Fire Safety Stick
Environmentally friendly and can safely be stored for easy access in an emergency.
Inside it’s a solid resin of Potassium nitrate. Once the chemical reaction begins, this is split into nitrogen gas (N2) which acts as the propulsion/creates the pressure. And potassium free radicals(K+) these have to bind onto the oxygen and so therefore take the oxygen away from the fire. By binding onto the oxygen they create potassium oxide (K2O). - very fine particles that blow away - totally inert.
How does the Fire Safety Stick work?
The Fire Safety Stick (FSS) is a manual, portable fire extinguishing device. It uses a Potassium powder jet (a unique method among conventional fire extinguishers) that employs the vaporisation of the powder in the environment followed by the condensation of its extinguishing substance. It works by interrupting a fire’s chain of reaction (the “auto-catalyst” of the fire). Fire Safety Stick 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 struck with its base. The produced aerosol jet is free of thrust and is essentially an inert salt that emits gas already present in the atmosphere.
