Blackbutt Decking

All new structures being built in Australia must comply with Australian Standard (AS3957-2009) Building in Bushfire Prone Areas. This means that BAL rating (bushfire alert level) is required on timber decking, and more, used in these areas.

Boral has a range of Spotted Gum and Blackbutt Timber decking that are stocked by Hazelwood and Hill and reach a BAL rating of 29 (BAL 29).

There are several regulations and tips when building a deck in bushfire prone areas. The decking should be spaced to 0-5mm, so as to minimise ember attack where larger gaps 5-10mm allow spots for embers too lodge. Perforated mesh with 2mm openings can be fitted around larger gaps as ember guards. Also remember to trim back shrubs near entrances to structures and removing leaves and twigs from gutters.

If in doubt, please check with your local fire authority. Sizes available ex-stock are 130 x 19 and 86 x 19. For more information regarding Timber Decking for Bushfire Prone Areas from Hazelwood & Hill, visit hazelwoodhill.com.au.
