Fire Attenuation

Fire attenuation screens are designed to resist radiant heat to minimise the risk of fire spreading between buildings.

The purpose of a fire attenuation screen is to increase the chance of people safely leaving a building under threat of fire and reduce the intensity of the fire impact whilst the fire is being brought under control.

Miminise the risk of fire with Amplimesh® Fire Attenuation Screens

The National construction code requires that openings within buildings less than 3m from a property boundary or within 6m of another building in the same allotment must be protected from fire.

Amplimesh® Fire Attenuation screens have been subjected to two hours of rigorous testing by the CSIRO and in accordance with relevant Australian Standards. During testing, Amplimesh® OneFrame and SupaScreen® was subjected to an irradiance heat of 40kW/m2 for a period of 2-hours and demonstrated a reduction to radiant heat by up to 59%, significantly lowering the threat of fire.

* Insect or security mesh provides an effective barrier to insects larger than the stated aperture of the mesh. Insects smaller than the stated aperture may not be impeded.

** Bushfire Testing for SupaScreen® (Australian Standard AS3959-2018). SupaScreen® has been independently tested to meet the requirements for BAL-40 (Bushfire Attack Level). When used in bushfire prone areas rated BAL-FZ SupaScreen® must be used in conjunction with a window that has an FRL of at least -/30/- or in accordance with AS1530.8.2.
