The newest innovation in fire protection
Discover the Fireball Extinguisher – a great option to complement existing firefighting products. Get peace of mind that is simple in design, and the size of a small ball. One simple solution can keep you safe. The Fireball Extinguisher is a simple, safe, yet lifesaving and cost effective device that self activates on contact with open flames.
Fireball is a new and innovative concept in firefighting. It is effectively a dry chemical powder based fire extinguisher that excels at spot protection but can be used equally effectively against fires generally.
The bursting effect cannot harm you or animals, or damage property. It is completely safe. No part of the device is heavy or strong enough to cause damage on impact. It is highly portable, stable and operates within about 3 seconds. It requires minimal training, is light and easily carried and is highly effective.
When the ball comes into contact with a naked flame, the ball will detonate within a few seconds and extinguish the fire.
What area does it cover?
Up to 15m2 and in some tests knocked down fires in an area of 30sqm.
What fire types or classes can it be used on?
4 classes of fire which are A, B, C and F. However, when used on flammable liquid fires it must be used in a static position. The fire ball can also be used on F class fires in the static setup position.
Fire extinguishing classifications
Class A – Wood, paper, textiles, plastic, rubber
Class B – Flammable liquids, fuels or paints rubber
Class C – Electrical fire
Class F – Cooking oils and fats
