Brandguard Vents are fully tested by an accredited California laboratory, and listed by CAL Fire Office of the State Fire Marshal.
All our products underwent stringent ember and fire-resistant testing, according to ASTM E2886/2912 which is a three-part national test that shows resistance to Direct Flames, Hot 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 140mph at a rate of 8” of rain per hour.
Brandguard Vents use a patented technology (overlapping baffles) which efficiently stops hot embers from entering the attic space. Flying hot embers pose a threat to any structure within several miles’ radius from a wildfire. Therefore, it is extremely important that ALL the opening in the roof and foundation are properly equipped with Brandguard Vents.
All standard Brandguard Vents are made with Galvanized Steel, and they are also available, upon request, in Copper or Stainless Steel.
