Finding a compliant cladding would not be in keeping with the existing design and would increase both costs and the timeline of the build.
Fireshell F1E was utilised to easily re-classify the pine weatherboards as bushfire resisting timber whilst meeting the code requirements for the BAL29 requirement.
The original character and design were preserved and complemented the style of surrounding buildings.
