Bushfire Hazard Reduction: Ember Guard
Why do I need ember guards?
According to the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS), most houses burn in bushfires when ember on your gutters ignite a fire. Make sure to install a reliable leaf guard that will not ignite fire during intense heat or bushfire.
The leaf-litter that collects in conventional gutter 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.
