FirePro® aerosol fire suppression
To date, no regulations have been established in law regarding safe storage and handling of lithium batteries. However, FirePro understands the hazards and actively works against them. The fire prevention system has been subjected to preventive testing – and, in cooperation with certification body KIWA, has been officially approved.
A traditional sprinkler system uses water. However, on a lithium-ion fire, water simply acts as an accelerator, with explosive consequences. Water can also cause considerable lasting damage to stored lithium-ion material and this level of damage is simply unnecessary.
FirePro avoids these problems with its unique aerosol extinguishing system: instead of releasing water, the system releases a gas formed of various elements.
A fire is a rapid succession of chemical and physical reactions between atoms and molecules (free radicals).
This prevents the fire from spreading, prevents toxic lithium-ion gases from forming, and prevents the risk of explosions.
Since a lithium-ion fire will typically spread very fast, the FirePro extinguishing technology includes a highly sensitive fire detection system. This activates the extinguishing system before the fire can grow out of control.
