Actual Home SAVED by our Vents

Wildfire Home Protection

Brandguard Vents® were invented in 2003 by Brent Berkompas while working as a firefighter for the City of San Bernardino, California. He was fighting the 2003 and 2007 California wildfires and saw firsthand the vulnerability of the thousands of homes affected. Watching the embers fly directly into the homes through the unprotected mesh vent openings, Brent knew that something had to be done to prevent this from happening in the future. That was the inspiration that led to the creation of the Brandguard-patented baffle front design, now used throughout our line of wildfire rated vents. The Brandguard Vents® company is now part of TENMAT, a leading manufacturer of fire protection components and advanced materials, with over 100 years of experience.

Allow air to circulate under the floor, to prevent moisture buildup while stopping embers.


Create proper air circulation through the attic while stopping dangerous flying embers.


Permit cool fresh outside air to be drawn up into the attic so hot and humid air is expelled through the roof vents at the top. The Removable balcony vents are specifically designed to ventilate the underdeck and allow easy inspections.


Allow heat to rise and escape out of the attic while stopping hot embers from entering.


Used in conjunction with low-profile Roof Vents, they prevent the ingress of embers or firebrands. These sub bases are installed from the attic side, without disturbing roof tiles or removing the existing low-profile roof vents.


Fire/Ember resistant vents are a key home hardening measure to protect homes from wildfires. Take a look at Brandguard Vents in Action!
