The three theats of wildfire:
Ember, Radiant Heat and Direct Flame.
EMBERS CAUSE UP TO 90% OF HOME & BUSINESS IGNITIONS
DURING WILDFIRE EVENTS
Combining the actions of forest management and creating home hardening and defensible zones around our homes using wildfire mesh, can greatly increase the number of homes protect against ember attack during a wildfire.
By combining these actions, we can create a multi-layered defense against wildfire that is more effective than relying on just one of these measures alone. Together, forest management and wildfire mesh can help to significantly reduce the risk of ember attacks and protect our homes and communities from the devastating effects of wildfires.
THE VALUE OF PASSIVE BARRIERS
Passive barriers used in structure hardening are more effective at protecting structures from ignition than defensible space and landscape scale management alone.
Passive barriers over a project life cycle costs are much more affordable and require almost no maintenance.
Every dollar spent on prevention is said to provide up to an eleven-dollar reduction in response and recovery costs
STOPPING THE SPREAD
The matchstick demonstrates that fire movement is like the domino effect. If not stopped it will continue from domino to domino until all of the dominos are over. Placing Wildfire Defense Mesh between the dominos shows that it can “break the chain of events” and stop the fire in its tracks. This protects all remaining matches from igniting
