The San Bernardino Mountains regularly experience Wildland and forest fires that threaten homes and lives. In 2003, the Old Fire, burned 91,281 acres of land, 993 homes and caused the mandatory evacuation of over 80,000 mountain residents, as well as the tragic deaths of 6 people. The Slide and Grass Valley fires in 2007, burned over 14,000 acres of land, destroyed 375 homes and caused the evacuation of thousands of people.

In wildfires, most homes are destroyed by windblown flames and embers that enter the home and ignite fires, causing destruction from within. Many incorrectly assume that most fire damage is done by a wall of flames passing through the structure. Research has shown that this is not the case. Other vents are designed only for ventilation, allowing air to flow easily through a simple mesh screen. This means that flames, sparks, and burning embers can also easily pass through the vents thereby entering the home and igniting dry materials inside. Brandguard Vents™ provide excellent ventilation while also trapping flames and embers before they enter the home. In this way, Brandguard Vents defend against wildfires and help save homes!

Brandguard Vents were invented by a fireman. Founder, Brent Berkompas says "I've seen first-hand how windblown flames and embers can burn a house down in minutes. So I invented these flame and ember resistant vents to save homes."
