Fire Safety in Rally & Motorsport
Whether you’re an occasional track dayer, or a hardened enthusiast who travels the country to the great variety of circuits the UK has to offer. The conditions which rally and motorsport vehicles are subjected to are the most severe.
Especially for rally cars, the FIA states that one plumbed in and one handheld extinguisher are required.
A fire safety stick can be neatly and safely stored in a glove compartment or can be mounted via our specially designed roll bar mount bracket.
unlike traditional extinguishers the fire safety stick has durability like no other, you can drop it, drill it, cut it and still extinguish it.

Fire Safety Stick outperforms 3 FIA Approved Extinguishers…
Ian Paterson was competing in the recent Argyll Rally when his rally car had a fire.
Ian and his team instinctively activated the cars on board Fire suppression system, as well as two FIA approved handheld extinguishers, which all three of these failed to extinguish the fire.
Knowing the traditional extinguishers were not working, he reached for a Fire Safety Stick on board and used a 100 second discharge Fire Safety Stick. the fire was efficiently extinguished before it could cause further damage.
He was left wishing he had reached for the Fire Safety Stick sooner, instead of using the other handheld devices. It certainly would have saved him a lot less damage and mess!
The Fire Safety Stick has already been proven to be highly effective in several competition fires where traditional extinguishers had been unable to control the fire effectively.
We believe in the power of conversation, and therefore invite governing bodies such as Motorsport UK & the FIA to review these incidents as well as discuss why the Fire Safety Stick is becoming the handheld extinguisher of choice for the rally car community.
“If it wasn’t for the Fire Safety Stick, I would have completely lost my £60k car, I will not hesitate in recommending the product to all rally competitors” said Ian Paterson (Rally Driver during incident)
“We are relieved that most importantly, the team walked away safely and unharmed in this incident. This success story will be part of our driving force of ongoing education in fire safety” said Sergio De Michele (Managing Director – Fire Safety Stick)

“This was just what I was looking for – a fire extinguisher that is light, effective and does not leave a mess. I hope I never have to use it but I am very glad to have one in the Caterham and another in our Airstream trailer.”
“Nice & lightweight & easy to fit in space. Hopefully it will work if it’s ever needed, with luck I won’t be finding out!”
