Most vehicle fleets carry fire extinguishers, but they are typically of the old-fashioned, traditional type, most likely containing dry powder. But now there is a much better solution available to fleet managers. The Fire Safety Stick has numerous advantages over those outdated, heavy, bulky, pressurised systems.
Firstly, it’s incredibly light, weighing from just 215g (compared to 2.25kg of the smallest dry powder extinguisher). This weight saving means lighter unladen weight and so aids lower fuel costs. That 2kg weight-saving could mean an extra parcel or two to be carried before the vehicle is at its maximum weight. The Fire Safety Stick can be mounted in any orientation within the cabin, giving much greater flexibility and potentially faster access in case of an emergency.
It leaves no damaging mess or residue. The damage from the discharge of traditional extinguishers is well documented, often resulting in very costly clear-up operations or even a potential vehicle write-off. At the very least the vehicle will be out of action for some considerable time. Even without an actual fire, these are often discharged by accident. With the Fire Safety Stick, there is no longer a risk of this at all. Firstly, it is almost impossible to accidentally activate it. But if it was purposely activated, simply open the vehicle windows, to vent the totally harmless and environmentally friendly vapour out, it will leave remaining evidence of its activation. In fact, there have been several occasions where a vehicle has had an engine fire, quickly extinguished by the Fire Safety Stick, and once checked it was safe to do so, the driver was able to continue with their journey! Plus, are you aware of the health dangers exposed to the vehicle operator from inhaling/ingesting the discharge from a dry powder extinguisher? Typical effects include diarrhoea, respiratory tract irritation and a potentially dangerous elevated heart rate.
The Fire Safety Stick needs no servicing during its 15-year shelf life. So, not only is it saving expense on fuel costs, it is saving the business a considerable amount on an external servicing company coming out to complete the annual servicing. Then, there is the company administration required and vehicle “off-road” time to consider when carrying out the servicing. The Fire Safety Stick needs only the most basic regular maintenance checks, but these can be easily done, in-house at the end of a shift for example. Plus, because the Fire Safety Stick has a shelf life of at least three times that of those traditional extinguishers there is an added significant cost saving.
A final point to note is that in some common vehicle fires it’s far more effective than that of dry powder or foam extinguisher. These types of extinguishers are very directional and work with gravity, meaning if there is a fire under the vehicle, such as with hydraulic fluids within the transmission system, they are much less effective, whereas the Fire Safety Stick is able to surround the area with the active agent, engulfing the fire.
All in all, it can be clearly seen that the Fire Safety Stick is the fire extinguisher of choice for fleet managers with all its cost, safety, and administration benefits.
