Brandguard Vents offers a unique patented solution which stops both embers and fire from entering your home. Brandguard Vents’ ember-resistant vents are designed to stop embers from entering your home, before the fire arrives. Wildfires generate ember storms which spread the fire ahead of the actual front of the fire. Your house can be in danger even if you are 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, greatly reducing the risks associated with wildfires. Both single family and multifamily structures use open ventilation to cool attic and crawl spaces, so it is of paramount importance that those vents are fire rated. Standard Vents cannot stop embers. Only products specifically designed and tested for fire/ember resistance can be used in WUI areas.
ALL Brandguard Vents are in compliance with the new AB38 legislation, requiring home hardening measures to be implemented in fire hazard zones.
