Launcher Fire Extinguishers

A real game-changer in the world of fire protection, our Launcher Fire Extinguishers utilise the latest technology. This allows them to automatically activate when there’s a fire present and no-one around to do anything about it. These 24-hour fire extinguishers are the world’s first portable fire extinguisher which makes them easy to use in a variety of areas.

Combining manual and automatic actuation, a unique discharge system firstly allows the extinguisher to work just as any ordinary fire extinguisher would. Thanks to the hose and lever handle, you can simply pick up the extinguisher, aim, and activate as you set your sights on tackling a fire while working your way towards safety.

How Do Launcher Fire Extinguishers Work?

Tackling a fire when no-one is around was once all but impossible. But, thanks to the Laucher fire extinguisher, your property can benefit from fire protection 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.

Thanks to the two heat sensors on either side of the extinguisher head, the fire extinguisher is automatically triggered when temperatures reach 68°C. Depending on whether one of both of the sensors has been activated, the extinguisher’s contents are released through either one or both sides of the fire extinguisher. This then enables any fires to be put out within the proximity of the fire extinguisher without any intervention.

BSI Tested, UKCA approved and CE Marked, these 24-Hour fire extinguishers are also capable of tackling fires even when the fire gets too big. The firefighter can launch the unit towards the fire which turns to the fire extinguisher into a mini suppression system while you get yourself to safety.

You can rely on the Launcher fire extinguisher to effectively protect your property from any potential fires, with your particular requirements met thanks to the variety of sizes which are available.

What Fires Are Launcher Extinguishers Safe To Use On?

Capable of safely and effectively tackling fires involving Class A (wood, paper, cloth, etc), B (flammable liquids), C (gas - but never put out a gas fire if the gas cannot then be turned off) and even live electrical equipment fires, these extinguishers are known as a multi-purpose extinguishant.

However, it is important to remember that powder fire extinguishers are becoming increasingly less recommended for indoor use. The updated British Standard 5306-8:2012 Selection and positioning of portable fire extinguishers – Code of Practice, states the following:

"5.4.3 Use of powder extinguishers - The discharge of a powder extinguisher within buildings can cause a sudden reduction of visibility and can also impair breathing, which could temporarily jeopardize escape, rescue or other emergency action. For this reason, powder extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment."

Of course, this no longer becomes a concern if the extinguishers activate when no-one is even on the premises. So, if there is a high risk of fire on your premises – particularly during unoccupied periods, the Launcher powder fire extinguisher might just be the perfect choice.
