Exterior fire rated coating solutions

Camerons H Hardware are excited to present FIRESHELL F1E – an exterior rated, flexible 1-part, self priming intumescent fire resistant paint for use on a variety of timbers.

Camerons are exclusive agents for FIRESHELL F1E for the South Coast, ACT and Snowy Mountains

Using pine cedar and other soft woods to comply in bushfire zones has been a difficult task – until now.

This new technology allows builders and home owners to utilise traditional building materials in bushfire zones, simplifying construction and reducing costs.

F1E meets the requirements for bushfire-resisting timber specified in AS3959:2009 Construction of Buildings in bushfire-prone area Appendix F. Bushfire-resisting timber is timber that is deemed to be acceptable to withstand exposure up to a BAL—29 condition. And where exterior fire resistant paint applications and bush fire resistant timber are required.

FIRESHELL F1E eliminates issues previously associated with external fire rated coatings. This is the next generation technology for increasing the fire resistance of external timbers,’ says EXFIRE director Cameron Watkin. ‘This is the next generation technology for increasing the fire resistance of external timbers’ EXFIRE is a fire-rated coating solutions company that utilises state-of- the-art technology from fire protection experts TPR2, focusing on customised solutions to meet the needs of the Australian building industry. ‘Understanding the requirements for building in a bushfire zone can sometimes be confusing,’ Cameron says. ‘We have an in-depth knowledge of the industry and are always available to answer any questions regarding our systems and achieving compliance for your specific situation.’ FIRESHELL F1E’s versatility and exterior capabilities have already seen it used to achieve compliance on a variety of projects across Australia. In addition to the AS3959-compliant applications to weatherboards, decking substructures, fences and other exposed timbers, FIRESHELL F1E has been used on a number of government projects including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, motorway developments, NSW light rail projects, and Department of Housing asset protection. It has also been used in utility pole applications to reduce risk of ignition and prevent flame spread on external combustible surfaces.
