The Xtreme bushfire window and door system from Trend Windows & Doors has been assessed and is rated to the highest standard in AS3959-2009, which is “full flame zone” or AS1530.8.2. This standard applies to products that can meet the extreme conditions of direct exposure to flames from fire front, in addition to heat flux and ember attack.
The system combines Trend Windows & Doors’ CSIRO-tested BAL 40 (1530.8.1-2007) Xtreme window and door system with Pyro-Protec seals and glazing systems, standard 5 mm or 6 mm toughened glass and the Smoke Control CSIRO-tested (1530.4) Windowshield fire curtain. Together, these components produce the Xtreme Flame Zone bushfire system.
This latest development is a result of Trend Windows & Doors’ ongoing research and development and extensive testing with CSIRO over the past five years, aimed at developing cost-affordable window and door systems that will withstand the extremes of bushfire attack.
Smoke Control is a market leader for fire and smoke control within buildings. The company’s extensive experience with fire protection and fire engineering has brought it together with Trend to form this innovation.
