Fire Resistance

AAC materials have exceptional fire resistance and are non-combustible. In the event of fire Loxo® AAC Panels will not emit any toxic gases or vapours.


The Loxo® Panel System meets the performance requirements of P2.3.1 of the BCA for use as a Load Bearing External Wall.

Loxo is Fire rated with impressive FRL’s of 120/120/120, 90/90/90 and 60/60/60 achieved for both wall and floor applications. Applications include:
- External walls
- Boundary Walls (Zero Lot Alignment)
- Party (Partition) Walls
- Internal Partition Walls
- Floor / Celling Systems

Compliant with the Bush Fire Zone Requirements

The Loxo® Panel System also complies with all six Bush Fire Attack Level categories (BAL) for external cladding.

BAL Flame Zone; BAL 40; BAL 29; BAL 19; BAL 12.5; BAL Low.

Contact us to find out how cost effective Loxo is under any fire situation or requirement.

There are Six (6) Bushfire Attack Levels, ranging from Low to Flame Zone; these are as per table below:

BAL

Description

Requirement for External Walls

Loxo®

Low

Minim attack from radiant heat and flame. Some attack by burning debris is possible.

No special construction requirements.

12.5

Attack by burning debris is significant with radiant heat not greater than 12.5kW/m2. Specific construction requirements for ember protection and accumulation of debris are warranted.

Non-combustible material required to base of external walls up to 400mm above ground or decks.

19

Attack by burning debris is significant with radiant heat not greater than 19kW/m2. Specific construction requirements for embers and radiant heat are warranted.

Non-combustible material required to base of external walls up to 400mm above ground or decks.

29

Attack by burning debris is significant with radiant heat not greater than 29kW/m2. Specific construction requirements for ember and higher radiant heat are warranted. Some flame contact is possible.

Non-combustible material

40

Radiant heat levels and flame contact is likely to significantly threaten building integrity.

Non-combustible material or tested for bushfire resistance to AS 1530.8.1

FZ (Flame Zone)

Significant radiant heat and significant higher likelihood of flame contact from the fire front will threaten building integrity.

Non-combustible material with a minimum thickness of 90mm or an FRL of -/30/30 when tested from outside or to be tested for bushfire resistance to AS 1530.8.2
