A recent study by the Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre, the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO has predicted that more frequent and hotter bushfire seasons could be expected across Australia's south-east.
The Leafman Australia has seen first hand over the years various disasters caused by bushfires and as Australians love to live in and around the bush they need to be aware of associated risks that may be avoided.
Local fire brigades have guidelines and invaluable advice about keeping your house as safe as you can in the fire season.
With the summer season approaching, it is a good time to access your property to reassure yourself that you have done all you can.
Apart from keeping your gutters clean, your local fire brigade will advise that you have a metal leaf guard installed to protect your roofline from ember attack.
Unfortunatley 85% of house fires are started from embers as far as 5 kilometres away.
The Building Code of Australian also requires that the index rating for the gutter guard in high fire danger areas must be less than 5.
All index ratings of the Leaf Man Gutter Guard are 0, reinforcing the fact that The Leafman Australia’s product made from Colorbond Steel, is a preferred fire resistant product to be used on your gutters.
The Leaf Man Gutter Guard has been chosen to be installed on many fire stations along the east coast of Australia.
