A traditional fire extinguisher is great when you’re at home; but what if you’re on vacation or sleeping? This is when passive fire protection is most important.Fire extinguisher ball provides protection 24 hours a day, 365 days a year says export specialist Randy Goldbaum.

“Our fire extinguisher balls are easy to install, easier to use and maintain,” he said.

Available in 4-inch and 6-inch versions, these balls can be easily mounted by anyone, even skilled with a screwdriver, almost anywhere. The 4-inch balls are great for mounting on items like Christmas trees, which Goldbaum points out pose a significant fire risk, especially after they’ve been on display for a while and start to dry out.

“This 4-inch ball can be screwed to the tree trunk,” he said. “If it’s on fire, it will go up first, but the heat won’t let these balls go out. The flame needs to touch it for at least 3 seconds… at that point it will activate the fuse on the bottom of the ball and detonate.”

However, fire extinguisher balls aren’t just for Christmas trees; they can be used almost anywhere that is fire-resistant, as these devices come with brackets that allow them to be mounted anywhere there may be a potential fire hazard.

In addition to the 4-inch model, the larger 6-inch model mounts above boilers, electrical boxes, charging stations, clothes, dryers, car and boat engines, etc.; the effective range when the device detonates is approximately 8 feet.

Extinguisher balls are also very versatile and can extinguish virtually any class of fire that may occur in your home, including Class “A” fires caused by wood, cloth, paper, rubber, and plastic; Class “B” fires involving liquids and fatty oils fires; and Class “C” fires, which are electrical in nature.

The fire extinguishing ball is environmentally friendly and has a shelf life of 5 years; if the ball is never to be used, at the end of its useful life, the contents can be removed and used as fertilizer in your garden.

You can never be too careful when it comes to keeping the lives of your family and loved ones safe; Long Island Egress Pros has led the way for years in keeping local residents safe, first with incredible egress windows and now with the introduction of highly effective fire extinguisher balls.

“Fire waits for no man. Whether you’re awake or asleep, whether you’re home or not, fire doesn’t care,” warns Goldbaum. “A fire extinguisher ball will protect you while you sleep, overriding your smoke detectors. When the device wakes you up, who knows how many areas are burning? Like the exits, this product saves lives.”
