As wildfires rage nearby, raging winds blow flames and embers towards homes. These flying firebrands attack homes where they are most vulnerable -- at the unprotected vent openings in the walls and attics. The openings need to be there to ventilate the structure (allowing moisture to escape year-round and preventing mold from growing inside). Yet research has shown that the greatest source of property loss is due to windblown firebrands entering structures -- even more than from direct contact with flames. In wildfires, most homes are destroyed by windblown flames and embers entering the home and igniting fires and causing destruction from within. (This is not intuitive; people typically think that most damage is done by a wall of flame in direct contact with the structure, but research proves this is not the case).
Ordinary vents are designed for ventilation to pass easily through a simple mesh screen. This means that flames, sparks, and burning embers also can easily pass through and enter the home, igniting dry material inside. Brandguard Vents™ provide excellent ventilation while trapping flames and embers BEFORE they enter the home. In this way, Brandguard Vents defend against wildfires and help SAVE HOMES
