Fantastic experience with Aussie DIY Solutions. Jeremy and Brendan were both excellent and answered any questions that I had. The gutter guard is great quality and matches my roof colour really well. Great price too. Would happily buy again!

This is the first time I have installed this type of gutter guard and I must say I am very impressed. The quality of the product is top notch and very easy to install. Very easy ordering process and I received my 3 kits to Brisbane in 3 days. I would definitely purchase again.

I have recently purchased my second order from Aussie DIY Solutions. The experience was first class. I had made an error in my first order early this year and the consultant was extremely helpful in helping me sort this. A minimum of fuss and a cash adjustment and all was good. The second order arrived very quickly. Great service.

Product was delivered pretty quickly and everything was well packed, the mesh is good quality and pretty easy to work with just gets a bit fiddly lifting the tiles and tucking the mesh under, i was doing the job myself but with 2 people it would be easier After i did the whole back gutter i got the hang of it. The strips that hold the mesh firm onto the gutter are a great colour match like the mesh and easy to work with, i fixed to the gutter first then tucked mesh under the second row of tiles then did silicone around the ridge capping last. All up im very happy with the quality of the total package, the mesh, strips, and screws, also the wider 1 metre valley mesh is a must to get the span you need to cover the vally properly and lastly its not that hard for the people out there that like to do things themselves. I recommend this product and glad i went with Aussie DIY

I have just used this firm for the first time and the experience has been nothing but positive, The price and quality of the product were great and Jeremy was very helpful both in helping me formulate the order and also in some installation advice when I encountered difficulties due to the location of a solar array on my tile roof. The order was also despatched quickly and arrived faster than the freight company’s predicted ETA. I look forward to using Aussie DIY again for a couple of other projects later this year.

Great services. I contacted them by phone, and Jeremy was so helpful.Delivery was done in no time and perfectly package.In terms of product, I ordered gutter protection for all my house and sheds (130ml). Very easy to install, and looks awesome. I think the worse part is to clean the gutters before installing but very rewarding when thinking that will be no longer necessary to go into the gutters again!

I have a 4 bay shed and the gutters were getting continuously filled with leaves and sticks from the large gum tree in the neighbours yard. Cleaning the gutters was a lot of work as the downpipes would get clogged as well. I fitted this product back in 2020. Since then the gutters are staying clean. The rubbish now blows or flow over onto the ground. So it is much easier to just rake this up from time to time. Very happy with the the result and installation is straight forward.

Great service and spoke to a real person. I think their how to videos can be better quality and their written instructions should match the video. All that said the gutter guard was easy to install and the quality appears to be good, time will tell.

We have a low angle slope on our roof and a high lip on our gutter so I wasn’t sure if the gutter guard would work as it might create a ‘valley’ where the roof meets the mesh. I rang and spoke to Justin (?) and he gave some great advice and suggested we get a custom width to help minimise the issue. There was no extra cost for this and the product arrived fast and was super easy to install. Really happy with the quality and so relieved I don’t have to get on the roof every few weeks to clean 32m of gutters!

Hi Jack,I have just completed the installation of the gutter kits to my house. What a job!The guys that fit this stuff for a living here in Qld certainly earn their money. 😀Whilst simple enough to install, I found the valleys the most back breaking and hardest to do. Admittedly the 33 degree days didn’t help my cause. But now after four long days the 100m of gutter protection is up, I’m pleased to say it looks and works great.I have to mention that the delivery of the product was fantastic, given that it was received two days before Christmas when ordered the week prior.Kind regardsRoy

What is ember guard?

Ember guards have a hole size of less than 2mm and cover gutters, roof valleys and roof space openings to prevent embers from igniting leaves and debris. The ember guard gutter mesh fixes to the front lip of the gutter and the roof: metal or tiled roofs. The ember guard ski slope angle encourages leaves and debris to fall naturally to the ground.

A gutter guard mesh system protects your home from leaves, dirt, and debris ignited by windborne embers, especially in fire-prone areas. Not only do ember guards prevent ember attacks, but they are also effective at keeping out small debris that clogs your gutters – such as pine needles, dirt, etc. Our Ember Mesh kits are high-quality ember guard mesh that complies with the Australian standard for bushfire attack levels.

Secure a complete fireproof solution with solar mesh for solar panels. While an ember guard is unsuitable for solar panels, solar mesh protects your panels from birds, possums and debris, which are fire hazards.

We offer the best ember mesh and the widest selection of colours, sizes, and thicknesses. You can choose from 21+ Colorbond® colours to ensure the product matches your roof, so no one will even notice it’s protecting them!

