Coolum Awnings - Fire Retardent External Fabrics

back home

As a result of new legislation, arising from cladding defects on the Grenfell Towers in London, there are many external awnings on or around the structures of Class 2 to 9 buildings, that are not in compliance with new standards.

If these awnings have been purchased through one of our businesses, we may be able to supply your clients with a fire-rated certificate that complies with the new code. If you require a substitute or replacement, then we have a wide range of products that might suit your client's needs. If you require a new fabric skin to comply, then we also might be able to help you. You can view our Aluminium range of awning hoods on the following page: Call us to make a quote.

We have approved fire-rated fabrics that can be adapted to any of our range of fabric awnings. Call us to make a quote. Blind makers, Incorporating Home Point and Noosa Screens and Curtains are a Textile and Metal awning, manufacturer and supplier on the Sunshine Coast with a strong industry presence and 23 staff ready to support you with your needs. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to drop us a line.

In Summary:  All levels above level two, including ground level should have NO external blinds including straight drop (Zip type) and Folding arm awnings or other fabric canopies attached to the external walls unless they are non-flammable. The definition of a product that is non-flammable requires the substance to withstand 750 degrees for 30 minutes. In short, NOTHING containing combustible material from the third floor and above will be approved.

The first two levels can have fire retardant fabrics. Certifiers have the ability to provide compliance certificates to any existing structure. The original supplier must provide an FR rating for the fabric used in that product and the appropriate application made to a certifier in order for the awning to remain. The Certifier can approve or disapprove most applications with a common-sense approach. If we have installed a product for you, then we may be able to provide you with a flammability test report for your client's awnings or replace them with approved fabrics. Refer to the attached Advisory note or refer to C1.10 of the national Construction code.

It is our recommendation that you always consult your preferred Certifier before completing the installation of any awning on your Class 2 to 9 building and contact them to clarify what can and can't be installed.
