While rapid innovations happen in the fire industry worldwide, a key question that we need to answer is whether we can fight fire without harming the planet we're trying to save. Thankfully, the answer is a resounding yes, and Ceasefire is at the forefront of this critical revolution.
Presenting green firefighting technologies, a ray of hope in the battle against both fire and environmental degradation. For example, Traditional firefighting foams, often laced with harmful chemicals like PFAS, offer effective firefighting capability but leave a toxic legacy. On the other hand, chemical-based extinguishants whether gaseous or powder-based offer a very potent fire solution but are again harmful to the environment.
This unsustainable reality pushed us toward innovative alternatives, and Ceasefire is paving the way.
Ceasefire Fluorine-Free Foam Technology
Conventional chemical-based foam fire extinguishers include Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) or Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which are fluorine chemicals that exhibit prolonged stability and linger in the environment for extended periods. Unfortunately, they pose a significant threat to both the environment and human health, being categorised as persistent organic pollutants, commonly referred to as "forever chemicals."
“ In India, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has proposed a draft policy that suggests a ban on the manufacture and import of foam-based fire extinguishers containing specific ozone-depleting substances (ODS) by 2024 and aims to phase out their use by 2028. ”
Adhering to evolving environmental regulations and global sustainability goals, Ceasefire's Fluorine-Free technology offers environmentally safe firefighting solutions without compromising on its fire extinguishing capability. Ceasefire’s Fluorine-Free Foam (FFF) Fire Extinguishers signify a noteworthy leap towards a more responsible future in fire safety, free from harmful earth-damaging substances.
Ceasefire Lithium Battery Fire Extinguishers
From powering laptops to propelling electric vehicles, lithium batteries have become the lifeblood of the modern world. While lithium-ion batteries offer numerous benefits such as high energy density, prolonged durability, and rapid recharging capabilities, they also pose a risk due to their flammable electrolytes. This makes them vulnerable to thermal runaway, which can lead to potential ignition when exposed to physical damage, overcharging, or manufacturing defects.
Designed for the specific dangers posed by Lithium-Ion Battery fires, Ceasefire's extinguishers offer a versatile solution. This is especially crucial in light of the alarming statistics reported by the Indian Institute of Fire Engineers (IIFE) - a total of 100 lithium-ion battery fires in India in 2022. These specialised extinguishers feature a gel-based agent that not only efficiently tackles lithium battery fires but also distinguishes itself as an environmentally conscious choice. Engineered to swiftly cool and encapsulate flames, the biodegradable agent, free from PFOS/PFAS, minimises environmental impact.
Ceasefire Clean Agent FK (Fluoroketone) Based Fire Extinguishers
Ceasefire's range of Clean Agent FK-based extinguishers, stands out as one of the most powerful and environment-friendly options, boasting a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 1 and an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of 0. What makes these extinguishers truly versatile clean agents is that they can be used in the human presence even in confined spaces without causing suffocation as it does not displace oxygen.
The FK-based extinguishers are non-flammable, non-corrosive, and residue-free, coupled with a high dielectric strength, and no thermal shock/freeze burn factor ensuring it is absolutely safe when applied to high-value and sensitive electronic equipment. With FK causing no collateral damage and exhibiting exceptional efficacy against fires, it proves to be an ideal choice for applications in locations such as offices, factories, homes, data centres, banks, hospitals, museums, and more.
Ceasefire Watermist-Based Fire Extinguishers
Ceasefire's Watermist Fire Extinguishers set themselves apart by providing a 100% green firefighting solution. Unlike other extinguishers that utilise damaging chemicals, Ceasefire's Watermist Extinguishers use pure water, which is broken down into minuscule droplets that rapidly evaporate in the fire zone extinguishing the flames and causing no collateral damage.
These eco-friendly extinguishers are an ideal choice for application on electronics and sensitive equipment. Moreover, the Watermist technology ensures the safety of humans during its use, establishing it as a comprehensive and environmentally conscious firefighting solution.
In the battle against fire, Ceasefire isn't just extinguishing flames; we're blazing a trail towards a sustainable future. With our innovative green firefighting solutions, we're protecting lives, the environment, and the promise of a safer tomorrow. Join us in rekindling hope for a world where fire safety and environmental responsibility go hand in hand.
