WUI FACTS

We have lived it 

An automated roof fire suppression system is a necessary safety barrier to help reduce structure fires caused from wildlife urban interface (WUI).

Airborne embers can travel miles from the fire front and land on a home or business unexpected.

This can cause loss of life and property within minutes. According to Verisk’s 2019 Wildfire Risk Analysis 4.5 million U.S. homes were identified at high or extreme risk of wildfire, with more than 2 million in California alone.

The impact of wildfires on both the quality of life and the economy of communities are significant and require innovative strategies to reduce the tremendous losses that have occurred in the past few years.

Embers are the most significant cause of home ignition. Recent research indicates that two out of every three homes destroyed during the Witch Creek fire in San Diego County were ignited either directly or indirectly by wind-dispersed, wildfire-generated, burning or glowing embers and not from the actual flames of the fire.

These embers can ignite fires on your home or business in several ways. In order to have a wildfire-safe home, three equally important factors must be implemented:

1) the wise selection of building materials and designs that will help the home or business resist airborne embers from a wildfire

2) the home or business must have adequate defensible space, based on the wise selection, placement, and maintenance of near-home vegetation

3) the installation of an exterior fire suppression system.
