Addressing the country's rapid population growth requires new architectural solutions. Traditionally, the approach has been to expand horizontally or vertically. Another viable option is to construct buildings closer together. However, as buildings become more compact and closely situated, architects and designers must give careful consideration to fire separation.

Fire protecting openings close to boundaries: Understanding National Construction Code requirements and effective methods of protection discusses the principles of fire separation and evaluates different methods for protecting openings close to property boundaries. Fire from one building can easily spread to a neighbouring property through unprotected openings. The challenge for design professionals is how to reduce the spread of flame while still maintaining a functional and aesthetic building that is attractive to occupants. Compared to other solutions, fire attenuation screens stand out due to their versatility, cost effectiveness and functionality.

Crimsafe supplies security solutions to protect homes and businesses in Australia and overseas. Their Fire Attenuation screens are a performance-based solution, designed to meet the National Construction Code to help reduce the level of radiant heat and spread of fire.

  • Unprotected or improperly protected openings can be dangerous as they provide pathways for fire and smoke to spread to neighbouring buildings.
  • Fire attenuation screens are specifically designed with the purpose of reducing the transmission of radiant heat between different areas, thereby mitigating the potential for fire to spread between buildings.
