BAL FZ Certified.

ModnPods are pleased to be able to offer Bushfire resilient modular buildings. 

Protect your assets.

At ModnPods, we prioritise your safety and peace of mind when it comes to bushfire resilience. Understanding the Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of your property is crucial in assessing the potential risks associated with bushfires. Our team of passionate designers have developed a Signature ModnPods methodology specifically for BAL to ensure your modular buildings are designed and constructed to withstand varying levels of bushfire exposure.

The BAL, a standardised rating system across Australia, quantifies the potential severity of ember attack, radiant heat, and direct flame contact a building may face. It is measured in kilowatts per square metre, with higher numbers indicating greater risk. ModnPods offers modular pods designed to meet all BAL classifications, adhering to the Australian Standard for construction in bushfire-prone areas. These classifications determine the materials and construction requirements for your project.

Our BAL FZ Methodology is a culmination of years of research and development and consultation between designers, certifiers and fire consultants. We are proud to be able to offer this certification to our customers.

The six BAL classifications we’re certified to manufacture to include:


Very low risk, requiring minimal construction measures.

BAL 12.5

Low risk, focusing on ember attack prevention.

BAL 19

Moderate risk, addressing ember attack and exposure to up to 19kW/sqm of heat flux.

BAL 29

Increased risk, covering ember attack and exposure to up to 29kW/sqm of heat flux.

BAL 40

High risk, dealing with ember attack, exposure to up to 40kW/sqm of heat flux, and increased likelihood of direct flame exposure.


Extreme risk, encompassing ember attack, direct flame exposure, and heat flux exceeding 40kW/sqm.
