Experts in Bushfire Screens Perth
Australian bush fires are a widespread and regular occurrence that will only get more widespread and regular as climate change makes weather events more extreme. Bush fires can also spread incredibly quickly, and the advice of firefighting authorities to property owners is always to leave and find safety. But how do you protect your property when you’re not there?
At Perth Homeguard we’ve spent decades manufacturing, installing and bush fire rated screens in Perth that are designed to do just that. These screens are designed to keep the fire out of the house, to increase the likelihood of your property making it through the blaze.
What are bushfire screens?
Bush fire rated screens are designed to protect your home from airborne embers and even direct flames. They are generally made from fire-resistant stainless steel, and are tested to ensure that they don’t let flames or embers through, and that they avoid transmitting high levels of heat into the home.
All bush fire rated screens must be manufactured to Australian Standard 3959-2009, and are tested before they are allowed to be sold.
Benefits of installing bushfire screens
✔️ Keep fire out of your home
✔️ Reduce heat by up to 90%
✔️ Prevent fire debris from entering
✔️ Peace of mind during bushfire warnings
✔️ Ease of operation even in a power outage
How to know if bushfire screens are right for your home
Perth is no stranger to the impact of bushfires. Sadly, the Wooroloo bushfire of 2020/21 destroyed over 80 homes, damaging many along the way.
If you live in a bushfire prone area like Perth and surrounds, you should absolutely consider protecting your home with screens.
Windows and doors can literally shatter under pressure and heat from bushfires. These openings allow fire to quickly enter, catching all of the flammable items in their wake. This speeds up the spread and can lead to tragic destruction. By preventing entry through windows and doors, you are limiting how fire can enter the home in the first place.
What To Look For When Installing This Type of Screens?
There are plenty of features you should be on the lookout for when you shop around for the best screens for your home. Here are some that you should consider:
Strong screen material: not all materials are created equal. You want one that is made from aluminium, steel or metal for added strength.
Style: window screens have come a long way and you now have plenty of choices when it comes to choosing the right style for you.
