FIRENXT Fire Extinguisher Ball is the first line of defense against fires. The ball is not a replacement for a fire extinguisher, fighting fire is dangerous and we recommend on site of any fire you call the emergency services and vacate the area in a controlled and safe manner. However, by equipping your premises with the FIRENXT Fire Extinguisher Balls, you limit the chances of accidental damaging fires. If used immediately before the fire has a chance to spread, the FIRENXT can stop the fire in it’s tracks.
The FIRENXT Fire Extinguisher Ball is also fully automatic and there are no pins to remove or triggers to depress and best of all, you don’t need any experience or training to use the FIRENXT – even children and the elderly can operate it.
We recommend that fighting fires is left to professionals but should a ball be used on a fire before is become dangerous, it will certainly minimise the damage, property loss and ultimately save lives. The FIRENXT Fire Extinguisher Ball may be also used to create an escape route from fire.
Sometimes it happens that people do not notice a fire in its initial stages, with the first minutes being often the most crucial. Before people realize there is a problem, the flames may grow into a full grown fire that would block all the escape routes, or they may suffocate from the smoke produced in a fire. Smoke poses a real danger since it can kill even faster than the fire itself. With this in mind, it is inevitable to have a fire fighting device at one’s disposal, which could be used to put out the fire completely or at least to create an escape route for the endangered persons.
What is often viewed as a common problem is inadequate maintenance of a fire fighting equipment. Generally, such equipment needs regular checks and maintenance to ensure it is in working order. Tubes and pipes supplying water or a chemical agent may get clogged up, pressure in dispersers of chemical powder based fire extinguisher may fall and the chemicals may clump, which could result in the equipment being clogged when urgently needed.
Often it takes some time before the fire fighting crew gets to the site where the fire had broken out and meanwhile the fire spreads rapidly, potentially inflicting human and property or material losses. The FIRENXT Fire Extinguisher Ball is a very safe and effective way, to literally stop the fire in it’s tracks!
