Applications of our products
BMD supplies fire-rated products for use in every part of a residential project, including windows, vents, roofing, garage doors, eaves, walls, decking, and fencing.
Roofs provide ample opportunity for fire embers to ignite debris. Fire-rated roofing products, such as asphalt composition shingles, metal, and tile protect against this danger.
Windows are vulnerable to direct flame and radiant heat, which can result in glass breaking and allowing flames to enter the home. Use dual-pane windows with one pane of tempered glass to prevent breakage.
Add extra protection for vehicles and stored valuables by upgrading to a fire-rated garage door.
Vents are one of the main access points for embers to enter into a home. Use a California-approved venting system like Vulcan Vents, which resists intrusion of flames and embers.
Eaves and Soffits
Protect these areas with ignition-resistant or non-combustible materials, such as Shakertown or Dolly Varden.
Walls and Siding
Use ignition-resistant building materials that are WUI-certified from the foundation to the roof. Avoid any untreated wood coverings. Check out our offering from Dolly Varden.
Decking and Fencing
As extensions of a home, decks are often the first structures to come into contact with direct flames, which can travel to the house.

Products we offer
BMD’s product catalogue includes a many brands that can meet or exceed the requirements for fire resistance, without affecting the aesthetics of a home.
Direct flame and intense radiant heat conditions can cause glass breaking, and allow fire and debris into a building. Dual-pane windows, which include a pane of tempered glass, provides additional fire resistance.
The large surface areas of rooftops means ample opportunity for embers and debris ejected from nearby fires to land and spark a new blaze. Fire-rated roofing can help mitigate the risk.
A proper fire-rated garage door can provide critical protection against approaching fire, and in the worst case scenario, allow for more time to escape a blaze.
Air vents are a primary means for ashes and burning embers to enter a home, potentially igniting dry flammables in the process. Fire-rated air vents can prevent this.
EAVES & SOFFITS
Traditional eaves and soffits are not made from fire-resistant materials, and by design could trap burning embers and heat, potentially sparking a fire.
WALLS & SIDING
Fire-rated walls and siding can provide critical protection against embers and extreme heat from nearby blazes, and give occupants a better chance to escape if needed.
