Lithium Battery Fires

Regular extinguishers are useless against Lithium Battery Fires. As these batteries become more readily available, so does the risk of fire caused by a damaged battery going into "Thermal Runaway".

Nothing will stop thermal runaway; you can, however, reduce the risk.

 

The Zenova FX extinguisher range can be used to extinguish Lithium fires, it wont stop thermal runaway but it will extinguish the flames, this can stop the spread of fire and give you time to deal with the situation.

 

The FX range is one of the only extinguishers that can be safely used on every fire class. Not only does this save you costs on training, but in the long run, you save money by not having to purchase multiple types of extinguishers for a single location. This takes the guesswork out of which extinguisher to use in an emergency.
