Protecting South Australian Homes with
Ember Guards

Living in a Bushfire Zone?

Living in a fire-prone area brings with it the constant threat of bushfires. As temperatures rise and weather patterns become increasingly erratic, the risk of bushfires engulfing homes and communities has reached alarming levels in South Australia. Ember intrusion is a persistent and serious threat that residents in bushfire zones cannot afford to ignore.

Protect Yourself From Embers

Embers, also known as firebrands or flying sparks, are small burning fragments carried by wind currents, sometimes for kilometers away from the main fire front. These seemingly innocent embers have the potential to turn a calm neighborhood into a fiery nightmare. As they land on roofs, decks, and other vulnerable areas, they can ignite flammable materials, swiftly spreading fire to homes and structures that may have otherwise been beyond the immediate reach of the main blaze.

Ember intrusion is a persistent and serious threat that residents in fire zones cannot afford to ignore. Statistics show that a significant portion of home losses during bushfires can be attributed to ember ignition. Embers can exploit various entry points, such as vents, gaps in roofing materials, open windows, or even accumulate in gutters, where dry leaves and debris provide ample fuel for a potential inferno.
