bushfire zone is a confusing and often frustrating process. How do you know a door is BAL compliant? Are there requirements for the frame as well? Can you have different glass options? Can you have different face options? So many questions! 

Well we have just the solution for you and we can make ordering a BAL compliant door and frame…EASY AS! 

Hume Doors & Timber have released a complete range of Bushfire Resistant Doors & Frames that have been specifically designed and manufactured to meet the specific regulatory requirements of building in designated bushfire zones as specified in AS3959. Their Bushfire Resistant doors have been extensively tested and provide a wide range of options for BAL12.5, BAL19, BAL29 and now even BAL40 bushfire zones.  

What does this mean for you? All you need is the BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) of the property you will be installing the doors in and we can provide you with a range of options from Hume’s Bushfire Resistant range to suit your situation.
