Bushfire Home Protection.
Bushfire Protect Vents were invented in 2003 by a firefighter for the City of San Bernardino, California, USA. He was fighting the 2003 and 2007 California wildfires and saw first-hand the vulnerability of the thousands of homes affected.
Watching the embers fly directly into the homes through the unprotected mesh vent openings, he knew that something had to be done to prevent this from happening in the future. That was the inspiration that led to the creation of the Bushfire Protect-patented baffle front design, now introduced to Australia as BAL 40 rated vents. The Bushfire Protect Vents® brand is part of TENMAT, a leading manufacturer of fire protection components and advanced materials, with over 100 years of experience.

Under Floor & Foundation Vents
All Bushfire Protect Vents are manufactured from fully non-combustible steel in accordance with AS1530.1-1994 (R2016) and may be used wherever a non-combustible material is required as per National Construction Code (NCC), Building Code of Australia 2019; Volume 1: Part C1.9.e and Volume 2: Part 220.127.116.11.e.
Bushfire Protect Vents use a patented technology (overlapping baffles) which efficiently stops hot embers from entering the attic space. Flying hot embers pose a threat to any structure within 10 kilometres radius of a bushfire. Therefore, it is extremely important that ALL the openings in the building are properly equipped with Bushfire Protect Vents.
All standard Bushfire Protect Vents are made with BlueScope Galvanized Steel ready to be painted matching the existing colour of the building, and they are also available, upon request, in Stainless Steel.
