Home Fire Protection

You can be proactive during the bush fire season and help protect your home by having Redshaw install an Ember Defender.

The Ember Defender sprinkler system is designed to reduce the impact of an ember attack on your home during the event of a bush fire. With over 54,000 fires per year within Australia (source), this system is specifically designed for the Australian home owner.

In fact, the CSIRO states that an ember attack is the most common cause of homes catching alight during a bush fire (source), with research showing that over 90% of buildings are lost without any direct flame contact or intense radiant heat from the fire front itself.

The unique design of the Ember Defender allows installation on most roof types, with an adjustable base feature to suit any pitch roof. Most households will require multiple Ember Defender units to be installed on the roof to give complete coverage, and all systems can be fed from your town water supply or from a rainwater tank.
