With the rapid increase of BAL (bushfire attack level) rated areas across Australia, the requirement for BAL rated products has never been more important.
ITI Australia, the country’s largest independent timber wholesaler, have partnered with Wood Modification Technologies to develop and patent dFx®.
dFx® is a world first technology, combining a flame retardant and preservative into the one process. FLAMEfixx® products have been certified and tested by BRANZ and comply with Australian Standard 3959-2009 and 2018 for BAL-29 conditions.
When using timber in a BAL rated area, builders and home owners were limited to hardwoods and a small range of other specialty products. With the introduction of FLAMEfixx® products, builders and home owners now have a more cost effective solution that is easy to work with. FLAMEfixx® is sourced from sustainable resources, environmentally friendly and safe for use in high-contact areas.
FLAMEfixx dFx® is currently available in 90 x 22mm decking boards, 68 x 19mm screening and a range of structural timber, commonly used for bearers and joists. All FLAMEfixx® products are edge branded with the BAL-29 Australian Standard number, making it easier for certification once installed.
FLAMEfixx® products are available to order through leading timber and hardware suppliers throughout Australia.
