Many people dream of living within reasonably close to the city while still enjoying bushland surrounds. But this dream comes with serious risks, and you need to understand the correct Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) for your new home’s construction or renovation.

Each BAL rating has different requirements, which dictate both the construction method and materials used. There are six BAL ratings, and councils are required to map bushfire prone land and categorise it using the BAL rating system below:

  • BAL12.5
  • BAL19
  • BAL 29
  • BAL40
  • BAL FZ

Please see our Product Information for the BAL Ratings for each product to see if the product suits your requirements.
