Innovative roofing products company Trac Group Holdings has secured bushfire zone certification for its Tractile Interlocking Roof System.
The certifications comes after National Association of Testing Authorities-registered laboratory Exova Wardingtonfire ran simulated bushfire attacks test on the roofing system.
Trac Group Holdings director Bertio Terpstra said the innovative roofing tiles passed the BAL 40 rating test with flying colours.
“BAL 40 certified means that we can now install Tractile in areas rated by councils to be BAL 40,’’ said Mr Terpstra.
“This is the highest rating where residential buildings are still allowed, with the next level being a fire zone, where councils will not allow houses to be built.”
Mr Terpstra said the innovative roofing technology company had made significant gains with its push to commercialise its award-winning building products
“We have developed a world-beating technology product and we are now working to secure relationships with distribution partners throughout the world,” he said
“We now manufacture and distribute in Australia and Malaysia and the company has immediate plans to expand into the Middle East, South-East Asia, North America, China, and Europe.”
Trac Group has spent $3 million over the past eight years researching, developing, testing and marketing its range of products including its revolutionary roof tiles and its Tractile Solar Energy Roof Tile.
