Dandenong Ranges Tuffmesh™ Emberguard Residential Installation


Complete Ember Guard Installation at a Dandenong Residence to combat the constant challenge of fine debris dropping from the neighbour’s two large wattle trees overhanging the property. A solution required protection against clogging in gutters and the accumulation of debris in the valleys and roof gables. Considering the BAL ratings for the area, a product needed to be selected to meet the BAL-29 ratings to meet compliance. 


  • Project Type: Domestic Leaf Proofing and Maintenance Reduction
    Location: Dandenong Suburbs, VIC
  • Roof & Gutter Profile: Corrugated and Klip-Lok®, Standard Gutters
  • Gutter Guard Solution: TuffMesh™ Emberguard
  • Installation Partner: Aussie Gutter Protection
  • Colour: Pale Eucalypt®
  • BAL-Rated: BAL-29 Ratings
  • Meterage: 104.4 metres


A homeowner in the Dandenong suburbs faced recurring issues with their gutter system. Two large wattle trees nearby shed fine flowers and leaves, which clogged the gutters, causing water overflow and potential water damage. Additionally, the large gables and valleys of the roof accumulated leaf litter, creating an environment where seeds could sprout, further complicating the maintenance.

Including a BAL 29 rating was particularly significant for this project, given the fire-prone nature of the Dandenong suburbs. TuffMesh™ Emberguard’s compliance with these standards means the property is better protected against bushfires, offering added security for the homeowners.
