What is the Whirlybird Ember Guard?
The Whirlybird Ember Guard is a woven mesh guard that is designed to be placed inside your whirlybird roof vent, the guard stops bushfire embers from entering your roof via the vent.
We provide guards for the three standard vent sizes. If you are unsure which guard size you need, simply measure the inside of your roof vent. The vast majority of domestic roof vents are either 350mm, 300mm or 250mm.
Installation is quick and easy, it only involves placing the guard inside your whirlybird roof vent. Please see our instruction page for the simple steps.
Our ember guards conform to the Australian Standards AS 3959 recommendations for ember guard mesh. The Australian Standards AS 3959 document is the standard for the construction of homes in bushfire prone areas.

You don’t need to worry about the Whirlybird Ember Guard changing any external appearances of your whirlybird vent, as the Whirlybird Ember Guard is hidden inside the whirlybird and cannot be seen from the outside.