Difference between gutter guard and ember guard

The primary difference between an ember guard and a gutter guard (leaf guard) is the hole size. Many gutter guards are fire-resistant and non-combustible, but a gutter guard with a hole size of less than 2mm meets the ember guard compliance in bushfire-prone areas. An ember guard gutter mesh must be aluminium unless in a bushfire-prone area with a BAL rating of BAL-40 or BAL-FZ. A steel mesh or bronze mesh is required in the BAL-40 to BAL-FZ ratings.

Why is ember guard so important in bushfire-prone areas?

Around 80% of all homes destroyed in Australian bushfires are due to stray burning embers igniting debris in gutters, valleys, and roof spaces which can ignite roof insulation and other property structures.
Bushfire protection is a serious concern for most homeowners. A proper ember mesh that covers cavities and spaces in your home can provide protection.

Not only do ember guards prevent ember attacks, but they are also effective at keeping out small debris that clogs your gutters – such as pine needles, dirt and etc. Our Ember Mesh kits are high-quality ember guard mesh that complies with the Australian standard for bushfire attack levels.

What are ember guard requirements?

Ember guards, unlike gutter guards, must have an aperture size of 2mm or less. The gutter guards must be a non-combustible mesh to meet the ember guard compliance in bushfire-prone areas. An ember guard gutter mesh must be aluminium unless in a bushfire-prone area with a BAL rating of BAL-40 or BAL-FZ. A steel mesh or bronze mesh is required in the BAL-40 to BAL-FZ ratings.

Is your ember guard compliant mesh?

Yes. Our ember guards comply with the Australian standard, meeting the low bushfire attack level low-BAL-29. Ember mesh has a hole size of less than 2mm to prevent burning embers from igniting leaves and debris in the gutters.

We offer the best ember mesh and the widest selection of colours, sizes, and thicknesses. You can choose from 21+ Colorbond® colours to ensure the product matches your roof, so no one will even notice it’s protecting them!

How do Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL ratings) affect my ember guard choices?

Australian standards dictate ember guard requirements for specific bushfire-prone areas across Australia. The Australian standards guide building code and ember guard compliant products and installation. These ratings for each bushfire-prone area include the following:

  • BAL LOW indicates low risk from ember attack, heat, or flames and does not specify ember guard or gutter guard products that best suit gutter protection needs.
  • BAL-12.5 indicates risk from ember attack, debris or radiant heat up to 12.5KW/m2. Our aluminium ember guard mesh is non-combustible and compliant with BAL-12.5 Australian standards.
  • BAL-19 indicates a significant risk of ember attack, burning debris or radiant heat up to 19KW/m2. Our aluminium ember guard mesh is non-combustible and compliant with BAL-19 Australian standards.
  • BAL-29 indicates a high risk of ember attack, burning debris or radiant heat up to 29KW/m2. Our aluminium ember guard mesh is non-combustible and compliant with BAL-29 bushfire attack level.
  • BAL-40 indicates an extreme risk of ember attack, burning embers or radiant heat up to 40KW/m2. BAL-40 ratings require a steel gutter mesh and bronze ember guards.
  • BAL-FZ (BAL Flame Zone) indicates a severe risk of ember attack, flammable debris or radiant heat with an excess of 40KW/m2. BAL- ratings require steel gutter mesh and bronze ember guards.

If you require a fire ember guard or steel mesh for BAL-40 or BAL-FZ levels, please ask whether we can provide you with a custom gutter guard product.

What variations are available for ember guard mesh?

We offer mesh variations to intrinsically ember-proof your gutters, valleys and roof cavity openings.

You can select from over 20+ different Colorbond® colours that match your roof. Whether you have tile or metal roofing, you’ll find the right product here.

We offer 10metre ember guard kits for the four main roof types: Klip-Lok®, Trindek®, corrugated and tiled roofs. Our gutter guard kits come in 10, 20 & 30 meterage in the four main roof types.

Select your width, too, with options ranging from 250mm to 1000mm wide to fit any size roof, gutter or valley system.

How do we ensure our ember guard is quality mesh?

Our woven aluminium bushfire mesh features a tiny 1.9mm hole aperture and is at least 0.5mm thick – making it the strongest currently available.

It’s also double-rolled at the edges to prevent fraying and increase strength with an Interpon D1000 powder-coating. We trust our gutter guard products, and our ember mesh has an astounding 20-year warranty on the mesh!

When protecting your home, nothing lowers the risk of a structure with as minimal cost and effort as installing bushfire mesh on your roof.

Shop now and buy the best there is right here at Aussie DIY Solutions – invest in the safety and security of your home, your investment, and above all else, your family!

What are other ember guard applications?

Ember guards are also suitable for gutter protection from fine leaf debris. Ember guards perform the role of gutter guard to keep the gutter clear of fine-leaf trees, such as pine trees, she-oaks, jacarandas and wattles. Our smaller aperture size ensures that your gutters stay clear.
