CSIRO Bushfire Testing

The original design of the High Performance Bushfire Weepa was the result of extensive testing undertaken at CSIRO Manufacturing & Infrastructure Technology, at Ryde in Sydney, NSW.

The simulated bushfire exposure consisted of radiant heat and ember attack.

Please note that CSIRO have discontinued appraisal updates since our original testing.  

We now rely on new independent testing undertaken in April 2019 at the BRANZ laboratory, located in the beautiful Upper Hutt region in New Zealand.

BRANZ are accredited to test in accordance with AS1530.8.1:2018.
