About

According to Australian Standards AS 3959, bushfire intensity levels are divided into 6 Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL):

1. BAL Low
2. BAL 12.5
3. BAL 19
4. BAL 29
5. BAL 40
6. BAL Flame Zone

A BAL score is calculated based on a number of different factors, including the Fire Danger Index, slope of the land, region, type and proximity of vegetation and proximity to a proposed building.

Building construction requirements under Australian Standards increase according to the BAL score, ranging from ember protection to direct flame contact protection.

Maintaining the appropriate response to bushfire risk may be a complex, onerous and time consuming process. The consequences of getting it wrong can be disastrous.

The team at WA BAL Report can help you easily navigate and comply with the relevant provisions of Australian Standards AS 3959.

The state government has released a map showing bushfire prone areas in Western Australia. If your property is in the pink area you will need a BAL report before a building permit can be issued. Here is a link to the map:
