SAVE YOUR HOME WITH BARRICADE FIRE RETARDANT GEL

The Wildfire Threat The threat of wildfire is a major concern to more and more homeowners as construction of homes moves into the Wildland Urban Interface. Periods of drought are frightening times for residents of suburban and rural areas across the country.

For those of us who live near natural areas of brush or forest the dry seasons are especially hazardous. Experts advise us to plan firewise landscapes of widely spaced plantings (at least a 30 foot radius of ” Green Zone” around the house), keeping dry combustible plant debris cleaned up, and maintaining low, well-watered ground covers and lawns.

But there is a further step we can take to stop wildfire from destroying our property.

Barricade Fire Gel has saved thousands of homes in the United States and abroad, earning the gratitude of property owners globally.

Barricade is now available to homeowners who can apply the water/gel coating on their own property in front of an approaching wildfire, before retreating to a safe area. When mixed with water at the end of a garden hose, super absorbent polymers in the gel concentrate trap water molecules and suspend them in millions of tiny “bubblets.” Sprayed onto the flammable surfaces of roofs, windows, eaves and walls of a house, vehicles, or propane tanks, a “wet blanket” wrap of Barricade can be applied up to days (with rehydration) before an approaching wildfire. Homeowners can evacuate safely, and firefighting resources can be focused on the wildfire rather than on the already protected structures. Barricade can be washed off with plain water after the fire danger has passed.

One Homeowner’s true life experience with Barricade®
My son spotted the smoke. Winds of 40 mph were gusting in every direction. We raced home. By the time we pulled into the driveway, the flames were already licking the top of the hillside above our home.

Burning BuildingI quickly broke out the Barricade, and I will tell you the truth, my hands were shaking. My fifteen year old son and I were able to get the gallon jugs attached to garden hoses and began to spray down the home. I started on the propane tank, while my son hit the side of the house nearest the flames. While I was spraying the tank, I heard two explosions in rapid succession to the west of us. One neighbor’s propane tank had blown and a car’s gasoline tank had exploded. Those two homes were lost to the flames.

It took about 30 minutes for the two of us to get the home covered. The Barricade coated all sides of the house, including the windows and the eaves. My son got our pets into the Jeep, which he drove to a safe location across the street.

Then the winds shifted. The flames came racing in, driven by 45 mph gusts. I attached three garden hoses together and went out into the brush that surrounds our house. It’s mainly sage brush and cheat grass, and the flames were moving fast.

Thick smoke made it hard to breath. I laid a line of Barricade down in a trench I had dug the previous year to divert rain and snow runoff away from the back of the house.

The winds continued to blow and the fierce brush fire exploded down the hillside. When it reached the line of Barricade— it stopped cold! The winds fanned the flames to the west of us and over past the neighbors’ homes but the fire never made it past the Barricade gel I had laid down in the dried-out brush.

Our whole family breathed a sigh of relief. The flames had come within 50 feet of our home! The photos I took afterward show the dramatic power of the Barricade to stop the flames. I don’t believe I’ve ever had so clear a demonstration of the effectiveness of the technology behind a product. Nor a more timely one!
