The building code has changed, so builders and contractors are requesting ember- and fire-rated vents. Make sure you have CAL Fire-approved vents in your catalog.
Our products are fully tested (ASTM E2886 and E2912) by an accredited California laboratory, listed by the CAL Fire Office of the State Fire Marshal, and compliant with California Building Code.
Brandguard Vents are in compliance with the most recent building code and WUI requirements, as well as the new legislation California AB38.

Brandguard Vents® offers a unique patented solution that keeps embers out and stop fire from entering your home. Brandguard is the ultimate ember defense component designed to stop embers from entering your home before the fire arrives. Wildfires and bush fires generate ember storms, which spread the fire ahead of the actual front of the fire.
Your house can be in danger even if you’re not directly in the path of the fire. All dwellings located in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas should be equipped with ventilation systems capable of resisting the ingress of embers, significantly reducing the risks associated with wildfires.
Single-family and multifamily structures use open ventilation to cool attic and crawl spaces, so it’s crucial that those vents are fire-rated. Standard vents cannot keep embers out. Only products specifically designed and tested for wildfire proofing can be used in WUI areas.
All Brandguard Vents® comply with the new AB38 legislation, which requires wildfire proof measures to be implemented in fire hazard zones.
Flame and Ember-Resistant Vents Are a Building Code Requirement:
Brandguard Vents®, with their overlapping baffle technology, have been accepted and used throughout California since 2008. Our state approval can be found by visiting the CAL Fire website.
ALL Brandguard Vents® have been tested to the ASTM standard E2886 and E2912, which is a three-part national test that shows resistance to direct flames, embers, and radiant heat.
Additionally, our gable and roof vents have passed stringent driving rain tests in Florida’s Miami Dade County, which prevents water leaks up to 140 mph at a rate of 8 inches of rain per hour.
From the initial estimate to the completed installation and painting, we will help coordinate the entire HOME HARDENING process.
Our customer service team will coordinate the wildfire proofing process together with the authorized installer in your area.
The vents will be fitted without disturbing your roof tiles, siding, stucco finishes, etc.
