Bushfire Hazard Reduction: Ember Guard
According to the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS), most houses burn in bushfires due to ember attack. The leaf-litter that collects in conventional guttering leaf guards provides unwanted fuel build-up for a fire to ignite from flying embers – which can quickly spread to the eaves and roof cavity. This makes your gutters the most susceptible part of your home to ember attack. It is essential that you install a high quality ember guard to help protect you from bushfire danger.
The EASY FALL™ Leaf & Ember Guard provides the best protection available – leaf litter build up is reduced due to the shallow-dish effect, and burning embers will not burn through the COLORBOND® Steel.
The EASY FALL™ Leaf & Ember Guard has been independently tested by the CSIRO according to AS/NZS 1530.3:1999. Results were ZERO for Ignitabilty, Flame Propagation and Heat Release.
The NSW RFS recommend protecting your home with quality metal leafguards. It is imperative that your family has a bushfire survival plan. For more information visit:
