BUSH FIRE ATTACK LEVELS (BAL)
Recent changes have seen many properties in Western Australia deemed to be in an “At Risk” area for Bush Fires and now require a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) Assessment.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU
If your property is deemed as “At Risk” you will need to engage a qualified Assessor to carryout an assessment for you and determine the BAL.
The Assessor will make a determination of the BAL category you fall within, it may range from a Low Risk to a High Risk, they will certify it as one of the following; BAL-Low, BAL-12.5, BAL-19, BAL-29, BAL-40 BAL-FZ(flame zone).
Meeting the requirements in our Transportable Buildings and Park Homes can be relatively simply achieved with minimal additional expense for BAL-Low, BAL-12.5 and BAL-19 however BAL-29, BAL-40 & BAL-FZ will have a greater impact on the cost of construction.
1. Firstly you need to ascertain if you are in an area deemed to be “At Risk”. Simply access this link to check your property https://www.dfes.wa.gov.au/regulationandcompliance/bushfireproneareas/Pages/default.aspx
2. If your property is shaded or partly shaded in the pink/purple haze you will most likely need to have it assessed.

3. Please feel free to call Cavalier Portables (08) 9459 6000 if you have any further questions or require assistance, we are happy to share our understanding of the requirements with you.
The information we have received is that used buildings must now meet the requirements of the BAL, this is possible to achieve in some circumstances, however the extent of the modifications will depend on construction type and materials of each building and of course the BAL.
