Australia’s largest range of BAL-40 bushfire rated windows and doors just got bigger with the addition of newly tested and certified products to the collection.
Architectural Window Systems (AWS) began a massive exercise last year to get their products to undergo BAL-40 bushfire testing work in order to significantly increase their BAL-40 bushfire tested and certified aluminium windows and doors offering.
Following the successful testing and certifications, AWS announces that they have increased their BAL-40 bushfire rated window and door offering by 33 per cent. The newly expanded collection, which includes new double-hung windows as well as a broader sliding and bi-fold door range, will allow more flexibility and choice when specifying AWS products for bushfire zones.
Living in bushfire prone areas shouldn’t mean losing out on the view. AWS’ window and door products can withstand the harsh requirements of a BAL-40 bushfire zone without compromising on size. The recent testing allows AWS to offer larger glass panel sizes as part of their offering.
The AWS range
Following up on customer requests to include laminated glass in their double glazed panel testing for achieving acoustic performance in applications requiring BAL-40 certification, AWS has successfully tested a 20.38mm IGU (6mm toughened, 8mm air, 6.38mm laminated glass).
The following products have been added to the AWS BAL-40 bushfire rated windows and doors product list:
