TREND Windows & Doors’® Xtreme® range of Bushfire Window and Door products have recently been tested to the new Bushfire Construction standards (AS3959-2009 and AS1530.8.1-2007).

In a major breakthrough, the Xtreme® windows and doors range passed the standard test at the BAL-40 level without the need for screens to be fitted to the fixed sashes.

This latest development is a result of Trend Windows & Doors’® ongoing intensive research and development and extensive testing with the CSIRO over the past five years, aimed at developing cost affordable window and door systems which will withstand the extremes of bushfire attack.

Trend Windows’® Xtreme® Window and Door products, the first tested by the CSIRO under the previous standard in 2005, went on to become the clear market leader in bushfire windows and doors. The new Xtreme® Windows and Doors are now the first products tested at the CSIRO laboratories testing facility at North Ryde in Sydney.

Trend® has combined the technologically advanced Xtreme® Window and Door system with Pyro-Protec® seals and glazing systems and standard 5 mm or 6 mm toughened glass, which keeps the system affordable. This window and door system is a cost efficient solution to a problem that is fast becoming a national challenge. Double glazed energy efficient solutions are also available.

The extensive range of Xtreme® products includes window systems with sliding, casement, awning, sashless double hung, bi- fold, fixed lites in both standard frames and into Crestlite® Semi Commercial Frames.

Xtreme Doors include sliding, hinged and bi- fold in standard systems and with the Crestlite® Semi Commercial Frames.

All metal window hardware is used to comply with the new standard and insect screens are available for all windows and doors if required.

Trend Windows & Doors® is the largest manufacturer of domestic windows and doors in Australia and has the most extensive range of products and styles in the Australian marketplace.
