Fully Tested and Certified
The Vulcan Vents are the only fire-resistant vents that meet both the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) and the one (1)-hour fire test standards for the exterior of buildings -- all while providing the proper amount of ventilation to attic and crawl spaces in building structures. Vulcan Vents have:
Successfully passed the ASTM testing standards for ember and flame intrusion (ASTM E 2886 and ASTM E 2886M).
Are listed by California State Fire Marshal for use in the Wildland Urban Interface wildfires, under category 8165 of the Building Material Listing Program.
Were the first to be listed in the California Building Code (Chapter 7A).
Vulcan Vents have also passed the one (1) hour fire test under the ASTM E 119 one (1) hour fire test standard. This standard is applicable in property side yard setback issues where a one (1) hour fire rating is being required.
Easy to use and install
Our fire and ember-resistant vents are easy to install in both new construction (which use fewer vents and reduce construction costs) and retrofit conditions (no need for new vent openings, which results in easy, inexpensive "switch over"). The Vulcan Vents are made of high-quality materials and quality construction. We can provide you with consulting services for fire retardant construction, including the use of the Vulcan Vents. They can be used in numerous materials, such as wood, stucco, mil core, foam back, and fiber cement. Available in many formats such as continuous, dormer, eave, foundation, gable, retrofit, soffit, and custom applications.
