Technical Data

Energy Ratings

The Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) is a nationally accredited rating system that provides a scientifically based, fair and credible rating for glazed windows and doors. Energy ratings supplied by WERS are compliant with the National Construction Code and are sufficient in meeting regulatory requirements. All our products are WERS rated.

BAL Ratings

There are six different levels within the Bushfire Attack Level rating system that classify areas from low to high risk of bushfire. Bushfire prone areas are rated with a BAL of 12.5 or greater, and any structures built within these zones must comply with AS3959, the Australian standard for building in such zones. Your building will have a specific BAL rating, placing it within the range of one of the six levels beginning with ember protection through to withstanding direct flame. We can supply BAL rated products for your unique needs where required.
