Performance & Testing
Fire Attenuation Testing
Fire attenuation, simply put, is the lessening of energy as a result of the presence of a screen.
Prevents the spread of fire
The screen’s presence reduces the amount of energy passing through to an observer from an energy source from what would be the case had the screen not been in place between the source and the observer.
The Building Code of Australia requires fire attenuation screening to certain classes of building based on the distance from the designated fire boundary or from other buildings on the same allotment, and dictates the incident energy to be applied to the attenuating screen.

Their purpose is to reduce any radiant heat transmitted from one area to another, helping to prevent the spread of fire between buildings.
