Another medal on the wall: Ceasefire gets MED Certification

Ceasefire, a name synonymous with fire safety in India has a host of certification from the most reputed quality agencies of the world. It is the only company in the country to have dual certification - Indian + European. To the wide range of medallion that Ceasefire already has, there is yet another decorated addition on its wall of fame - EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED).


A high sea is an extremely challenging environment. High levels of humidity, extremely saline water & choppy tides make ride on sea a bumpy affair. Such harsh environmental conditions have a detrimental effect on equipment on-board, including the extinguisher.


A fire incident on board is a highly likely and an extremely challenging situation. Unlike on land, in sea there is no scope of evacuation from fire. Thus firefighting is the only available option with the mariners. Sailing vessels at any given time carry gallons of fuel and other combustible materials, so a single flash of fire is enough to flare up the entire ship. At sea, there is no provision of a rescue fire tender, thus an efficient fire extinguisher is imperative so that the fire is killed in the nascent stage only.


The challenging environment at sea demands a fire extinguisher that can withstand the harsh marine environment and remain at its optimal best at all times. MED is the most sought after certification that tests the working of equipment under brutal marine environment. The credibility of the MED mark is such that in European Union, only MED marked equipment can be installed on marine vessels.


Ceasefire has a range of MED certified products varying from ABC dry powder, Specialized B+ range, CO2, water, foam, water mist, foam mist, clean agent & wet chemical based fire extinguishers.


Today, the Ceasefire product quality stands endorsed by the most sought after agencies like BIS, BRE, BSI, Eurocert and now MED. The outcome is the best firefighting system that can secure any premises under any conditions ensuring complete peace of mind.
