WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY ABOUT EMBER PROTECTION
“A Fine metal mesh screen is a really good choice, something like stainless is going to give you a really good design life but it is also particular strong even if the wire gauges is very fine. 2mm or smaller aperture between the strands of wire give you a fine enough screen so that embers that try to get through those if any do get through are so small that they have very little to no chance to igniting anything combustible behind it. 2mm or finer aperture stainless mesh would be thego-to.”
