At Brandguard Vents, we manufacture all of our vent products with the highest quality standards in durable galvanized steel and optional stainless steel, Zinc-Aluminum alloy coated steel, or Copper. Proudly manufactured in the USA, our vents can be painted to match the color of your house and are available with different installation flange options.
Galvanization is the process of coating steel in zinc. It’s a popular material for everything from car bodies to appliances and nuts and bolts. Galvanized steel vents provide considerable benefits, including durability, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. Galvanized steel resists rusting and, like other steels, is fully recyclable.
This metallic coated carbon steel product is an excellent corrosion resistant material.
The coating is an alloy composed of aluminum and zinc. It is applied on the steel sheet using a hot dip process. The result is highly corrosion resistant coated steel that
combines the barrier protection and extended durability of aluminum
with the galvanic protection of zinc.
Stainless steel has substantial advantages in structural use where fire risk is considered. It has the highest fire rating of all metals. Durable, corrosion-resistant, and cost-effective, stainless steel is an excellent choice for fire safety and prevention when it comes to construction materials, especially closer to the ocean where salty air is a concern.
Copper vents are durable and require little to no maintenance. They naturally produce patina over time, do not rust or deteriorate, and enhance the distinct look of a home’s architecture. A sustainable material, copper is considered a hallmark of green building practices.
Brandguard Vents’ products feature a patented design that exceeds industry standards and is approved for use in “Very High Fire Threat Zones.” They’ve been accepted and used throughout California since 2008 and have been tested to ASTM standards. Brandguard Vents did so well in ASTM E2886 testing that they are listed to the highest gold standard of fire vent approvals: The California State Fire Marshal’s Office Building Materials Listing Program. Our vents show excellent resistance to direct flames, embers, and radiant heat and have also passed stringent driving rain tests. You should use nothing less than the highest level of protection for your home and family.
Brandguard Vents are simple to install, retrofit, and paint and come in a wide range of custom colors and sizes. We also offer full installation services for California homes. Contact us today to learn more.
