ALWAYS ON DUTY

Your 24 Hour Fire Sentinel

Technical Information

Elide Fire Ball is composed of a lightweight casing of rigid plastic foam with an abrasion-resistant exterior sheathing. Within its interior there is an explosive yield detonator and a variety of fire retardant chemical agents, including dry powders, two-part reactants and liquid components.

Capabilities

The product is recommended for fire extinguishing and surveillance for the following types of fire: Class A – combustible materials (wood, paper, fabric, refuse), Class B – flammable liquids and Class C – flammable gas.

*For classes B, C and electrical fire, Elide Fire Extinguishing Ball is used to surveillance fire only.*

Elide Fire® Extinguising Ball was designed to extinguish fires in: houses, office buildings, hotels, cars, buses, ships and factories etc.

How It Works

Elide Fire Ball is very easy to use and provides extra protection as it self detonates in the presence of fire.

Simple throw the fire ball into the fire. Within 3 to 10 seconds after the contact with the flame, the trigger inside the fire ball detonates the fuse on the ball’s surface. An instant blast occurs and the chemical powder disperses over an area of 8-10 square meters. The outward driving force of the blast pushes the oxygen out of the fire area and the powder extinguishes the fire.

Because it activates automatically, there are no required skills or special training to use it. It is accessible to any user: women, children or elderly people they just have to roll or toss it into the fire base from a safe distance.

When the ball self detonates, it gives a loud warning sound around 120-140 dBA which is not harmful to people.

Advantages

The Fire Ball is a supportive or a booster product for the control of fires.
