With the ever increasing demand and marginalisation of available land for building houses and with bushfires becoming an increasing part of Australian climatic conditions there has never been a larger focus on building standards and codes.
Many homes lost to bush fires actually survive the main fire, only to fall victim to embers infiltrating through failed components of the building envelope. That is why Trend has developed the Xtreme range of aluminium windows and doors.
Featuring Pyro-Protec components with 5mm toughened glass, Xtreme Window and Door systems have been tested to temperatures up to 40kw/m² of heat flux (CSIRO tested) without failure.
This window system is a cost efficient solution to a problem that is fast becoming a national challenge. Products available in the Xtreme Bushfire range are awning, sliding and fixed windows, sliding, hinged and bifold doors.
