Update browser notification


To continue to provide you with the best experience online, Bunnings is adhering to changing web environments and security protocols by removing support of TLS 1.0 from April 2018. TLS, or Transport Layer Security, is required for secure Internet communication.

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard stipulates that the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol can no longer be used for secure communications. Any web servers which still support TLS 1.0 or below will fail the PCI standards and therefore will not be allowed to take credit card payments online. The PCI DSS standards can be read in full here: https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/document_library?category=pcidss&document=pci_dss

Bunnings follows the PCI standards to keep our customer’s credit card details secure. Bunnings never collects customers credit card details, and customers must either update their browsers or switch to TLS 1.1 or above to maintain security, ensuring orders can be completed successfully.

Internet properties

Firefox

Option 1 (Preferred) – Upgrade to the latest version of Firefox at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/desktop/

  1. Type about:config into the address bar
  2. Select 'I accept the risk!' if you are shown a warning message
  3. Type security.tls.version.min into the search box.
  4. Double-click on the security.tls.version.min row
  5. Change the value from '1' to '2' (0 means SSL 3.0, 1 means TLS 1.0, 2 means TLS 1.1 etc)
  6. Click 'OK'
  7. Changing the setting will force Firefox to use TLS 1.1 or better

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
