Auto Fire Guard (AFG) is a fire suppression device. It acts in two ways: as a fire extinguisher and as an affordable fire sprinkler system.
You can throw it at a fire or even roll it into a fire. No nozzles to point. No pins to pull.
It can be mounted on the wall with included brackets, or from the ceiling…anywhere a fire is expected to break out.
AFG is activated as soon as fire reaches it or as soon as it reaches the fire, depending on whether you are using it as a fire extinguisher or a fire sprinkler system.
It bursts (not unlike a balloon) and spreads its flame retardant substances in an area of about 900 cubic feet. That’s a space a little smaller than a 10′ x 10′ x 10′ space.
AFG contains an activation technology that is similar to that found in automobile air bags.
The Fireball is not at all dangerous or toxic. The powder, Mono Ammonium phosphate is used ad a food preservative that is actually edible
It contains chemicals similar to those used in dry chemical fire extinguishers.
No. They are harmless to humans, animals, and they’re even good the environment.
Not usually. You should need no more than a vacuum cleaner and a mop and bucket.
AFG is suited to A, B and C fires. This would include paper and wood fires, flammable liquid fires (petroleum based) and electrical fires.
Yes, just not grease fires. For grease fires, try covering the grease with a lid. If nearby furniture is on fire, the AFG ball is a good solution so long as you do not put it in the grease as it may cause the grease to splash when it bursts.
t is perfectly ok to use on electronics. Just not advisable on sensitive electronic equipment like the kind found in scientific laboratories. It is perfectly safe to use on consumer computers or near electrical panels that can handle dust.
