Lightweight extinguisher

May 2010 Fire & Safety

Fire Stryker is an efficient and economical fire extinguisher with its distinctive feature being its use of the remarkable extinguishing capacity of potassium nitrate aerosol. This next generation flame inhibitor is an ultra-light fire suppressor. It is also multipurpose and environmentally-friendly, requiring no maintenance or recharge services. It leaves no residues, is non-toxic and non-corrosive.

Models are compact and come in a 25 cm-long lightweight cylinder, 3 cm in diameter. Depending on the model, the FireStryker can weigh as little as 200 grams. The length of activation is based on the size and the model, but varies from 25 seconds to 100 seconds (depending on model).

Fire Stryker is composed of stable, solid minerals. It does not contain gas, and is not pressurised. The aerosol-like jet is only produced when the charger is ‘scratched’ with its base. While the jet resembles gas, the emission is essentially an inert salt, which, in turn, emits gas that is already present in the atmosphere.
