Hoop faced, fire retardant panel

Achieve a natural timber finish and meet BCA Fire Hazard regulations with Austral FR Panel. The Austral FR Panel is the perfect interior wall and ceiling panel that is:

  • Group 2 compliant (BCA Specification C1.10a)
  • Natural Hoop Pine veneer face
  • Fire retardant MDF core
  • E0/E1 formaldehyde rating
  • Chain of Custody certified (AS 4707:2014)
To our knowledge, there is no plywood product on the market that meets Group 1 under AS 5637.1.

Please note: The Group certificate supplied on this page for the Austral FR Panel relates to the solid Austral FR Panel only. If Austral FR Panel is slotted or perforated it will affect the fire retardancy of the panel and will not be covered by the Briggs Veneers Group 2 certificate for Hoop Pine on Flameblock FRMDF. (Where a fire certificate is required for slotted or perforated Austral FR Panel, the specifier will be responsible for conducting testing to Australian Standards, at their expense).
