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.

BRANDGUARD provides advanced solutions that improve homes’ defense against wildfires, giving peace of mind to its customers.
The first step is to talk to a Brandguard customer representative who will answer any questions a customer may have and schedule an appointment.
The Brandguard Vents home hardening expert visits the property and makes an assessment.
A detailed estimate is sent within 24 hours of the appointment.
After the customer accepts, custom vents are manufactured for the home.
Your custom vents will be installed (typically within 3-4 weeks from once manufacturing begins).
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.
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.
