Hamilton Classic launch Safety Stick, a ground breaking fire safety device for classic cars.

Hamilton Classic have announced a new fire extinguisher for classic cars that offers a compact, innovative and reliable way of ensuring cherished cars are safe from fire.

Coinciding with the increasing levels of ethanol in fuel, there have been an increasing number of heart-breaking images in the press recently of classic car fires that have robbed enthusiasts of their pride and joy. Not only that but years of investment and hundreds of hours of work have been lost forever.

Most classic car owners know that they need to carry a fire extinguisher, but very few of us actually ensure they are serviced every year or know whether they are actually the right extinguisher for the job. As a result, owners risk reaching for an extinguisher in that moment of desperation, only to find that it does not work.

Alastair Flack, Managing Director of Hamilton Classic Ltd said;

The Fire Safety Stick is a hugely important product because it will make protecting classic cars against fire much easier and more reliable. We believe that many classic cars will be saved in the future thanks to this product and as a company dedicated to providing products that protect and preserve cherished cars, that is our ultimate aim. We have all seen the scary pictures of burnt out classic cars and hope it doesn’t happen to us so the Fire Safety Stick will ensure you have a reliable first line of defence against the unthinkable occurring.

The Fire Safety Stick is a simple and easy way to ensure that you are prepared in the event of a fire with your cherished classic car. It works by chemically, by removing the oxygen and thus extinguishing fires of any type.

It weighs far less than a conventional fire extinguisher, just under 300 grams, and can operate for much longer. Even the smallest model has more than double the discharge time of an old traditional 3.5kg powder extinguisher.
Furthermore, discharging an old-style foam or powder-based unit causes often irreparable damage to interiors, engine components and bodywork. With the Fire Safety Stick from Hamilton Classic, there is no residue left behind after use, meaning that the Fire Safety Stick will not cause any additional damage to your car if discharged.

Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of classic car owners are unclear about which type of extinguisher to use on a particular type of fire on their classic car. The Fire Safety Stick has been designed to take all that guess work away, because it works on all fires. It will extinguish flammable solids, petrol, oils, diesel, paraffin and even electrical and other gas fires all in one unit. It does all that whilst being environmentally friendly and does not emit harmful gases in use.

The Fire Safety Stick can be safely stored under your seat, in the seat pockets or in the glove box for super- quick access in an emergency. There is no need for big heavy traditional fire extinguishers, especially in small vintage and classic sports cars, where space is already tight.

For fires that may start in confined or enclosed spaces, the Fire Safety Stick will continue to emit its active molecules extinguish the fire, allowing you to leave it in the car, shut the door and get yourself to safety.

Unlike those big, bulky and heavy extinguishers of old, Fire Safety sticks need no servicing, refilling, checks or maintenance and have no expiry date.

The Fire Safety stick is really easy to use as well, simply store it an easily accessible place. When needed, all you need to do is strike the activator and point the nozzle at the base of the flames to smother the fire at its core. The ease of which the Fire Safety Stick can be deployed means that it has a quicker time to discharge than traditional extinguishers.

As with all products in their range, Hamilton Classic are offering significant discounts to car clubs and their members.
