During a bushfire, embers may reach your home or building 30 minutes before the actual fire may arrive. Pieces of smouldering material float through the air and if a spark or ember enters the home, it can cause ignition of combustible materials. Your house may not be in the path of the fire but may still be ignited from flying embers.
For homes or buildings in bushfire prone areas who have or propose to use corrugated or Coloubond metal roofs, it is advisable to have the optional stainless steel mesh fitted to the external perforated outlets to satisfy the building requirements in these areas of special building and compliance needs.
A stainless steel mesh (using rivets) is installed over the entry or exit openings of the units. The openings of this non-combustible mesh are less than 1.8mm in diameter, which complies with bushfire requirements. This 'mesh' has been shown to the ACT Rural Fire Service who were satisfied with it's construction and specification.
If your home is located in or near a bushfire prone area, be sure to consider this stainless steel mesh along with your 'venting' roof product.
Price for: Stainless steel mesh fitted to outlet, $12.00ea incl. GST.
