Notes
1. The information above is a simplified version of the Bushfile Code AS3959 as at April 2014. The Bushfire Code AS3959 is subject to regular revision and as such the information above should be used as a guide only. Builders and owners should establish the appropriate window or door fire rating specifications on a per job/project basis with an approved BPAD (Building Planning & Design) consultant or certifier.
2. Even if not required Teal Windows and Doors fits seals as standard to most windows to comply with Australian Standard AS2047.
3. Teal WIndows and Doors believes the timber species listed above are the best timber species available. The timber species meet fire ratings specified in AS3959 and have proven to be the most stable and durable; and exhibit the highest performance characteristics when manufactured into timber windows and doors. Many other timber species are listed in Tables FE1, FE2 and FR2 of AS3959. However these species perform poorly when manufactured into timber windows, doors and screens.
