Advising of the relevant BAL the building needs to meet

The Bushfire Attack Level BAL—LOW is based on insufficient risk to warrant specific bushfire construction requirements. It is predicated on low threat vegetation and non vegetated areas. * BAL—12.5 is primarily concerned with protection from ember attack and radiant heat up to and including 12.5 kW/m2 where the site is less than 100 m from the source of bushfire attack. * BAL—19 is primarily concerned with protection from ember attack and radiant heat greater than 12.5 kW/m2 up to and including 19 kW/m2. * BAL—29 is primarily concerned with protection from ember attack and radiant heat greater than 19 kW/m2 up to and including 29 kW/m2. * BAL—40 is primarily concerned with protection from ember attack, increased likelihood of flame contact and radiant heat greater than 29 kW/m2 and up to and including 40 kW/m2. * BAL—FZ is primarily concerned with protection from flame contact together with ember attack and radiant heat of more than 40 kW/m2. Construction in BAL—FZ may require reliance on measures other than construction. The requirements for construction of a building BAL—FZ may be regulated by the building authorities having jurisdiction in the States and Territories of Australia.
