Even in tight spaces, it is necessary to have precautions in place to tackle a possible fire, and the 1kg Compact Automatic Extinguisher does just that. Its ‘squashed’ design means it will fit enclosed areas such as engine rooms. Supplied with a fixing bracket, it only needs one screw to secure it to the ceiling.

The dry powder contents of the 1kg Compact Automatic Extinguisher will automatically be released when temperatures reach 68 degrees Celsius (hot wnough to avoid it going off accidentally). That’s when the bulb breaks which then allows a fire to be fully extinguished within 8 seconds. Despite its compact size, it can still cover an area of 3 square metres.

Suitable for boats, plant rooms, engine bays, flammable liquid stores.

Types of fire include Class A (wood, paper, cloth, etc), Class B (flammable liquids), and Class C (flammable gas), it is safe around live electrical equipment.

Anticipated lifespan with indoor use and proper maintenance - 5 to 10 years.
