International Barrier Technology Releases Sales and Revenue Results for October 2007; Commercial Modular Revenue Grows 86% and Shipments Grow 75% Year to Year

WATKINS, MN and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - November 15, 2007) - International Barrier Technology Inc. ("Barrier") (OTCBB: IBTGF) (TSX-V: IBH), a manufacturer of proprietary fire-resistant building materials, shipped 611,008 square feet of Blazeguard products in the month ending October 31, 2007, resulting in $403,556 in revenue. Shipments into the commercial modular sector rose 75% from 329,700 square feet in October 2006 to 577,800 square feet. The revenue generated in this sector increased by 86% year over year. Total sales volumes are down 265,392 square feet from last year's shipments of 876,400 square feet, as is revenue ($652,229 in 2006). Ironically, of that total, we shipped 269,600 square feet into Florida last year.

Barrier's President and CEO, Michael Huddy, recently traveled to Florida to visit local distributors and current Residential Roof Deck projects. "While the region is still impacted by existing inventory of unoccupied units, Florida is beginning to see activity," states Dr. Michael Huddy. "Some builders are recovering faster than others. Multifamily builders with projects in prime locations and in the right price range seem to have moved their inventories and are cautiously laying the ground work for new projects. Other higher-end builders are still being directly impacted by the slow market. Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing was installed in several of the active projects visited and could be seen on the job-site of many others in the Tampa area. We are confident as the multifamily construction recovers, builders will continue to choose Blazeguard to meet their fire code requirements."
