Why use the Ember Defender?
CSIRO state that over 90 percent of all houses burnt in a bushfire are caused by ember attack and not radiant heat or flame.
The Ember Defender roof mounted sprinkler system is designed to reduce the impact of ember attack on your home in the event of a bushfire.
Fire Protection Association (FPA) Australia state that a bushfire sprinkler system, or an external water sprinkler system, can be a major factor in protecting homes built in bushfire-prone areas.
