BAL Rated – Vent and Flashing Kit

In Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) areas, the Australian Standard limits the use of PVC exposed above the roofline.  The minimal test to BAL12.5 has shown that temperatures can reach 160°C, this far exceeds the melting point of PVC of 85°C.  With the risk of PVC melting, it has the potential of exposing a gap greater than 3mm making it non-compliant to the Australian Standard AS 3959:2018.

Our BAL rated ‘Drainage Vent & Flashing Kit’ comes with a ‘50mm Steel Corrosion Resistant Pipe’ with an integrated ‘Steel Mesh Cowl’ that complies to the requirements of the Australian Standard AS 3959:2018.  

Under the roofline, the ‘Insulated PVC Adaptor’ has been created to withstand any heat transfer when adapted to the 50mm PVC pipe below.
