Protection from wildfires and embers

An ember catching screen block embers during ember attacks before the fire arrives. When wildfires nears and reaches critical temperature, the intumescent coating on the matrix structure expands, creating a "firewall".

Vulcan Vents are the only vents that meet both the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) and the one (1) hour fire test standards for the exterior of buildings while providing the proper amount of ventilation to attic and crawl spaces in building structures. The vents are easy to install in both new and retrofit conditions, are made of high quality materials and quality construction.

Vulcan Vent

The core of our fire and ember safe vents are manufactured out of high grade aluminum honeycomb and coated with an intumescent coating made by FireFree Coatings. The intumescent coating is designed to quickly swell up and close off when exposed to high heat. The expanded material acts as an insulator to heat, fire and embers.
