EMBER / FIRE STOPPING VENTS - WUI COMPLIANT

The Brandguard Advantage

Brandguard Vents offers a unique patented solution that stops both embers and fire from entering your home. Brandguard 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.

Brandguard Vents’ comprehensive product range includes gable, soffit, undereave, foundation, ridge, and dormer vents. Our vents are manufactured with the highest-quality standards in durable galvanized steel or optional stainless steel and copper. Brandguard Vents’ authorized contractors will take care of the installation and custom painting so the vents will blend seamlessly with the color of your house.
Make your neighborhood safer by using wildfire-rated vents manufactured in the USA.

Soffit/Undereave Vents

We offer a large variety of ember/fire-stopping soffit and undereave vent options to meet your home’s specific requirements.  Brandguard Vents are made out of metal and comply with the most stringent requirements of the WUI code for use in high fire risk zones.

Foundation Vents

Foundation vents will not only protect your home from embers, but they’ll also ventilate your crawl space or basement. Prevent musty air, and say goodbye to mildew, mold, and wood rot. These vents are easy to install without disturbing your siding or stucco. 

Round Vents

All embers need to penetrate your home are a few entry points, so our round vents keep wind-blown embers outdoors where they belong. They’ll keep your structural wood safe and reduce wildfire exposure to boot.  

Dormer Vents

Our fire-resistant dormer vents protect your home from outside forces, like embers, rain, snow, and pests, while still allowing uninterrupted air circulation through your attic. Brandguard dormers are available for new construction or retrofit applications. The retrofit dormer “face” is installed onto existing traditional vents, without removing roof tiles. The installation is quick and easy.

Low-Profile Retrofit Vents

If you already have existing low-profile roof vents, turbine, or mushroom vents, our sub base vents can be installed to convert your current vents into ember-resistant ones. Retrofitting your vents will offer you critical fire safety and make your vents WUI-compliant. Brandguard sub base vents are installed from the attic, without touching your existing low-profile vents.

Ridge Vents

Ridge vents won’t disrupt the look of your home, as they are virtually unnoticeable upon installation. It is an ideal choice if your pitched roof is made of asphalt, slate, or cedar shingles.

Removable Balcony Vents

All wood frame balconies in multifamily dwellings in California must be inspected at regular intervals to comply with the recent Senate Bill. Brandguard Vents has developed an innovative vent that provides proper air circulation while protecting the structures from flying embers. Our balcony vents are the only product on the market that is fully compliant with the WUI code. Their easy opening and closing allow for regular inspections without any damage to the balcony itself.
