Wildfire protection for wineries.
winery from wildfire with Frontline.
Introducing the Frontline Wildfire Defense System for wineries.
Frontline offers a first-of-its-kind exterior sprinkler system – a wildfire preparedness solution for wineries that protects both your business and your bottom line.
Developed by a group of firefighters, technologists, and ecologists, the Frontline Wildfire Defense System combines purpose-built hardware with powerful software, so your facility is prepared for wildfire season.
Growth in destruction from wildfires.
For wineries, weather conditions on the West Coast have created the perfect storm: droughts, drier vegetation, increase instances of dry lightning storms, and lower underground water tables. All of these have come together to generate a vicious cycle of more frequent and intense wildfires.
While the wine industry has enjoyed a rejuvenation post-pandemic – restaurant alcohol sales and vineyard visits are climbing steadily – the threat of wildfire destruction still looms large. For the wine world, the increased risk is tangible in the rise in winery insurance premiums. Minimizing damage by protecting on-site investments through preventative strategy is crucial for industry leaders.
Frontline provides active wildfire defense for wineries.
When activated, the system — installed on roof ridges and under covered areas – quickly coats the structure and surrounding landscape with a combination of water and Forest Service-approved, biodegradable foam.
The Class-A foam breaks the surface tension of water, allowing it to soak more quickly and deeply into combustible materials. As a result building materials and vegetation become “too wet” to burn.
The system ensures that embers flying ahead of approaching wildfire — the number one cause of building destruction — are prevented from catching fire.
Employing the same materials that firefighters use everyday, our system is five times more effective than water alone.
Remote activation using the frontline app allows you to evacuate quickly, assured that your property is protected.
Our non-toxic foam is easily washed off buildings once the threat of wildfire has passed, leaving your property protected and aesthetics intact.
Wildfire preparedness for wineries.
Protect all you’ve worked for.
When you install a Frontline Wildfire Defense System at your winery, you can use the Frontline App to remotely activate your exterior sprinkler system, providing continuous protection during a wildfire.
Every system comes with battery backup power as well as cellular, WiFi, and satellite connectivity so you can defend your winery throughout a wildfire event, without putting your staff at risk.
Ember ignition is the number one fire threat to wineries.
One ember is all it takes to destroy a winery.
Wind-blown embers are the number one cause of structure loss during a wildfire. Embers can travel for miles from the perimeter of a fire and when they land on combustible materials on or around a winery they can ignite into a structure fire.
Exterior sprinklers system for wineries provides hydration.
Proactive hydration works.
Preventative hydration is a superior method for your winery fire mitigation plans. Hydration creates an energy barrier that prevents combustible materials from igniting when exposed to embers. Smart defense systems conserve water by intelligently soaking your property over time and well in advance of embers landing on your property – all through the easy-to-use Frontline App.
Prepare your winery for wildfire.
Wineries that prepare for wildfire are poised to succeed.
While post-pandemic re-openings have rejuvenated optimism in the industry, wineries are now grappling with the ever-increasing threat of wildfire. Proactively protecting your investments is crucial for ensuring continuing sales and the longevity of your business.
On-site sales, primarily through tasting rooms, continue to rise for wineries in California and the Pacific Northwest and most wineries have reported increases in tasting room visitation post-pandemic, marking these on-site amenities as essential for business.
