What products does Perth Homeguard offer to protect my home from fire?
Actually, most of the products offered by Perth Homeguard assist against bush fires, including our aluminium roller shutter doors, curtain walls, and stainless steel mesh systems. We provide products that ‘double up’ as far as security is concerned. Our products are tested to be resistant to bush fires, bullets, burglars, pressure, knives, heat, cold, wind, frost, moisture, and many other elements. They can also reduce noise and enhance thermal efficiency.
What is a curtain wall?
A curtain wall is most frequently seen in office blocks. It is a ‘wall’ of glass held together with a steel/aluminium frame. Due to its design, it is resistant to fire – there is no flammable materials used in the construction and nothing for a fire to burn up. We offer Ponzio PF 152 Mullion fire resistant curtain walls. This signifies that the curtain wall is fire resistant as per official standards. The 152 system allows the construction of straight or arched aluminium architectures with both external and internal corners. It also allows for interior gardens. The width of mullions and transoms is 52 mm.
How is the fire resistance of glass classified?
Glass can be classified as either E, EW, or EL. EL represents the top range of fire resistance. The 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 digits after the EL denotes how many minutes the glass remains resistant to the flames. Our glass resistant fire system is available in EL 30 and EL 60. To achieve a fire rating, panels of glass are exposed to heat and flames, and their durability is tested over time. Glass is also tested for the level of impact it can withstand and how resistant it is to bullets. At least, Perth Homeguard performs these tests in line with the relevant rules and regulations.
What regulatory standards are your fire systems compliant with?
All of our products are tested through the National Authority of Testing Australia (‘NATA’) which is the premier organization for the testing of products and services so they are in compliance with official regulations. Our products are Bush Fire Tested and Floating Ember Safe. AS 1530.8.1 is the bushfire testing regulation providing the techniques for assessing the performance of external construction elements when exposed to radiant heat and burning embers. This test simulates the radiant heat from a bushfire and further mimics small amounts of accumulated burning organic debris to ensure the product is floating ember safe.
Are fire systems in Perth really necessary?
Perth actually suffers from bushfires and fires, in general, more than most other regions in Australia. And Australia as a whole is actually quite prone to bushfires compared to other countries due to its climate. Estimates of the damage caused by bushfires alone are around $10 billion per year. In early 2021 alone, over 70 homes in Perth were destroyed in a single bushfire. With increasingly volatile weather conditions, fire systems are more necessary than ever.
Does Perth Homeguard offer internal fire systems?
We provide installation of the PONZIO PE78EI fire system. This allows for both internal and external firewalls. These are glass panels that are fire and smoke resistant and also offer a high level of thermal insulation. You can install these inside your home as a mechanism of slowing down an internal fire, which will allow residents time to evacuate safely. This is a 3 chamber system also offering acoustic insulation.
