How it Works

Defensible Space

The key to protecting your property from the threat of wildfires is to create a strong defensible space. Defensible space is the buffer you create between your property and the wildland areas that surrounds it. If you’re wondering how to protect your property from wildfires, PHOS-CHEK fire retardant is a great non-invasive way to be one step ahead of a disaster.

UrbnTek can pretreat vegetation with fire retardant to increase defensible space around your property. The fire retardant is the same product you’ve seen dropping from planes during virtually every US wildfire, but without the red dye. The fire retardant is colorless, odorless, and environmentally friendly. One application can protect your property for 6-8 months.

PHOS-CHEK Fire Retardant

Wildfires are unpredictable, intimidating, devastating, and when you live in a community with the constant threat of wildfires, it’s easy to feel helpless. But now you have the power to take control and reduce the risk of losing everything. PHOS-CHEK fire retardant is a great non-invasive way to be one step ahead of a disaster. PHOS-CHEK is a ground applied, long-term fire retardant that is used when season-long protection is needed. The fire retardant is used in high-risk areas, underneath utility lines, around critical infrastructure, and protects wildland-urban interface areas. PHOS-CHEK can be sprayed ahead of the fire season or during an oncoming wildfire threat. The fire retardant chemically alters wildland fuels to render them non-flammable and will completely stop the spread of a fire.
