The EmberArresta™ Gutter Outlet & or Downpipe valves are designed to protect your property from Ember Attack from bushfires. Embers from bush fires can travel up to 3 kilometres ahead of an approaching fire front and by installing EmberArresta™ valves to your guttering or downpipes, you can easily add another valuable tool to your fire defence kit.

More than 80 per cent of homes are lost to ember attack and resulting ‘fine fuel’ ignition of debris in the guttering and other fuels lying around your property.

With these valves, you can help prevent ‘fine fuel’ ignition in guttering and reduce the incidence of any fires starting in your roof space, verandas, patio or attic. They can also protect your stored water supply and water tanks from contamination caused by soot, ash and fire retardants.

Available in both 90 mm and 75 mm, these valves can easily fit almost any sized or shaped outlets – directly to most gutter outlets or as an inline valve – allowing your guttering to be filled to a safe level with water before the approaching threat of fire or ember attack.

UV tested and ultrasonically welded, all components are made with food grade materials and lubricants, making it safe to use with stored water supplies. Its unique sliding seal can easily be opened and closed early in preparation for fire by anyone without using a ladder in adverse conditions. You can also use optional Radiant Heat Shields to protect your EmberArresta™ valves if there is flammable material or vegetation close by.

EmberArresta™ valves now give you the option to stay and protect your property or leave early, knowing your gutters will remain full of water, adding another level of fire defence.
